Fun Food!

We had such attentive service both from our server and from the chef. Make sure you sit at one of the tables at the sushi bar! The appetizers are so different and yummy and there is a lot of variety in the rolls.

We have been to the Mikuni Restaurant three times and have had the best food and service imaginable. Especially wonderful is the Black & White, our favorite dish! The sushi is amazing as well....highly recommend!

This was my first trip to Mikuni's downtown location and it was worth the wait.Our leader thought he had made reservations but it was at one of the other locations. Be sure you know which one you are calling when making a reservation. They made accommodations for our party of seven within 15 minutes. I had a norimake sushi roll... More

Staff was a bit distracted and ambivalent, not rude but not friendly. The chef seems to think that Masago and onion should be on EVERY dish... or at least 85-90% of them. Big hint: it doesn't go with many of your menu items. Flaming mushrooms were a cream-cheese mess, way over the top. About half that much cream cheese would... More

I stop at the Roseville Mukuni whenever I can. The happy hour hour menu is perfect for a party of one. Service and food is always excellent.

So if you like the boiled ebi (shimp) and other cooked choices, Mikuni has a lot of selection for the non-sushi eaters like me. Very tasty. Price is moderate.

Multiple locations within the Sacramento area, each is a bit different but cuisine is consistently excellent. Great variety of rolls and plates, quality of the food is first rate.

I went here with my mum and step dad on a one night stay in Sacramento. This is a must do for anyone in Sacramento! We ordered a bunch of small plates to share and one maki handroll. It was all fantastic and at a reasonable price. The calamari, gyoza and sushi were the best I've ever had. The atmosphere... More
