Not the best or most special sushi in town but excellent value for money. A favorite of mine. A bit noisy, though.

Visited the place with friends in search of a nice sushi sashimi meal, recommended by many. Entered the relatively small restaurant, waited a while to be seated in spite of reservations made. Sushi prepared by asian natives, did not really look japanese. While waiting could observe a nice certificate from the brazilian community certifying this restaurant as best sushi place.... More

I love this place. I have been in Leuven for 7 years and this is the place I go. I have been to the rest and this place offers the best around. The fish is always fresh and the presentation is nice.

I went to Sakura for dinner with my husband. We didn't have a reservation, but the staff fit us in which was nice of them. We came here because my husband loves sushi, I myself am not a huge fan of Japanese food, but I really liked the food here. We had salmon and tuna sashimi to share, and then... More

Large variety of sushi with an open kitchen. They also have some other things like ramen and sides, which are also good. I've been there twice, the second time, although food and price were ok, the service was a bit weak.

Went here with a colleague on our first night in Leuven and just managed to get the last table. This is a really popular sushi spot and I can see why. Excellent food and reasonable prices. We ordered the sharing platter for two with miso soup which was about €55. Very impressed and friendly staff!

This place was well recommended on TripAdvisor, but this tells more about the people frequenting this place than about the quality of the food. We see a un-Japanese approach to adding salad and I ripe tomatoes to create volume, low quality ingredients and the talent to create the most inedible shrimp gyoza, served with a cheap Thai imitation sweet and...

Very good quality sushi and sashimi restaurant in Leuven, probably the best (according our experience). I visited the restaurant many times, always per dinner. Huge assortment, fresh products and great taste. The structure is quite basic, sober dressing, but the secret is the quality of the sushi. Also possible to take away. Highly recommended.

Thank Umberto E
