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.

Ever since it's major revamped for it's YCK outlet, the Clementi Woods branch is the next outlet that promises an indulgent dining experience. Sakura's first-ever Seafood in a Bucket, also one of the first buffet concept to offer this bucket treat. Besides this, there will be new DIY counters such as papaya salad, Thai beef noodles and belgian waffles in this newly revamped outlet. Interesting!
On top of the buffet spread, Seafood in a Bucket is another new concept. It features a medley of seafood ingredients as well as parts of the live boston lobster. It will be available for unlimited servings, so you can eat to your heart’s content. Two dipping sauces —spicy; and garlic herb butter— will accompany the mainstay. I perfer the spicy one, the garlic herb butter is a little too buttery for my liking. Don't forget to get the Bird nest egg tart, one of my favorite item at Sakura's revamped concept. Prices start from $25.80 from adult per pax :)

Sakura has recently launched their first ever Seafood in a Bucket in their buffet concept. This is one of the first buffet concepts to offer this item on the menu. You know how restaurants that specialize in such concepts are so expensive and sometimes you still feel hungry after spending a bomb on it? Well.. at Sakura, the Seafood in a Bucket is available as part of your dining experience in unlimited servings.
Ingredients include corn on a cob, scallops, clams, potato, carrots, octopus, mussels, and live Boston Lobster. It comes with two dipping sauces: spicy saucy and classic garlic herb butter. We wiped the garlic herb butter sauce clean because it was that good and so addictive. The creamy texture and combination of buttery and salty flavours complement well with the seafood. For the spicy saucy, there are 7 or more chilli sauces that go into its concoction but it is not overly spicy and very manageable.
Although their range of food offerings is not as extensive as their Yio Chu Kang's outlet, it is sufficient to keep one's belly satisfied. While there are hits and misses, Sakura International Buffet is one of the more affordable buffets around that offer a wide range of cuisines.
Must try: LIU SHA BAO!!!
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.
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!
