Always when we are in Chiang Mai we have to go for some Japanese Food and the definate best Place to go is the Sakura Restaurant. Fortunately the Restaurant is still a hidden Juwel in the back side of Amora Hotel. The food is fresh and tasty and no Japanese Restaurant can even close compare with the price. For me... More

Went in for lunch recently. I was quite relieved to have the entire menu in accurate pictures. No words need to be spoken. The food is very bland in contrast to thai fare.

I read the reviews and decided to give it a try! Sushi was good... I came for the ramen and my mouth was watering on my way! The ramen lacked flavor and had this weird fishy smell and taste to it... How?!! I had been craving it all day too :(

This place almost always have Japanese clientele dining heartily. Come with patience, be willing to greet the proprietor warmly and enjoy her cooking, and she will warm up to you! We ordered the Japanese Curry and Tonkatsu on Rice Set that came with Miso Soup and Pickled Napa Cabbage. The portion was so large, we stretched it with 4 more... More

Sakura is located just outside the popular Thaphae Gate area on a small soi right behind the Amora Hotel. Their Japanese food provides a bit of change from Thai food at a reasonable price (most dishes go for around $2 - $3) far cheaper than most Japanese restaurants in Thailand. The menu is limited however and there is absolutely zero... More

We only discovered this little gem of a place because it if opposite the guesthouse in a narrow street where we stayed. It is an assuming little place full of Japanese locals as well as others especially around lunch time. They do both Japanese and Thai food and even have a picture menu which is very useful. We have eaten... More
