We started our meal off with an icredible sushi roll. I'll be darn if I can't remember the name, but it was the third one down on their list -- shrimp tempura, avacado, crunchy tuna??? Mmmmmm... Their salad and soup were the typical, but fresh...More

It's a little humid in the dining area. Makes me wonder about the sushi, but I haven't gotten sick. The food tastes good, but I think they put something on it to preserve it and is a little iffy.

The chef was excellent. The food has amazing flavor. The restaurant itself looks run down. And the yard needs mowed. But don't let the appearance fool you. The food is good. And for the first time, they didn't automatically add the tip to our bill....More

All I can say is, hire MORE help. I really feel like I don't have to wait an hour and 15 minutes to get three sushi rolls. Lack of attention, lack of me asking why it's taking so long, and a lack of freaking English....More

Sakura staff got our group of 30 in on a busy Saturday night. Had to sit at three separate grills, but dinner show was lively. Food was good, a little pricey like most places like this are (paying for the show as well).

If you are looking for a fun place to go on a birthday or special occasion, this place is it. The sushi is really good and the Japanese cook it in front of you- flip it in the air food is also fantastic.

My favorite Hibachi grill closed due to a leasing dispute, but I missed it enough to give another restaurant a chance. Sakura didn't disappoint me! Lunch is reasonably priced, and it wasn't busy. I found it to be an undervalued gem!
