Review of Sakura - CLOSED

This is another all u can eat japanese/chinese buffet,this one located in scenic North Bay Village just off JFK causeway,got a nice private parking,easy access and a very nice decor inside,very modern,the food is not bad but somewhat disapointing,for dinner is plenty of sashimi,snow crab and shrimp,but considering that actually this market is very competitive and cutthroat,i'll give it a nice 6,a cut above average,it was like 20 bucks a pop so can't complain much,i may return there though,but only if i run out of other options

We ate here on Saturday night - the place looks nice and stylish inside, but the food was of poor quality and very limited on choice, sushi - lots of it was unlabelled so I didn't touch those dishes, prawns had not been de-veined, so I didn't eat them, some of it looked old like it had been thee for a Wylie. Not very fresh. The hot buffet wasn't much better - re-heated and dried looking salmon, rice was not nice and the chicken was chewy. The wonton soup however was very nice. Deserts - tinned fruit, cheap cake and angel delight. In my opinion very overpriced at 19 dollar per head before drinks and tax. The restaurant was freezing and empty and the waitress was so busy texting on her online we could have left without paying Nd she probably wouldn't have noticed! Take my advice - give this one a miss

This place use to be a buffet with a different name. It closed due to gross food, inspection failures and other things. Sakura seems to be heading in the same direction. I love eating out and I frequent many restaurants. I was hoping this one close to home was going to be a hit, sadly it was not. Sushi was gross, food had no taste and was extremely overpriced.
