Sakura, Winchester, review
I've been twice, had a lunch box and a nigiri/maki/sashimi platter. I'm not an expert on Japanese cuisine, but I thought that it was good, and better than many Japanese restaurants I've been to. Moderate price point, nice dinning room, friendly service. I think they have been open for about a month or two.
I live in Winchester so I was happy to see this place open but after trying it for lunch one time I would have to say it is very average and not much different from many of the other mid range Japanese places in the area. I would agree that the decor is pleasant and the staff and the owners are very pleasant but the food is just average and not something I would drive out of my way to try. When I am in the mood for Japanese I will take the short drive to Wakefield and go to Sushi Island. Superb sushi along with many other traditional dishes.
