There is absolutely no reason other than the price to think of this as a premium dining establishment or experience. This is the most average, dull Japanese restaurant you can imagine with jacked up prices, that's it. There a lot of good to great Japanese restaurants in this town, Ju Hachi, Mana, Raku, etc. The Mikuni chain isn't even top... More

The staff are very nice, and knowledgable. I had a nice conversation about my meal, it's always great to meet people who like sushi as much myself. It was my first time eating Uni, wow that is different! On top of that, they served best tuna I have ever had, perfectly seared.

I ordered take out and the hostess was really friendly and made me feel comfortable. I asked for suggestions and took them..The vegi-ten roll was delicious and so were the ribs... More

We took a very tired and travel weary toddler here and had a great dinner. The kids' menu is awesome! And reasonable. The sushi and service were also great. We live in Chicago and most sushi is either in a quaint family shop or a very trendy "fern bar," but Mikuni is not either. There are at least four bars,... More

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
