Sakura Ichi

Power lunch, dinner date, happy hour. I tried out Sakura Ichi in Pomona a couple of weeks ago after a few recommendations. It’s a beautiful restaurant in downtown Pomona with good service and pretty good Japanese food.

The inside of the restaurant is gorgeous. Modern Japanese. Dark wood. Red accents. Bamboo poles. Mood lighting. Large bar. Private rooms, including traditional Japanese dining rooms. It’s a great place for a dinner date or a business lunch.

The service is friendly and attentive. Our waiter explained the different dishes and made some very good suggestions.

While the food isn’t magnificent, it’s still very good. The menu includes pretty much everything you’d expect to find at a Japanese restaurant — chicken teriyaki, gyoza, California rolls, tempura, salmon teriyaki and lots of sushi. There’s even separate page dedicated to Chinese dishes. I also ordered a salmon collar (they also have yellowtail collar) that was soft, fatty and very tasty. I was disappointed by the tempura. The vegetables were a little hard, and the tempura batter wasn’t as light and fluffy as I would like it to be.
