Worst meal we've had in Vietnam. Overpriced, over cooked & the staff all seemed to rather be somewhere else, just as we did !!! The view from upstairs was lovely, only good thing about Sakura.

We tried this place after reading good reviews and found it to be just another vietnamese restaurant, definitely not as good/special as Morning Glory or Mango Rooms. Its well located next to the japanses bridge and the heart of the old town and has great views (if you seat in the terrace upstairs). Other than this, nothing special.

Had lunch at Sakura and it was a completely disappointing experience. The staff were morose and obviously didn't enjoy their work and the food was overpriced and overlooked . Not a pleasant experience. We were the only ones in the restaurant ....I wonder why?

The food was bland and and none of the six in our family was satisfied with the meal. The worst was the spring rolls served in a basket. When we lifted the basket there was about twenty small ants running around in the plate. We were compensated by a plate of four water melon slices. The place looks inviting with the balcony but stay away from the food.

First, we tried to go to Sakura the night before, and we were spit a fully booked pretty impolite.

The experience the day after was terrible. We ordered a juice, and although fresh juice is the standard in the region, they brought a pink liquid which was obviously not fresh. They offered to replace for mango juice, which was fresh but smaller than the standard.

Then we ordered bread, just plain bread. They brought deep fried bread instead. When explaining again we preferred plain bread, they said the only bread left they had was on our table, so one of us had to go somewhere else to buy some. They served one of the mains while she was away, although we had explained we'd share a salad first. It was shrimps ravioli, which were good.

Then the salad came, nothing complicated. And then, the fish fillet with mango sauce. It was so hard it was tough to cut with a knife. The main reason we know for such hard fish is it being frozen, which was the case. They offered to replace it, but at that stage we just wanted to exit the place. After some discussion with the manager, they didn't charge the fish, but charged the bread.

Only good thing about this place is the location. We confussed it with somewhere else and that is the reason we went there.
