The food was cooked properly but the scallops were very small and over cooked. The waitress was very nice. The building needs some maintenance and cleaning.

Why pay the huge price to have someone grilling at your table and is usually not that personable and eat with people that you do not know. Meal is top quality and is served by delightful waitresses and waiters. Great atmosphere. Also plenty to eat for take-out. Should be considered for office parties- private dining areas. Ask for Glenn to... More

I think the most important thing I can say about Sakura is that we know what we are getting when we get their food. We always get the Hibachi Shrimp and/or beef. The shrimp and beef are always tender and the veggies have good flavor. The soup is nothing more then a bouillon and the salad is primarily lettuce, but... More

We are staying at the Roanoke hotel & conference center & drove out to Salem for this Japanese restaurant. I enjoyed my Valentine's night but sadly this would not be my pick for any future evenings. First impression; the decor was very tired (not dirty just not maintained for a vey long time). The service was good & quick (a... More

I have a tradition of celebrating Friday the thirteenth and my boyfriend and I picked this place this past Friday the thirteenth. It's a little hard for a handicap in a wheel chair to get in but, well worth it for the food. The staff was helpful and the food was excellent.

A relaxed atmosphere, the service is good and the food is very good. I especially like the steak and shrimp combo. Each meal includes soup, a salad and the main dish includes nice vegetables, rice and sauces. Very good value.

We chose this place for our one meal after reading the reviews. It was definitely not crowded! The food was very good and well presented. My husband and I shared a dish with three proteins and it was more than enough for the two of us. But make sure you tip as if you had gotten two meals! Go ahead... More

The fish is so fresh and healthy. You can sit at the sushi bar. If you take in a page from Google of Japanese words, you will be disappointed. The sushi chef, cashier and waitress are Chinese. Knee how. Shay, shay. Hello. Thank you.

This is Japanese teppanyaki style food without the drama of the show. Just good food. No one sitting at your table that you don't know. No flying shrimp. No onion Volcanos no clanging and banging of spatulas and knives. The decor could stand to be updated , and the chairs are not the most comfortable but again consistently great food.... More

My friend has a limited amount of time for lunch so I called ahead and the gentleman who answered the phone was very concerned about the quality of the food and whether or not it would be hot when we arrived. Little did he need to worry. This was my first time there and my first impression was that they... More
