Had dinner with a few friends in Sakura last week and it was excellent. The quality matched their price perfectly. They can teach their staff a bit more about wine and serving it. But got nothing to complain about the food!

You have to try this restaurant. I know, you're not generally going to Malta for the Sushi, but if you love Japanese foo you've gotta do it. The staff were lovely and well trained... It's pleasing to see that the art of taking an order...More
