Sakura is a good place. Yet, I have had fresher sushi & sashimi. The staff is always friendly. and the chef is great to watch make the sushi creations.

We love this place. You get a warm washcloth and cucumber salad shortly after arrival. They have the best miso soup. We have the Pink Sakura roll every time we eat there (which is at least once a month). It's not on the regular menu anymore, but usually on the specials menu. We've never had any problems ordering it even... More

The restaurant is really quite beautiful. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. I've gotten take-out too. The fish is still really fresh.

They weren't that busy but it still seemed like it took forever to get our food. On the plus side the food was very good. On the minus side, it was not very inspiring. The atmosphere of the place seem to want to direct you to order takeout instead of putting the staff through having to serve you. Almost like... More

This place was one of our favirote sushi places but over the last few visits it has dwindled. It was crowded so we sat at the side bar, big mistake as we were lost in neverland. Very slow service if not forgotten at times. The waitresses seem to speak English very little and it's hard to understand them or get... More

Warm towels arrived quickly. The menu is big with lots of variety of raw, cooked and vegetarian sushi as well as noodle and rice dishes and tempura and teriyaki. It's all very fresh and served quickly. My issue was we were given the bill WHILE we were STILL eating and were not even asked if we cared for anything more.... More

This asian restaurant on Shore Dr., in Virginia Beach, is a nice place to eat sushi. The service is very good, and the food comes out quickly. Two complimentary pieces of sushi are placed on the table with sweetened cucumber slices. I liked the warm moist wash cloth at the beginning of the meal. I had the miso soup (good),... More

Quick service, good food, clean establishment. IMO the special sunomono with the mountain of delicious cucumber is outstanding. The menu is large and varied. Not inexpensive, but fairly priced. Well worth our once a month visit.
