Good sushi & sashimi in a smoked filled restaurant Nov 10, 2012
N47°55'15.1" E106°56'36.0" Inside the Kempinski Hotel Khan Palace (2nd floor) near Sanar Tunnel, East Cross Road, Peace Avenue, Bayanzurkh district, this Japanese restaurant is known as one of the better places in town for an authentic Japanese meal. Many consider it to be the best in Ulaanbaatar. Reservations are advised.

Inside the restaurant you can choose between the traditional Japanese dining table in separated rooms or European tables.

In August 2012 we ordered sushi menu for one person and sashimi menu for one person to share. Visiting Japan several times, we known the standard and Sakura didn't disappointed us. Miso soup as entree was excellent. That unique smoky smell rose from it cup. The tuna dipped in soya sauce with little wasabi was enjoyable. The octopus pieces were an odd diversion from the standard. Sushi was fresh and good. The sushi rice too. We liked it very much.

The only big disappointment during diner was the heavy cigarette smoking at other tables. Living in a country with a ban on smoking in public places, the resentment to spoiling a delicate Japanese diner made us leave early. Next time we will try Nagano.
