The best place I have been in ages! The Salmon Teriyaki dinner blew my mind- it’s by fast the most satisfying Salmon I have ever had at a restaurant. There was way more then I expected on my plate, for the first time at a Japanese restaurant that I feel there was more then enough of the main dish. Thank you all so much for making my day just that much brighter! I will defiantly be back again.

This is our favorite Japanese restaurant in Louisville. All menu items are on point, sushi and sashimi are always fresh and delicious. They have a large variety of maki rolls as well and I've liked all that I've ever had. This is a great place to bring your kids as well, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. This is my favorite place to bring my family, definitely recommend it.

One of the best Japanese restaraunts I have ever been to. Excellent service, and excellent food, for an affordable price. It is by far the top of my list for Asian cuisine in the louisvile area.

Everything here is just better than other places in the area. The green tea is actually green and not the brownish color most places serve, the house sake is actually tasty. The sushi rolls are amazing. The ginger dressing is on point. I don't have a bad thing to say about this place... well I wish they would put some sort of sun blind in the main window... but really, the food is the best.

Clean, great food, great service, good atmosphere! If Sakura Blue isn't on your list of places to take your family, it should be!! It is also great for a date night. You have the option to sit at the sushi bar, a table, or a hibachi grill. (HIGHLY RECOMMEND)

Great sushi, I wish it was a little less costly. But overall the quality is high and has excellent flavors / options.Great deep fried options and the location is very convenient.I don't know if they still do penny sake night but that is a fun time you won't regret, at least until the next day.

Excellent Japanese food. Very flavorful and made just right.Their Louisville roll has a nice sweet, unique flavor that leaves you satisfied.I tried their bento box lunch special once. While I didn't think it was that much food, it definitely left me stuffed and satisfied with all the different foods presented to me.The folks there are always pleasant and the restroom is pretty clean.

We stopped in Sakura's on the spur of the moment for dinner. We were seated right away even though they were busy at the time. The menu offers a good selection from sushi to chicken and steak dishes. Service was great and the food was excellent. We definitely plan on going here again to try other menu items.

I celebrated my birthday today in this great place. I am glad to say that we had a sensational evening and the place was evidently one of the reasons for this strong celebration. The stuff cooperated in a splendid way, the cuisine was tasty and my buddies were so delighted. We shall surely visit again for more events. thanks very much.

DO NOT PLACE POSTMATES OR DOORDASH ORDERS HERE! If you order through these apps, they will tell you they are “preparing your order” as soon as you submit it, only to wait to take the legitimate order once a delivery driver arrives to the restaurant in-person. Waited over an HOUR just to be told, once I made a few phone calls to see what was up MY order, they didn’t even have the ticket - meaning, no food or order placed. A BIG false advertisement. A BIG disappointment.

Hands down some of the best sushi I have ever had! The atmosphere is mediocre (not very fancy) but the sushi quality compensates. Their prices are fair and their options and taste is phenomenal.

My family and I visited recently and it was the BEST sushi experience we have had yet. We sat at the sushi bar and had a wonderful time. The place is not "entertaining", but they have great food. My son doesn't even like fish, let alone nigiri; and he even admitted the salmon was not 'too bad'.The sushi chef, George, was engaging and nice to chat with. My wife was jealous she did not get to go, but we will be back.

Incredibly expensive. That being said, it’s very delicious, it’s your run-of-the-mil hibachi. The rice, however, and the grilled calimari are phenomenal. The fried rice is really where this place stands out. -1 Star for the price. My wife got the grilled calimari hibachi, and it was amazing. It’s also the cheapest option along with chicken at around 15$ (veg only is 11). Will be getting this if we ever go back, we love Hiko-a-mon way more. Other options start at 20 and go up from there.

Very attentive and very nice welcoming staff. This was a carry out meal. I was really disappointed and I was disappointed that I was disappointed. I was really excited to find a place highly rated that was close to me. I had that tempura dinner, which was for shrimp and lots of vegetables. Which I felt it was overpriced given what I received. The tempura batter, was completely tasteless. Almost like you was eating fried flour. I received a salad with ginger dressing the salad is nothing more then head lettuce. And the edamame was actually in edible tough and old. And I hate to do this to a local business, but I think it’s only fair to the people that might choose to go there. PerhapsEating at the restaurant would be better than the carry out but the quality of food used would not change. Unfortunately I was remembering a meal I had in Chicago at a same type of restaurant. That was my first mistake. Good luck

A good option to have in the area. Very impressed and appreciative that the miso soup is true miso soup. Other places have "soup" which is essentially broth. The fried rice is tasty and the service is efficient. The take out has a reasonable wait time. Would like to try more items during future visits!

I've been to a few sushi places in town, and this one is by far my favorite. The small building makes the experience cozy, and there are bar seating, table, and hibachi options. The food is wonderful and always tastes fresh (you can even watch them make it if you sit at the bar). The staff is very polite and attentive. Overall, it's a wonderful dining experience and you get better food for less than you would get at bigger sushi restaurants.

Great sushi and hibachi dining spot in St. Matthews. Service is excellent, food quality is great, and the price is just right. The restaurant has a cozy, intimate feel to the settings and the staff are rather unintrusive with their interactions. Overall the dining experience is excellent. I have never had bad service nor an unpleasant experience at Sakura Blue. I would recommend it to anyone who wants good sushi at a great price. The restaurant is equally ideal for dates looking for a more intimate dining experience or for small groups of friends looking for a bite to eat.
