Definitely eat here!

Delicious food and great service. Kid friendly. The sushi is surprisingly good but definitely try their noodle dishes and grilled options as well. The only downside is that its quite salty (as most is most asian food). Overall, my family loves this place and will definitely keep coming back.

Had dinner one night and lunch the next day. Sat at sushi bar for dinner. Shared ramen to start that had kimchi, pork and fried garlic cloves. Admit to fishing out the garlic. It was perfect without. Followed with sushi that was generously cut and fresh. Thought the wasabi was a little thin. Sushi chefs were good and fast. The... More

Drunken Monkey is the best Asian cuisine and one of the best restaurants overall in Truckee. As a local, it is one of my go-to's, with consistent food and service whether the high or off season. The food is fresh and thoughtful and of course delicious every time. Drunken Monkey also has great lunch specials.

This place is okay, pretty good for Truckee, where the food is not like the Bay Area. We've been a few times, service can be slow and the sushi is mediocre. Sorry for being so critical, we have a favorite place at home and this doesn't compare.

Great food! More of a $$ to $$$ range. Worth it, though. Would definitely come back. The calamari was to die for!

Ate here our first night in Truckee (I mistakenly said that was Marg's in my Marg's review-- we ate lunch at Marg's, not dinner-- sorry!). We were staying next door at Hotel Truckee-Tahoe (now a Best Western) so it was nice not having to drive anywhere after a day of travel. The place was packed on a Sunday around 6pm,... More

Boyfriend and I really enjoyed this place. He's a vegetarian and there were ample options, including the fantastic eggplant starter and zested edamame. The handroll I tried was tasty as well as the shanghai noodles. Server was super friendly and attentive, decor was nice (every establishment in Tahoe has to have their jumbo photos of sunsets over the lake evidently).... More

Sushi was great, as was the service! Close to many of the places to stay in Truckee. Visited on a Monday evening and the place was surprisingly busy, but service was still top notch.

Very busy and a long wait, considering our party of four didn't have a dinner reservation. However, the food was delicious and the service was really great.
