Let me start off by saying that as soon as we walked in the door we wanted to leave. There was an overpowering musty/moldy smell that permeated the restaurant. I suspect the source of the moldy smell was the carpet in one section of the restaurant but even sitting on the non-carpeted side, the smell was awful. As to the... More

Went for lunch w/ Friends. Hadn't been in here ...ever! Restaurant has been open for years and the inside showed it - dark wood, dull with age. Our table (not Habachi table) was sticky as was the chair. Ordered Steak and rice. Came with salad and stir-fried veggies. Steak was tasty and as ordered, rice fluffy and veggies not over-cooked....

I visited Sakura with my husband and his little sister in July 2016. As hibachi places go, this was fairly ordinary. We were seated around the hibachi with two other families and placed our orders. A little while later, the hibachi chef came out and began preparing our orders. The food was tasty, if unexceptional. Fried rice, steak, shrimp, veggies,... More

I do not care for Sakura. I love teppanyake. But this place uses way too much oil and sesame seeds. The food tasted like oil. Their sushi is amazing though. The dinner prices are ridiculous. We go out to dinner a lot and are willing to pay if it's worth it. But this place is absurdly priced in my opinion.... More

While on vacation some of the family decided to dine here. Although it was okay it could have used more seasoning. I'm used to Miyabi back home so the standards are pretty high. Did not have much business but overall I enjoyed myself. Would I try it again? Yes but it would not be my first choice.

We go here every so often and my five year old loves it. She really enjoys watching then cook the food right in front of us and most of the chiefs interact with you as they cook and perform some tricks.

We had dinner here on a Sunday night. Did not make reservations but they only had a 10 minute wait. Service was friendly and quick. Chef was very entertaining. Plenty of food, we shared 3 meals (7 of us), and still had leftovers. Food was fresh, tasty. I think he overcooked the chicken since it was very dry, but the... More

This place is awesome. They cater to every everyone. My son is a vegetarian and I love that it is easy for him to get a vegetarian meal. They don't complain when we as for substitutions. We go at least once a month. Love it, Love it Love it!!!

A friend treated me to luncheon at this establishment. OMG, UNHEALTHY on every level! Fat and sodium laden, full of empty calories. I could not wait to exit this place. Lots of white rice, butter like substance, and soy sauce. NO, I will not visit this place again,
