My wife and I eat a lot of Japanese food, particularly ;Sashimi. We like our fish raw so almost always buy sashimi or sushi and we prefer to sit that the sushi bar so we can inspect the quality of the fish offerings in the chilled counter refrigerator. We regularly patronized this restaurant about 10 years ago and before while... More

Sakura was the first sushi restaurant in Hattiesburg. There have been many that have opened since but honestly, in my opinion, no other has surpassed it. Best Baked Salmon Roll and also the Hawaii Roll. Great sushi!

We went to Sakura based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We may have caught them on a bad night, but we found their tuna sashima to not be the greatest quality. It just tasted so-so. Not bad from a freshness standpoint, but just not even average in that melt in your mouth tuna goodness. We also had rolls, dumplings,... More

A great place to enjoy sushi, rolls & steaks. That's right their rib eye & New York strip(my favorite) come to the table sizzling in hot cast iron plate. If you like your steak medium, then order it medium rare. The steam vegetables and rice complement it well. Great eatery.

This is by far the best sushi restaurant I have eaten at. Biggest bang for your buck and always fresh. Baked Salmon, dynamite roll and everything is else is top notch.

I think this is the best sushi in Hattiesburg. The building is dated, but the creativity of the menu with Southern flavored items makes this place my "go-to" for sushi. They have the basics: steamed or fried gyoza, steamed edamame, Kirin and Sapporo, as well as the rainbow roll and baked salmon roll. The cajun roll is spicy with crawfish... More

I have eaten at Sakura's countless times, the food has ALWAYS been good, the service is a hit or miss. My friends and I have never had a complaint about the food, and that is why we have never complained, but we have had less than adequate service many times. Get the cindy roll, baked salmon roll, or the rock... More

I just love Sakura. It never seems too busy, and the rolls are great. Check out the dragon roll! The atmosphere is pretty great. I always feel like I am in some Tarantino movie.
