4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Took the family (7 adults, 1 toddler) for Christmas Dinner. Half of us had sushi, the other half hibachi. They have a good menu. Food was pretty good.

“The sunday brunch is worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The Sunday brunch is worth the wait til Sunday. The food was great and you get the good stuff done up right without the price of "at your table" cooking...

“Better than you'd expect!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I just relocated from LA and let's face it, aside from NYC and Japan itself, you probably aren't going to find better sushi on the planet. So let's just say my standards are very high. I've been sampling places in the Hagerstown/Frederick area and while none can live up to Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, Sakura presents some wonderful combinations of flavors at reasonable prices for the area. It doesn't taste like cheap sushi but doesn't break your bank either! My first visit to them was a little disappointing, got my standard Rainbow Roll and it was a bit skimpy and the fish wasn't as fresh I would've hoped. Decided to give it a second chance a month later and went for two rolls of their own creating - that's when the wow factor kicked in. They have a roll on their appetizer menu wrapped in cucumber in a light broth that is utterly refreshing. Take the risk and order one of their unique rolls if you want to get all you can out of Sakura.

“Consistently Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My family and I have been going to Sakura's for years. We started when they were a few buildings down in a smaller place.

My family like the sushi and I prefer the habachi. No matter what we order, the food is always both visually appealing and excellent tasting. They periodically add or delete some of the items to keep it fresh. The prices are reasonable for a Japanese Steak house and definitely worth the price.

The habachi side of the restaurant is entertaining and has plenty of seating for couples or families. The other side of the restaurant is typical, tables and booths. The decor is nice and fits the restaurant well. Everything is in excellent condition.

The waitstaff is always courteous and come by the table often to check on things.

We go about once a month and for special occassions. It is definitely worth the time and money to go!
