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.
We went here for lunch today (Sat), and noted that Senior Citizens were offered a charge of $34.80 per pax (a savings of $4 off adult prices). We were later embarrassed when we went for the crabs and was told that this is NOT included for Senior Citizens. No where else was it noted that this was the case. How can Sakura claim this is discounted price for Seniors where a specific item is left out just for Seniors??? Dammed, felt cheated. Sakura is dishonest!!
Sakura buffet was still decent when we went for it 10 years ago. However, the price had increased from $25/pax in the past to $42/pax now. In addition, the quality of food and service now is extremely horrible for the price we were paying for.
The variety of food was horrible in this restaurant since they undergone a renovation a year or so ago. There was only a single choice of sashimi and you had to go to the counter to request for it rather than taking it from the main area. It was also not clear that there was sashimi and my elderly parents had great difficult in getting it from the couter as you had to go through a complex procedure to request for it. In addition, there were not that many types of food available and most food you get there were the hawker centre type. It is extremely ridiculous for the price we were paying for.
Some dishes were also listed but were not available. For instance, I had asked for an oyster omlette at 8pm and they had said it was not available even though the last serving was at 9.30pm. Many of the other dishes were also not replenished after they were all gone and there was still 2 hours of dining time (e.g. some of the nice sushi probably because they were trying to cut cost and restricting availability of the expensive dishes).
The service was also horrible. We had like 7-8 plates stacked at the edge of table for 30 mins. No one came to collect them at all. In the end, because we really had no space left, I had to go put the dishes in the common area myself which was totally ludicrious.
We went on a Saturday evening (19th March 2016) and this restaurant used to be packed and you might not be able to get a seat even till 8.30pm. Now, half the restaurant was empty by 8pm. It kinds of tells the whole story.
Strongly discouranged from going and I seriously doubt we will go again. For the price we were paying, we could have received much better japanese food and services elsewhere.
We have been to sukura few years ago. It was not bad at that time. But yesterdqy's meal was disappointing. We have spent around $750 and got this type of food and service. We will not ever go again.
The food variety is very few.
Everything is very salty.
Soup is not hot. Porridge is not hot.
Food didn't top up, we have to ask the staff to top up. Service is bad. Overall, is not worth going. Please don't go.
