Reviews for Sakura

This restaurant is the one I always prefer. I go to a lot of restaurants but to this place I constantly return again and again. The crew is very warm and the food they serve is so fresh and tasty. I am always happy to have a good dinner in this place. I highly recommend this place.

Over all not impressed. There was hair in my food, which usually isn't a big deal.. but there was enough to even gross me out. Service was extremely slow, I paid with a credit card and made my total an even $110. The statement on my bank says $115.. take that with what you will. We won't be going back. Not happy with the service or the sanitary state in which food is prepared, but the food was okay.

Looks like a hole in the wall but absolutely the best sushi, sashimi and udon. Very Japanese! The same owner has been here since 1987. My daughter is picky about having authentic Kitsune Udon she says it is the best. I love my fresh maguro sashimi. All portions are generous. The tempura is light and not greasy. The sushi variety is wonderful. I come here every year when I come to Monterey. I have tried other places in Monterey but nothing is as good.
