“A Great Place for Sushi”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I am very particular about my sushi and this place is very fresh and very good. The sushi chefs are very talented and enjoy their craft. This family operated restaurant is very service oriented.
The Hibachi side of the restaurant is just as good. Watching someone enjoy their occupation makes the meal enjoyable because they work to make it so.
I travel all the time visiting sushi restaurants around the country. Sakura ranks up in the top 5% that I have been to.

“Dependable for good fresh sushi”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Sakura has become my go-to place for good sushi. It's fresh and there is a nice variety of special rolls. Their avocado salad is amazing. The wine list is ok but there is a fully stocked bar. The staff is friendly and service is on point.

Don't be put off by it's location (in a small plaza), it's definitely worth a try. As an FYI, there are hibachi tables and the place is on the smaller side so on weekend evenings it can get a bit rowdy and there can be hibachi smoke in the air at times. I don't mind it as the food is great.

“Yummy sushi, great service!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Sakura is one of the few restaurants in the area my husband and I visit for dinner. Service is typically pretty quick and friendly, even on very busy nights. Their sushi is delicious, fresh and abundant. The dinner combo boxes are a great value considering the variety and volume of food you get. I also love their hibachi. The quality of food is excellent and prices are reasonable for dinner. My only complaint is that your clothes will smell like oil when you visit, whether or not you sit near the hibachi grills.

“Fresh sushi!!!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

The sushi is fresh and the fish is plentiful in the specially rolls...we don't eat at the habachi tables but they always have a crowd the habachi chefs are friendly and entertaining... One if the better sushi places in the greater Waterbury area.. You are always promptly greeted as you walk in and usually thanked on your way out ...

If you are looking for budget sushi this is not the place for you !!!! But when ordering raw fish quality is important over price and I think the quality of the fish here is very good!!!!
