I enjoyed my chicken teppenyaki meal from Sakura. Substantial meal and good flavour. I also ordered the green tea and it was excellent. If you are looking for change from typical Costa Rican food I recommend this restaurant.

Sakura is without a doubt the best Japanese restaurant in Costa Rica. The chefs put on a great show when using the teppanyaki tables. The food is amazing, as a local I can say that to me, this is by far the best Japanese restaurant...More

We tried two makis with crab and salmon and the gyozas were lovely! Our dessert was a fried ice cream, simply very good! The decoration is totally japanese. Lovely!

Lovely meal, great service and a fun teppanyaki experience with Diego. The place is quiet and beautifully decorated. They save parking spots at the Wyndham lot for Sakura customers.

I had dinner at Sakura while I was staying at Wyndham. The ambiance is nice and food also seemed ok; but the service definitely was slow. It could have been just by chance though, because our server never returned after serving our dishes. Eventually we...More
