About Sakura Japanese Restaurant

BEST OF INDY 2018 WINNER: Best Sushi/Japanese Cuisine

Never short on business, this place is worth developing a little patience for. Sakura has been cranking out the best sushi and sashimi in the city for 20 plus years. They don’t need to change because they’ve always done it just right.

If there is a neighborly Japanese restaurant in Indianapolis — a place that feels comfortable and familiar as a corner pub, yet without in any way compromising the authenticity of its origins — this is it. The simplicity of the dining room reflects Sakura's menu and the presentation of its many dishes. Traditional Japanese cuisine abounds: items like vegetable rolls, a variety of sushi, and gomaae — a bowl of steamed spinach topped with a sweet, creamy sesame sauce — populate the menu. Sakura offers a basic selection of beers and sake. Its parking lot is often overflowing, but the wait is worth the while.
