went here for lunch (group of 5), pretty good food & service, not great, not bad.
friendly staff, but food was average, just another sushi restaurant.
like there aren't other sushi options in Roseville.

We live fairly close to Sakura and eat here fairly regularly. We've never had a problem with the food or the service. The atmosphere is nice also. They have some unique rolls.

This restaurant had only one family in it when we arrived. We were greeted immediately but it started to go downhill from there. About about more diners did come in and two take out customers. This should not have taxed their kitchen but it did. We waited a long time for the soup which had little flavor. We then waited a long time for our lunch which also had little flavor, like a weak teriyaki sauce, a little overdone salmon, etc. The couple next to us waited even longer for their food and were then served a tough piece of a breaded chicken breast and were told there was no replacement available. The take out customers had to wait a long time for their orders. Out of sync? Was this unusual for this restaurant? I don't know and probably won't return to find out.

Situated in a shopping area on a busy through highway so quiet for a Saturday lunch meal.
Food was authentic and fairly tasty, good service and not bad value.
You can get better sushi elsewhere if you want, but expect to pay a lot more $$$.
Would go again.

Sakura has a very nice interior that is comfortable and pleasing, and service is professional and friendly. However, their food suffers from some critical flaws. The most consistently good dishes are sushi and sashimi, which are always fresh and delicious. Cooked food, however, is the problem.

On a recent visit, my companion had a noodle dish that was supposed to contain chicken. The noodles were rather dry and the sauce lacked flavor, but the biggest issue was the chicken. It appeared to have been cooked separately and then mixed in, giving little chicken flavor to the dish, and the chicken little of the sauce flavor.

I had a bento box, and I must warn you not to order gyoza from this place. They are fried and more like a pot sticker, if a pot sticker were cooked until it was dry, and if said pot sticker had no flavor. The salmon teriyaki was delicious and cooked to perfection (meaning cooked to medium and still juicy and tender.) The best thing in the box was the sushi roll, which was perfection.

Diners should stick to the sushi and sashimi, although I plan to try more of the teriyaki as well based on how good the salmon was.
