The service was good but the taste of food was excellent. My kids and I went to celebrate my birthday. The cook made my day! He did his fire tricks that I still enjoy after so many year. If you like fish, I recommend the sea food combination.

This place has become quite full of themselves, with customer service dwindling lately, and this last attempt at dining here was the last straw. We tried to call ahead, but the phone rang without being answered. When we arrived, the parking lot was empty except for a handful of cars. Inside, no one was waiting to be seated. We walked...

This was a great place to celebrate a friends birthday. Some of us ordered from the menu while others had teppanyaki. It was nice that the restaurant allowed that. Entertaining and good food

Ever since I introduced this place to my husband, he loves it so much that we go once a month. He enjoys the atmosphere, waiters always are so helpful in offering suggestions with the different types of sushi that are available.

My Staff took me to this restaurant for lunch to celebrate Boss' Day. As is the usual norm for Tepanyaki style restaurants - all of your party has to arrive before they seat you down which is OK, except when you still have to wait 15 minutes for the chef. However, the food was excellent! I especially liked the Salad... More

We love Sakura for dinner. Great teppanyaki, but we love to stop in for appetizers and drinks! The bartenders are friendly and you can get anything off the menu. We love the shrimp and veggie tempura. It's a quick stop to get our favorites when we don't have time for dinner.

This is one of our kids' favorite places to eat. Most of the teppan chefs don't do the fun stuff anymore, but there are a couple who will play with your food and interact with the table. The food is good across the board. Definitely: try the hot and spicy sauce. It's addictive! Also: phone ahead for reservations. They are... More

Our favorite for Japanese food. When we're in the Fresno area and in the mood for Japanese food this is the place ! We enjoy the lunch bento meal...usually with beef or chicken teriyaki...always good...shrimp and vegetable tempura prepared perfectly...and of course, their rice with a side of their spicy sweet sauce...it is excellent. Sushi is also excellent...great service...we try... More
