Description: Nestled in Belfast's bustling Botanic Avenue, Sakura Sushi restaurant brings a taste of Tokyo to the city streets of Northern Ireland. Named after Japan's national flower – the cherry blossom – this sweet and shiny sushi restaurant is split over two floors and filled with glazed walnut furniture, a feature floral wall, bright and bubbly background music and cute Japanese lanterns. On the ground floor you can sit at the sushi train and choose from a superb selection of fresh sushi and sashimi or meals such as the salt and chilli sea bass or the roasted pork with curry udon noodles, while upstairs offers a variety of flexible spaces with plush carpets and sliding doors that are perfect for private parties.

Obento is a good japanese restraunt.but very small and cramped
Wagamama is overpriced and the food is not great
but the sakura imho is actually the best place for japanese food in belfast, very warm atmosphere and the servers are so friendly and professional
beautifully decorated, wonderful music , the food is delicious.
I have been here on several visits and never been disappointed, Really good restraunt

I have been to this restaurant a number of times and have never had a bad meal. The tempura maki duck rolls are definitely worth a try.

I loved Sakura! Their miso soup is out of this world, and the sushi train was great, lots to choose from. I went at lunchtime and the prices were reasonable, but I think the evening prices are a little steeper. I would recommend this restaurant for a great healthy lunch, and the location is handy too.

I am addicted to here and find it so difficult to try anywhere else in Belfast so everyone is dragged in with me and they too want to go back. Healthy food that I wish I could get outside the city. A great range of sushi and at a sensible price. I love the clean set-up and how efficient it is here and in the heart of everything going on in this very pleasant part of Belfast!

I was really excited to see the kaiten sushi bar, but was a bit disappointed at the variety. Not much to choose from on the conveyor belt. I guess when you've been to the best in Tokyo this was very mediocre. DO NOT order the Salted Chilli Chicken. I'm an American and they tasted worst than a McDonald's chicken nuggets. So disappointed.
