Great service, excellent sushi - this was our first time to Sakura and we were very impressed. A lot nicer on the inside than outside. Our new favorite sushi restaurant in Hattiesburg!

Sakura was the first sushi restaurant in Hattiesburg. There have been many that have opened since but honestly, in my opinion, no other has surpassed it. Best Baked Salmon Roll and also the Hawaii Roll. Great sushi!

We went to Sakura based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We may have caught them on a bad night, but we found their tuna sashima to not be the greatest quality. It just tasted so-so. Not bad from a freshness standpoint, but just not...More

A great place to enjoy sushi, rolls & steaks. That's right their rib eye & New York strip(my favorite) come to the table sizzling in hot cast iron plate. If you like your steak medium, then order it medium rare. The steam vegetables and rice...More
