We usually eat at the tables and have had consistently excellent food. There is a fried Tofu we get as an appetizer and even though I don't normally like tofu, you must try this one! The softshell crab is my husband's favorite. We haven't tried anything we did not like and food was always hot when it should be.

We are big fans of Benihana's yet sometimes that drive was a disadvantage. We saw Sakura's and decided to give it a try. We have not been disappointed yet. It is a little different than Benihana's but the food thus far has been very good and I find myself wanting to return (often). I recommend this highly. I realize no... More

This was a return trip for me. It was better than the last time. Quick lunch that was not too pricey and the food and service was great. I will be returning

Nice restaurant, we were seated immediately, waitress took our drink order quickly and we ordered sushi for our appetizer which was very tasty. We had steak and chicken and everything was very good. Staff was very attentive, kept our glasses filled and cleared empty dishes from the table. The only thing that was disappointing was we told our waitress our... More

Nothing special about the food. Overpriced and the manager is TERRIBLE!. What you get for the price of the food is not what you will expect. Got to a Hibachi table and had to wait more than 25 minutes so more people arrive to our table BEFORE the cook will even show up. Then they brought us sushi which we... More

Very nice restaurant with good food, good service, and excellent cooks. I got the teriyaki chicken and salmon. I recommend getting the salmon for sure! You can also order sushi here as well. Cooks put on a great show during your meal.

I visit Athens often, and every time I do, I have to come here. Best Hibachi I've ever had, even in Florida, I just can't get the flavor I'm looking for - good places but not like this. I've really only had the Hibachi, the soup is amazing, the salad dressing is a little sweet but that's how I like... More

We went here for Father's Day. We had 15 and all day at one Hibachi table. The cook was a blast to watch and really made the kids and adults laugh. The food was cooked just right and tasted very good. The only negative was one of our servers. She could barely understand us and we couldn't understand her. It... More
