We had seen the reviews for Sakura and decided to try it out on our journey through Indiana. When we found the restaurant we noticed a very unassuming building whose parking lot was almost totally filled. We ordered Rolls which were on sale that day. The waitress asked if we wanted green tea and we said that we did. The... More

Sakura is traditionally the place to go to for Sushi in Indy. It is always busy. The atmosphere is invitingly Japanese with placards signed by celebrity customers posted along the top of the walls providing a touch of local flavor. We have been here several times and it has yet to disappoint.

Honestly the best sushi place in indy! Always so quick and fresh, with very attentive service! I always look forward to going and eating sushi, drinking plum wine, and enjoying the atmosphere.

We thought this is one of the best in town based on their long history and other online review. The food is mediocre at best. The service is extremely slow and waitress even forgot what we ordered and kept us waiting for an extended period. We were very disappointed with this place. Korean Mama' is far better if you don't... More

My parents started taking me to Sakura when I was a kid, and I loved the miso soup, tempura, edamame and chicken teriyaki (all are still incredible). As new dining options have opened in Indy over the years, I've been excited to try different Japanese restaurants, but nothing beats this place on freshness and flavor. The nigiri here is surprisingly... More

Never fails to deliver authentic Japanese food in generous American portions. The quality is always fresh. The salad is still so crunchy fresh with its special Japanese dressing.

I heard about Sakura and have driven past it several times but was leery. I went in and first I must say the place was crowded but we were able to get a table. The service was decent for it to be a busy night. I ordered the soft shell blue crab roll and a couple of rolls with smoked... More

We used to eat here a lot when we first moved to the north side but the service got to be suspect so we started going to Tomo instead which was good but decided to give Sakura a try again. Glad we did as service has been great each time. The sushi is always fresh but often the rolls aren't... More
