Sakura is a pioneer in introducing Japanese cuisine in Kuwait for more than 20 years. Sakura is the Japanese term for flowering cherry trees that produce beautiful cherry blossoms for a short time each spring. I have not been dining here for over 10 years and I am back now for an authentic Japanese experience. The staff at 360 mall... More

We came here as a family twice, and in both visits, the food have always been consistently excellent in terms of taste, even the presentation of food is superb. Highly recommedable is the crunchy maki, never fails. This restaurant is one of the restaurants you can really recommend. Service is good too, however, in one occassion, we were made to... More

This is the first time I have ever visited Sakura. And I definitely was not disappointed. The Salmon Crab Avocado Salad is the best I have ever tried. Their Rolls were amazing. The Beef Tepenyaki is cooked perfectly. And to top it off, the desserts were to die for. This is a place where I would not hesitate in recommending... More

I've been a lover of Japanese food at an early age when we traveled to Singapore. Perhaps, it was the thought of the revolving conveyor belt with different sushi and sashimi to choose from or simply just the unique way of presenting its taste to your palate. Ever since, I've been intrigued on discovering different varieties of the Japanese cuisine.... More

Sakura is located a little way inside the 360 mall, tucked into a small avenue of eateries. The place looks small but functional though that shouldn't stop you from investigation as the food is quite delicious. My wife and I were shown to a very nice table in the middle of the open dining area and offered an iPad which... More

Don't miss out the Saturday buffet. Great value for many. U can eat as much as u like for a reasonable not cheap cost. The tepanyaki is yummy and the freshly fried tempura. The exciting thing about the buffet is that the dessert are international and to die for.

Salad was good, edamame was too hot & moist. I did think the sushi was too heavy (oil-rice ratio). The juice selection was lovely- enjoyed Bora Bora. I must say that the service was superb; friendly & professional. I would come back just for the friendly service. Ambiance, we sat inside (it had less people & was quieter). Lights are... More

This was my first time eating at Sakura located at 360 Mall. Their food was amazing and I found it to be better than the quality of what is served at the Crowne Plaza location. Their food tasted fresh and delicious.
