Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 December 2016

Come here for the real Japanese food, friendly staff, Japanese beer, and a selection of good sake. Inside the restaurant is identical to many super Japanese restaurants but not high fashion.

We ate a late lunch and service was very good but not super-fast.

My Japanese wife was extremely thrilled with her Chirashi lunch set: chirashi, miso soup, kinpira, tsukemono, agedashi dofu, and Asahi Super Dry draft beer. I enjoyed snacking on my wife’s order and my own nikujaga.

Sakura doesn't have much of the standard izakaya food but you will enjoy the food, beer, sake, and staff.

Creative courses with authentic taste. One of best Japanese restaurants I have experienced. Will definitely go back next time in San Diego.

We thought it was called Sakuras by the original pancake house. It has been rated as # 1- 5 many times in the national japanese magazine. The owner and chef is Kazu and it is some of the best I have ever had anywhere in the world. if this in not the place fine Sakuras.

The atmosphere was really friendly.
The staff are kind.
They serve wide variety of Japanese foods.
However some of the menu are not served because they use very fresh / seasonal ingredients.
