Very disorganized overall. But the food was above and beyond.

I have visited many tepan resturants across the world, and while this isn't the best, it is above par.

I would eat here again, though some prepared with a chip and pin card or cash.

We have been visiting teppanyaki restaurants all over the world, from Malaysia to Taiwan, Japan, Chile and Cuba. Sakura is not the best, but certainly not the worst teppanyaki restaurant. First impression: bad smell upon entering, sloppy service at the beginning and interior a litte worn around the edges. Last week was not the first time we visited Sakura, and every time it strikes us how much time it takes before clients can order their food and get their first drink and bites. Certainly if you come early. Don't. Staff will do everything to 'synchonize' you with the rest of the table. If you want it or not, the Kombi Riori will take almost three hours, depending on the other people in the room.
This said, we had a very enjoyable evening, and once 'syncronized', service went smoothly. The taste of the food has changed over the years, in my view too much adapted to our Western taste. I prefer the real Japanese tastes, but that's a personal thing.
In one word: amenable to improvement on some points, but certainly worth the money you spend here!

Went here, loved but really loved the food, sushi are fresh, show was good, service nice...
And for all the people above here who wrote it was expensive well they SHOULD STAY AT HOME... I appreciate when restaurants like these put effort in the quality and service and i am willing to pay for it and i don t think 40 till 50 euro per person is overpriced here !!! At least you have fine quality, the show and service with it! It s the price, we are living in 2012!!! everything has its price and those who dont want to spend that go to Mc donalds !!! Keep up the good work because this restaurant deserves it more than others !!! Thanks for the experience !!

Very good restaurant for Japanese traditional kitchen. Sushi nicely presented and fresh as it is supposed to be. We had one of the menu's which was balancing on the value for money. Choosing a menu à la carte would definitely be to expensive for the value.
The personal is very polite and reacts quickly, friendly on demands.
I think that there is some more work to do on the interior. This is another classical example of a restaurant where the kitchen over whelms the interior.
We both had a menu with some beers, but the bill was nicely a 100 Euro's. Without coffee or anything else. We had a very good meal but wondered if it was worth the money. Can a menu without wine or other expensive alcohol drinks ever live up to 100 euro's ?
