Sushi lovers should be flocking to this place. The menu offers the usual Japanese fare but includes numerous items not seen in most other sushi restaurants. We indulged in some weekend specials such as smoked tuna, king salmon and young yellowtail, all of which were...More

I visited Sakura in October of this year with my family and I am happy to report quality and service remains high. This is an excellent restaurant in the Chicago area with a good selection and attentive staff. As always, I recommend reserving tatami room.

Chicago has a lot of great restaurants, but for Japanese I recommend this place which is about 20 minutes drive from O'Hare (I have been to Japan about 20 times, and have eaten at some excellent places, but this is my favorite anywhere). They have...More

OK, I've been eating in Sakura several times, as well as ordering for takeout. My Japanese friend says that it is more authentic than most of the sushi places in the suburbs. Yes, it lacks in atmosphere, service, and even presentation of the food, but...More
