Sakura Yakiniku is proud to be the first Japanese restaurant that provides an authentic smokeless barbecue restaurant by Hampton Court, Surrey, just a short walk from the historic Hampton Court Palace.



The most unique feature of YAKINIKU is that the meat will come to you RAW! You get to grill it all by yourself. We have a selection of traditional and complementary dishes to suit all including imported Japanese top grade WAGYU beef, British premium steak beef, chicken, pork, seafood, and a selection of vegetables, with our special home-made sauce.



We only want the best, so our grills are imported all the way from Japan. The best part of this is that with their unique cutting-edge technology alongside the down draft vent system, the smoke is sucked under the table and away from our guests so the grill is smokeless. This minimises the smokiness associated with similar grills allowing you to enjoy your dining experience at Sakura Yakiniku.

    The atmosphere and friendly/helpful staff made this more than just a meal, it was an experience. I visited with my partner for our anniversary and had an amazing time. The food was absolutely divine and we will be back soon!

    Pro: the food quality and taste coming out of the kitchen was excellent. Been there a few times and consistency is always reassuring. Cons: beside the manager, the staff is very junior. They all stay around the bar glued there. When you arrive, it took a good minute before you get noticed. During the service, the waitress couldn’t even make the difference between the dishes and gave us 2 dishes of the same thinking it was different. Worse, they took back the dish after we used after chopsticks on it because she said it was different. Drinks took ages and we had to constantly ask missing items after each dish served such as soya sauce going with sushi sets, missing rice, side dishes on set menus, etc. Makes you feel really uncomfortable going in a restaurant to micro-manage people. Being specialised in Japanese BBQ, the grill isn’t even oiled properly therefore all your food gets sticked and food starts carbonising. The only thing that save that night (birthday) was the food and the manager trying to rectified all mistakes recognising it was wrong then offered us a discount + drinks. That’s a shame because the cuisine was good. The absence of a decent service in the restaurant (glued around the bar) and the lack of very basic attention to details is going to bankrupt this business. Hope this review will be a wake up call because we need good restaurant to stay in the area.

    Amazing restaurant, attentive staff but not overly attentive that it becomes annoying, food is a to a really high quality. Price is more expensive than a typical restaurant but for the type of food you’re getting the price is very justified. Will be back again soon.

    The best japanese restaurant in the UK. We are a fan of Japanese cuisine and we’ve been everywhere but we were so impressed with the quality of food here. Meat were of good quality, superb sushi. A bit pricey but it’s worth it, you get good quality, tasty food. The staff were friendly and accomodating. Love it! Have recommended to friends already ❤️

    Went with my 10 year old ‘sushi-monster’ son and we loved it. He had a ton of sushi and i had the option where you grill your own food. The food was delicious…the service attentive and considerate…the place looks amazing….will be going back for sure!

    Lovely experience as we grilled the meat and fish ourselves which the little ones enjoyed. However compared the the meat set there could of been more in the fish set I.e only got 3 scallops 2 prawns 2 sea bass etc. The cocktails was the smallest ones I’ve ever seen in small glasses, other than that the Service and ambiance was perfect!

    Everything we ordered was delicious, the atmosphere and restaurant is so cute and the staff are really friendly. We had a table with a grill and got the wagyu bbq set with a few other side dishes. The grill was fun and different but if you can’t get a grill table the a la crate menu more than makes up for it. A great option for a chatty dinner with friends! Already booked to go again!
