My girlfriend and I had heard good things about the sushi here so we tried to get a seat. There were many open seats, however we were totally ignored for several minutes as we waited to be seated. We asked the waitresses if we could be seated and they just walked past us. Then two other customers came in after us and were immediately seated. Horribly rude service, we will never go back.

We ate there Saturday evening at 8:30 pm. We ordered two of the specialty rolls. The food was well presented and tasked OK, not great. I asked for ice tea afer I found out it was BYOB, it was never delivered. After we ate the sushi, the waitress brought the check. She never asked if we wanted dessert or anything. We asked for the Tempura ice cream. and she did bring some. It was not very good; the tempura coating was soggy.

There were a couple of large groups in the small dining room and they were very loud.

Sakura did NOT present a good dining experience

Me and my wife we've been there couple of times, both times we were able to get the tables where you sit on the floor for a more traditional japanese experience. The food is always delicious and the price is reasonable. My only issue is their service, some of their waiters barely speaks English so it's hard to understand them and if you make a question sometimes they don't understand you either. But other than that is a great little restaurant!

I've been there a couple of times. The first time was the best experience that me and my friends sat down on the floor in a typical Japanese dining atmosphere. The sushi was displayed so well and every dish was liked by us a lot!

In the past few years, I've eaten at many sushi restaurants all over the United States and this is consistently the one that has set the bar for me. It is hands down my favorite. Their sushi is incredibly fresh and fairly priced for the quality and creativity you receive (in fact, it's much less expensive than most places I've been). They have the best miso soup I've ever tasted. I usually order the spicy salmon roll and the Lost Control, which is absolutely incredible. They have loads of choices, including non-sushi options, and I love their food so much that I eat here several times a month.

Their dining room has also been recently renovated so it's quite nice inside now. The service has always been very quick for me. It's always almost empty during lunch time, so then it's even faster.

I highly, highly recommend this place and always am looking for an excuse to bring people to eat there with me. Even if I'm alone, I'll stop in for a bite to eat.
