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

I have been trying to find somewhere good for sushi in Belfast after moving back from London and I think we have found it. 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

As a line traveller it was perfect, I just sat at the sushi bar and felt right at home but it... More

The food here is great and feels so healthy. I love the seafood hot and sour soup and the octopus sushi. The Sakura non alcoholic cocktail feels so good for you. Great for a recharge. I've read some reviews about the service staff not being good. In truth it depends who you get. I think this place could benefit from... More

This restaurant never fails to please, it has a good menu and a sushi train we tend to eat from both in the one visit. The staff are very courteous, helpful (they will explain dishes no problem) and try hard with kids. As my 7 year old DD now eats most dishes and is willing to try others she does... More
