When the long lived Mao’s closed I was disappointed to see something more amateurish and downmarket open in its place. 888 Sakura served Japanese and Malaysian food, which is not the most obvious combination. It is eclipsed in dubious fusion terms by the Indian / Hungarian restaurant Diamond in Clifton Hill, but I digress. Anyway, 888 Sakura lasted two years. It won’t be missed.
