I am sorry to have chosen to dine at Sakura tonight. Ny sushi crush got the best of me. The appearance is weak at best (even for a college town), and they are BYOB (fortunately the liquor store is 1 1/2 blocks away). I ordered a negamaki appetizer (that is..., found in the appetizer section of the menu), a shiitake... More

Excellent food and service for the value. This is a very nice reasonable restaurant for anyone and very easy to get to.

My wife and I enjoy sushi, so knew what we could expect from a visit to a Japanese-American restaurant. And it was reasonable, at least was my nabayaki udon. I enjoyed it, though the noodles seemed a bit overdone. Despite that, all else was good as were the rolls my son and wife ordered.

There are some small spaces that get adopted into sweet little charming restaurant and you just don't mind. Sakura is not one of those spaces. Let's start with green tea. When it finally arrived , almost at the end of my meal it was seriously and undrinkably bitter. Portions are so small, hand roll was literally one bite which probably... More

The sushi is exceptional, seaweed isn't chewy, fish tastes fresh and if great quality, presentation is tight and appealing. Enjoyed both classic rolls and their special rolls. Lunch specials are a great value! Loses 1 star (maybe 1.5), for seating and service. Make sure you get a decent seat and don't get stuck back in the cubby room with no... More

Our friends usually go elsewhere so this was a first and only visit for all of us. The portions were generous, but the service was lacking. Two of us had the shrimp tempura bento box, which had too much rice. My husband got the sashimi/sushi luncheon which he said was good. Our friends got one of the sushi boats which... More

I have been here countless times. Best sushi that I have ever had, and I've had a lot. Spicy tuna and shrimp tempura are a must. Bonito sashimi is a must. The food is very consistent, the service not so much. The female servers range from nice, to rude, to slow in service. If you have a party of more... More

This review is for the location in the Providence Place Food Court. The cooks made teriaki shrimp without the teriaki for my picky eater. It was great!! Thank you!

Bad service. This used to be our regular sushi place no questions asked but we are in search of another restaurant. A couple of the waitresses there are not happy people and seems as though the customer is a bother. We have had a couple of bad experiences with the unhappy wait staff thinking the first couple of times they... More
