Pinetop/Lakeside is a great vacation get-a-way and Sakura Buffet is the best Asian buffet you will ever see.
This all-you-can-eat buffet features four soups, many appetizers, many different seafood, chicken, beef and pork entrées, a sushi bar and a dessert/ice cream bar.  I was delighted to find a mix of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai and dim sum items that were delicious.  Take your pick or try them all.  They use 100 percent vegetable oil and no msg.   You are sure to find your favorite dishes from this huge selection!
The restaurant is spacious and comfortable with beautiful art and friendly employees. Huey Huang is your host and proprietor.  For larger groups or business meetings, call 928.358.4329 to reserve a group section in the large banquet room.  Sakura Buffet is open seven days a week beginning with lunch at 11am-4pm and dinner from 4-9pm. Sundays and holidays offer an all day dinner buffet.

Sakura Buffet is located at 20 East White Mountain Boulevard, Unit 5, in Lakeside – in the Safeway Plaza. For more information, visit or find the restaurant on Facebook.
