Everything on the menu at the Drunken Monkey is good but I especially like the calamari. It is melt in your mouth fresh.

We sat outside in the evening, even though there were no heat lamps and it was fine. Restaurant inside gets noisy and crowded, especially on a Saturday night in August. We enjoyed the street noodles with pork and the the teriyaki chicken with small salad. The chicken was a better value as it was a nice size order while the... More

We had two great meals here, one take-out and one at the restaurant. Both times, the food was excellent -- really flavorful with high quality ingredients. However, the service was a bit off. The first time we tried to order take-out, they said they were too busy to offer take-out. (Who says that? Just tell us how long it will... More

Nice casual staff. Very tasty and imaginative rolls. Decent tempura. I love the Sapporo on tap. And the recommended sake was all advertised. Melons, coconut, etc.

Went to Truckee on a Truckee Thursday .... Very busy and was unable to get dinner on main street without a long wait. On Road from Truckee to Tahoe you will find this gem in a little complex. Great Sushi and asian fusion.

Waited for while to finally get a table, but the food was worth the wait. Great sushi options, and the Steak donburi was yummy! Good for families, especially if they like sushi! Would return.

If you are looking for Sushi or other cooked Japanese style foods, this is a great spot. The Miso soup is outstanding, as well as the Ramen entree with smoked pork. All of the fish we had was perfect and the patio dining is great. Kid friendly but inside dining room does look a little more formal that the patio.

We've eaten at Drunken Monkey twice and enjoyed the food overall. Black bean spareribs is very good and at 7 meaty ribs it makes a nice appetizer for 3 or 4 people. Tempura tasted fine but I like it crispy and when I held up the shrimp it bent in half. Tried several different sushi and the only one that... More

Drunkin monkey is good, I liked the food but was not blown away. Sushi is good but like everything in truckee it is expensive. Nice to not have to go downtown.
