The atmosphere is very relaxing with the water feature wall and koi pond aquarium around the dining area.

The clear broth soup with seafood is served in a sweet little teapot with a matching cup. Very tasty and fun to eat! I highly recommend the Pasha Maki (shrimp tempura rolls topped by avocado and salmon with a tangy sauce drizzled on top) and the Cappuccino Maki (shrimp tempura rolls topped by steamed shrimp with a cappuccino sauce). The food is a bit expensive, but it's worth it as a treat!

The staff is very professional and attentive. They try their best to make you feel comfortable.

For sure the best place for sushi in Islamabad, but not the tops when compared to other places - even Monrovia Liberia was far far better! The tempura is a bit greasy but still good. The sushi is nice - several options have been designed by customers. A nice alternative to many places in the twin cities, and one of the two top restaurants in the Marriott.

We went there on a Saturday and the place was by no means busy, but still had a buzz to it. Good décor, efficient service and yummy food define Sakura. They served us delicious sushi. No extra soy or wasabi was needed, just VERY good rice and fish! The waiters are knowledgeable and can recommend really good dishes(anything off their Teppanyaki is great). The prices are a bit on the higher side, however, this is the best choice for Japanese cuisine in the city! Highly recommended.

I have been meaning to write a review for a while. we have been regular customers at Sakura since many years but in the past three years my husband and I go there if not twice then surely once a month, and I am pleased to say that never have we been disappointed.

Surely the best Japanese food in the country and even better than some Japanese restaurants I've eaten at abroad. The service is always impeccable and one of the key factors of always taking all our guests there and going back there regularly is the staff and their courteous and friendly manner. Special shout out to our server Shabbir.
