Sakura is also handing out VIP cards during its first month, which will give customers a 10 percent discount whenever they return to the restaurant.
There are six Hibachi grills that seat eight people each, co-owner “Teresa” Jia Ming Lin said. The restaurant also has six tables for eighteen customers and a sushi bar that seats six.
An earlier Flavor 574 article reported that Sakura Japanese Steakhouse was expected to open in late January, but Teresa said a misunderstanding with the city of Elkhart delayed the opening.
Sakura Japanese Steakhouse is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; and 12 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays.
