This restaurant have 2 menus, Japanese and Thai. The food is fine but not extraordinary, it missed the touch of Asian people and ambiance since it manage by the locals. The price for 18 pieces of sushi and sashimi is 22.000 CFA, which is standard in Gabon. The sushis are fresh..

Staff is helpful even though they don't speak English. service was good and meals came quickly. Cooked Food was ok, I had a prawn dish which was quite bad but the Sushi was delicious. I'll go back but just for the sushi.

They are well priced for quality food and a variety of dishes including sushi, soups,salads and other Asian dishes.I highly recommend the Citronelle (local lemongrass tea) as a digestive. It is recommended to... More

I went 3 times to Sakura during my time in Libreville, and Sakura is the first and only japanese restaurant. First, the atmosphere : very cold! The quality of the food is good, but the price charged for sushis and sashimis is just prohibitive...this is too expensive The service is ok, but for the price charged, it should be improved!

We visited this restaurant on suggestion of our taxi driver, we were a little apprehensive at first but it all vanished just as we entered the place. A lot of attention was paid to the waiting area , upkeep and maintenance of the restaurant, which impressed us. The interior of the restaurant is very well done and is very appealing.... More

Very nice restaurant! Waitresses and waiters were just awesome though the service could be a little faster. They were all friendly but yet professional. The food very good, especially for Libreville standards given that Asian restaurants here are predominantly Chinese. The prices are a bit high but definitely worth it! I'd go back again! 😋! Oh, and Léa, our waitress... More

My third time in this restaurant , like it , food is delicious as usual however they need to speed up the service , it took them time to prepare our order. Soup was super , They must resolve the issue of VIsa card , they do not accept it .
