It has been obvious on my many journeys down Stratford Road that the parking lot at Sakura is empty most of the time. I found out why. The food is not good. We ordered the "2 for $20 Special." The Japanese Egg Roll was excellent, but my Hibachi Steak tasted like liver - yuk! I couldn't finish my meal, and... More

Fresh tasty sushi. Good service and reasonably priced! Nice patio area. They full menu is very good, too! Wine selection is a little slim but the sake is great.

Have had several items on their menu and they have all been quite good. Edamame, Gyoza (steamed), Wake Forest Roll, and another roll I can't remember the name of but was tempura fried. Also had fresh salmon nigiri. All very good quality. The wasabi and ginger I think may not be the best, but perhaps that's being a bit picky.

A friend wanted to come here for Sushi. I do not do Sushi, but they have a Hibachi and Tempura menu. I had the Hibachi Steak, it was good and beautifully presented. Service was good and the price was reasonable.

It is hard to get in and out of the restaurant. it not offers much for people who cannot eat japanese food. there were people in our group that could not eat janpanese food and wanted to come with the rest of people who like japanese food.

This small restaurant is located in a strip mall in Midway south of Winston Salem NC. It is about 2 miles across the Forsyth Country border into Davidson County. We decided to try this and support the few restaurants we have in Midway. We were very pleased! The Hibachi pork & shrimp with mixed veggies and fried rice was delicious.... More

The environment is very casual. Nice and quick servers. The sushi is great and our kids love the Chicken Teriyaki. The prices on sushi around Winston Salem is pretty much the same. A nice roll between $12-15 and Salmon nigiri $4 something. One simple roll $8.

I'm officially giving up on finding really good hibachi in this town. My husband said the sushi was really good. The service was great. Our waitress was really nice and accommodating. The teriyaki chicken and white sauce was better than any we've found here but that's not saying much. The chicken had a slimy feel and it also had these... More
