I was staying at the Holiday Inn Express, a 10 minute walk away, so after the first delicious meal here, I kept going back. First time I sat at bar and had lunch special (bento box $12). 2nd and 3rd times I got take out -- sushi rolls in both cases, plus miso soup. It is beautiful inside, as is... More

While in the Sacramento area on a business trip, I stumbled across this restaurant. It is part of the "K street" corridor where several other restaurants & eateries are located. The food was very well prepared and the servers were nice, friendly, and knowledgeable in regards to their menu items. The tempura sushi rolls were devine and the teriyaki chicken... More

Our group arrived during happy hour and took full advantage of the specials available. We sat the the sushi bar and had an ongoing conversation with the chef Jesse. Two of our group were sushi novices and Jesse was more than happy to describe the different offerings and to tell about the different fish types. We ended up trying about... More

I went three times in two days! The first time was a Sunday night around 9p.m. I came in with a serious hankering for sushi and they did not disappoint. The decor is inviting. Quirky enough to warrant notice for their "edge", but tasteful enough so that guests are gawking. It's also very clean. I sat a sushi bar table.... More

I am not much for raw sushi, but I figure when you're this close to the ocean, it's a fairly safe bet. Traveling to the area for a work trip, there were 3 of us and each wanted to try very different things. Raw...cooked...sake...spicy...savory...everyone left full and happy. We had a lot, lot, LOT of food and spent about $50/pp... More

My girlfriend and I ate dinner here while visiting Sacramento and it is wonderful Sushi. The $40 for two people menu is more than enough food (with four courses), we had the Potstickers Appetizer, Sesame Chicken, Soft Shell Crab Handroll, and Ice Cream to top it off. The Handroll was one of the best I have ever had, I will... More

Although the service and atmosphere is great you are paying for the ambiance for sure. Food is fresh and tasty. Service is fast and servers are friendly. Luckily a friend of mine paid because I could definitely not afford it on my salary. Over $100 for 4 people. No alcohol just water for drinks and sushi and this was during... More

I have been going to Mikuni since it was a small "10 table" sushi place in the middle of a small strip mall! Now it is most of that strip mall plus several others around town! The most authentic Japanese food around run by a "real" Japanese family! One of the only sushi places where you get real white tuna... More

I visited Mikuni with my daughter and granddaughters. It is their favorite restaurant. You can not go wrong with anything on the menu. My granddaughters who are 2 and 4 love the California roll and tuna roll. When you can get a toddler to ask for sushi you know it has to be awesome. The service was prompt and courteous.... More

I have known Taro since they opened their first restaurant and he has now grown to several sites. The fish is always the freshest and he has a larger selection than any other restaurant. His chefs are creative and will make anything you request or surprise you.
