Sakura doesn't look that big from the street, but it actually has plenty of seating. The menu has a large variety of dishes available -- almost too many to choose from. Your eyes will be bigger than your stomach. Combo entrees are really delicious.

The restaurant used to have a very authentic Japanese look and feel. We felt transported back to a Japan that we remembered. They have since updated the decor to attract millennials, logically, but the food and service are still just as good. And in fairness,...More

We really enjoyed the shushi menu & the soups. One guest got an entree and didn't totally care for it--but don't let that make your judgement. They surprisingly had super delicious wines! Don't judge the place by the looks. The servers don't dress professionally-- they...More

When this "Asian Bistro" restaurant replaced what was there, I had my doubts due to the title. But it's very, very good! The chefs make a real effort to make the dishes attractive as well as tasty and they get it to your table without...More
