Sakura Sushi Bar Japanese Restaurant

Location:

2029 S. Lynnhaven Parkway
Suite 450
Virginia Beach, Virginia 23456
(757) 416-3551

Atmosphere:

Friday, Friday, Friday! The atmosphere was laid back, crowded but not crazy in any way. Booths, tables, and high top tables, were all filled up and they have a very nice bar with top shelf liquor.  Service is fast, just like the making of the sushi rolls. You can watch them make the rolls right next to the bar, which is always a good sign (nothing to hide , right?).

Food:

There are no words to describe the feeling I got when I heard “all you can eat sushi”.  My heart filled with joy and I waved my credit card in the air and screamed “Take my money! Take all of it!”

Not really, but for $25 that’s how I felt.  There’s an entire menu of rolls, rice, noodles, soups, salads, and appetizers that are included in this price.  You can order for hours and hours until the authorities are called and you are transported elsewhere via a flatbed truck.


The quality of the food was excellent. Pictured above is the Avocado Peanut Roll(top) and the Sweet Potato Tempura Roll.  The rice was perfectly cooked… Not too sticky or sweet. The avocado was ripe and it was absolutely freakin’ delicious with the sweet and salty peanuts.  I would have never thought of his combo, especially not in a veggie roll, but it worked!!

The Sweet Potato Tempura Roll was another new one to me.  The tempura itself was extremely crunchy and flavorful, which was a nice contrast to to soft rice. It had a sweet brown sauce on it, which enhanced the flavor of the sweet potato. I really enjoyed this one.

DIG IT or DITCH IT?!

DIG IT! DIG IT! DIG IT!

Excellent service, a clean laid back atmosphere, and the option to stay and eat high quality Japanese food for hours for one cheap price!? C’mon what’s not to like?  Try this place, you won’t be sorry.  Maybe I’ll see you there, I’ll be in the corner making room for Round 2.

        I’m sorry I don’t. Haven’t made that leap yet.
