The Franklin Chamber of Commerce along with Mayor Joe Collins celebrated the opening of Sakura Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar recently with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Sakura is located at 57 Highlands Road in the Shops at Riverwalk shopping center.
Owners Donna and Jerry Qiu, have 10 years of experience in Japanese cuisine including hibachi grill and sushi preparation.
“We plan on adding a Hibachi Grill to our restaurant next year,” says Donna Qiu.
Sakura offers traditional Japanese and sushi cuisine with a lunch menu that can get you in and out in 30 minutes. Offering “Monthly Feature Dishes” is a way for the Qius to “test” new dishes that may eventually be added to their menu.
Sakura is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. till 10:30 p.m. and Sunday, noon until 9 p.m. Reservations are available by calling (828)349-8917.
