I've had sushi before and really enjoy it but was skeptical to try a sushi bar. The skepticism is gone. This was really good food and reasonably priced. I had an 8 piece chefs choice assortment with California rolls for $18.00. AWESOME

We love Sakura! Friendly service and delicious sushi. They also have a great drink menu and make a mean martini.

Sushi restaurants have recently become very popular. Tried many. This one stands out as the best. Very small, friendly staff, fresh ingredients with a large menu. Something for everyone, even those that don't enjoy sushi. Good specials on specialty rolls and drinks throughout the week....More

This little gem is amazing! The sushi is the best in the Des Moines metro. The service and staff are fast, fun, and friendly as well. All of their rolls are great but I highly recommend the "Hot Lover Roll" and "Happy Five". Even if...More
