Enjoyed the Bento Box lunch. Shrimp katsu was very good. Reasonably priced and excellent service. Will return.

“Worst sushi experience ever, gluten free people steer clear of Sakura”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We met friends for lunch at Sakura on a Sunday afternoon. I should have known that this was not going to be a good experience when we asked our server for some tamari/gluten free soy sauce for our table and she didn't know what it was. Then we asked about gluten free options on the lunch buffet and there were none. 75% of the sushi on the buffet had tempura or crab stick with wheat gluten. They would not permit us to order the sashami lunch special, because it was a Sunday. Obviously, they push their Sunday buffet and don't want to accommodate people with allergies or gluten intolerance. So we ended up ordering the sashami appetizer, which was 8 pieces for $9. The fish was fishy smelling and tasting, not a good sign of freshness. We had to pay $3 extra for a small bowl of sushi rice to go with it. It is several hours later, and everyone in our party feels terrible. Upset stomachs, headaches. Sakura is by far the worst sushi experience I've ever had from the unaccommodating staff to the quality of the sushi.

“Another Chinese Japanese restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

I hate to admit most Americans can't tell a Chinese from a Japanese person. Well this restaurant is a Chinese restaurant. There is not one Japanese person in the restaurant. Basically it is an over price Chinese buffet without the buffet. Chinese people do not know how to cook Japanese food. Would you go to a Mexican restaurant ran by Germans? Of course not. Japanese food is delicious and Chinese people don't know how to make Japanese food.

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.
