“Not too many good places in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

Never have been disappointed with their food. If you have more than 2 guests order a boat with sushi.

Just commenting because there is not much choice here and they always have been good.

“One of the best sushi meals I've had”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Wyndham (what a disappointment) and chose Sakura because it is in walking distance to the hotel (it's practically connected). The service was excellent and the sushi was fresh and presented beautifully. The meal wasn't cheap, but it was a wonderful experience.

“Good Japonese option in San Jose”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

Very important to mention that Costa Rica, for me, do NOT mean fusion food or creative food, so, it´s a very honest Japonese restaurant. Nothing in special in the menu, but good quality sushi and sashimi. Should invest on some creative or high fusion Japonese menu.

“Sakura Restaurant at Wyndham Herradura”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

The media shows it as a very good restaurant. But my experience was mixed: the salmon sashimi was a tiny portion for the price, and did not taste OK. The wasabi was weak (probably doused with starch). The attendants were all very nice, though. But thre I shall never return! The salmon sashimi I ate came with a cheap plastic decoration of a plant, instead of a real live parsley or whatever.
