Their tempura is some of the best I have ever had - very light and flaky. They had a nice selection of Sake; we enjoyed a bottle of unfiltered Nigiri. We shared one sashimi and tempura dinner that was more than enough for two people....More

Sakura has a lunch menu that is definitely a bargain in the sushi world. For $12.95 you get soup, salad and I chose the "sushi roll combo". Today I had Dynamite, Jackson, and fresh salmon roll. YUMMY. The fish is the freshest in town. Never...More
