We finally made it to Sakura's Sunday night and we were all happy that we did. We usually go to Noble in Southington for Hibachi. But Sakura is closer to home and I'm happy to say, I think the food is even better. The restaurant...More

Decided to last minute to go out for dinner, and found ourselves at Sakura’s Japanese restaurant. Fortunate we went when we did, around 5pm, as the restaurant filled up rather quickly. There was already a party atmosphere, as there was two birthday parties at the...More

I had a nice dinner here with my wife. The Unagi don was superb and the beef sukiyaki was delicious. I haven’t seen sukiyaki on a menu in awhile so I was very pleasantly surprised. The only disappointment was the tea which we didn’t enjoy....More

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.

Sakura has become quite the secret destination for Litchfield County foodies looking for consistent high-quality sushi and sashimi. Hidden away in a small strip mall near the Rt. 63 auto dealers, one would imagine an equally unimpressive offering. We have dined here on numerous occasions...More
