First, the sushi is actually not bad: totally acceptable, if that's what you wish to eat. But it's not a Japanese restaurant. It lacks the finesse and care that distinguish true Japanese cuisine from the imitations. Still, in Memphis, this might be the best you...More

The sushi is amazing, but beware there are small sushi rolls and huge ones to share that the menu doesn’t make very clear. My server did not bother to point that out even though I told him it was my first visit. He never bothered...More

Nice to be able to get some yummi udon to go on those cold rainy days. Even better when ill or not feeling well. Comfort food that reminds me of what my mom used to make! Otherwise, dining in is lacking atmosphere and there are...More

My husband and I always enjoy dining at Sakura. Our favorites are the Joyce, the Jungle and the Garland. We request the Jungle with very little jalapeno. It's VERY spicy, if we don't. My husband can handle it, but I can't. We've recently started eating...More

This place never disappoints! The fish was so fresh and delicious. We had age dashi tofu, mermaid salad, tornado roll- no eel, Phoenix roll, and Godzilla-no broccoli. Everything tasted fabulous. The only slight disappointment was the mermaid salad, it was mostly cucumber and not a...More

Good food; I like the shushi (very tasty), and the choice of teriyaki entrees, which actually are full dinners with soup salad, meat or fish, rice veggies and fruit. Service is nice and not too long.

This quickly became our favorite spot to check into. The dining experience is perhaps among the best you will find in the city. The hosts/hostesses are always friendly and prompt. The waitstaff is always on it, even when it is particularly busy. The warm towels...More

Sakura has excellent sush and a great staff. They serve large portions and always fresh. The triple combo at lunch is a great value. Sushi, Sashimi and rolls.

The sushi was very good and had a very fresh taste and smell. Selection was good and the wait staff helpful. Cost was reasonable and the amounts of sushi on the rolls plentiful. Location was a bit difficult to find at first.

Sushi is very good and portions are ample. The wait staff (at least on this visit) seemed distracted as they forgot one order and then switched waiters mid meal. The parking is a bit tight. The quality of the food makes this a good place.
