The food is very good, service is quite good and the restaurant ambience is decent. Price is a bit steep for most of the seafood but quite fresh and tasty. The discount card is worth a buy if you plan to visit even every three months.

One of the best Japanese places out there. My usual order consist of : Volcano maki, manayer maki, raed maki, caterpillar maki, zahra maki,salmon tepanyaki, negimyaki, ichiban chicken(sweet sauce) the crab avocado salad is to die for👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 i cant handle 🌶 so i usually order it non spicy. Its a bit over priced though. They have home delivery too👍🏼

One of my favorite sushi restaurants in Kuwait. Convenient location. Generous buffet and good deal for money.

Great Japanese food here. Their other branches are ok but this is the best. They have tatami rooms, also. Somewhat spendy... but very good overall. Their set menus are a great deal.

This review pertains to Sakura at 360 Mall, despite the fact that this mall has the best food court and dining areas amongst all the malls in Kuwait, the decoration is out of date and the chairs are old, dirty and not comfortable, this is compensated by a good food and services

We sat outside and I was with a local Kuwaitee and so this seemed to facilitate things. Setting outside was nice but a little noisy as it is close to the main Arabian street. Sushi platter was great and the volcano salad was very good. Service was attentive.

Knowing Sakura, we usually avoid eating in the restaurant due to the setup of the restaurant. Something about the ambiance of the decor just doesn't speak luxury. I'm glad they finally serve imported bottled water. The menu gave us hope that the food has improved, but I don't feel it has.

Sakura is a pioneer in introducing Japanese cuisine in Kuwait for more than 20 years. Sakura is the Japanese term for flowering cherry trees that produce beautiful cherry blossoms for a short time each spring. I have not been dining here for over 10 years and I am back now for an authentic Japanese experience. The staff at 360 mall... More

We came here as a family twice, and in both visits, the food have always been consistently excellent in terms of taste, even the presentation of food is superb. Highly recommedable is the crunchy maki, never fails. This restaurant is one of the restaurants you can really recommend. Service is good too, however, in one occassion, we were made to... More
