Took my sister in for a Birthday lunch and as usual we were delighted by the quality of the food and service.
Sakura is like the best place in the area for Sashimi and rolls and the first items we ordered were Fatty Tuna and Urchin, both superb.
Then, we ordered Vegetable Gyoza and the Boneless Honey Ribs both favorites of mine and both well prepared and very tasty.
Fo a final course we ordered Vegetable Tempura and a Volcano Roll both prepared to perfection and super flavorful.
I east at Sakura often and have never had a bad experience there.
Quite the contrary, I have always bee very happy and this is my GO TO Japanese restaurant!
If you are in town visiting or live in the area, you really have to try it, it'll become a favorite of yours as it is mine.

I have visited Sakura many times in the past and on this visit I brought my mother who's 85 and loves Thai food.
We ordered Gyoza and Boneless Honey Ribs as appetizers and both were excellent!

The Gyoza were crisp on the outside and tender, tasty pork stuffing on the inside.
The ribs were superb, super tender boneless strips of pork in an excellent BBQ sauce served over fresh sweet pineapple chunks, a must try if you haven't had them. I'll be ordering them again my next visit!

We then shared an order of Chicken Pad Thai, loaded with large chunks of tender chicken breast and vegetables over noodles in a truly sublime sauce, a squeeze of lime and really good!

If you are visiting the Hartford area or live nearby, this restaurant is a must try.
Everything I have ever ordered here has been expertly prepared, super flavors and an excellent value.
It also is a great place if you like Sashimi or rolls, likely the best in the area.

To close I would record this establishment highly and thank Sakura's staff for another memorable experience for my mother and I.

Very busy restaurant. We were seated shortly after our reservation time. It was a while before the waitress took our drink order and even longer before the food order. The chef is the star of the show and he was very entertaining. Food was tasty and filling. Everyone should experience this kind of restaurant at least once in there life!

Jason is amazing — he is one of the best hibachi chefs we’ve had and we frequent Asian steakhouses fairly often. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and he made sure to take care of us. The steak was great and was cooked exactly how I asked.

Very boring outdoor patio. Cheap furniture and no decor. Felt like I was eating in a cafeteria. Food was okay. Fresh but nothing really creative or special.

Since there are very few Teppanyaki restaurants in the area, we had moderate expectations. But our Hibachi chef (Leo) was really fun and talented and my family really enjoyed the experience. The food was on par with places like Benihana, but nowhere near the quality of a "real" Japanese restaurant; it was good. The star of this evening was the show that Leo delivered. Very fun experience!

Our fav place to eat for company, celebrations or just a night out. Ambience and service top notch. Fresh sushi in an extensive menu. We have a favorite server-Lek - who always remembers our food and drink preferences. Nice to have an ASIAN restaurant staffed by Asians. Have never had a bad meal. Only complaint is that parking can be limited.

Did Hibachi for the 4 of us for mother’s day. My children were very entertained by the “cowboy” chef who has truly remarkable cooking skills. Excellent food as well (between us we had the filet, chicken and lobster tail). Would highly recommend.

We've enjoyed multiple good dinners here but our last visit was more than disappointing. We waited excessively long for our chef...they kept sending him to the wrong table to people who came after us. This caused what should have been a 1 hour dinner to be over 2.5 hours. We were the LAST ones in the restaurant with an 8pm reservation. Also, incorrect and missing food items were prepared. Don't order the calamari....it came out in the shape of a frozen square pattie and was absolutely disgusting. Our other items ended up being overcooked. Chad tried to make the best of it and so did my party tried to make the best of it but it definitely was an unpleasant experience especially for a birthday celebration.
