The food and the service were good. Good selection of food items. The sauce was good but wished they have more than one type of sauces. The place was very smokey; they should consider installing better ventilation system. It was a little expensive for the type of food you get.

We love Sakura House. The staff is great. The food is splendid. You can sit at the bar (like a sushi bar) or at a table. The food is made right behind the counter/bar area. It is all served on sticks. It is Japanese fare and so tasty. There is something for everyone, from meat lovers to vegans.They grill the... More

My husband and I dined at Sakura House for the first time. Many of the dishes we had were delicious and interesting. The restaurant is on the small side, located in a strip mall in Marina del Rey. They have tables as well as counter seating where you can order skewers. The menu consists mainly of skewers and Japanese tapas.... More

I have been eating at this wonderful restaurant for almost 30 years, that should really say it all! Tasty morsels of meat, chicken and vegetables wrapped in wafer thin pork, cooked over imported Japanese charcoal. Excellent and such an authentic example of kushiaki cooking.

We thoroughly enjoy our meals at Sakura House. Similar to a sushi bar you can choose a table or the bar. At the bar, rather than looking thru glass to see all of the fish, instead you see the different types of skewered items they will cook for you over an extremely hot grill. If you like bacon then you... More

I'd cased the joint many times, but decided to come in for an early dinner with the fam (including the 2 month old in a stroller). Now this is strictly a dinner place, with a nice drink selection and it specializes in grilled meats (but had plenty for the vegetarian in the group. The cost was in the $25 per... More

When you want to step back into old Japan with a modern vibe, to spend 90 minutes savoring freshly cooked kushiyaki-yakitori both plain and maki (thin bacon wrapped), we find Sakura to be our choice. Vegetables, beef, seafood, Try the sweet corn maki or sweet corn wrapped in thinly sliced bacon, grilled to perfection. All parts of the chicken with... More

I am always leery of restaurants in strip malls but my leeriness dissolved once I started eating all these different types of skewers you can order at Sakura House. I visited Sakura house long enough ago to forget most of what I had but their menu is full of variety. The Okra Skewer with pork option is very intriguing and... More
