While the Skye Canyon Marketplace waits for the arrival of iconic California diner Big Boy on the southwestern end of the retail center, long promised Japanese restaurant Sakura Ya debuts on the opposite side of the parking lot, a short distance from the entrance to the Smith’s grocery store.

A rare Japanese dining option in the far northwest, currently only served by Umami and Krazy Sushi on Durango Drive, Sakura Ya joins casual Asian-inspired restaurants Qwik Thai and China-a-GoGo at the Marketplace, offering takeout and delivery, and its own spin on lunch specials, including sushi and sashimi deals, and beef, chicken, or salmon bento boxes.

The lengthy menu of familiar favorites includes tempura appetizers, soups, ramen, udon, chicken katsu, raw bar options of tuna, yellowtail, and octopus, and teriyaki dishes.

The casual full-service restaurant also serves dozens of specialty, baked, and fried rolls, plus the Sakura boat, hosting three special rolls and a chef’s choice of 12 pieces of sashimi and 10 servings of nigiri.

Sakura Ya, 9750 W Skye Canyon Park Drive, 702-396-2665. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 9.30 p.m.
