“Very friendly atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I use this restaurant mainly for take away deliveries and the food is always A* standard but every now and again it's nice to visit, enjoy being waited on by very friendly staff and relax. The only downside is that there isn't a lot of parking close by (a few 'free' bays in Crown Street behind) other than that you have to park in one of the town car parks (where you have to pay to stay) and then walk through into the High Street - neither are a trek away!

“Empty on a Saturday night!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

We had already been to a couple of restaurants that night in Brentwood to be told that there was at least an hour wait so we were surprised to find the Sakura empty bar one table! Should that set alarm bells ringing? We were hungry so stayed and the food was good, not great and the service was ok but could have been better by the staff being a bit more friendly. We were not asked if we wanted any dessert or coffees!

“Great food, service and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Highly recommended! This is our go-to Indian restaurant in Brentwood - we live locally and visit 2-3 times a month.

I love Indian restaurant food, and in my experience (quite extensive!), put the food at The Sakura up there with the best of them.

As another reviewer has said, it's not just about the food but the service and atmosphere too - both of which are great. From walking in and being greeted by the friendly owner or staff, to paying the bill, you will made to be feel welcome and receive a top level of service.

I'm looking forward to heading back!

“Rude staff, had to leave”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Friday night, people having fun. And we saw more than one group of people being refused service after they had sat down. I was there with my family, but, couldnt help notice how rude the staff and manager was.

Guys, food is not the only thing that a restaurant is all about. we would have stayed and returned if you were not that rude to these young innocent revellers.

Honestly, get your act right, or you wouldnt get what business you get now. \your restaurant half empty and all nearby indian restaurants all full says a lot. sorry, but thats how we felt.
