There's nothing quite like Sakura in Southsea. The food is plentiful (despite the utterly confusing menu), the staff are lovely (especially the "lady boss", as the waiters call the owner), and the bill is always smaller than expected. Very busy, mildly chaotic, and certainly quirky - it's a hell of a place, and somewhere I return to regularly.

What a great little place. Staff so so friendly, we arrived 30 mins early misjudging traffic and they still sat us no problem. They apologised about food may take longer than usual but it did not take long at all and even so, my dear was it worth the wait, I have never had sushi like that, so amazing and... More

Had a really good time. I have never tried Japanese food from a proper dedicated restaurant before (Only ever had it from supermarket or home made), and it was all really good. I booked my table a week or so in advance, and was advised there was already a very large table booked for the same night. I was a... More

I'm not a huge fan of Japanese food but I must say I found each dish I ordered very nice. I personally think that it's better then Wagamama but everyone has there personal tastes

First time here and was thoroughly impressed. Immediately disarming atmosphere, very laid back. Had a really enjoyable and fun meal and there was only 2 of us. The sushi was fantastic, service super speedy and the staff were really attentive and charming. We will be back!

4 of us found this last night quite by accident, we thought we'd entered a Chinese Restaurant! (In our defence we'd rushed in from a filthy night outside). We were warmly greeted and though we hadn't booked they quickly cleared a booth for us while we had a quick look at the menu, this is when we realised we were... More

I'm a regular at Sakura. The food is always very fresh, generously portioned and tasty. Its quite a small restaurant and so booking is advised, but if you miss out on a table they also do takeaway.
