“Teppanyaki, Sushi, Sakura has it all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a great place to take the kids (and adults) who want entertainment with their dinner. The Teppanyaki cooks make everyone feel like they're part of the event. The food was good and the servings were large. We also had sushi which was pretty good, the shrimp tempura roll and the fresh tuna were the best. The scallops were a bit fishy tasting. Overall a very good experience, but not cheap.

“Teppan Cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is a fun place to visit. They cook teppan style right in front of you at large tables. You do sit with strangers if you don't have a large party. The cooks are artist who entertain with their cooking. It is fun and they have good sushi as well as a really interesting menu.

“Pretty Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Sakura has been an old time favorite of ours. The food is always fresh, but the atmosphere seems run down. The restaurant needs to be refreshed. I appreciate their outside bar area, it makes for a great place to meet friends.

“Good Lunch Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I was in town on business and stopped in for lunch. Chef was very nice, prices were excellent and fish was fresh. I had the super/double salmon roll, a tuna roll and miso soup with an iced tea. I think my bill was $13 and the salmon roll was half price, due to a special they were running.

I sat at the sushi bar and the service was very good. I would go back if I'm in town again...

“Generic, but well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is a very typical, hibachi style Japanese steak house but they do it very well. The staff is very good and the food is excellent quality with a much better than average sushi menu. A fun place for a family meal. We eat here pretty often.
