I ate at this restaurant recently with my teenage son, who loves that the food is prepared in front of him. The Hibachi chefs put on an entertaining show for younger patrons. The food quality is average with no special dishes compared to other Hibachi restaurants in the area. The presentation of the food was fine with my son having... More

What a wonderful experience and exceptional value. The quality of of the lunch and the gracious service make me wonder why we have not gone to Sakura more regularly. I like the traditional design that winds through many rooms, over bridges, Unfortunately it leads to a space that unceremoniously overlooks the Post Road.

This is one of our main birthday dinner destinations. It is expensive ($21-$35 for a hibachi dinner (includes delicious soup and tasty side salad). With tip, it usually costs us about $40-$50/per person. The showmanship of the hibachi cook used to be much more enthusiastic and impressive. It felt like our cook was just going through the motions. The food... More

This is my favorite restaurant! My boyfriend and I have been coming here for about 8 years. They consistently deliver high quality food and service. In all that time, we have always had a great experience here! We ordered the tatsuta age appetizer and both got the hibachi filet mignon dinner. Somehow it was even tastier than last time! I...

Honestly I liked it better in the 70's when it was a steakhouse. The Big Top was across the street where McD's is.
