My wife and I stayed at the Doubletree Hotel and this restaurant is in the same building as the hotel. We made a reservation (done in half hour intervals) for teppanyaki. Our chef (Scout) was entertaining and fun. The food was delicious. The filet mignon was particularly good. We would definitely eat here again when we are in Flagstaff.

Our chef, Eddie, was convivial and dexterous; he told us stories and charmed us. The food was good enough. I enjoyed the shrimp, but the grilled vegetables (onions, zucchini and sprouts) left me longing for broccoli and peppers. The garlic... More

I just took my mother and father to Sakura to celebrate my mother's birthday. Chef Gene was awesome. We had shrimp, scallops, steak, and fried rice. All were amazingly well made. My father commented it was the best steak he ever had, and we have been to many steak houses that were far more expensive. Sakura is truly one of... More

My overall experience at Sakura was fantastic! The service was very professional and I would definitely come here again. My reason for this posting is that Scout needs to be rewarded for his great costumer service. He was interactive with the child that was at our table and made all of us feel welcoming. He developed conversations with us and... More
