“Fast. Fresh. Delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

We went to Sakura to had our dinner and enjoy it. Everything was really fresh, very delicious, very fast serving. A lot of sushi variety, for every taste. Amazing idea of spinning sushi bar, it helps to choose your eyes what they wants and also you can get something while you wait for another order from the menu. Hopefully we will return there once again. Thank you

“I love!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I started going here in November time to get the Sushi to Go that's advertised on the board outside. The sushi is fresh, menu is amazing and the staff friendly.

Belfast needs Sakura.

“fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Everything about this place is wonderful. The staff are friendly and efficient, the menu has something for everyone and the food is superb. It is not expensive and I would highly recommend anyone looking for a nice night out to start at this restaurant.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

I called in for lunch on Sunday and sampled the sushi train which was lovely and fresh and totally different for Sunday lunch. Staff we're very friendly and accommodating for my little boy. I'll definitely be back!

“Authentic Japanese Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant on a Sunday evening after looking online for a restaurant and finding many restaurants in Belfast close on Sunday evenings. After being a little bit panicked that we may not find anywhere, we drove around until we found one that was open and it happened to be Sakura. Well, that was a lucky find for us. Parking was easy outside. The place was suprisingly empty with only a few tables occupied, however we were seated in front of the conveyor of food. Not being a fan of that ready made option we made our choices from the menu. Some of the things we ordered were salted fish and deep friend tofu which were delicious. The staff seemed very stern but professional. Quite different to what we were generally used to. It seemed quite quaint to hear the japanese staff speaking with Northern Irish accents.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our food and the waitresses were very efficient with bringing drinks and food.
They didn't rush us but I couldn't help feeling that we shouldn't hang around after we were finished but that might just have been me :-)
I would recommend going there to anyone who llikes Japanese Cuisine, if not there were other restaurants close by to choose from that were open on a Sunday evening too.
