I have been to Sakoura many times throughout the last 10 years. The quality has been deteriorating by the year. I feel that the management got the impression that they are the only Japanese Resturant in Kuwait, at the same time, the prices have been increasing and discounts for happy hour has been going down. The last time I have been in the resturant, the avocado in the was unripe. the waitress told us this is what they could find in the market! I switched to other Japanese restaurants in Kuwait. I see better value and better quality of food.

If you really know and like japanese food, think twice. the decor and atmosphere are nice. The staff very nice and efficient and they make an effort to make you feel good. The only problem is there is not one single japanese working there and the fish quality - the very key point at a japanese restaurant - is not Top as it needs to be, but just so and so. It looks japanese but it does not taste japanese.

The restaurant, located in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, has very good sushi. There is a very complete a la carte menu, as well as some special combinations. Very good service as well.

Like much of the establishments in the 360 Mall, the product is pricey but of good quality. The wait staff greet you with the traditional Japanese saying of "irasshaimase" but don't know of much Japanese beyond that. The sushi and katsu are presented nicely, prepared expertly and taste delicious. The meats are cooked well and the sauces are very tasty. The favorite for me and I could eat it as a meal itself was the fried rice dishes, it reminded me of how Mom makes fried rice.

The seating area is very open which is not ideal if you're looking for some semblance of privacy. If you're a people watcher though, there's plenty of seating for you to observe people passing by. The decor is okay and the wait staff is very attentive and pleasant. I would definitely eat there again.
