Ordered takeout on 1/3/17, was told 15 minutes so I waited. I left to pick up food after waiting 15 minutes and waited 25 minutes in line in drive thru. The food since last time was terrible. The rice and carrots were half cooked, and I don't think the chicken was cooked completely. Will not be back there to get... More

Had to search for the checkout area to p[lace a to go order and there was no one there. Now we are talking about 4:30 pm. On the... More

Food was good, portions were enough for yummy leftovers the next day. Service was a bit slow, but not a deal breaker. Next time we are he in area, I'll definitely come back to try the sushi.

If you want GREAT Japanese, this is your place! Excellent teriyaki steak, chicken, and shrimp! My husband loves all the sushi. We eat there at least once a week, and it is always consistent. Delicious! Also wonderful service and great owners. Can't go wrong.

I've been eating there for years, it is always great and fresh. My husband wouldn't even eat Japanese until I got him to come in and try their Panther Rolls. Yes, they do have cheese melted on top. Now he goes by the drive-through on his lunch hour to eat weekly. The sushi takes a little longer to come out... More

Our first time here this visit. You can just sit anywhere. No hostess. Had a nice japanese hibachi menu with good selection and reasonably priced for families. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Loved how teriyaki chicken was cut smaller than the big cuts I am used to at other places. Portions were good sized and the carrots were not overly... More

This is by for the greatest Asian cuisine this side of Charlotte North Carolina no one in Hickory North Carolina can compete with Sakura best sushi in the Western North Carolina region hands down. And I've spent much time in East Asia myself.

Ordered Teriyaki chicken and a bowl of soup. Brought my drink out with the bowl of soup. I had eaten about a 1/3 of the soup when the waitress brought out my meal. Finished the soup quickly and started eating my lunch. The problem with the plate was... the chicken had a reheated taste...pretty bad. I picked out the chicken... More

Great food and sushi for where it is. We usually go to Mooresville for sushi, but this was great. I will say though that the steak/shrimp dinner was as expensive as say a Kobes where they cook in front of you. So maybe a little overpriced, but still good. 3 meals for $54. Also wished there was music or something... More
