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.

Sushi bar was not up to the standard of competitors in the area nor was the taste of the buffet line food. Some was under cooked and did cause me mild digestive problems an hour after I left. Dessert bar was virtually empty and the ice cream was half melted. You were expected to clean the one scoop available in... More

Nothing too spectacular about this Chinese type restaurant. They offer the usual Chinese fare including Sushi and Mongolian type grill. Wait staff was attentive. We went around noon, the place was deserted and the room was freezing cold.

Ok. I know it's wierd to say we would return with a 3 rating but let me explain. The staff was extremely nice and attentive. There was a lot of seafood on the buffet which you don't always see. The one drawback though, and what dropped their rating, was the place was pretty empty of patrons so food sat on... More

The sushi bar has something for everyone. I do not usually eat Sushi but even I will eat some of the delightful concoctions that I will not even to pretend to know. My palate says they are good. There is a variety of other foods to choose from. From my experience has always been fresh and tasty,

I have been to this restaurant three times in the last month for lunch. Each time the buffet was fully stocked with very fresh food. The place is very clean and very professional looking. My only complaint was that it seems a little expensive. with water, lunch was well over $10.

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. About 20 mainly senior citizen types (like myself) went as a group to the Sakura... More

Food was great as well as treatment by the staff. Huey took time to remember my name and frequently called me by name during my first visit!

This place has very good food. Trays are always full, hot and a great variety and selection. The people are very nice. It is very clean and the price for the buffet is very good. I would suggest going here if you like Chinese. Do the buffet, well worth the money

Great variety of foods all very good. We went in mid afternoon and didn't expect them to have alot of different foods available that time of day and we were wrong. They had a wide variety of fantastic sushi, fantastic pork stuffed mushrooms, broccoli and beef along with many different typical Chinese foods
