Excellent sushi, wide range of choices. Weird policy on their side salad, but the sushi is first rate. I've been served by two sushi chefs, one is very pleasant, the other extremely cranky, so much so he's almost amusing.

They r SO unfriendly, brusque(?) and they serve boiling hot soup in styrofoam or plastic! I felt like i'd get cancer. We are paying for the location.

Sakura Express has huge varieties of Sushi, Sashimi as well as hot Japonize dishes. The fish is always very fresh there. It's a small and friendly mid-range priced place with a few tables inside. The chef is excellent and the service is fast =)!

I get their party platter for takeout a lot. Unfortunately they do not do delivery, but if you're looking for cheap sushi that still tastes decent, I would order Sakura.

From outside, it looks questionable, even you stepped in. It's mainly made for the take out. Everything is served with plastics. But, Sushi was much better than it looked but it's pricey.

We have been taking out from here for years. Good sushi at reasonable prices. Well made and fresh. We typically take out one if their specialty roll or sushi platters.
