Those who love Grilled food and Shabu Shabu this might be the best place for you to pig-out. And yes they are Halal :)
This Sakura outlet is very spacious and well ventilated (open air with shelter- near the sea). Which is good, you wont stink as much after fighting the grill. The place is fairly clean and tidy. Service is good, they are quite fast at clearing the plates.
If you are eating with a small group of people I suggest you to get a table somewhere near the food. If not, you'll end up walking to and fro collecting the ingredients before you can start your cooking show.

They claim to have over 200 varieties of food items, I cant confirm with you on that but they sure have a wide spread of buffet items in the display freezer. You can definitely find food with no leg, two legs, four legs or alot of legs like the prawns and little oct. By the way my brother said the prawns are pretty fresh.
|Prawns and little Octopus|
If you are looking for prepared cook food, they only have a small station of it. I like the steam fish though. And if you like to have some sushi they got this sushi freezer.

|Magical Dipping Sauce|
And What is Yakiniku without the dipping sauce.
They have all kinds of magical dipping sauce for you to choose, from Satay sauce to simple garlic & vinegar sauce. Choose whatever you like, you can even make your own concoction of sauces.
|Satay Scallop Beef|
Size of the square charcoal gill pit is only slightly larger than a piece of A4 paper, I wish that it was a bigger one so we can grill more items all at once. We had lots of satay that evening.
As for the shabu shabu hot pot they use boiling water, no soup base which is a disappointment for my taste bud.
|Aww no sashimi for me|
Overall I like the ambience, the food is nice.
