The atmosphere, food, and total experience are up there with the best hibachis I've had. If you're in Minot and love hibachi, this is your place.

Very attentive service. Great food and presentation. The chef was made aware of food allergies in our group, and was conscientious in making sure not to cross-contaminate.

good food and fun atmosphere. Staff was fun and the hibachi was good. A little pricey on the drinks but they don't skimp on the liquor

I always go for sushi... its Always great, Made fresh, and affordable. Prompt service during the day, your wait can be somewhat long if they are at all busy.

We have eaten at a few of the other Sakura's but this was the first time at the Minot location. It seemed to be very dirty, maybe they had a busy lunch. The service was excruciatingly slow. The food was good and camw in a timely manner. My sushi roll was not the one I ordered but I ate it... More

The food here was not good. I had a cup of hot and sour soup, some sashimi and some edamame. The soup was a little spicy and the edamame was ok (hard to go wrong with that). The sashimi was just bad. I had to spit out my salmon, old grainy and falling apart. When I put it in my... More

A little on the expensive side, but that's how most of these restaurants are. The chefs that cook in front of you are very friendly and professional. The wait staff is wonderful as well. Love the sushi!

Go to the restaurant with the intention of a unique dining experience and realize that your bill could be $40 a head. To have a professional chef prepare your food in front of you is fantastic. It seems hit and miss with the chef and the entertainment value. We heard lots of excitement and hollering from the table beside us.... More
