Restaurant Review

Located two blocks from the train station, The Sakura Bana Restaurant is the oldest sushi restaurant in Ridgewood.


This crowd pleaser is popular with local diners who come to enjoy well prepared sushi served in a friendly environment at a reasonable price


While the decor is basic and humble, and crowded during the peak times, it's food is not.


This family style BYOB traditional Japanese restaurant is where patrons come to enjoy Chef Ken Kuriki's well prepared traditional sushi, sashimi and other Japanese specialties for lunch and dinner. Their seafood and ingredients are fresh.


There is limited parking in the area and you may have to walk several blocks from parking.


The service is extremely friendly and attentive.
