a friend had suggested Sakura to me and my husband. she claimed the food was amazing and the yummy yummy sauce was better then our local favorite hibachi place.
we went for dinner on a Saturday and sat in the sushi dining room. We were seated right away but we waited for a while til someone took our drink order.finally someone same over- i ordered a sweet tea- first she brought water then she brought out unsweetened tea. we then waited a long time for our waitress to take our dinner order. she was very short with us and proceeded to have another conversation with another employee in a different language in the middle of our order. she walked away with out saying anything, good thing we finished our order before we were rudely interrupted.
we watched some of the sushi go by to other tables as we waited- not impressed.
we ordered the tuna tataki for an app which was decent but not worth the price for the amount of tuna. we ordered the hibachi dinner for two which was a good deal- steak,shimp, scallops and lobster plus all the extra rice and noodles and veggies soup and salad for 45$
the salad was over dressed and was very sweet. the soup tasted like sewage water- i didn't even finish mine it was so bad. then the main coarse came out. it was a decent amount of food. they left the dirty looking small lobster tail cut in half with no meat in it on top of the plate for garnish? i later found lobster shell particles in my food- i thought i broke a tooth when i bit it. the lobster was over cooked. the chicken was tiny, hard, over cooked pieces. the over all meal tasted more like Chinese take out then Japanese hibachi. there were a few things that tasted okay but over all it was not good, not worth the price and we wont go back based solely on the food quality. not to mention the waitress and her lack of people skills.
And to top it off the yummy yummy sauce was soo sweet it wasn't enjoyable. ew.
we will stick with our local favorite that knows how to make great food.
