Sakura Garden West Hartford seduces taste buds with two distinct buffets of upscale Japanese cuisine served alongside a menu of freshly prepared sushi and sashimi. Diners moseying through the 8,500-square-foot space can peruse the cold buffet to test the effectiveness of a new parka or to acquire a stack of oysters on the half shell. Guests can procure chilled starters of traditional Japanese seaweed salad and edamame before sauntering through the blue neon lights lining the hot buffet, where piping-hot teriyaki salmon and tender coconut shrimp await adoptive stomachs. After stilt walking back to the table on a pair of steamed snow-crab legs, patrons can solicit the waiter for a menu of freshly prepared sushi and sashimi, which is included with the buffet. Meticulously wrapped pucks of red snapper and white-tuna sashimi cavort with cool morsels of spicy yellowtail sushi to fulfill diners' hankerings for aquatic edibles.

Agile servers deliver glasses of semisparkling Candoni moscato wine ($7) and chilled pomegranate martinis ($9) below the modern, hanging lights of a fully stocked bar. Sakura Garden’s large dining room attracts flocks of feasting friends and befuddles angry bulls with a high ceiling bathed in fluorescent red light.

Sakura Garden

Patrons shouldn't be fooled by the sleek white and grey exterior of Sakura Garden—there's plenty of color inside. Through the doors, blossoming pink cherry trees mark a path to the dining room, where a sea-blue glass ceiling hints at the variety of oceanic fare served up at the all-you-can eat buffet. Here, wall-mounted fish provide pairing suggestions as diners dish up hot items such as steamed snow crab legs and teriyaki salmon, as well as cold options such as shrimp cocktails. Seafood also reigns supreme at the sushi bar, where chefs slice sashimi and create rolls fresh to order. After guests have filled their plates, they continue on to the softly-lit dining room, where red lights cast a glow on murals depicting misty, pastoral vistas.

A full bar offers Japanese beer and a selection of sake, and a private room is available for events and special occasions. The buffet is closed from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and happy hour runs from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Customer Reviews

Walk around the restaurant and decide if you want the sushi area, the bar, the hibachi room or the patio. The place is beautiful and the food is excellent.

Sakura has excellent and fresh food well presented. We celebrated my husband's birthday and they fix a dessert for him. They brought a huge dish and they wrote happy birthday and had a sweet treat for him.
