Today, Sunday my wife and I decided to give Sakura a try. Exceeded expectations. We have never had Hibachi style, so gave it a whirl. WOW. We had the Nija combo for two and couldn't even come close to finishing it. We are now fans...of hibachi. Service was top notch. Our chef was entertaining and cooked everything perfectly. We will go back many times so we can sample everything. The restaurant was very clean and friendly atmosphere. Sakura checked all the boxes.More

We had purchased a Groupon and visited because of that. I thought it was only Sushi from the Groupon but was pleased to find out it also had a Hibachi Grill. We ordered the Ninja Combo for two and the fried rice was ok, needed...more flavor and butter. The Filet was cooked to perfection, a perfect medium rare! He went on to overcook the chicken and lobster. Shrimp was good and veges needed a little more flavor. Our chef was not very entertaining and I had to look for chopsticks to enjoy our food. The other chefs looked like they were much more entertaining but ours relied on a cell phone and blue tooth speaker to entertain. If you like Saki, do not order as they will spray it in your mouth while they cook. Price was decent and worth the Groupon.More

We come here when we don’t want to take the time to drive further west into Omaha. Sometimes i don’t want traffic, loud music, and parking nightmares. So Sakura is a good alternative, but the food is “B” grade. We always have sushi and not...hibachi, so we lack the full experience. Very nice staff, and despite other reviews, we have never experienced timeliness issues. Good people!More

My wife wanted to eat at a hibachi restaurant for her birthday and this was the nearest one at the time. We were not disappointed, the food was good and the cook was very entertaining. We would eat here again. They also had good lunch...specials.More

Went with a group, so I was able to sample a variety of foods. Everything was great. I am not a sushi person, but I can say that the rolls that were brought to our table were presented beautifully. The menu was surprisingly large, even...your pickiest of eaters could find something they would enjoy. Can’t wait to return.More

The wait was definitely worth it. Two sushi rolls that we ordered were both outstanding. Fortunately, they put us in a booth which was comfortable. The wait was definitely longer than a normal restaurant but perhaps they made the sushi while we were there and...it was a busy night. So if you’re not in a hurry, you will not find sushi in Council Bluffs any better than this. We found it humorous that they had each sushi dish uniquely numbered on the menu but when we ordered by number we ended up having to open the menu to show the corresponding item.More

I was invited to a birthday party at Sakura and I’m not going to lie, I was a little leery because I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself in to but boy am I glad I went. I had the chicken hibachi (I do...not eat seafood) and it was delicious. To start out they bring you a little salad with ginger dressing that was ok, then some sort of broth/soup that was REALLy good. Then fried rice, chicken and vegetables. I ate every last bite. The aptly names yum yum sauce is a must. I would definitely eat there again.More

I ordered takeout from here on a Friday evening. They were very busy when I arrived at about 7:30 and I had to wait a bit for them to ring up my order. It was worth the wait, though! I had a really hard time...narrowing down all of the menu choices, but settled on two: the Mango Lobster Roll and Chicken Udon Noodle Soup. They were both fabulous. Large portions, so I had leftovers for days!More

Neat place in what I assume a former Applebee's, judging by the decor. Haven't tried the sushi, but the hibachi style steak, chicken, and shrimp with fried rice is delicious! Every time I've been there the steak melts in your mouth!

Went to this little place last week as we had purchased a Groupon to try it out. It is a little hard to find as it is around the corner on the side of Hobby Lobby. We went for a Sunday lunch, and although my...daughter is not really a sushi eater she likes certain types such as that containing crab or tempura shrimp and California roll. Our certificate was for $45 so we ordered a few different types to try including a tuna roll. When the serving plate was brought to us, the folks across the aisle with us were so impressed they wanted to order similar (see the photo!). On our first go around (what's in the photo) our total came to $35 and the waiter suggested we order more and he would box it up for us, which we did. The sushi was pretty amazing and so fresh, my daughter tried all of them and even liked the tuna roll. We did not try the hibachi but certainly will next time. The sushi we took home was really packaged nicely and daughter enjoyed all of it the next day. The service was excellent (it was hot and we were sticking to water to drink, and our glasses never went empty), I had called ahead to see if there was a special "sushi happy hour" as some Omaha places have, where the sushi is half-price or there is a special low-priced menu. This place doesn't have that but believe me, with their more than reasonable prices, you won't need to wait for some happy hour to enjoy great sushi!More

I do not eat fish at all and this place is amazing. I had the chicken hibachi and my husband had the shrimp hibachi. Fun "show" and the food was amazing. I even got a vegetable sushi roll. Excellent. Staff is very attentive. Service excellent!

Seems like the quality, value and service have gone down a bit. We go here fairly regularly and order their sashimi assortment. The last couple of times, it appears that we quality and quantity has slipped. Also, the service wasn't as good. There were six...of us and four got their meals before the other two and were done before the last two meals arrived.More
