Two couples went. Seated with strangers around a grilling table. Chef attempted to look flashy. Big flash of fire. Ultimately, tossed some small pieces of food at customers to have them catch the food in their mouths. If you are into that, fine. But, the whole thing was just average.

My colleague and I ordered a scallops and a steak/shrimp lunch seated at the grill. WE were able to get our business done before the chef came over to prepare our meal and entertain us as expected from a teppanyaki style restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious, the show well done and the value was good.

It improved as time went on. I've had teppanyaki many times and this was a good example. The only complaint on the food was that the miso soup was thin. Then they forgot our order and the starters came after the main. But the main issue was the wait. They told us that there was a 15 minute wait so... More

Food was good although disjointed its timing. Appetizers were served with part of the main course, and the remainder of the main course served when we were finished with the rice and veggies. Food was very good though, and our chef deserves credit for his preparation. I'm not a big fan of Japanese steakhouse table arrangements. We sat with 5... More

This is a Hibachi/Teppanyaki restaurant meaning that the food is cooked in front of you as you sit around a huge hotplate and is very much a show as well as a fun dining experience. The food here was excellent, melt in the mouth steak, generous helpings of prawns/shrimp, tasty fried rice, plenty of stir fried vegetables and lots more.... More

Our family ate here this evening, and most of us enjoyed the usual steakhouse show routine and food. However, when we inquired, we were told that there was no way to prepare the steakhouse dinner gluten free, because of all the soy sauce they use. (Other Japanese Steakhouses have prepared our GF meal ahead of the others, on a little... More

What kid does not like going to a place like this. But this is not your average Japanese steakhouse. The menu options are greater than most for food to be cooked on the grill. I had never had a rib eye in a Japanese steakhouse so I made sure to order it. It was great. Everyone at the table enjoyed... More

Sakura is a favorite spot for our family to grab an early and entertaining dinner. The food is very good, but the table-side preparation of the meal makes it a special treat. My daughter loved the onion volcano during the food preparation. I recommend the fried rice - not healthy, but delicious!! Go early - the wait can get significant... More
