The salmon and tuna sushi I ordered smelled fishy. And although the presentation of all our sushi choices was overall nicely done and large portions, I was disappointed that what I hoped would be fresh fish was not. It appeared my order was the only "fishy" smelling order. We went hear based upon our friends recommendation. Service was a bit... More

This was our first time dining at this location. We had some great rolls (very generous on the portions), udon soup, and a mermaid salad. Everything including the service was great.

I had lunch today at Sakura for the first time. The lunch menu was extensive. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. The service was outstanding. I had the salmon teriyaki which perfectly done. Included in the meal was a delicious rice, soup, salad, fresh vegetables and fruit to cleanse the palate. Great meal for a great price.

Their tempura is some of the best I have ever had - very light and flaky. They had a nice selection of Sake; we enjoyed a bottle of unfiltered Nigiri. We shared one sashimi and tempura dinner that was more than enough for two people. The creamy peanut salad dressing is amazing. Very tasty meal!

Sakura has a lunch menu that is definitely a bargain in the sushi world. For $12.95 you get soup, salad and I chose the "sushi roll combo". Today I had Dynamite, Jackson, and fresh salmon roll. YUMMY. The fish is the freshest in town. Never fishy tasting. We shared a mermaid salad which is always favorite--pieces of white fish, tuna,... More

We stumbled upon Sakura when we found the Japanese steakhouse we had planned to eat at closed for renovations. It was such a stroke of luck. The food was delicious and plentiful, delivered by kind and attentive servers. You won't get the theatrics on the hibachi that similar restaurants offer, but you will get a wonderful meal and a great... More
