The best Japanese restaurant anywhere. Love the Miso soup and steak is excellent. Sushi/rolls dishes are incredible! Can get busy on weekends, but worth the wait. Hibachi is the best anywhere! Great service, staff very attentive.

We've been making the rounds of the Hibachi/Sushi restaurants in the greater Waterbury area and Sakura was the last on our list. Tucked into a small strip mall next to a Lebanese restaurant and liquor store. Inside it has two sections, one for Hibachi and...More
