Wanstead’s new micro-restaurant

It’s a week for restaurant innovations. After we reported the news of Snaresbrook’s forthcoming Italian grill Bombetta, Aldersbrook diners have been keen to share their enthusiasm for a new, tiny, Japanese restaurant called Sakura which has opened in Brading Crescent.


Wansteadium reader Sumit told us: “It’s very small, but I’ve been a few times since it opened and have been impressed, given the price of the fare and the very small space available. For those of us in Aldersbrook it’s nice to have a decent Japanese place at walking distance when we don’t want to go to Sumo Fresh – especially next time Blake Hell roadworks return!

“You’ll see that it’s not really a restaurant, a couple of bar stools to sit on while you wait for your food. But I’ve already been a few times and food seems really good, generous portions and reasonable price. I’m no expert on Japanese food, but it seems pretty authentic. Something a bit different in sleepy Aldersbrook but very welcome.”

Another reader, Val, wrote that they do takeaway as well as collection and hope to be able to develop their area of the pavement to have seating outside in the summer.

We’re delighted to add Sakura to the list of establishments featured in Wanstead is Made in Wanstead.
