Style / ambiance: Sakura is in the chic Metropolitan Hotel, a stone’s throw from Connaught Place.
As India’s first Japanese eatery, this award-winning restaurant with its three private dining rooms offers the best of Kaiseki cuisine prepared by celebrated master chef Akahira Tetsu. Sakura is decorated in a contemporary Japanese manner to create serenity and relaxation: the window blinds are deliberately designed to resemble traditional Japanese tatami mats, common to most houses in Japan, and the stone floor and neutral wall colors are inspired by the earth’s natural elements. Japanese cuisine is known as an enigma wrapped in layers of mystery and, at Sakura, guests can enjoy unraveling every carefully-prepared dish. We advise trying the chef’s kushi age goshumori, which is the next best thing to dining in Tokyo!
