“Japanese gem in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We had two great meals here and were really delighted both times with the quality of the food! The restaurant wasn't very crowded so our service was prompt and the "hibachi" chef was masterful. Given US prices, I felt the meal was reasonable in cost.

“Good japanese food, pricey!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

I enjoyed "the boat" the prepare with different types of sushi, shashimi, etc. The wine options are very limited and sometimes they do not have the best ones. The restaurant is a bit pricey.

“Not too many good places in Costa Rica”
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”
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”
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.
