Default VKI or Sakura or??

The wife's birthday is coming up and she's been wanting to go to a Japanese restaurant. Which do you prefer, VKI, Sakura or somewhere else?

There are two Sakura's, Spanish Springs and Colony Plaza. I would recommend the Spanish Springs one because that is where they throw the food around. More entertaining.

We ate at the Sakura @. Colony last week. The food was delicious!

I've never been to the other one, but this one is not like the typical Benihanna, where they grill at your table...

I like them both but VKI has my vote.

It really depends on what you order. For sushi I prefer Sakura at colony. For Habachi VKI. For Asian fusion I prefer Bamboo Bistro.

Thank you for the replies. I think we'll do VKI this time and put Sakura(s) on the to do list.

Sakura in Spanish Springs hands down. They give you enough food for 2 meals. Also they have 2 for 1 specials. You can also customize your dinner example I don't get veggies instead I get extra rice and there's no extra charge. Hope your wife has a happy birthday.

We've only gotten take out at the Colony Sakura. We have sushi night once a week so when I tell you their food was consistently wonderful, I'm not kidding. We only have sushi and sashimi. None of the cooked items , Soo we can't comment on that. Happy Birthday to your wife!

Sakura in Spanish Springs they do both cook at their hibachi tables with a trained show chef or have food brought to your regular table or booth. Food is excellent and reasonable, restaurant is clean and airy highly recommend it.
