We love Japanese Food and when we heard a great Japanese place on the edge of North Sydney, we had to try it out. Sakura is located on 225 Miller Street tucked away behind a couple trees facing the road. There were indoor and outdoor seating and we sat outside to enjoy the mid summer night.
Although our preference is traditional over fusion, Sakura leans towards a fusion of traditional Japanese with modern take. Once we sat down we saw that the menu is quite extensive with given seafood choices such as sushi, Sashimi and rolls but also alot of meat choices such as wagyu beef, pork, chicken and even duck items on the menu.
Note that we went for dinner which the menu items are much more pricer than lunch time prices. This is fine for us but those that want to try it out on the cheap and work in North Sydney then might as well walk down for lunch.
Quiet Friday Night
We started off with Agedashi Tofu which is a soft tofu with a deep fried skin. Usually the soy sauce counter balance with the taste of tofu. In this instance we tasted more vinigar in the sauce than we like. Upside is if your hungry, the serving size is plenty for 2 people.
Sushi and Sashimi Set
It was well made, Salmon and Kingfish tasted great. Although we love sashimi from one of the great Japanese place in Crows Nest.
This really stood out for us at Sakura. Wagyu Beef with Prawns and Advocado filling. All ingredients are fresh and great execution in putting it together. The sauce is what really brings the dish together. Rolls at Sakura is not to be missed.
Next time we come here we will just order 2 rolls and we will be set.
