“Spectaclular attention to detail.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

My wife and I frequently eat here. Don't let the location (in a shopping mall) fool you into not eating here. Clean as a whistle. Menu is pretty standard for a sushi place, but the execution is outrageously good. All ingredients are fresh (not a given in this culinary space). Servers are prompt and courteous. Best sushi anywhere, including L.A.

Recommended item: the "Dragon". Try it. You won't regret ordering this masterpiece. Delicious and unique.

Interesting side note: Sakura Bana place has a following not only for Jacksonians, but also apparently for those who film in Jackson as is testified by the pics hanging around of celebrities who have visited. Sandra Bullock, Alec Baldwin, and Rob Reiner are just some of the people who have enjoyed this place.

“Good sushi, slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

I love some of Sakura Bana's sushi, but usually get carry out. The minimum quoted wait is 30 minutes even if there's just a few diners, and it usually runs about 20 minutes longer than that. With that being said, their Beef Negima (thin steak wrapped around asparagus and mozzeralla then topped with house teriyaki) keeps me coming back. Love the Kodiak Shrimp, Mango Roll, 3 Bean Roll and more. My guys like the BBQ Salmon Dynamite and Spicy Tuna rolls. All in all really good fresh sushi. No online menu and the ones that pop up on many sites (that are typed into a uniform format) miss the vast majority of the menu. There are also many specials not on the menu.

“Subpar fish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Didn't use sushi grade tuna in either the tuna steak or the rolls I ordered. Waitress seemed unconcerned that I did not finish both. I've had better sushi in states 1000 miles from the ocean.

“Still good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

It has been years since I have eaten here but it is still very good. The layout has changed since I first went there several years ago. It is much brighter and I love the menu with the pictures on it.

“Little Tokyo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

They had great food and really nice workers, but the service was a little slow for only a few people being in the restaurant.
