A great place to stop and have some sushi (as well as some hot Chinese dishes); everything is rather basic, but the choices are there and the flavors are not bad. For the price, it's a very good deal. The dining area is huge (a bit dark, though, unless you sit by the windows) so you won't feel crowded. You... More

I just go here for the sushi rolls, they're delicious. Everything else is your typical buffet food. A lot more good sushi than other food options.

Wide selection of sushi and some sashimi as well. Hibachi included if your interested. Temperature of food seemed correct unlike a couple other places in the area. Just around. The corner from the mall area and seating was available with no issue. Second time coming here and will be back. Can't complain about the variety of food available all looking... More

Several members of our family have been here many times since they opened. I love the name Sakura as I once lived in a Japanese town with that name. After living in Japan twice and growing up with a Japanese parent, I tend to scrutinize any place that claims 'Japanese.' Although the staff is not Japanese, they have faithfully decorated... More

Sakura has plenty of Japanese food options for a fair price. It is located on a convenient spot on New Haven Av. close to everything. A good option for fast lunch with decent quality.

The food was awful, it tasted as though it had been sitting for a while, it was luke warm at best and it was the same boring, expected, nasty, greasy, Chinese/quasi Japanese food imaginable . We will never go back. Could not wait to get home and brush my teeth. There are a few great Asian restaurants in Melbourne. This... More

The Ginger Lobster is great and flavorful. The selection of sushi is not just your typical fare. The oysters were big and fresh covered in ice. We drove from Orlando to eat here and would do so again.
