I recently visited a fantastic little sushi place in Philadelphia. Usually I’m hesitant to go out to get sushi simply because I’m very picky with it and I don’t have the money to throw away on rolled up fish and rice. A friend of mine asked me to join him in Bensalem for some sushi, so I decided to give it a try.
Sakura Japanese Restaurant was a surprising delight. From the outside, it looked like any typical Asian restaurant. Once you walk in however, the atmosphere is very serene and interesting. You can watch the chef’s prepare the rolls and sashimi artistically on your plate, which is always my favorite. It is very quaint, but with the feel of a high end restaurant. The selection is great and the prices are even better. There are lunch specials everyday, with a great dinner menu as well.
For two, we got a soup, salad, dinner entrée, beverages and a roll for under 25 dollars. I highly recommend the Godzilla roll, it is filling and flavorful beyond description. Here is a complete list of their menu.
I hope to make it back soon now that I know I can get quality sushi without breaking the bank.
