Great in general; we chose to eat outdoors which was very noisy with traffic. Recommend eating inside the restaurant for a more relaxing meal.

While we have been to Sakura before, this trip was a bit disappointing. I had reservations but the gentleman at the counter took the people behind me and cashed out their take out order before seating me. The waitress, Pamela was pleasant but across from us they were packing take out orders (in the dining room). The steak was not good (overcooked) and we were shocked by the price increase when we received the bill. May not go back.

It was quite a fun time dining at Sakura Garden. I love the whole hibachi experience, it never gets old for me. I noticed everyone seated around us was having as much of a good time as we were! The food is top quality and they're very generous with the amount they serve you as well. Can't wait to go there again.

The grill chef kept putting the dirty grill water on the table next to my food. He also kept putting all the cooking materials next to my plate instead of using the cart.

If you want sushi its pretty good. For sit down dining there’s nothing special, especially if you actually want Japanese style cooking. I was hoping for pork tonkatsu but there was nothing like it on the menu. I settled for their Amazing Chicken, and it turned out to be General Tsao’s chicken without any veggies - and overcooked to boot.

On the bright side the staff was very helpful and friendly and made our visit a pleasant experience- in spite of the food.

Great for a family dinner out although it was Valentine’s Day so I think that was why the hibachi experience was a bit rushed.

The chef came out as soon as our order was placed to start cooking for us. They are also only allowing people to sit with their own party at the hibachi table. It was a great time.

Ambience is great due to area but due to the area the food was bland and not well seasoned . The service was horrible, our waitress took very long Overall , did not know how to use a visa gift card and was just not great. The chef did not even put on a show. If you have food allergies or sensitivity do not eat here , the chef was advised of an allergy and he simply wiped the knife with kitchen towel.

We wanted to like it because it’s such a pretty restaurant but it was not worth the money .

I understand restaurants are going through difficult times, and so I hate to say anything negative, but I must. Service was great, food was not, and after I got home I became violently ill. Like nothing I’ve ever experienced. So needless to say, I can’t ever go back.

Took my sister in for a Birthday lunch and as usual we were delighted by the quality of the food and service.
Sakura is like the best place in the area for Sashimi and rolls and the first items we ordered were Fatty Tuna and Urchin, both superb.
Then, we ordered Vegetable Gyoza and the Boneless Honey Ribs both favorites of mine and both well prepared and very tasty.
Fo a final course we ordered Vegetable Tempura and a Volcano Roll both prepared to perfection and super flavorful.
I east at Sakura often and have never had a bad experience there.
Quite the contrary, I have always bee very happy and this is my GO TO Japanese restaurant!
If you are in town visiting or live in the area, you really have to try it, it'll become a favorite of yours as it is mine.

I have visited Sakura many times in the past and on this visit I brought my mother who's 85 and loves Thai food.
We ordered Gyoza and Boneless Honey Ribs as appetizers and both were excellent!

The Gyoza were crisp on the outside and tender, tasty pork stuffing on the inside.
The ribs were superb, super tender boneless strips of pork in an excellent BBQ sauce served over fresh sweet pineapple chunks, a must try if you haven't had them. I'll be ordering them again my next visit!

We then shared an order of Chicken Pad Thai, loaded with large chunks of tender chicken breast and vegetables over noodles in a truly sublime sauce, a squeeze of lime and really good!

If you are visiting the Hartford area or live nearby, this restaurant is a must try.
Everything I have ever ordered here has been expertly prepared, super flavors and an excellent value.
It also is a great place if you like Sashimi or rolls, likely the best in the area.

To close I would record this establishment highly and thank Sakura's staff for another memorable experience for my mother and I.
