The ramen tastes identical to the ten cent packages that one buys at the supermarket. I suggest actually trying the ramen at this restaurant for the sheer hilarity of having been so completely screwed. The sushi, however, was pretty good.

I just ordered some items from this restaurant for delivery. The delivery was fast but the food was crap. I got the vegetable teriyaki which was $10 for basically a small bowl of overcooked onions. A "greek" salad that is just iceburg lettuce and a couple of shavings from a carrot. WHY does this cost so much money? It was unappetizing. I will NEVER order from here again. Dont charge such outrageous prices for crappy tiny amounts of food.

I'm not sure if the sake special is still on, but the gyoza special definitely is. So basically, they give each table with an order of $25 (not including tax) a free order of vegetable gyoza. I'd say this deal is sweet. On the other hand, I think they did well with their new menu. Yaki udon is my personal fave. You should really check these guys out. I've been going at least once a week. If not, ordering. They deliver now!

I live about ten minutes from this place, and I really don't mind the walk. The food is rather good, and the atmosphere of the place is okay, too. It isn't the best Japanese restaurant I've ever been to, but nevertheless, it's a really good one. I buy lunch and dinner there a few times a month. The pricing is about right for a Japanese restaurant (maybe a little cheaper. Well, certain items are, anyways). The place really has a Japanese feel to it. And the mochi ice cream! Delish!

I live around the neighborhood and order from them often. I need to go pick it up, but it's a good walk. Besides, the food makes up for it. The rolls, soups, desserts, donkatsus, and a few other menus as well as the korean ones are all pretty awesome. Sakura is handy because it gives me a chance to eat something healthy aside from pizza, burgers, meat... you know what i mean. The people working there are very friendly and the place overall is tidy. Though i do wish they changed their theme of songs.. perhaps to calm, nature-talking ones?

Sakura replaced the ill-fated La Capannina (4th pizza joint in as many blocks) and straddles the produce market right outside the Graham L stop. It’s the only Japanese place in the immediate area, and it’s obvious - there is nothing outstanding or remotely unique about the place or the menu. Still, there are reasons to welcome it. Lunch is one. The quantity of food they serve in a bento box is berserk. A full order of shumai, 8 piece California roll, salad, rice and miso soup comes with whatever bento you order (salmon teriyaki, sushi, beef negimaki, tempura, etc) for $6.95. It's pre-economic decline bounty with prices stuck in the 1990’s. Even better, the food is better than the price tag or volume would seem to indicate. Everything is standard in a respectable way and few corners are cut. Some dinner prices are oddly prohibitive for this location and you don’t get a sword with your $17.95 udon soup, but overall the price is right. Though not uncommon, a few Korean options add variety. My main complaint is atmospheric. Unless they are purposely trying to keep people of quality out, the horrible club music has to go. What’s good for electroshock therapy is bad for digestion. On the upside, the staff just cannot wait to please and you get the feeling you could ask for anything, save top notch O-Toro or a sword.
