It's been a few years since we visited Sakura, but I'm pleased to see that nothing much has changed.The sushi and sashimi platter was excellent although I would much prefer if they didn't include crab stick.Surely a piece of mackerel can't be that much dearer? Oddly the soy sauce on the table tasted distinctly sweet, but this was swiftly remedied... More

The reason of why the sushi belt takeaway is a little bit more expensive compare to sit in because is under special offer for lunch time but it still cheaper than our takeaway menu pricing. Our policy is to ensure that sit in diner have the priority choices of sushi from the sushi belt. Customers may takeaway the sushi from... More

Took my good lady for a late supper, they initially appeared very disappointed when she mentioned she was a coeliac, curbed enthusiasm would be an understatement ! I had chicken Teriyaki which was tasty, the chicken was a tad over processed and my wife had the only dish available that was GF, she like me, felt her dishy was tasty... More

I went here with my family for my husband's birthday. I ordered the crab in tempura, and let me say I was very impressed. With all the dishes the presentation is amazing, and personally the menu is lovely. There is also a belt filled with different types of sushi and deserts which is very nice. Though my only problem with... More

We had a meal for two and ordered a sushi platter, mixed rolls, edamame (amazing), my wife ordered the steak in teriyaki sauce (although she did ask for a knife and fork we sort off expected...

Sakura may be some people's idea of a typical Japanese restaurant as it features a long counter with small plates circulating that you can pick, if you fancy or are in a hurry, especially at lunchtimes. But it also features a full menu with some choices I'd not seen before (I had to ask a neighbouring diner what he had... More

The service was good. We had the mixed tempura for £8.50 as one of our dishes. The batter was very heavy, not light and crispy as it should be. One of the pieces was a whole half of a red pepper, just too large of a piece. The entire piece of crab stick (processed seafood) on the sushi rice, looked... More
