Our favorite Japanese restaurant. Food is wonderful. Selection is good. Sushi is like eating in Tokyo. It is family friendly.

We have been here a few times for sushi, which is pretty good for Akron. This time I branched out to try something else. I got the porkbone ramen. It was very porky. And the noodles looked more like spaghetti than ramen. Stick to the sushi.

Nice atmosphere. Usually order for take out but decided to eat in tonight. Sat at the bar, chefs made sushi right in front of us. Banana tempura desert is worth trying. Sushi excellent as usual. Good tips on what to order from wait staff.

I travel and eat sushi all over the country in some of the finest restaurants. I still find myself comparing it to Sakura. Some of the finest rolls I've ever eaten.

Sakura was a pleasant surprise and we will be going again. It's a nice restaurant with pleasant decor. Our server was extremely attentive and great at her job. We started with an appetizer from the sushi bar. Jalapeños Puff was very fresh, which translates to spicy because of those jalapeños. The two maki rolls we got were the Stop Light... More

Nice sushi place. Menu is big, and typical. Fish was some of the best quality I've had; tasted buttery. Surprised with extras; small app "salad" of crab meat and cucumber with sauce was brought out complimentary, as well as a segmented orange with the check which was a nice touch. While menu is typical, presentation is very bright and colorful... More

Came here for dinner with colleagues and absolutely loved the food. Service was spot-on. The rolls are made fresh and pricing is quite reasonable. Def. try the King Vegetarian Roll.

We came here for our first sushi date over a year ago and come back atleast twice a month if not more. They have an amazing amount of specialty rolls. We have never had a bad meal here and always receive great service. Sushi is wonderful as well as the Miso and salad. Great apps as well.

Loved the sushi here. We've been to several places in the area and the rolls would fall apart while picking them up, but these rolls stay together and are tasty! Our server seemed s bit lazy. He saw i was out of water but took 10 minutes to come by and ask if I wanted more. Luckily, other staff members... More

Loved< loved<loved the wasabi and the tempura, the salad isn't worth it at all, but recently the tempura was just okay AND the tea and the service were slow and not so good. will go back to see if that was a minor glitch.
