Our first time in this restaurant. The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic, the decorations beautiful, the lighting is just right. I've ordered the Lobster/Steak combo and my GF had Yaki Soba to remind her of her years in Japan. With 3 appetizers, 2 soups,...2 types of pasta and rice, the grand total of all taste profiles reached 15. About 8 of them (for me) were brand new. This was an exceptional culinary experience and by a very, very long shot the best in Grand Forks. I didn't even had a chance to try their sushi, but I will certainly rectify that in a very near future.More

Pre-Valentine’s Day “warmer upper” with a late lunch, or early supper, at Sakura on a spring-like Saturday in February with my wife! Loved it! Delicious food! Attentive service! We have every reason to come back! Rolls of choice today were the Shaggy Dog, the Volcano...Roll, Philadelphia Roll, Spicy Yellowtail, and a California Roll. We also enjoyed hot green tea and a bottle of warm sake. Nice! It was a good day.More

Service and Food was Solid Tonight! I decided to sit at the bar and take in everything going on around me. I was surprised that there were still a lot of people out eating after 8pm. Everyone seemed content and comfortable. The table talk was...was light. The bartender took care of me this evening. Great guy! Personable! Appreciated his help! My order came up quickly. I ordered three sushi rolls, the Phoenix, the California, and the Yellowtail. I was very happy with all three. My time here this evening was time well spent, and time enjoyed. Happy to be back!More

Great first impression; a server was at the host stand; and greeted me warmly; and let me know that she would grab the host quickly. The host was there quickly, with another warm greeting and showed me to a table, making sure it was acceptable...for me. Server came after just enough time for me to choose a drink and appetizer. Very friendly, all smiles and very polite. Ordered edamame to start. Beer is all bottled or canned, provided with a frosted mug. Get the Sapporo or Kirin Ichiban… it’s Japanese cuisine! Food all came timely; ordered a Sushi Deluxe (8 pieces with choice of California or Spicy Tuna roll), and a side of vegetable tempura. Came with 4 types of fish, all delicious and tender. Food was great. Savored all of it Environment is nice; there’s some ceiling high bamboo, private high booths, spacious walking area, and intimate lighting. All in all, a great experience with nothing at all to complain about.More

We had excellent service and a tasty meal at Sakura! The restaurant was pretty well packed when we walked in, yet we were quickly seated. Our beverages arrived shortly after our order, and our meal came out quickly as well. My wife and I were...able to relax and enjoy our time here for supper. So happy to be back. It’s been quite a while. Our server, Mycke, was very pleasant. Our order tonight consisted of Bubble Tea(Taro), Hot Green Tea, Hot Saki, Miso Soup, the Shaggy Dog Roll, the Alaska Roll, and Chicken Fried Rice. Before tip, it was $44.59.More

Our party of four were looking for a place to grab a couple of drinks and maybe an appetizer before the Kiss concert. We walked out of the parking lot of our hotel and stepped right into the bar of this Japanese restaurant. There was...plenty of room at the bar, so we took our seat at an open table. Everything started great. We ordered drinks. They came quickly and they were awesome. The nightly special was fresh and light and exactly what I was looking for before a long night of concert beer drinking. We ordered sushi and appetizers. They came quickly and they were awesome. Our waitress was efficient and playful. We were having a great time. We continued to order rounds and each couple decided to split an entree. We were having such a good time we didn’t want to leave. We still had time before the concert and we were in no hurry. Our entrees were great. Suddenly our waitress appeared with the check. I handed the check back to her and said we would like another round. After all, we thought we were in a bar. There was no one waiting line up front to be seated. Our waitress returned with our drinks and slammed them on the table. She was visibly upset. I had no idea what we had done. We finished our drinks, paid our bill and moved up to the bar stools and ordered another round. Our bartender was so sweet to us. We enjoyed our last round. They didn’t fill our vacated “bar” table right away. What should have been an awesome review turned into a disappointing experience and a question. What happened? Is it something we did? Why couldn’t our waitress communicate with us instead of having a meltdown? I looked back at other reviews. There was other mentions of rudeness by employees. This restaurant has so much potential. Please be nice to your customers.More

Went with my family on Valentine’s Day. We had a great meal! Everything was done perfectly and I loved the Sushi special they had that day. I had the scallops and they were large and cooked perfectly. A couple people had the steak and shrimp...and that was done perfectly also. Our waiter and chef were both very friendly.More

The food was OK, typical sushi restaurant in the northern part of the country. Service wasn’t that great though. The waitress gave me a few dirty looks during my visit and I was charged too much. Probably won’t be back.

Like many of the Shogun, Tokyo steakhouse. entertainment is all about equal and starting to be stale as nothing ever new. For food quality it was very good. Service excellent. Only drawback is having to wait while they fill a table before starting to cook....Otherwise was very pleased.More
