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.

    I now regularly make a trip here from Chichester with my family. Food and service are excellent. Katsu curry is particularly good as are the Temaki Sushi, especially the soft shell crab😋

    Nothing extraordinary, just a great neighbourhood option. All the familiar Japanese menu items (Katsu, Tempura, Ramen, Sushi, Sashimi) well made, efficiently served by friendly staff. A good solid option any night of the week.

    Food was delicious, staff were so lovely and friendly. So much choice. Amazing tempura ice cream. The fact my fussy son can't wait to go back says heaps, and we wholeheartedly agree with him. The katsu ramen filled my growing teen, and they were fantastic in making my other son just a bowl of ramen.thankyou for making it a lovely night. And the decor is stunning. Beautifully laid out.

    Food was awesome. Was very busy for prime time on a Saturday night and you will 100% have to book. I don’t imagine they would be able to accommodate walk ins based on how busy it was when we attended. Sushi is overall an expensive night out but as far as sushi goes I think this was great value for money!

    Really tasty and fresh food for an excellent price. The service was exceptional and the food came out very quickly. It has the quality of a high end restaurant but with the ambiance and feel of a homey family run restaurant. We will definitely come again.

    We had a table booked for 20:30 but didn’t get seated until nearly 9pm, luckily the food made up for this as it was fresh, quick and absolutely delicious. If this restaurant was bigger or there was a Sakura2 it wouldn’t be a bad thing

    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.
