Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went for lunch and had the hibachi grill. I ordered salad, white rice and clear soup. Daughter and grandson ordered shrimp on the cooktop. They have the best, hands down clear soup and miso soup on the planet! The shrimp were perfectly cooked and everything was fantastic! No wait and great staff. Cannot wait to go back😊

Had the hibachi grill and all was good. The cook was very friendly and funny. There was an older lady at the table that had never been and he did "do it up" for her! Food was good and portions were big!

It's an older building but it didn't take awy from the experience. Their was a koi pond and sittin area in the... More

It looked good when we came in to eat. The grill is part of the table, they spray oil on the grill and then light it and the fire jumps high in the air. The chef then comes and cooks everything on the grill. That's the good part. As the food is cooking, I saw that the chef is sweating... More

There is great variety on this buffet. The price is very reasonable for the buffet. There is a very good selection for salads/cold seafood appetizers where are very good. The sushi bar is fair. The 3 hot buffet lines have soups and main course items and you can have your own selection grilled for you if you wish. The people... More

Typical Japanese restaurant but the decor is pretty neat. The service and chef were good and they paid attention to our every need. Food tasted really fresh and cooked to order. Had a great time...

Food is so good. My son doesn't like anything but my cooking and he loves Sakuras. Service is awesome. Except this last time... They were really short staffed and the cook was not personable at all. Usually they have jokes and do a show. Not this last guy. Anyway. I would still go back..again and again. Love it!

We ate at the grill and the food and chef were pretty good. I gave them a 4 because I have honestly had better... There is a pretty neat coy pond out front for the kiddos to look/feed the fish. The inside is dated but the service was great. The whole wait staff team kept the glasses full and always... More
