Pros: food

Cons: long waits

My husband and I used to go to Sakura quite often for the great sushi they serve there. We did a reservation for my husband's birthday, and the host told us it didn't matter that we had reservations, we couldn't be seated at the time. The host was very rude to me when I tried to explain that we did a reservation for a reason, to not wait 50 minutes to be seated. They do have great food, small but good, but it's not worth to us anymore. We discovered other great sushi places, and with friendlier stuff.

I'm a big sushi enthusiast and I must say.... the sushi here is great!!!! even better than a lot of the sushi places I have been to in Chicago. The place is always busy because the food is wonderful, but the seating does not take too long and the people who work there are very friendly, so you really don't mind the wait!!! I definitely go back to this place because I always end up getting a craving for it!!!

Cons: there are really no cons to this place.....

Sakura is hands down my favorite sushi restaurant ever. I even prefer it to Nobu in New York and Las Vegas. The rolls are wonderful - my personal favorite is the soft shell crab roll. It's best to go with a group of people so you can order a wide variety of sushi and be able to try more things. They are always busy, so if you go on a Friday or Saturday night expect a long wait. It will be worth it.

PROS: best sushi, fresh, friendly service
CONS: long wait

As a East Coaster who has come to the Midwest really good sushi is hard to find here due to the lack of fresh fish. However Sakura has some of the best sushi I have ever had. I go here once a week with a friend of mine & we love the food. From the appetizers, to the salad, soup & sushi it is all great. However they are extremely busy. We have gone as soon as they have opened and there have been people waiting in their cars to get in. Even if you are going during the week you better make reservations. The service is not horrible but it is not great. It is easy to lose your waitress in this busy place. Parking is also hard to find.

My boyfriend and I have been going to this restaurant for 10 years. Within the past few years, the sushi trend has made this a popular spot that has been to overrun with "tourists" (non-Japanese regulars). The atmosphere is fairly close to what you'd see in a real Japanese restaurant, but, the service is horrible - you rarely see your waitress. And don't bother ordering anything BUT sushi if you sit at the sushi bar. The sushi-chefs are friendly, but everyone else ruins the experience. The sushi is small compared to other places, and the chicken teriyaki is all dark meat. We've been there when they close at 9:30, at 9pm, and gotten nothing but cold food (and we don't mean fresh sushi!). Quite a disappointment.

Definantely make reservations. When we arrived the place was packed. Parking is scarce as well. They did accomdate us by creating a table in the corner for my spouse and me. The wait staff was friendly enough, but we rarely saw them. It took 30minutes for us to get our appetizers, and another 20 minutes to get our dinner. Overall the sushi tasted fresh, and they had one of the best soft shell crab rolls we've tasted. It's worth a look in you live close (15minutes), but not worth the drive if coming from a little farther.

Great ambience, good service, tasty sushi. Arrive early on the weekend evenings or you will have to wait. Make reservations if you can.

Sakura is the perfect stop for sushi lovers. With choices like the Gabe Roll, California Rolls and Shrimp Tempura, it is often difficult to decide on just one. Their appetizers are simply divine and pleasantly affordable. And for those who scare at thought of rare fish, Sakura offers many delightful noodle based meals and chicken terikyi dishes and boxes. Located on Keystone, this restaurant is a great spot to dine with friends or family on authentic japanese cuisine.

I've been to Japan and I have to say this place is one of the best I've been to in the states. Great Sushi. Don't let the outside apearence of this place fool you. It's really good. It is very authentic, and offers a great variety. I've found though that their food is much tastier at the start of the day around 5:00, however it is still good at night.

There's a reason that Indianapolis Monthly keeps rating Sakura as having the best Japanese food in Indianapolis!

You had better make reservations on the weekends though, it gets REALLY crowded, the reason that the atmosphere rating is not so high.

While you're near Sakura, check out their supermarket around the corner, Sakura Mart. Great place for Japanese imports - from rice and ramen to knick Knacks and mochi.

Editorial from

Housed in a former pizza joint, this unpretentious Japanese restaurant draws the crowds for its high-quality, fresh yellowtail, mackerel, sweet shrimp, ahi and seasonal favorites. The maki rolls are authentic rather than trendy and often…
