I love this place. The food is good and if you leave hungry it is your own fault. I would highly recomment this restaurant. I would go more often, but too much good food. I think the price of the meal is fair for the amount of good food you get.
Overall, this place was a great change from the usual TGI Fridays and Chilis that Charlottesville has to offer. It's very similar in style, menu, and flavor to Samurai and Benihana, two restaurants that I really missed coming to Charlottesville. We were seated immediately, but it took WAY too long for the waitress to take our orders and bring drinks - about 20 minutes before our orders were taken, another 10 minutes before we had drinks, and then about another 10-15 minutes before we got soup (the first course). Everything went at a normal pace after that, especially when the cook arrived at our table. The soup and sauces weren't quite as good as at Samurai and Benihana (they seemed a little watered down), the shrimp was a tad overcooked, and the fried rice was slightly undercooked - but overall, not bad. I went with several friends and between us we had the shrimp, filet mignon, scallops, and chicken as entrees, and shrimp, mushrooms, and chicken liver for appetizers. We were all satisfied with our orders, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience (the cooks do all the same tricks as the ones at Samurai and Benihana - flicking shrimp tails, making onion volcanos, etc.). Also, if you go on Sakura's website, there are usually coupons that you can print out and take to the restaurant that make it a bit more affordable. Ultimately, it was good, not great, but as far as I can tell it's the only restaurant of its kind in Charlottesville, and I would definitely go back (though I would plan to be there about 30 minutes before I actually want to eat!).
