“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Have been to 30-40 Teppanyaki places around the world, and this is the best!! Great tasting food, sushi was fresh, and great quantities. A little pricey, but they always are.

“Overly priced & bad service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Service was bad, food was not authentic Japanese and witnessed Teppan chef screaming at customers (this was a first for us).

We are greatly dismayed not only about the comments regarding the authenticity of our food and overall experience (as it is something we pride ourselves on) - but also the comment pertaining to the behavior of the teppan chef. Not only is this not typical, not to our standard, but is certainly unacceptable. We will be reaching out to you directly to find out more details to ensure we can correct the situation.

The menu was excellent and the Teppanyaki chef put of an impressive display while cooking our food. Had sushi to start with which was also very nice.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We had our first evening in the hotel and decided to try out this restaurant. The service was fantastic and the chef who cooked the food at our table was very entertaining and cooked the food really well. I would recommend this to anyone.

“Savoring Sakura”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

I had not been to a teppanyaki restaurant in a long time but we were staying at the Radisson in Flagstaff where it is located so we decided to check out Sakura and boy were we pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful and our chef's showmanship was awesome! Flavorful food with a flaming demonstration as we watched it being prepared. We did not expect to find such a good restaurant located in our hotel.
