“Japanese best fooding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2011

I went to hotel Metropolitan to have Japanese food at sakura. We had best Japanese food experience in the past at the hotel. This time the restaurant was under renovation, so the food was available at their restaurant Zing. I felt that the quality of food is still the best. the restaurant was very lively. I met Chef and asked him for something new. Chef made okonomoyaki which was tasteful. I would love to be at the hotel again and again. Special thanks to Chef Akahira.

“Great Sushi and Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2011

First of all, when you are a foreigner living in Delhi, you have a natural suspicion of the preparation of all food in local restaurants. To actually try raw fish is quite the leap of faith! We tried Sakura during restaurant week in Delhi this year and found the food on their fixed menu to be high quality and delicious. We took a look at their normal menu and found the prices to be high, but not outrageous, but realized to best deal was their Sunday brunch buffet.

We arrived at 12:30 to beat the Indian crowd and much to our joy, found the restaurant full of Japanese patrons. Always a good sign. The buffet will run you around $60 US, but this includes all drinks (tea, wine, bottled water, Champaign, etc), tax and service. The buffet includes a diverse offering of Japanese cuisine from Tempura and noodle soups to traditional meat dishes and, of course, sushi. The presentation is typical Japanese, in that it is understated, but the quality and taste of all the food is outstanding. They had 5 or 6 different types of sushi, so do not expect the more exotic, but they do have all the basics covered.

To compliment the food, the service is first rate. We have been to many restaurants in Delhi over the time we have lived here and regardless of price, the service is always mediocre to poor. This is really the differentiator with Sakura. Never was my glass empty. Never did I have to ask twice for anything. Well done!

Overall, the combination of safe sushi and terrific service make Sakura a reoccurring stop for us in Delhi when we need a break from the chicken tikka!
