Sakura was established in 2009 as the first Japanese restaurant in Portsmouth. Since our opening night we have always strived to bring the taste of true Japanese cuisine to our customers, while adding friendly service, knowledge and a lot of enthusiasm for what we do.

We have retained a lot of the features that made our restaurant popular in the Southsea area. These includes tasty food that comes in a great variety, and fast and reliable service. We strive to maintain our standards whilst constantly refining ourselves to meet the demands of every customer.

    Great food but very rushed service. We were out in under an hour. I was asked to choose my dessert while still eating my main. Glasses being cleared before finished. I had indigestion. Disappointed.

    Amazing restaurant. Food always delicious and quick. Our go-to for sushi, although the teriyaki and tempura veggies are just as amazing! Each booth/table feels nice and private without being a separate room. Service was excellent. Offered to move us to a warmer table in case we were cold, and gave dad free ice cream with a candle for his birthday! Dimmed the lights and sang for him and everything. Adorable, and good value for money, around £20 per head for a massive amount of food. Definitely recommend.

    Really awesome food, great service, and a lovely acknowledgment of our daughter's birthday with a song and a candle in some ice cream. We sat close to the door so it was a bit draughty, but otherwise a perfect night out.

    Never disappointed at Sakura, the staff are very welcoming, the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is very clean. Such a variety of dishes on the menu, food is freshly prepared and attractively presented as well as being full of flavour. As far as I'm concerned it's excellent value for money

    Food was delicious and appeared authentic. Very cosy with curtains separating tables, added to authenticity. Service was on point! A little pricey but for sushi (& nice sushi) it was actually quite reasonable. Only think that wasn’t so great was their range of drinks, in particular their wine options- and it was ‘chilled’ as opposed to cold too. Would still 100% go again !

    Amazing food and service. Portions are very big. So great value for money. Friendly and efficient staff. We love that the tables have little curtain dividers between them, to make things a bit more private. The booking was for my sons 19th birthday and they brought him out some ice cream, with a candle in and sang happy birthday 🥳 which was really sweet.

    Food was fantastic as always, we have loads of starters and treat it like Tapas before ending on a main meal. Particularly love the Gyoza's! We eat early and always book around 6pm and the restaurant was already busy as always. Great place to eat and the staff are attentive.
