We also had some sushi to start - the crispy / spicy one was absolutely amazing.

The Teppanyaki was great, the food was delicious and to top it off Bryan who works in Sakura knew it was our wedding soon and organised a surprise cake for us which we ate while wearing Kimonos! You wont find that kind of kindness and thoughtfulness anywhere else in Dubai. It was a great visit and highly recommend. Thanks again... More

Really I love it. Fresh taste. Sashimi melts in your mouth and the Cherry Blossom Maki was very a pleasant surprise. Can't complain about the service , the small team including the manager was genuinely attentive. Could do better on the decor but it will not deter me from coming back soon!
