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.

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.

Due to a lack of open restaurants at the Tahoe Mountain Resort we decided to try Mikuni. I have the say the food was decent although a bit heavy on the mayonnaise, the problem was with the cocktails. We were trying to drink a rum and diet coke. The first drink came and tasted wrong so it was sent back.... More

Awesome patio dining in the Northstar village. Great with kids as it's near the other outdoor activities. Awesome food but prices are a bit high for ski village Sushi. They did have a kids portion Udon Noodle soup that was good for our 5 year old. Will definitely go again but I think for value there are other better local... More
