Dined here a couple of times; the food was decent both times but didn't get to try sushi. The decor is simple; the service was very good.

Recently visited whilst on a business trip. Decided to visit on the spur of the moment and was not disappointed. The service and food was very good and there was a constant stream of customers throughout the evening. Would recommend and return.

Generally good Japanese food. Excellent service and friendly staff. The ramen is undewhelming, but the sushi and sashimi are great

This place was cute and I had delicious tempura and some other tasty vegetarian items. The female owner stopped by to talk a little about her background and training (and help under order in English!) she was so friendly and kind and has set up a great restaurant in UB.

The Sakura is a well established Japanese restaurant on the second floor of the Kempinski Khan Palace Hotel. The food is always very good and the service very friendly and responsive.
