This used to be my favorite Asian restaurant. So sad to see it closed. I have been going there since I have lived in Destin and it never disappointed. No one knows why they closed so abruptly.

Terrible non traditional Oriental food and poor service. Food is not prepared the same here that you will find in traditional Oriental restaurants. Fillers such as onions and carrots are used instead of Brocolli, mushrooms, water chestnuts or flat snap peas. The Wonton soup tastes like soapy onion soup. Complaints about the food are dismissed by a laugh from the... More

Many others have come and gone, but Sakura's is still here in the heart of town. There sushi is fresh and not as costly as many others. Localy owned the same people have worked there for as long as I can remember. The menu has all the favorites, and they can handle any spice level. We always look forward to... More

Hate to see negative reviews for this place because of how long they've been around. Wonderful flavors and smells to be had here people. Best Sukiyaki, hands down, for the panhandle. The sushi is, of all the oriental eateries I've seen come and go, still delicious and economically superb. Just about every entree is served with a egg drop soup... More

I usually get take out here. I order the same thing every time, veggie fried rice with hot and sour soup. The veggie rice is loaded with vegetables, it isn't your typical peas & carrots thing. There are mushrooms, broccoli, cabbage, baby corn, snow peas, carrots, egg and a few other things. Very good. The hot and sour soup is... More

I've been in this kitchen - BAD. Just like EVERY asian kitchen I've been in. My wife slipped and fell on wet tile floor. She had to insist for a bag of ice from the waitress. Then, the owner comes out and chastises her for falling - "You stay on carpet". Any lawyers want a case ? The food is... More

Good Sushi and pricing to match. Nicely decorated and very pleasing to the eye. Rolls were prepared to perfection and fresh. The chef even made us some special rolls not on the menu to try (on our first visit). There was one reviewer that said it was "terrible Chinese food" ... Sakura serves Japanese entrees/food. If you want sushi, go... More

Never in my life have I had such terrible Chinese food. We got a carry out which was missing a soup order. The egg rolls were about 1/3 the size I'm used to and tasted like old grease. The rice portions wouldn't feed a small child. To top it off my daughter threw up in the middle of the night.... More

We have been going there for years, and it used to be one of our favorite quick dine and take out restaurants, but no more. The last three or four times we have gone service has been awful, take out orders have been wrong and difficult to correct ( it's like pulling teeth to get sweet and sour sauce for... More

Sakura has good food, fresh sushi (try the Volcano and Tam's spicy roll) and a relaxed atmosphere that welcomes kids and beach clothing. Has a great takeout business too. Located in the shopping center west of Main St along with Callahan's and Pepitos, 2 other good family restaurants that won't break the budget. Next to Old Time Pottery which has... More
