The Glastonbury restaurant dazzles with hibachi cooking, offering sirloin steak ($21) or red snapper ($24) hibachi meals that arrive with a shrimp appetizer, soup, salad, rice, and vegetables. Both locations offer artfully plated sushi that is made fresh daily. The West Hartford sushi and buffet restaurant offers an all-you-can-eat buffet that costs $21.95 Monday–Thursday and $24.95 Friday–Sunday. Items include vegetable gyoza, stuffed clams, seafood miso soup, chicken teriyaki, and shrimp tempura.
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.
