On a "college row" at Old Dominion University, I went into this restaurant with limited expectations, figuring it would just be a decent "college setting" offering for Sushi. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was superb, as well. We started with Edamame, which was just the right temperature and level of saltiness, and not too wet. The house salad had... More

In town for school and checked trip advisor for what was good and close. Sakura came back highly rated. Right next to ODU. I had the Alligator and Miami Sunset Rolls. Very good. $31 for both and a Coke.

Maybe it would have been better if I got the sushi. I got Hawaiian fried rice which is basically just the shrimp fried rice with pineapples. Hardly any crab and only one scallop. Also, ask for everything you need if you're getting this to-go (soy sauce, eating utensils, etc).

Sushi was fresh and had good variety. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sauces were tasty and spicy and added a punch to the sushi

I have eaten here twice. I suppose sushi is not my thing. That is not their fault. I had the sweet potato roll and avocado roll and tofu teriyaki. In the tofu teriyaki, the sauce and onions where good but the chunks of tofu were too large and I did not eat many of them. Both times after I ate... More

Visited one hour before closing. Warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The lobster roll was very good and all sushi was freshly made. Great service.

Went with two coworkers. Quick and friendly service woth excelent selection, good prices, and exceptional fish. Everything was fresh at just the right temp. Small selection of beer, wine, and sake, but large enough to pick a decent sake.
