I LOVE this sushi restaurant. They have amazing rolls (lemon topper is our favorite) and a train! The train allows you to try all sorts of different things and figure out what you like before you commit. The hibachi in the back is great too. Great chefs and great prices!

The sushi train starts at 5:30 at night. It is definitely worth it. Lots of different options for low-cost. They also have a great special for their Japanese steakhouse that is buy one get one free on their dinners.

Train comes around with several options of sushi and sashimi. You also have the option to individually order any specific roll from the menu. Overall great, quick and affordable sushi fix.

Sakura provides the freshest sushi with a beautiful presentation. I love the lunch train! There's such a great variety of offerings and it's all made fresh right in front of you! The staff is very attentive and does a great job. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 is because it would be nice if they could figure... More

We have been here before for the sushi train which is lots of fun but we tried the hibachi tonight for our son's birthday. It was delicious. The service was attentive. The bonus: dinner time is buy one get one free in the hibachi steakhouse!

The sushi train is very good. It gets pretty busy though, so be there by noon! A nice variety of sushi rolls with so much flavor, you will come back for more. Whenever I get a craving for sushi, this is my go to place.

We loved the variety and the fun of the train bringing around the plates if sushi. Plates are $2.30 and $2.80 (I think). You can also order off the menu, which we ordered soft shell crabs. We loved it, and definitely plan to go back!!

I really want to like this restaurant. It is attractive and the food sounds so good when I read the menu, but the food just doesn't hit me well.
