Following the success of its parent eatery in Highgate Hill, Sakura Japanese is now a suburban favourite for many Coorparoo locals. Going past the usual sushi train, wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am approach, Sakura is a whole lot more relaxed. Their options include the requisite fresh sushi and sashimi offerings, as well as a la carte enticements ranging from teriyaki to tempura and seafood to vegies, all displaying an authentic Japanese touch. Just to ensure you’re bonding, Sakura throws in plenty of sake and Japanese beer for good measure. Drink up!
