Good place for. I've had their sushi and some main courses. All are worth the price and then some. Decent wine as well.

Sushi restaurants have recently become very popular. Tried many. This one stands out as the best. Very small, friendly staff, fresh ingredients with a large menu. Something for everyone, even those that don't enjoy sushi. Good specials on specialty rolls and drinks throughout the week. Our granddaughter even wanted to go there for her birthday when she turned 4! Highly... More

After an exciting day downtown Des Moines, we went to celebrate our anniversary at Sakura Sushi. We both love sushi. This place did not disappoint. We had the yellowtail jalapeño appetizer, the Sakura roll, and lady lobster. All three dishes made you close your eyes and go umm umm good. Absolute must visit if you like sushi!

This little gem is amazing! The sushi is the best in the Des Moines metro. The service and staff are fast, fun, and friendly as well. All of their rolls are great but I highly recommend the "Hot Lover Roll" and "Happy Five". Even if they are not on the menu, just ask for them.

Small restaurant located in a strip mall. Overflowing with patrons on Wednesday evenings for the $9.99 specialty roll deals. Sushi was good...but it was a long wait. We had to sit at the bar to eat...would have preferred a table. Might try it again on a different night or go earlier to avoid the long wait and crowds.

My husband and I come here every so often when we are by Jordan creek and are in the mood for sushi. They do not disappoint. Sushi always tastes great. I love their sweet potato tempura sushi and their rainbow naruto. Size of your rolls will vary slightly on who is making them but presentation is always top notch. We... More

Excellent food and service. Unprepossessing strip mall store front, but great food. Third trip here and each meal has been beautifully presented and the sushi has been superb.

My husband loves sushi, i can't eat fish. I have taken him here, and he really likes it. Very good sushi for Iowa, very fresh tasting and lots of options. When we went they were understaffed, but the staff they did have was very good.

We live nearby, and go there often. It's a tiny place, so from the outside you wouldn't tell how great the food is. The staff is super friendly, and we felt welcome from the word go. By now, this is our second kitchen - the place we go when we don't feel like cooking. The prices at Sakura are quite... More
