So much fun sitting around the table watching the chefs make the meal and give a show! Very entertaining. Definitely worth it!

The chicken hibachi is yummy! My husband loves the New York roll. It is a lil pricey so we only eat here once in a while. I do wish you could order take out off lunch menu during evening hours.

Sakura is always really tasty and the portions are enormous. For dinner, we always opt for the Hibachi dinner, complete with flaming preparation and flying food- I recommend practicing before-hand so you don't embarrass yourself when a shrimp smacks you square in the face. For lunch I choose the Long Island roll. Its amazing and it wont break the bank.

We were out with another couple looking at a vehicle for sell, decided to eat, looked up TripAdvisor & chose this place. Clean, friendly staff, food was good, hot & plentiful. We sat at a table & ordered off the menus. We got chicken, shrimp, sushi, plus sides, soups, salad. No complaints at ALL! I would stop again .

Little old and outdated atmosphere. Server was very prompt and efficient. Greeted and seated quickly. The food was cooked at our grill by an entertaining cook. Food was good. It is a little pricey but it was fun time.

I reviewed Sakura a few years ago and gave it 5 circles. However, after 3 recent visits, I feel like I need to update my review to express the current lack of management that is causing the quality to run down. During a recent visit, the temperature of the restaurant was very cold. We complained along with the rest of... More

The cook was excellent, highly skilled, and did a nice job preparing the food. The steak was tender and the shrimp average in size but you get several. One minor complaint, the cook tossed Broccoli towards the diners own mouths to catch, too cheap for shrimp? Who wants to catch broccoli?

The food is usually decent but the servings seem to have got smaller. The server wasn't very friendly and the cook wasn't very talented in doing all the tricks and entertainment as one expects at a Japanese restaurant.

The service people are raw and not well trained. The flashy knife display was average and predictable. The prices are high. Most of the offerings do not seem fresh, but the sushi was acceptable. We'll look elsewhere in the future.
