Sakura Winchester

I recently found out that Sakura in Winchester does an all you can eat Sushi for lunch and dinner. At lunch time, it's 13.95 and dinner is 20.95. Both are available 6 days a week (Closed Mondays). It's very similar to what Maki Maki in Woburn does, there is Sushi, Rolls, Hand Rolls and hot offerings from the kitchen.

It's a very small place with a sushi counter in the back. There are more tables back there as well. I had been here previously and it was OK.

Started with squid tempura and it was a bit disappointing, could have come out of any supermarket's frozen section.

Salmon, Red Snapper and Tuna Nigiri was excellent with fresh fish, really decent sized pieces of fish and nice rice. I also got one piece of grilled eel that comes with a sweet sauce and was very tasty. The roll of spicy salmon with crisp? was minced pieces of salmon, not too spicy with something crispy added, could have been panko.

Despite the squid above I ordered tempura shrimp, and some more tuna and the shrimp was excellent, really crisp and light coating and here you could really taste the shrimp. This place really blows Maki Maki out of the water. Friendly service, plenty of parking and really really good quality ingredients. I wish I had a bigger appetite ;-).
