Not fancy but excellent food and service. Must be a Japanese family owned restaurant. The chefs were Japanese as were the servers. The sushi was very fresh and beautifully presented. Will return again in the next week.

Hidden in a strip center, this is my favorite sushi restaurant in Northeast Ohio. Service is always good, and the sushi is consistently delicious. Prices are fair, as well.

This is the best sushi I've had in Akron. It's the most authentic style restaurant. The miso soup is also good. They have boxes where the chef will select different pieces of fish for you.

Nice atmosphere. Usually order for take out but decided to eat in tonight. Sat at the bar, chefs made sushi right in front of us. Banana tempura desert is worth trying. Sushi excellent as usual. Good tips on what to order from wait staff.

I travel and eat sushi all over the country in some of the finest restaurants. I still find myself comparing it to Sakura. Some of the finest rolls I've ever eaten.

Sakura was a pleasant surprise and we will be going again. It's a nice restaurant with pleasant decor. Our server was extremely attentive and great at her job. We started with an appetizer from the sushi bar. Jalapeños Puff was very fresh, which translates to...More
