My family frequents this restaurant because it's easy to get a table. The food is good and the cooks do their best to show off for you. Check Living Social for a discount, too. I've often found one there.

I think this restaurant is more of a dinner place, but we tried it for lunch. Ordered teriyaki lunch bentos and got more food than we expected. Everything tasted great and fresh. A healthy alternative to burger and chicken places for your weekday lunch. (They aren't open for lunch on Saturday though, just evenings on Saturday.)

Have eaten at this restaurant 3 times and prefer it greatly to others like it in Greenville. A lot of the experience depends on your cook, and we have been fortunate to get engaging and fun chefs who cook right in front of us. The portions are very large and they do not overuse Soy sauce. Have taken both friends... More

I took my grandsons to Sakura for a fun evening. Entering the restaurant is the bar and tables. We had 7:15 reservations and were seated with several other people that were walk-ins. We ordered drinks. The beer came back warm which to me is not acceptable. Other drinks were fine. We all ordered salads with Ranch dressing. There was enough... More

To celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary, my wife and in-laws went to Sakura Japanese Steakhouse. We were glad we did. The wait staff was good, our hibachi chef was quite entertaining and the food was excellent! They were very good about taking special care for my wife in how they prepared our food being that she is allergic to shrimp.... More

Let me say up front: I don't eat sushi so I will not speak to it. I'm all about the hibachi. I used to look forward to hibachi on occasion before I found sakura, bit I always hated sitting at the big table with strangers and not being able to talk to my family while the whole show cooking thing...

A Friday night visit and yet we were able to beat the rush. Sat at the bar (not the sushi bar - but the two were adjacent to one another). We ordered hot tea, salad, appetizer & Sushi Lover For 2. We lived in Arizona for five years, Texas another five before arriving in upstate South Carolina a year ago.... More

Somewhat above average food with a large selection of traditional Sushi and Hibachi options. Fun for the kids to experience the Hibachi but not a top rate restaurant.

This is an above average Japanese restaurant in my opinion. Service was very good and the meal was delicious. I had the filet mignon / chicken combination hibachi. Both were good but the fillet was better - meat was perfectly cooked.and ortions were large. We sat in the dining room but if you want the meat cooked in front of... More

Great selection of rolls. Tasty and well portioned. Tried the avocado, the spicy crab and the Greenville. Easy parking. Nice decoration and spacious hibachi and non hibachi grill area Service was very friendly.
