Just before COVID hit, Sakura Terrace quietly opened its doors on King Street after undergoing a beautiful renovation. My first time trying this restaurant left me wanting more as they are authentic in their service, style and dishes... but also showcase new innovations that are creative and meant to impress the eyes and stomach.
For lunch you can order a bento or chirashi and be nicely full. The portions are generous and the quality is superb. The sushi chef also takes great pride in making the usual finds, but also incorporating very unique and bursting with flavor additions to the menu.
Standout dishes include: renkon cheese, mushi awabi, hamachi carpaccio, spicy tuna, abalone and washu sirloin steak. They also have a bento set for the tempura lover, unreal sushi creations and rolls along with extremely fresh fish. Prices are also quite affordable considering the excellent quality.
The ambiance it like being in Japan. They have nicely spaced tables, accents of sakura and other Japanese elements and very traditional service with Japanese native speakers.
The exterior looks like a zen garden and they have sushi bar, inside and outdoor dining options.
