Nice atmospehere, nice choice of food and very well presented. I've been here many times and each time the food has been very good, even when being in large groups. Definitely worth a visit :)

We visited this restaurant upon our arrival in Malta and fell in love with it, great Sushi at an affordable price. We enjoyed it so much we went back that week for lunch! Staff are friendly but service can be a little slow, worth a visit and located by the Preluna Hotel.

I was surprised to read some of the bad reviews, especially about the service. My wife and I stayed at the Preluna and had to try this Japanese cuisine restaurant. We aren't huge fans, but enjoy it every now and then. We were so impressed we came back a second evening for dinner, despite all the options available in Malta.... More

Sakura remains my favourite spot for sushi. The menu offers a good choice of Asian nibbles, it's main speciality being Japanese. Maki and sushi platters are delicious. Sadly the waiting time has remained this restaurant's Achilles heel. During our last visit, sushi starters were served around an hour after placing the order. Waiting staff and shift manager apologies profusely for... More

Have visited Sakura many times before, but never took me the time to share my experiences in Tripadvisor. The interior is rather plain but the food and service is first class. Staff is always helpful und friendly. This time i tried their octopus sallad in hot sauce. completely different from other octupus sallads as the octopus was in thin slices.... More

Let's start with the good; The food is really good standard and reasonably priced. The location is very good. The decor is okay, although perhaps a little dark. Now the bad; The service was really poor, we were on holiday and visited for an evening meal the day before we were due to go home. There was a young family... More

We had coffee, probably a poor choice, once we noticed that the door for the Japanese restaurant adjacent to the coffee shop led to the same restaurant. Mediocre coffee. bland pastries, and weak service.

Firstly, the food was excellent. The service was poor. Main meal was brought out while we were still eating our starters. Portion size was very good

Ate here once and also had a take away. We thought the staff and service was very good, competent and friendly. My wife ordered off menu: 'just fried noodles with teriyaki' and this was made with no fuss and was delicious. Her dumpling soup had too much pepper. Various Sushi rolls were fine. My noodle dish was very good.
