They give you tons of rice and veggies to cover up the small portions of meat. Good to dine at once in a while for the experience but pricey. My son enjoyed how his food is cooked right in front of him but other than that, nothing much to look forward to.

If you like a cooking show and food being thrown around, it's an ok place to visit. But not some where I would want to go often. It is a little pricy, and not that great a value in my opinion. Tables seat about 10 people so if you have less they You are also seat you with other people.... More

Our family decided to eat here on Christmas Eve. As we arrived, there was a musty smell to the place, but we ignored it and proceeded to our table anyway. As soon as we sat down a roach ran out from beside the grill top and ran around our plates across the table. We stood up and left the restaurant.

Let me start off by saying that as soon as we walked in the door we wanted to leave. There was an overpowering musty/moldy smell that permeated the restaurant. I suspect the source of the moldy smell was the carpet in one section of the restaurant but even sitting on the non-carpeted side, the smell was awful. As to the... More

Went for lunch w/ Friends. Hadn't been in here ...ever! Restaurant has been open for years and the inside showed it - dark wood, dull with age. Our table (not Habachi table) was sticky as was the chair. Ordered Steak and rice. Came with salad and stir-fried veggies. Steak was tasty and as ordered, rice fluffy and veggies not over-cooked....

I visited Sakura with my husband and his little sister in July 2016. As hibachi places go, this was fairly ordinary. We were seated around the hibachi with two other families and placed our orders. A little while later, the hibachi chef came out and began preparing our orders. The food was tasty, if unexceptional. Fried rice, steak, shrimp, veggies,... More

I do not care for Sakura. I love teppanyake. But this place uses way too much oil and sesame seeds. The food tasted like oil. Their sushi is amazing though. The dinner prices are ridiculous. We go out to dinner a lot and are willing to pay if it's worth it. But this place is absurdly priced in my opinion.... More

While on vacation some of the family decided to dine here. Although it was okay it could have used more seasoning. I'm used to Miyabi back home so the standards are pretty high. Did not have much business but overall I enjoyed myself. Would I try it again? Yes but it would not be my first choice.
