The atmosphere was pleasant, service reasonably prompt. The servers were attentive even though the restaurant was very busy. Clearly this is a popular spot in Whitehorse.

I am always a little nervous about eating Japanese in a very remote location, In this instance my concerns were misplaced. The food was very good - the standard you would expect in your neighbourhood Japanese restaurant. The seafood was fresh. The serving sizes were generous. The service friendly and efficient. We walked out of the Sakura restaurant feeling that... More

Ordered a bento box to go and it all tasted great. Plenty of food for a good price. Service was fast and food made up fresh

Brave the rather garish signboarding and unpromising exterior to get inside this place. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, we had good food reasonably quickly delivered, and all at good value for money. Having had a really good meal we went back there again a week later and were remembered - impressive.

The atmosphere is comfortable and they have two Tatami rooms. There is great value in their lunch Bento Box. I used to love the Sukiyaki here, but not on the menu any longer :(. Service is always prompt and quality of food very good.

My fiancé and I love sushi do we had to try sushi in Whitehorse during our road trip up north. We were very impressed. Food was very tasty! One of the best dynamite rolls I've ever had. Fresh crunchy deep fried prawns, I could feel the heat off that roll as soon as it arrived. They even put asparagus in... More

Very nice atmosphere, with good prices for the amount of food you get. This is a great place for couples that are looking to get something other than just a burger place. Great service with interesting adventure choices available.

This ho hum restaurant so nicely decorated puts out some pretty poor food. The sushi better from the take out counter at your local supermarket. Other dishes, yakisoba, teriyaki, doms are pretty tasteless. You can do better whipping them up in your own kitchen. On multiple visits we have found the staff less than friendly. The restaurant has recently changed... More

Having tried a different sushi restaurant in town and not having a great experience, we were a little hesitant to try this one. However, we quickly relaxed when we walked in and saw a beautiful interior and friendly staff. (The outside of the building is deceiving.) When I opened the menu, I knew this would be a better experience. It... More

I came in late and they were about to close. The owner and staff were kind enough to make me a Togo box. She also recommended a place close by to stay that was comfortable and affordable. The food was great so I came back for some more.

Thank James D
