Positive move for Norwich-based Sakura Japanese Yukiniku
A Norwich Japanese grill owner who invested �30,000 in moving his business to Ber Street last year said he was positive about the move.
Sakura Japanese Yukiniku, which is run by husband and wife team Orlando Williams and Hiroko Matsuka, moved from White Lion Street last September.
The new restaurant, which serves hand-cooked Japanese dishes, can now seat 60 diners and has a 20-seat function area for small occasions.
Mr Williams said: 'Our decision to move was to enable us to develop the business, as well as attract more evening business than we were able to achieve at the White Lion address. We wanted to give it a few months to prepare and bed the restaurant into its new location before starting to aggressively market.'
He said his wife, who is the restaurant chef, wanted to spend more time experimenting with dishes for the function business.

Mr Williams said he was confident that by relaunching the restaurant it would lift the Sakura profile and produce new business. He hopes to eventually open restaurants elsewhere in the region.
