Have eaten here previously and always enjoyed the experience. Over the last two months we have ordered take away here many times and the service is very reliable. Our order is always ready in 15 to 20 min. Food is good quality, well prepared and excellent value. We particularly like the prawn gyoza ($7.90), beef potato ($10.50) and chicken teriyaki don ($11.50) as a great value enjoyable feed for two at home! Recommended.

We were a group of 8 who are Japanese food lovers. Although the place is nicely located and close to home, but unfortunately, this will not be our future favourite restaurant. While the fried chicken pieces and the sake accompanied are good in blending, but the less than fresh sashimi failed to impress. Too polite to complain but before returning home, we had decided to take away some sashimi from a nice grocer, called Leo's, a block away, and they turn out in the evening table to be fresher, and cheaper!

We eat here all the time - about twice a month. Great food and pretty authentic compared to other local offerings. Casual dining though and great with the kids, can be busy and a bit noisy and the casual staff can be a bit slow. Sushi and sashimi is cut and made fresh, and lots of great dishes to share. BYO wine makes for a cheap night and there is Sapporo on tap.

We normally come to Sakura once or twice each month for the past few years. as always this place offers great Japanese food with a smile. when the restaurant is really busy we might wait for a few extra minutes for our turn to be served but it never stopped us from returning. the food is tasty and fresh and affordable.

I went to this restaurant a year ago while visiting friends who live in the area. The food was so good that I wanted to go back for dinner again and it enjoyed it just as much this time. The place is quite small but was packed, the sushi was very fresh and reminded me of the sushi I ate when I lived in Japan. I also love that you can get authentic Japanese dishes such as tako yaki (octopus balls) and okonomiyaki (savory pancake) and of course Japanese beer and saki. The staff are always welcoming and the food is great value for money.
