The wife and I come here all the time and enjoy the sushi and hibachi. NOT the restaurant we go to for service. Staff is always very busy being run around. A good thing for the business, I guess, but not good for individual service expectations. Not something to prevent us from coming though!

The combination dinners are great for the price. I had the terryraki steak with soup and a lettuce salad with ranch dressing. Dont expect a gourmet dinner for thr price. The bathrooms could use some cleaning.

I love Sakura. The service is quick and the food is fresh and delicious. I feel like it is a good value and I've never been disappointed with the food or the service. See you again soon

We knew the quality of food probably so so when we checked out the menu, entrees were inexpensive (for a Japanese restaurant). We tried different bento boxes which came with miso soup and salad. The miso soup was like clear broth with a few small pieces of scallions and mushrooms not really miso soup. Salads were soaked with ginger dressing... More

Sakura runs the gamut from simple sushi and sashimi through fried rice and tempura and on through special sushi rolls, hibachi entrees and combination plates. If you want a combination not listed on the menu, don't hesitate to ask. The service is quick and careful (you may have to be a little patient trying to understand servers who don't speak... More

Tonight we took our Indiana teenage food critics for their very first visit to Sakura. They left unimpressed and wanting to know why I wasted my money. The food concept is wonderful but a person orders a entree for it to be tasty and fulfilling. Perhaps better cooks with a certain degree of food knowledge is needed in the kitchen.

Staff was inattentive. Floor was dirty. I didn't touch my food. It looked okay, but the server dropped the utensils on the floor and didn't replace them. I can only imagine what happens in the kitchen.

This restaurant has a very interesting menu with many many choices. The food is excellent and you almost get too much to eat for such a very small price. But think twice before using the rest room. Floors were a bit sticky, too.
