Sakura Opens Locale in East Memphis

Sushi lovers, rejoice. Sakura Japanese Restaurant has opened another location, this time in East Memphis.

Sakura opened last week in Erin Way Shopping Center, 4840 Poplar Ave. The eatery faces Saint Nick Drive in the 3,930-square-foot space previously occupied by women’s clothing store Chessie’s, combined with about half of the old Mantia’s.

The menu features an array of sushi, noodles and hibachi-style dishes. The Joyce roll is an absolute must.

This will be Sakura’s third regional restaurant, including locations in Germantown at 2060 West St. and in Jackson, Tenn.
