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!

I was on my way through and called my order in. I was told 15-20 minute wait. 45 minutes later, I still don't have my order and cancelled my order due to the fact I had to get on the road I still had a...2 Hour Dr. in front of me. The only reason I gave it a three rating is because the lady a bladed with for my food said it was excellentMore
