Zakura Sushi Baggot Street lower is a sushi Bar restaurant nestled in Dublin's South city centre, just moments away from the Stephen's Green. The restaurant serves a selection of sushi and noodle dishes. The restaurant is set in traditional Japanese decor, and offers its diner a lunch box special throughout the week, which allows diners at lunch the chance to enjoy their freshly prepared dishes. Zakura do also offer a lunch and dinner menu.

Our sushi is made fresh by order and never leftover from the previous Hour. Not all sushi shops are as dedicated to freshness as we are at Zakura. The only thing better than fresh, mouthwatering, delicious sushi, is paying less for it! In addition to tasting the difference, you can be sure that each time you eat at Zakura, you’re eating delicious, same time sushi of the freshest quality.

    I liked the traditional decor and feel of the restaurant although out table was beside the sliding door which was constantly being left open and it was cold. Good selection of traditional Japanese food at a reasonable price. My pork ramen was a little too salty and lacking a little flavour but the gyozas and beef terrayaki were delicious.

    Good standard Japanese food, including ramen, sushi, maki, teppanyaki, tempura. Reasonable prices. Uncomfortable seating. Noise level much too high, with annoying whiny-sounding singers/music. I would have ordered more, but decided to leave because of the noise level.

    We went with my brother, his wife and our various teen children. Everybody loved it. The sushi was great, gyoza delicious, and the kids loved the ramen. There was a something for everyone. Will definitely visit again.

    Really enjoyed my experience here. Staff were nice, very friendly and were quick to cancel a cocktail off the bill when they forgot to bring it over. The sushi of course was so tasty, no one at the table had anything bad to say. They’ve a really quick turnaround so it is good for a quick bite to eat which is what we were up for !

    The location is small and nice, the food was really good and the staff were all very friendly, fast and considerate. Especially the giro refilling our water glasses was very diligent with her task! There's nothing bad to say about the food or staff, it was all absolutely satisfying. The only less convenient aspect was the size of the place and how it's organised, we were six people and felt a little squeezed in around the relatively small table and there was no wardrobe which is why we had to get inventive with out jackets and also bags. However, this is just a minor aspect and all of my party agree that we'll be back!

    Overall it was a very nice spot for dinner, staff were pretty friendly, but the vegan and vegetarian options were not great. The menu was very poorly labeled so it was very difficult to tell what was vegan vs vegetarian. There was no vegan meal option so I ended up asking for a few sides, one of which according to the allergens should have been vegan but ended up not being according to the waitress, so it was definitely frustrating trying to find something suitable. I ended up getting a side of steamed rice, wok fried greens and 2 pieces of inari fried tofu sushi, which came to about 15 euro, which really did feel quite overpriced for 3 small sides. If the menu was to be redesigned to have more clear labelling and more vegan friendly options added I would 100% come back, but until then I would not return unfortunately.

    The food is amazing. The dumplings, the sushi - doesn’t matter which you get! And the katsu chicken curry always a crowd pleaser for those less adventurous eaters! Prompt and kind staff!
