I used to frequent this place as I lived in the area and always loved this restaurant - sushi was good and they had a few interesting offerings, the service was never horrible and you basically always paid half price if you order smart. Fast forward to a year later - we went there for lunch on a weekend and... More

Went to Sakura on a quiet Wednesday afternoon and had some lovely sushi. Not a lot of people in but the waitress and food were excellent and would defiantly recommend you try it.

Strolling around Harfield Village midday recently, the wife and I decided to pop into this establishment which we have always basically ignored. Being sushi lovers we were immediately drawn to the well stocked "conveyor" of fresh and colourful sushi dishes, positioning ourselves, without ado, for lunch! The sushi was excellent, as was the service. As a result, we have returned... More

Some nice sushi and some totally horrible sushi. Add overworked rice and you're left with indifference. To their credit they did take the item we complained about off the bill, but no wow factor.

The service is almost non existent, they should get rid of their waiting staff. The waitress kept fidgeting with her hair and touching her face instead of checking on guests to see if their okay. We waited 10 min to be served and for almost 20 min for our food even thought the restaurant was not busy. Definitely will not... More

The service is absolutely terrible. We made a 7pm reservation and arrived 15 minutes early as we were cognisant of the groupon which we had for a 40 piece platter. Arriving 15 minutes early did not help- we waited well over an hour for our order. We are forced to ask the waitress regarding the progress... At no point were... More

I used to visit this place quite often and it was very very good sushi. Then they decided to expand and opened in Rondebosch, the 1st time there was good but since then it is bad - sushi actually tastes stale. The same can be said for the Harfield village branch as well. The service was reasonable but now its... More

Bad service. The waiter was M.I.A Sushi didn't taste fresh. Was pre made and stored in containers which they did not even try and hide. Also everything was covered in sweet chilli sauce.

My husband and I decided to try out Sakura in Harfield Village and we were very disappointed with the service. When we arrived we were told to sit anywhere which we felt was unprofessional as it is polite for the hostess to show you to your table. We then decided to sit at the belt. Sushi was half price but... More

It's not all that easy to find restaurants in the Southern Suburbs - they tend to be tucked-away secrets only known to the locals. If you're staying in Claremont, Kenilworth or Harfield, and like nipping out for good-quality sushi at not-Waterfront prices, this is your spot. We've eaten here countless times - the quality is very consistent. Great selection of... More
