“Best sushi and jumbo prawns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Sakura is one of my personal favourites when it comes to Japanese food in Karachi. The jumbo prawns are excellent. Sashimi, sushi, California rolls are great in terms of flavour, quality and hygiene. Try the red snapper tepenyaki and finish off with fried ice cream. Bon apetit!

“great view, decent service, not the best japanese food in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

The view is quite calming. Been there a few times. Its mostly populated by people who're there for a business lunch or families or couples. Not the most happening place. The sort where a family of five would feel as much at home as a couple wearing matching shirts. The chef's good but not as creative or daring with sushi and sashimi as the guy who's doing it at Fujiyama, Avari Towers.

“SECOND BEST JAPANESE RESTAURANT IN KARACHI”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Ambiance wise it is the best Japanese Restaurant in town, housed in Pearl Continental. My husband loves to devour Sushi & Sashimi and i would go for food prepared on hot plate with Teriyaki sauce.
