Still the best sushi in town. And the most kind, caring people that work there. I’ve been ordering takeout during the pandemic. They remember my little girl every time and always include without asking pieces of candy just for her from when we would eat...there in person pre-pandemic. The tuna tartar and red snapper are always exceptional and so are the sushi rolled (kiss of fire, Godzilla, spicy scallop, Newburgh roll). Orders are always ready on time for take out and always served with a smile. You pull up to their takeout window and never have to leave your car. Thank you so much Sakura. You are the best.More

Best sushi in town. Best sushi in Evansville. Best customer service. I’d recommend (in ranking order from favorite to really good) the tuna tartar, sashimi red snapper, Godzilla roll, mango roll, spicy tuna roll, hibachi chicken for the kiddos with fries. The special rolls they...put up on their board are also great. Place right down the road will be out of business once Sakura really gets off their feet. Their servers and waitresses and master chef want you to be there a fans want you to come back.More

Been here 6 times now... ordered carry out once also. Hands down the best sushi in Evansville and Newburgh. If you haven’t had the tuna tartar you are missing out. Also the Godzilla roll is very similar to a roll I get in Indy at...one of the best sushi restaurants and it’s awesome. Also the mango roll is great!!! The red snapper sashimi is as if you are in key west. Hot green tea is good. Hibachi meals are good. There’s absolutely no way the other restaurants compare..... we’ve been trying to go to all of them at least on east side and in Newburgh and this one is just the best!!!! And their servers and waitresses are so over the top on customer satisfaction. They WANT you to want to come back.... there is another sushi establishment very close to this one that has zero customer service... (see my review) ... so give them a try.More

I expected this restaurant to be really impressive. We generally go to Ninki or Ropongi if we are in the mood for sushi and Japanese food. We instead chose to go to Sakura because the reviews were so positive. The food was just okay. The...service was good, but the food was nothing amazing. We won't return just because there are other places that really wow us and this was not one. I don't have a negative view of this restaurant, but it just did not hold up to the overwhelmingly positive reviews.More

We recently moved to Newburgh and were looking for some good Chinese/Japanese food without having to go into Evansville. Sakura blew us away. We ordered take out but the food was ready when they said it would be. It was a simple process of getting...and paying for our order. We did not order sushi but we did order Sesame Chicken, egg rolls, crab rangoon, and Sweet and Sour Chicken. Our favorite dish was the sweet and sour chicken, we ordered a side order and it was a very good portion. The crab rangoon was also delicious. We decided next time we'd like to dine in, but our takeout experience was very good. I highly recommend.More

We love Sakura. The staff is friendly snd remembers our drink orders every time we visit. Sushi is not only beautifully prepared, but always tastes excellent.

We've dined here a couple of times and were pleasantly surprised that the food is really delicious. My son has ordered several different sushi combos which were beautifully plated and her fresh. I have ordered the chicken and shrimp hibatchi grill, this entree came with...a green salad and dressing, soup (not my favorite and the taste resembled dish water, not much flavor) bit the entree very good made to order fresh grilled vegetables, rice and meat. Our party also ordered the moon goo gai pan which came with rice and a salad very Delicious! We will return just won't order the soup.More

A very nice sushi restaurant with beautiful presentations! If you are hungry and with a friend, order the sushi boat and you may have enough left over to take home. It takes the guessing away with a wide selection offerings or you can order in...singles. The beer special during the week is only a dollar! Great service!More
