This place is highly recommended for its sushi. There is a conveyer belt with numerous types of sushi. The price is reasonable during lunch time offer. Environment is well decorated and pleasant to sit in. Unfortunately you will not get a smile from the staff.

Impromptu visit - first time for two of the party of three. Great choices for all including vegetarians - good sized portions and totally relaxed atmosphere - no sense of being rushed on. Prices were mid ranged . Looking forward to going again.

The food was a little expensive but it was great. Just make sure to buy a parking ticket if you park on the same street since the ticket machine can be 100m away from your car. Recomend prawn tempura

Nestled in Belfast's bustling Botanic Avenue, Sakura Sushi restaurant brings a taste of Tokyo to the city streets of Northern Ireland. Named after Japan's national flower – the cherry blossom – this sweet and shiny sushi restaurant is split over two floors and filled with glazed walnut furniture, a feature floral wall, bright and bubbly background music and cute Japanese lanterns. On the ground floor you can sit at the sushi train and choose from a superb selection of fresh sushi and sashimi or meals such as the salt and chilli sea bass or the roasted pork with curry udon noodles, while upstairs offers a variety of flexible spaces with plush carpets and sliding doors that are perfect for private parties.
