A great meal experience. Chef Eric was OUTSTANDING, very enjoyable to watch prepare the food right in front of you. Also very helpful while he was preparing the food in providing useful information on the area. Food quality was excellent and prepared exactly as everyone wanted. Great experience overall.

The restaurant wasn't that crowded the night we were there, but they couldn't get us in until 9pm. The service was very slow. It appeared that there was only one chef at that time and we had to wait for him to cook for another table. This didn't go well with our children. Our drinks, soup, and salads were slow... More

Tempura batter so heavy it felt like having fish and chips, scallops cooked to hockey puck stage, steak nuked, nothing less than a disaster....

Every time we visit Flagstaff we eat here. Never a bad meal. Food always good and service is fast. They time out the courses very well, so you don't have to wait too long in between. Our "show" was not quite as good as usual. Not sure if our guy was new or not. His knife skills were not up... More

I'm 69 years old and came in off the road tired and hungry. Stayed at Doubletree so just walked into Sakura. Apparently you're not supposed to do that. The desk I was supposed to formally check in with also served the attached regular restaurant where I've always eaten before...thought that was for that restaurant. So there's suddenly a bunch of...

We recently celebrated our daughter's graduation from NAU at this restaurant and had one of the most memorably delicious meals we have ever had! They take reservations, (very important to us), which most no other restaurant in the entire city did! Chef Antonio was absolutely WONDERFUL. The food was delicious and the show was superb! Highly, highly recommend them both... More

This was the first time I had been to a restaurant like this and I was blown away with the graciousness of Chef Antonio. He entertained us throughout the meal preparation and did an excellent job of making the children a big part of the fun. We didn't know what to expect but had a great time and would definitely...

Chef Antonio prepared a great meal, was very personable & made the "show" fun for the kids. He made sure to cook the food to our liking. We'll definitely go back & hopefully see Chef Antonio again!
