Description: Set against the glorious backdrop of the majestic Sierra, our sixth restaurant blends fabulous scenery with equally fabulous sushi. Located in the heart of the village near the skating rink, it boasts decor that successfully blends contemporary Asian design with the ambiance of a European mountain lodge. The pale wood on the walls is enhanced by custom east-meets-west paintings by artist Terry Flanigan, a variety of Mikuni t-shirts, and an assortment of restaurant awards that we just had to display.If you're in the mood for a high-energy experience, by all means take a seat at the bar that sits in the center of the room. If a cozy meal is more to your liking, sneak off to a quiet booth or table and relax in your own little world.

This was our second time to Mikuni. Unfortunately, our experience wasn't as good as the first. Let me start out by saying the food is delicious and our server was very friendly both times. Each time was during a Holiday period. This past weekend we were given a 30-35 minute wait time for a party of 5 at 6pm. Unfortunately,... More

We love this place - after a cold day's of skiing, it serves yummy food at reasonable prices. They don't take reservation, so you need to go early and put your name down.

My fav is the Incredible roll. It has a little of everything. What makes this roll special is that the sauces are amazing. A little sweet and spicy. Also, the ramen is good when you are cold and want some comfort noodle soup. It has thinly sliced roasted pork, bamboo shoots and other goodies in it.

Best sushi ever. Great variety and authenticity. Sushi was fresh and very tasty. We ate here 3 days in a row and didn't get sick of it. Had something new each day. Really great!

We had six big hungry golfers. We were late but called to ask for a change of time and the person was so helpful. No problem. We arrive in time for our revised res and we were happily greeted and seated. Big bar bill, two bottles of sake, beer, G&T. Sushi was all very good. Two of the group had... More

The dinner at Mikuni was wonderful with a great choices of Japanese favorites. The atmosphere is busy, fun and vibrant in a wonderful setting at the Village at Northstar. The service was good and the freaky edamame is terrific. Can't wait to visit again.
