Pros: Fresh

Cons: Crowded

Ironically enough, Sakura Japanese Restaurant is across the street from my favorite bakery (Angel Maid). The sushi is out of this world and that is coming from an avid sushi eater. If you were going to get fish any fresher you?d have to

Pros: Everything one can think of

Cons: Parking and sometimes the wait

This small, always crowded restaurant is worth all the waiting. The food is delicious!! I always love to order fried calamari as an appetizer. The sushi is yummy and the slice of fish is huge like it's supposed to be.

This is a small restaurant with good, affordable Japanese food.
The staff is very friendly, but the wait to be seated is sometimes lengthy. Once you're in, the experience is pleasant and service is good. Great food for the value.

Cannot beat their prices and freshness of their sushi. They have a nice range of other traditional Japanese dishes if you are not into the raw stuff.

The place is small and the parking is worse, so you need to make sure you go when they first open or be ready to wait.

Friendly service, great sushi, reasonable price - this place is great. Because it's great, you will have to wait for a table. Believe me it's worth it for real, delicious food.

Pieces are big and the quality is PRIME. I've been in more expensive and fancier places, they could have some resemblance but then you have to pay a lot. If food is great it doesn't hurt that much but Sakura is top quality AND reasonable

After seeing lines of people trying to get into this place every time I drove by, I decided to try it. The portions are the largest I have seen. The size of the eel was huge. I thought the other review that said it was too much eel and

Pros: value, quality sushi

I'm quite selective about sushi, but Sakura has, by far, the best sushi on the westside. It's a neighborhood restaurant where locals know the owners by name, as well as the comical sushi chefs (Harry!). It is ALWAYS crowded, but for a few

If you're a true sushi lover then you'll enjoy the food here. There's not much to ambience but the albacore just melts in your mouth. I finally found a place that doesn't sear their albacore without it tasting fishy. And the pieces are

From seeing the crowd around the restaurant, I thought it would definitely be something that I must try. The food is good, but I think sushi can be better. I would call it more of a Japanese restaurant instead of a sushi joint. Their sushi
