We tried two makis with crab and salmon and the gyozas were lovely! Our dessert was a fried ice cream, simply very good! The decoration is totally japanese. Lovely!

Lovely meal, great service and a fun teppanyaki experience with Diego. The place is quiet and beautifully decorated. They save parking spots at the Wyndham lot for Sakura customers.
