4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Good variety of foods oriental style. We go for the Sushi. Nice and prompt service. Have not tried it at lunch time so don't know if prices are different.

“Good Asian in Leonardtown!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We have been here three times now. I order the Bento box each time and it is so good and so much food! We have had sushi rolls, hibachi? Grill stuff for the kids, seaweed salad, etc...This is now our go-to when we crave Asian. I can't stand Chinese buffets so I am very glad this opened! Service was efficient each time! Go and enjoy--we need to make sure this restaurant stays around for a while! I don't care for the Asahi and Okada show at all and the food is better here than those places anyway!

“Family-Run with Pride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

We are glad for this restaurant - both because of the food and because the owners so genuinely want to provide hospitality and service. We had the fun of attending a special Lunar New Year's meal. The dishes were quite extraordinary - both magnificently beautiful in presentation and delicious. It was also great fun to sample some Malaysian food.

Despite the name, and their regular menu, the restaurant offers a broader array of interesting cuisine. Daily specials will include Malay food, varying according to the ingredients that they are able to obtain. So while there is a typically broad menu of sushi and Japanese specialties, the restaurant offers some surprises, as well.

Note, too that the restaurant changed ownership on Dec 1, 2013 (so earlier reviews are not really relevant). This is now run by a Malay family, who are working very hard to make it work. They take pride in their food and service. They have decided to remain open throughout the afternoon, in order to be a resource for people who may want to meet there between normal lunch and dinner hours - and sample some good food while conversing. They are also open 7 days/week.

So we hope that many will give them a chance. As another reviewer mentioned, do not let the building (which has changed restaurants several times) put you off. Enter the building and feel yourself to be in Asia. Enjoy the food, and the hospitality of the very engaging and determined owner.

It's great to have a restaurant that is not a big-box chain, and is locally owned while something different in terms of cuisine. A really nice addition to the offerings in/near Leonardtown!

We hope this restaurant will be a great success - for their sake, but also for the community.

“Quick and authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Sakura Bar and Grill features sushi, sashimi, lunch specials, tempura, and hibachi. I ordered chicken yaki soba, which came with a salad--a totally satisfying meal for a busy traveler. The bar also has special promotions, such as ladies night, and I recommend this clean and friendly place for anyone who likes Asian food.
