Every time we visit Flagstaff we eat here. Never a bad meal. Food always good and service is fast. They time out the courses very well, so you don't have to wait too long in between. Our "show" was not quite as good as usual. Not sure if our guy was new or not. His knife skills were not up... More

I'm 69 years old and came in off the road tired and hungry. Stayed at Doubletree so just walked into Sakura. Apparently you're not supposed to do that. The desk I was supposed to formally check in with also served the attached regular restaurant where I've always eaten before...thought that was for that restaurant. So there's suddenly a bunch of...

Highly, highly recommend them both... More

This was the first time I had been to a restaurant like this and I was blown away with the graciousness of Chef Antonio. He entertained us throughout the meal preparation and did an excellent job of making the children a big part of the fun. We didn't know what to expect but had a great time and would definitely...

Chef Antonio prepared a great meal, was very personable & made the "show" fun for the kids. He made sure to cook the food to our liking. We'll definitely go back & hopefully see Chef Antonio again!

Wonderful place for a birthday celebration for youngsters -- our chef, Antonio, was so engaged and wanted to impress our little guy - he made the biggest volcano ever! Very impressive. We will be back! Thank you, Chef, for a memorable 10th birthday celebration!

The food at this restaurant was some of the best food we had whilst travelling America! Cooked in front of us by an experienced chef who also made it fun by doing tricks with the rice and fire! Would love to come back one day!

We dined at this restaurant and had both teppanyaki and sushi. The sushi was actually very tasty. The teppanyki Chef Antonio was VERY friendly and put on a great "show". The service was great.
