We go to Sakura a couple of times a month. The owners are really nice people. My husband likes the variety at the sushi bar. They offer a lot of different dishes at the buffet, including some fresh fruit. We always enjoy our meals there.

First a disclaimer: I am no fan of buffets and usually avoid them, especially the all you can eat variety. On my own, I would likely never have darkened their doors, but then I was gently arm-twisted by our friends at our summer retirement community....More
