Yummy food ... and I go at least monthly or more often. Consistently good food. In fact, I have never once had a "bad" experience in this restaurant. Every server does a great job. The shiitake mushrooms are a "YES"; the steamed gyoza is my favorite.

The service here is outstanding and I love the decor. The food is fine, but nothing extraordinary. I found the sushi that I had (California roll and bagel roll) was fairly tasteless. The miso soup was good, the salad dressing was not a favorite, the tempura was okay, and the chicken teriyaki was pretty good. For the price and based... More

Sakura Bana was the first sushi bar in Jackson. It has remained consistently good and continues to be my favorite. The atmosphere is OK...nothing fancy. Be sure to try the Night Special, Blue Crab roll and the Caterpillar Roll.

Far and away the best in JXN and MS. That doesn't sound like much right..sushi in MS.?!? Sakura Bana is a hidden gem, it would be a GO TO in any city. I have enjoyed sushi at high end Japanese restaurants from CA to NY, Sakura Bana is the real deal. Longtime owners are Japanese and the Nissan plant is... More

I had eaten at this place when it was called Little Tokyo about two decades ago. I was in Jackson and decided to eat again to bring back some good memories. It was good but wasn't as fantastic as it once was. I went simple with Beef Teriyaki/Tempora Bento Box, California rolls, Squid Sushi, and yakitori. The rice was dryer... More

Sure miss that Tommy-sahn yelling out your name when you walked through the door with his great smile and welcome! But the food is still almost as good. A great place for sushi in Jackson, although there are several places. The service is always excellent, and I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. Great servers! Love the... More

We have been going to Sakura Bana since before it changed it name from Little Tokyo. This is our favorite Japanese restaurant in Jackson. They have a good wait staff, and the food is always excellent. We started coming here before we were married with kids, and continue to dine-in with the whole family. The atmosphere is unpredictable, and you... More

For 30 years I have been eating sushi in New York, London, Miami, Key West, Nassau, Atlanta, Seattle, San Diego and many, many other places. You simply cannot get any better than Sakura Bana! The chefs will make any creation you can dream up, and if you come up with a winner they'll name the roll after you and put... More

I love to visit Sakura Bana at least once every time I come back to Jackson, MS from Sevierville, TN. I have not found a Japanese restaurant like it in the Sevierville area. I love the non-teppan choice. I love the beef teriyaki and tempura lunch box. I wish I could buy a bottle or two of the salad dressing... More
