I am sorry to have chosen to dine at Sakura tonight. Ny sushi crush got the best of me. The appearance is weak at best (even for a college town), and they are BYOB (fortunately the liquor store is 1 1/2 blocks away). I ordered...More

Bad service. This used to be our regular sushi place no questions asked but we are in search of another restaurant. A couple of the waitresses there are not happy people and seems as though the customer is a bother. We have had a couple...More
