Have gone to Sakura many times. Used to be wonderful. Service and food, although pricey, was always good. Past 3 times, not been good at all. Last time we were there, I was on end of seating square when vegetables were cooked and passed out...to patrons at table. By the time chef got to me, only vegetable left was onions. The other vegetables had been given out to the others in our party ( 12 of us.) Asked for some vegetables and he said he did not have anymore. Asked him to get some and cook them for me since this was included in the price. Said he did not have anymore. I should not have had to ask for more to be cooked. If he was unable to figure out how much to give to the other diners and not leave anyone out, then he should have known enough to go and get more and cook them so everyone in the party had some. Were there celebrating daughter's birthday. She was excited to have chef cook shrimp on grill and toss into her mouth as they have always done. (Part of fun when going there.) She was sitting next to me at end of table when it came to try to toss cooked shrimp to her to catch, he ran out, saying he was out of shrimp. Let him know this is her bday and she talked a lot about having the shrimp tossed so she could "catch" it. Asked if he could take one from shrimp I ordered for entree as she was looking forward to this. Told us he could not. Shameful service. Left message to have manager call so could discuss this. No call back. Rice delicious. Don't think we will return.More

I'm not generally a huge hibachi fan, but really enjoyed this one. We went as a family of five and were seated alone. Our server was a little hard to hear under her mask. But she was attentive. I felt like you got a good...variety of choices with your meal. Our chef was entertaining, but not overly demanding of the spotlight. The food was flavorful, and obviously hot. Everyone left full and enjoyed our hour there.More

Anniversary weekend in Ocean City husband suggested hibachi. Found this place and gave it a try. Just like any place you go for hibachi sometimes you sit with a good group of people and sometimes not. Unfortunately this was not a good group, first off...the one family ordered except Dad who was running late, a half hour later we finally got started. Our waitress was very good she stayed on top of our drinks the who time. Our chef did an amazing show!! I think they gave me the wrong steak it was supposed to be the filet mignon but it was extremely grisly and fatty. We were surprised there was no fried noodles but did like the corn in the fried rice. We will be back next year.More

We have not been to a Japanese Steakhouse in many years and we were very pleasantly pleased at the quality and quantity of the food,. They tableside chef was great and made it an experience for all those who were at our table that night...in particular for the 8 year old girl celebrating her birthday that evening.More

I haven't been to this type of restaurant in years. I forgot how entertaining it is. The food was wonderful. We shared the steak, shrimp and scallops. With the veggies, rice, soup and salad, we had plent. I would say the only drawback is the...price. Even sharing with tip and our sodas, our bill was $50. The taste of the food though was worth every penny.More

We are locals who have gone here for special occasions over the years... and unfortunately, it's steadily gone down hill from good, to average, to poor. It's just not worth the money. The last three times, my family and I were disappointed by having a...chef who didn't seem to really care. He seemed kind of miserable. (There always seems to be one chef in the place putting energy into it, but we never get him!) And elements of our meal were not cooked properly. Burnt eggs in the fried rice. Over-cooked filet and shrimp. The "show" as well (as the food quality) is key. My husband and I are teachers, and with our 2 sons this was our fancy-meal-before-school-starts place. But not anymore. I can't justify spending $150 to be disappointed again.More

Normally I pick out the items that I like off my plate. This time I cleaned it. The rice was the best that I have ever gotten at a place like this. Everyone ate all of their food and we tried to squeeze in a...second visit but time got away from us. Very good place.More

Not only were we at a table with the loudest rudest people imaginable but the food was sub par. The 2nd star was for the laughs from seeing people try to catch shrimp in their mouth

We went on New Years Eve and the place was packed but we still got seated in 20 minutes. The chef was fun and kept us entertained. Tge shrimp and lobster was fresh and tasty.
