We really love this place an have gone many times when in flagstaff... The service is excellent, and the teppanyaki chefs are really fun and funny, they interact with the table quite a bit. The prices are a little high compared to other more casual restaurants, but no more so than your average teppanyaki place. We have always just walked... More

This restaurant has great service and the best food in town. The atmosphere is fun and exciting for all ages. Chef Antonio was very personable and fun. My 4 1/2 year old even commented on how Antonio was a "great cook and made great food".

We took our daughter to Sakura for her 21st birthday. Our family had so much fun! Our chef was Antonio and he was very exciting to watch. We had never been to a teppanyaki restaurant before so we were all very impressed with the skill of the chef and the quality of the food. We would most definitely go back... More

It was fun watching all the new college kids in training to be wait staff. The service was great. The sushi rolls, however, were not great. There is a good selection of rolls, especially if you like tempura fried ingredients. However our fish seemed watery and bland. It was convenient to the hotel and we were tired.
