Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 December 2012

Good Sushi and pricing to match. Nicely decorated and very pleasing to the eye. Rolls were prepared to perfection and fresh. The chef even made us some special rolls not on the menu to try (on our first visit). There was one reviewer that said it was "terrible Chinese food" ... Sakura serves Japanese entrees/food. If you want sushi, go to Sakura's. We have not tried the hibachi, make your own decision here. We enjoyed this place very much and will certainly go back if we are in the area again.

Never in my life have I had such terrible Chinese food. We got a carry out which was missing a soup order. The egg rolls were about 1/3 the size I'm used to and tasted like old grease. The rice portions wouldn't feed a small child. To top it off my daughter threw up in the middle of the night. If you don't believe me just go eat there. Oh yes, The prices will shock you too.

We have been going there for years, and it used to be one of our favorite quick dine and take out restaurants, but no more. The last three or four times we have gone service has been awful, take out orders have been wrong and difficult to correct ( it's like pulling teeth to get sweet and sour sauce for take out), and this last time we have had stomach problems for two days. There will not be a next time! With all the new options, it's time to find a new reliable favorite.

Sakura has good food, fresh sushi (try the Volcano and Tam's spicy roll) and a relaxed atmosphere that welcomes kids and beach clothing. Has a great takeout business too. Located in the shopping center west of Main St along with Callahan's and Pepitos, 2 other good family restaurants that won't break the budget. Next to Old Time Pottery which has lots of inexpensive finds and is a good place to go when it rains after you drop the kids at the movies at Lively Cinema in the rear of the center. We have lived here for 25 years, love our locally-owned restaurants, and hate to hear about your bad meals at chain restaurants. Thanking for visiting our beautiful beaches!!

My husband and I decided to visit after reading all the great reviews on trip advisor. We were definitely disappointed. The Volocano Roll was literally covered in what seemed like cheesy rotel. We have visited places like Osaka in the past and thought this would be a good change but the sushi was basically like what we could get at Publix. Although the service was good the sushi was not that tastey! Sorry!
