About the Restaurant

Sakura Asian Express

Thai, Korean, Vietnamese and Japanese Food.  If you are thinking of eating something Asian, Sakura Asian Express is a one stop restaurant that will be the answer to your Asian flavors craving.

Why eat with us?  Our flavors are authentic.  All our sauces are made from scratch from original homemade recipes.

Sakura Express was founded by Ms. Tiffany Cheong, who is originally from Malaysia.  Tiffany developed an interest in cooking at a very young age.  She especially loved learning and preparing recipes in her grandmother’s kitchen.

Over the years, Tiffany traveled throughout Southeast Asia, to places such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan.  Each place she visited, she engaged with the people and tried their foods.  It was these experiences that gave her the idea to bring these authentic Southeast Asian foods into a restaurant of her own someday.

After many years of dreaming and preparing, Tiffany’s passion has finally been fulfilled, and Sakura Express became a reality.  Tiffany sincerely hopes that everyone will enjoy the outstanding and original Southeast Asian food that is now in Greenville.

This is what our clients have to say

Every dish is handcrafted at the time of order. I’ve tried almost everything on their menu and I love it all. Dishes you can’t get anywhere else because the owner makes them from scratch. The portions are large so you always have leftovers which makes it a fantastic value. And you don’t have to cook for 2 meals 🙂

This is my spot when I’m in Greenville, NC!! If you are looking for authenticity in a small city this is your place! This place serves the BEST authentic Asian staples you’re ever going to taste! My go-to is cashew nuts, beef, and steak!!

Amazing! Definitely a hidden gem. We found this place searching the web for Asian food. We were blown away. The restaurant is not fancy. When we sat down a guy nearby asked if we’d ever been there and told us everything on the menu is good. He had Singapore Curry noodles and I had to try it. Wow! My husband had spicy kimchi noodles. He was so happy! The staff is lovely. Service was friendly. Eat here!

Delicious curry noodle soup, fresh spring rolls and yummy Korean noodles. I’m heading back to try the Ramen shortly. Usually a place that has a menu with so many different Asian cuisines is suspect to me but the owners are Malaysian and have most certainly worked in many kitchen serving up a variety of different Asian foods. There soup stocks are complex and really very beautiful! So glad to have found it.

If you’ve never been to SAKURA ASIAN EXPRESS in Gville, you are seriously missing out. They make everything from scratch. So, there’s a bit of a wait, but it’s soooo worth it. Best authentic Asian cuisine I’ve ever had. I went for lunch and the Singapore curry noodle soup was to die for. So much so, that after work I picked up 2 other entrees to take home and try. Gen tso and tonkotsu ramen.

**Nibbled on the Gen tso heat lvl3 otw home and it too is the best I’ve ever had. They have pineapples in it to counter the heat. Amazing

This place is a gem. You wouldn’t even know it passing by on the road but you have to stop in here! I’ve never been to Asia but according to many people, this food is authentic. I wouldn’t be able to judge that aspect but I promise it’s amazing! Bi bam bap is my favorite, it’s literally the most flavorful dish I’ve ordered in any restaurant. The portions are very large (in a good way) and the staff is always friendly. I also love the variety from thai to Korean, you can literally eat your way through Asia right here in Greenville.

This was my favorite restaurant when I was a student at ECU! Favorite dish is the spicy basil noodles with chicken! Their spice range is 1-4 with 1 being the lowest, 4 spiciest. I LOVE spicy food and a 3 is suitable for my taste. I tried a 4 once and thought I was going to die! I’ve been living in Raleigh for 5 years now but travel back to visit family often and always make a stop on my way through town to get my fix in. Love this place and the owner is so nice!!

Food tastes good everything is perfect. We order so many times But if I want to try something different and I ask to change something in dish owner won’t allow that. In my case I won’t eat any seafood or other meat than chicken if I say pls don’t add shrimp in that dish she will say NO on my face. So I did stick with couple of dishes only.
