The Sushi here is one of the best. The atmosphere and the workers are great. It does get crowded, but you can ask to sit upstairs where it is a bit smaller and not as crowded. Everything on the menu is great so you can't go wrong on what you order.

We have been eating at Mikuni for the past 17 years and is our favorite place for sushi. We have had lunches or dinners with friends and family. We have tried all of the locations and find the quality and service excellent. All the sushi and sashimi were fresh and presented beautifully.

Great drinks, the food is consistently delicious and the service never disappoints. Even for non-raw lovers there are many options so it's a great... More

Very interesting menu. All sushi and sashimi was super fresh and classically present. Tempuras where perfect neither soggy or crusty. Service is outstanding from the moment you walk in the door. This was our first time and we will repeat.

This was a treat, and we were taken by our friends who know Mikuni well. We sat at the bar, and an owner prepared sushi, sashimi, and some teppan treats, which just continued to come. The fish was fresh, well presented, flavorful, and of excellent quality. I would heartily recommend this place for a couples or families or for people... More

The Hand rolls are awesome. Try the zig zag roll. They also have amazing platters for 70 dollars. We will be back. Well done!
