This is the standard American Japanese Teppan style steak house. The owners seem to be Chinese as that is the language I heard them speaking. The food was good and the entertainment the standard for these places. If this is the sort of thing you are looking for go for it but it is not really my thing. We had... More

Made a reservation for 4 on Sat evening at 5:30. Not too overly crowded and we were seated right away. It took less than 5 minutes for the remaining 6 seats to be occupied and we were off to the races! The waitress came and took drink orders and quickly followed up with dinner orders. Our chef sure put on... More

We've been going here for probably 15 years and have always enjoyed the food. This time, we noticed that more than ever, the place is showing it's age - it's time to freshen up all the interior finishes - Really! I usually order the filet mignon and shrimp, but the steak and shrimp was the special. I noticed that the... More

This past weekend, we decided to treat ourselves to Sakura. Since we are a family of 5, pricing is a little more than we usually want to pay for dinner. THIS time, we only had my wife and I and our 16 year old son (who eats a lot). When we walked in, there was a board with dinner specials.....great!... More

We went as a group with children and everyone ate. The children did not like the fire. The chef did the typical tricks when cooking to entertain us. The food is good and it is cool to see them cooking right in front of you. There are many cooking stations with seating around it in the restaurant. I like the... More

Was very pleasantly surprised when my wife and I tried out Sakura last week. We'd been looking for a good hibachi place and were sorely disappointed in the Benihana in Bethesda. We decided the online reviews were good enough to give Sakura a shot and we are glad we did. The service was great as they kept our drinks filled... More

Your typical hibachi. Calm ambient, and entertaining to watch. Their food portions are pretty big. Definelty a nice place to go to for lunch or dinner.

So ok, this is a stereotypical cliché Japanese Steakhouse, where they cook on the hibachi in front of you. The food is good, nothing exceptional but exactly as you would expect. When you are in the mood, try it out.

We have gone to this restaurant for many years, especially on special occasions. We hadn't gone in about a year and went again last week. Boy, has there been a change for the worse. First, we noticed that as we walked to our table, our feet were sticking to the floor as we walked. Then we noticed a separate wood... More

I've had a lot of great experiences here in the past, but a few times I was disappointed. Pros: It's usually fast, friendly service. Strong, yummy, drinks (trust me you only need one and your feeling pretty good). Price isn't too bad for decent sushi, food is yummy, and the show is fun. Cons: There is one chef there that... More
