There are two Sakura sushi restaurants on Kirkwood Highway. Both have Wilmington addresses but this one is actually in Elsmere. Any reviews mentioning all-you-can-eat are referring to the wrong restaurant. The all-you-can-eat Sakura is at the intersection of Kirkwood Highway and Limestone Road. This restaurant...More

Stopped in for a early dinner about 4:00 for a Friday afternoon. There was only one other couple in the place. The decor is modern and a bit flashy. They feature a sushi all "you can eat" for $30, which was more than I wanted...More

We went off-hours to get a better idea of this place. We ordered from the "all You Can Eat" menu, and were pleasantly surprised to find everything prepared well and timely.

I've been to many sushi places in DE and travel the extra distance when wanting superior sushi. Small and gets busy in the evening.

So this may be a hole-in-the-wall type place, but don't let that deter you. The food is Ah-maxing!! I have my go-to sushi place further down Kirkwood, but I wanted to try something new, but it also had to have "real" food as 2 people...More
