Great sushi and nice ambience

You can order sushi or you can order teppanyaki (teppan style). This means a cook comes preparing food right in front of your table on a huge griddle. The Sakura restaurant is inside the Doubletree Hilton.

Would never eat here again. The staff was outright terrible. They seemed to be very young and not service oriented at all. They sat us at one of the grill-tables got our drink orders and that was it. We sat for over 45 minutes waiting for our chef to come and prepare our meals. We had to ask for drink... More

Staying at doubletree hotel on tour of the west. Decided to eat in hotel as weather was wet. First time in teppanyaki, service was very good and chef entertaining. Mid week the restaurant was not busy. Food plentiful , you don't need a starter. Prices reasonable, good relaxing evening. Look out for the ring of fire!

This place was good for what it was. It's a smaller restaurant inside the Doubletree hotel. It was extremely busy for a Tuesday night and because of how busy they were and how small the restaurant is, it was crazy loud in there. We made reservations earlier in the day thankfully. Our seven year old just recently experienced a teppanyaki... More

Fish overcooked and scallops. The reason to go here is the atmosphere. Two sauces were not good. Service was excellent with asking for split bills for our group of 12.

We came here with a large party and Trevor was our server and he did a great job! A majority of our party ordered sushi and everything was great! I had the Firecracker and Dragon roll. Of course the table chefs were great too. We will be back!
