This place is fantastic because of the value! If you want Tsukiji market quality sushi, this isn't the place. But it's pretty darn good and you can eat til you're full without breaking the bank. The regular food menu is pretty large for non-sushi fairing...More

Sakura has been around for years. It has always had great Japanese food, from their sushi to their dumplings. It was a local place for so long and I miss that--no lines, come day or night and sit right down. Well, it went and got...More

Sakura is always busy and takes no reservations, so either show up right when they open or be prepared to wait a little while in a crowded interior on just outside the front door. The good news: it is worth the wait! The food is...More
