We always get our sushi from Sakura. Price/quality is very good and the portions are (more than) sufficient! Usually top flavour, however on busy (and hot?) days the quality is so-so. Compared to other restaurants who sell sushi, this one is definitely a top contender.

We had a lovely dinner last night in Leuven. Great sushi and friendly service. We have sushi once a week and have been in lots of sushi restaurants around the world, however this rates among the best.

We have our Sushi restaurants in Leuven figured out: Sakura is the best value / best quality in town, especially the futo tempura is recommended!

Really great sushi place, together with the Samurai restaurant the best sushi restaurant I've been to in Leuven. Get the sushi-sashimi menu for 1 person, it offers a really good mix and is typically enough for two persons.

Eating sushi regularly in Leuven, and having tried several different places, this is the one that I keep coming back to. I'm mostly a fan of (what we in the west think of as) 'classic sushi', so without fried ingredients or very exotic combinations, and Sakura remains number one in Leuven for me. It greatly helps that it is not... More

This has been the sushi place of choice in Leuven for 7 years. Every now and then I will go somewhere else and end up disappointed. The atmosphere is what I expect from a Sushi place, simple but very nice. The service is always good and sushi better than any other place in Leuven. Also, good for takeaway as they... More

I took the vegetarian menu. I really liked it, it was very tasty, but it was also very boring. All the sushi had either egg or avocado in it, nothing else, nothing creative. Service was allright. It took a lot of time though. My friends told me their sushi was lovely and one of the best they had in Leuven.... More

Lots of choices of menu which is rare for a sushi place. But the sushi menus are not offering a wide variety of sushi. (a lot of Maki and californian rolls however). I would rather prefer a bit more conventional sushi choices Just for information: none of the staff speaks Japanese.

Eating inside is not an option... Good take away but closed on Sunday and don't expect the best sushi. Good quality but limited chose...

Long waiting (nearly 1 hour & other costumer even more), not real Japanese (don't take the gyoza... They are Chinese dumplings). But the Sushi itself was not bad after all.
