Took a group here and was very impressed. Good location, nicely decorated and very friendly staff. Oh, and the sushi was great too!

Large restaurant, a bit noisy but the food is really great! Fresh and excellent ingredients and skillfully made sushi, sashimi etc. Service is friendly. Prices are not very low but still good value. Try the tuna as a starter: EXCELLENT!

Love the menu, unusual combinations make for an adventurous, but reliable sushi experience every time. The Benjamin roll is the best ever, especially if you like spicy. Always fresh, great service, nice clean modern décor. A little pricey, but worth it.

Wonderful choices. I was in sushi heaven. Very crowded and noisy. But this doesn't bother most people.

I haven't eaten there very often but when I have it is always head and shoulders above the rest. The only restaurant that compares is Sansei on Maui.

I have been eating sushi at Mikuni for more than 20 years. Their restaurant has expanded until it is nearly a chain yet they maintain high quality, fresh sushi and have so for what feels like forever. You will not be disappointed. Try the barbecued albacore - amazing!

I always have a good experience at Mikuni. Great Food, Great drinks, Great Time! It can be loud...this is one of THE places to have sushi. So if you are looking for a "quiet" evening, do not go to Mikuni. or get it "to go" Great selection of rolls and dishes to try. Can get pricey if you don't watch... More

We enjoy Mikuni's and their sister restaurant, Taro. The food is excellent - the fish is melt in your mouth fresh. We used to go to closer sushi restaurants when we didn't feel like driving the distance (for us) downtown or to Arden Fair. But now we'd rather not eat sushi if we aren't going to Mikuni's or Taro.
