15 Km from Quaid-E-Azam International airport stands one of Karachi’s few 5-star hotels, the Pearl Continental. Apart from the other two, namely Marriott and the Sheraton, this luxury lodging caters to several corporate and leisure travellers and is home to a number of fine-dining options including: Marco Polo, the Royal Elephant, Chandni, Jason Steak House and Noodle House. But there is one restaurant, sitting atop them all, that sets the benchmark when it comes to haute cuisine.

Sakura, situated in the penthouse of the Pearl Continental hotel, can be described as a luscious culinary experience devoted to authentic Japanese cuisine coupled with outstanding service. Arguably the best restaurant in Karachi, Sakura’s delightful ambiance and stunning views of the Karachi skyline offer a dining experience rivalled by none.

For sushi-lovers in Karachi it doesn’t get much better this. The bistro serves the finest sushi, sashimi and seafood West of Japan. All the items on the menu are perfectly prepared using only the freshest local produce. Among the more popular dishes: Prawn Tempura, Salmon Teriyaki, California rolls, Spicy Saki Maki and Udon are the bestsellers.

With prices ranging between 1500 – 4000 rupees a head, this fine dining experience doesn’t come cheap. But for foodies and sea-foodies, Sakura is the ultimate destination in times of celebration and jubilation. So compliments to the Chef – His extraordinary culinary skills guarantee drooling customers; always hungry for more!
