It was a chill dinner night for us, so we have chosen teppenyaki. We took menu, which includes starters, main dish, soup, salad and dessert. We ordered seafood for for persons, but even 2 orders for 4 persons would be enough. It is a nice show, which you will like it.

The highlight of the dinner was the live cooking show from one of their chefs. It was very entertaining to watch and the prawns were very tasty and full of flavours for the palate. The staff is friendly and attentive. A pleasant experience!

We did the Friday night brunch & were very impressed with the service & food. Really loved that the chefs came to the table & cooked the main courses right in front of us. The sea bass especially was incredible! Our chef was a great entertainer & made it such a fun experience for us! My only criticism was that... More

Top of the line customer service offered by their staff. Great ambiance, it almost makes you feel that you are in the country (japan) itself. Very relaxing vibe while waiting for our food to be served. Kudos to Chef Jojo for serving a mouth watering sushi dish and Chef Varn for the teppanyaki, it is indeed something you must visit...

The level of service at Sakura was impeccable - the staff were attentive and very polite. We were pleasantly surprised by the good quality of both the sushi and the teppanyaki, as restaurants generally find it challenging to maintain the standard of both types of cuisine. We highly recommend the tuna tataki as a starter and will definitely return to... More

It was my first time with Sakura's Izakaya night and was really impressed. The teppanyaki was really good and the beef and chix was perfect with the sauce. There is not so many choices a you would expect in a buffet but they have everything that i wanted. Tempura was served freshly made, they have wide selection of shashimi and... More
