Description: Designed to suggest a typical, small-town restaurant in Japan, Sakura is believed by many to be the best Japanese restaurant in Israel, with standards that outdistance anything available in the country, and it has held this status for more the 18 years.The menu varies according to the seasonal availability of fish for sushi, flown in almost daily from around the world. Keeping to these standards Sakura is a real pearl of Japanese Gourmet.The intimate space in Sakura (cherry blossom in Japanese) features a sushi bar of uncompromising quality, along with a menu of authentic Japanese dishes, based on traditional methods.Sakura enjoys the reputation as Israel's leading Japanese restaurant, and many food critics have selected it year after year as Israel's Best Japanese Restaurant.Sakura is located in Jerusalem in a historic (Feingold's Court), build around 1898, Jerusalem, a charming, picturesque alley between Jaffa Street and the Nahalat Shiva district, which housed the first cinema theater in Jerusalem.

This old standard has new owners, but it is still chugging along. It has the best sushi in Jerusalem and probably the freshest fish. However it is pricey. Some of the combos make a nice dinner. The portions are generous and the shrimp tempura is wonderful.

Hello All,
We really expected more from a restaurant that specialises in Sushi. Since our last visit seems that the place is at a stand still. Nothing has changed and its looks in a state that renovation is needed urgently. Dishes that we ordered were tasty more or less. Waiters were doing their best. Hope that things will pick up in the future.

This place used to be brilliant , fashionable and delicious some years ago. We would visit it every time we came to Jerusalem. Nowadays we reurned to it to find a ruin of a place we used to like. The restaurant is dirty there are stains everywhere and the furniture looks very tired and mouldy. We noticed the changes and lost the appetite. In fact if we hadn't ordered then we wouldn't have stayed.. Our food arrived and was nothing comared to what it used to be like. We didn' t finish our sushi and left never to come again.
