Despite its name, this buffet restaurant serves not only Japanese cuisine but Western and Asian dishes too. The spread includes all the Japanese standards like sushi, sashimi, tempura and teppanyaki, complemented by dim sum, lobster salad, grilled meats, among others.

Hits & misses

Another hits and misses buffet. Recommend the sashimi, fried food and BBQ seafood and meats. I would avoid all the soups, including the starchy shark's fin, on my next visit. It's not that they were bad, but there was too much water and filling up my stomach with water is the last thing I want to do at a buffet. The cha soba was also very salty so you may want to go easy on the sauce. I would come back again on a quieter evening. Some notes on the design of the restaurant. 1) unfriendly to old folks as the food is located on 2 different levels. 2) the floor is slippery. 3) my husband tripped over a mat. Also, the decor at the place looks dated and the ambience outside the restaurant is slightly creepy, as it's located in Clementi Woods. Perhaps more lights will help. The service staff were friendly and chill. They cleared the plates promptly and helped us take pictures. I didn't try a lot of the other cooked food as I wasn't very hungry. Will eat more on my next visit and update the review.

  • You won't go wrong with sashimi salmon and tai. The bonito was too fishy for me though.

I don't know some reviews state that it's so bad. But honestly it's not as bad as the bad reviews sounds. For a reasonable buffet price, it's really worth it. Honestly I agree that there is lack of service but it's a buffet, not a high class/ standard restaurant or a fine dining restaurant. There is variety but tends to be boring after you tried them all . After you try them all i bet you will already feel full. They should improve on the variety. thank god for Sakura as honestly it's hard to find halal buffet like this . It's really amazing. The view gives us a good peaceful ambience.  A really good buffet I will say. I'm very particular about food so when it's not nice I would leave. Not for Sakura hahaha. A must go for foodies or anyone who wants a good meal that will make you leave with a loaded stomach!

Totally wasted my money. The food was disgusting and not fresh. Would never go back there. The ambience was bad and the food ordered came only after an hour. Overall bad service and food.
