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.

great food

So good that we went two nights in a row! The asparagus was spicy and different - a must! Busy just after golf but quieter around 7pm.

Excellent service, food was good, and reasonably priced considering this was Northstar. Would definitely eat there again.

My wife and I went to Mikuni Japanese restaurant in the village at Northstar Resort. Excellent service by Ruby and good recommendations. Wide selection with some unusual items. Best new item for us was the Carmichael roll at $13.75. Excellent textures and flavors. The Puff Daddy and pork belly skewers were very good and the pork belly was not fatty.... More

Have eaten here a few times over the years, always good! The Marilyn Monroll is delicious, as well as the spicy edamame. I haven't had a bad meal here ever, same goes for the one in Davis.

Love this Restaurant ! My husband has the Bento Box, which has several delicious choices. Always fresh and tasty. I get the whole order of shrimp tempura. So delicious ! The wait staff has always been helpful and fun. You need to put your name in, as they don't take reser- vations. Then you can enjoy watching the skaters !... More

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.
