I Always enjoy this place .
Its welcoming decor and tasty offerings give Bensalem foodies a place to hang out and indulge.
For hipsters, homeboys, and hoity-toity types, this place rocks.

My husband and I have been coming to Sakura for a few years now, mostly on Friday nights. It can get pretty crowded, a lot of young people frequent this place (young as compared to us 40-ish and 50-ish). Part of the reason has to be that there is an extensive selection of sushi at 50% off ... but the quality is also consistently very good. Comfortable, clean and modern decor, friendly but sometimes a little on the slow side service, excellent value for money, BYOB. In addition to sushi, their bento boxes are not to be missed. Recently went to Oishi in Newtown and experienced inferior quality sushi and service at more than double the price!
Thanks to Sakura, I was able to treat my husband's birthday party guests to a HUGE platter of sushi rolls that fed more than 20 people for under $100 (would have been $200 anywhere else)!!!

Sakura has great 50% select sushi every day of the week. It is prepared as you wait. Servers are not always friendly, which is why I subtracted one star. However, the food is good, and very reasonably priced. Many students at the local high school enjoy going for an inexpensive, interesting meal with friends. Presentation of the food ordered is nicely arranged and picture worthy, many times I have seen the teenagers post the picture on Facebook of the meal when it is served. The interior is interesting with tables with colorful tiled tops, and booth type seating. They also have hibatchi style meals if you are not in the mood for sushi. Well-priced, excellent food. Just need to work a bit on the customer service by the greeters and servers to make it excellent. (Greeting and thanking customers is appreciated and goes a long way.)

Nice place. The food very tasty and they serve it very nicely. Place is tucked away to rear of a small shopping center so you can easily pass it off Route 70. Prices are in line with other places. Would go back again & recommend a friend

Lots of sushi choices at half price, starting at $2.50 per roll. BYOB. Beer and wine store two buildings over, but remember in PA that you can't buy single bottles of beer, so best to bring your own from home. Try to get there early as the wait can be VERY long once they get busy. An order of edamame can take the edge off your hunger, and they are delicious!
