Great food and friendly staff. We call ahead and pick up from the drive thru most of the time. Eating in is great too and have been going here for years. Sushi is real yummy with a nice themed Wake Forest roll. My favorite is the teriyaki steak meal. Eating in ordered a great tasting sake drink with an Irish... More

This is one of my favorite places in Winston because they have a great patio area for outdoor dining. Unfortunately it was too cold today. But I ordered my usual, Philadelphia roll, side salad and miso soup. Was very tasty as always and the service was always attentive and never let my water go below halfway full.

It has been obvious on my many journeys down Stratford Road that the parking lot at Sakura is empty most of the time. I found out why. The food is not good. We ordered the "2 for $20 Special." The Japanese Egg Roll was excellent, but my Hibachi Steak tasted like liver - yuk! I couldn't finish my meal, and... More

Fresh tasty sushi. Good service and reasonably priced! Nice patio area. They full menu is very good, too! Wine selection is a little slim but the sake is great.

Have had several items on their menu and they have all been quite good. Edamame, Gyoza (steamed), Wake Forest Roll, and another roll I can't remember the name of but was tempura fried. Also had fresh salmon nigiri. All very good quality. The wasabi and ginger I think may not be the best, but perhaps that's being a bit picky.

A friend wanted to come here for Sushi. I do not do Sushi, but they have a Hibachi and Tempura menu. I had the Hibachi Steak, it was good and beautifully presented. Service was good and the price was reasonable.

It is hard to get in and out of the restaurant. it not offers much for people who cannot eat japanese food. there were people in our group that could not eat janpanese food and wanted to come with the rest of people who like japanese food.

This small restaurant is located in a strip mall in Midway south of Winston Salem NC. It is about 2 miles across the Forsyth Country border into Davidson County. We decided to try this and support the few restaurants we have in Midway. We were very pleased! The Hibachi pork & shrimp with mixed veggies and fried rice was delicious.... More

The environment is very casual. Nice and quick servers. The sushi is great and our kids love the Chicken Teriyaki. The prices on sushi around Winston Salem is pretty much the same. A nice roll between $12-15 and Salmon nigiri $4 something. One simple roll $8.
