Sakura at Doubletree by Hilton

Delicious! Benihana type atmosphere, yummy food, large portions and friendly staff. Kind of spendy if you're on a budget but definitely worth it.

Did not like the food, everything was very salty, did not like the athmosphere, did not like the smoke that the table cooking generated. Could not wait to get out and breathe some fresh air. They definitely need better ventilation. Maybe the cooking for a large party next to us exacerbated the evening, but honestly overall a bad meal with... More

They would not allow my daughter who can not eat sushi to order teppanyaki unless we sat at a teppanyaki table...but that wasn't what the rest of our party wanted to order. And no offer to try to figure anything out. We had to go somewhere else. ordTeppankaki

Living in Flagstaff over 30 years, I've been to Sakura a few times. This last time was pretty similar to all the other visits. The food is just "ok". The chef's have always been entertaining (we had kids at our table and that helps). The food seems pretty high priced to me, and you typically need a reservation. The Friday... More
