Great sushi coming from NYC and having access to the best sushi on earth this place does excellent sushi and good service
This is the second time I've written a review for Sakura, for some reason my reviews keep disappearing after a year or so. Anyway, this is a surprising and refreshingly good restaurant that would find itself at home in any major city. Surprising for the quality, variety and subtle sophisticated recipes that you just don't expert to find in a town in the middle of the Midwest Four corners area. Although the owner and chef is Korean, the dishes are focused on Japanese themes with a nice menu of sushi, cooked and traditional, well prepared and presented like works of art. Bento box style meals where you pick and choose items and Japanese grilled entrees and other traditional dishes. The appetizer miso soup served with nearly all meals reminds me of miso I had in various places in Tokyo, in essence authentic. There is a small Asian ginger salad which is also included, basic but a great dressing. One of my favorite dishes is the grilled short ribs, although clearly a unique style of flavors that remind me of Sukiyaki a traditional Japanese dish and several other recipes also remind me of this Japanese staple. That works because Sukiyaki is not a specific standard recipe, its more about putting a variety of fresh vegetables and meats and cooking them together in a broth either yourself or by a server table side. The short ribs are rich and will remind you of great grilling or BBQ with a more Teriyaki style and a bit of saltiness and sweetness. Everything we have tired which is about half the menu has been great and again surprising. This is not a Benny Hanna, it's not a Japanese entertainment grill. Its a more romantic Asian themed sit down restaurant. It's worthwhile t call for reservations as they can get busy. They do take-out but I recommend eating there. The Sushi dishes are always fresh and generous and so good that several members of my family or other guests out with us who say they don't like Sushi or have never tried it were surprised how much they like it! Right now it seems staff is a little on the light side and that may be because of social distancing but the wait time is a bit longer than in the past. Also I'd think twice about bring small kids, they would be welcome I'm sure but its not a big place and there are only a couple of tables for larger groups or families. This is a great place for date night as a couple or foursome. Larger groups are accommodated but it could take longer for service and since its more adult focused to me anyway, other guests may frown on noisy kids who struggle to stay at the table for the longer wait. There is also a small bar but I don't drink so I can't really say if its a good bar or not. We have always had good, again if somewhat slow on certain visits but of the dozen or more times we have gone in we are always pleased with the food and quality of service. If he has time the Woner may come around and check on you as well which is always nice and he clearly cares that you are happy and satisfied.
Great food and atmosphere. The only place in town my fiance prefers to get sushi. On our most recent visit our waitress did not check on our table very often I set with an empty drink glass for most of our meal. But we were eating within an hour of close so not holding that against them. Always good food and a place we will return to frequently.
