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

Pricey, but it's great to have a restaurant in Truckee that serves something other than burgers, burritos, etc. Not that the burgers, burritos, etc are bad or anything, but variety is welcome! My husband and I have enjoyed a couple of meals here, and always enjoy ourselves. Service is great, the atmosphere is great.

We had lunch here during the week. It was not busy as it's the end of ski season soon. We ordered some sushi rolls and nigiri. My husband had the bento box lunch which had teriyaki salmon among other things. We all enjoyed our meals. The service was good. We'll be back on future visits.

We were a party of 8 having dinner here. We were cramped into a back booth so it was not very comfortable. The ginger beer was great as was the green tea ice cream but all the noodle dishes were just so so. The tempura and chicken teriyaki we ordered came out after everything else was finished. Our server was... More

Very busy when we arrived but were seated promptly. Had the special that was clams in a curry coconut sauce, very good but several unopened clams. Everyone in our party loved the food, but as for the delivery of it, another story. I was served my clams well before everyone else, at least 10 minutes, then two noodle dishes arrived,... More

This place was right next to our hotel. We fortunately had to stay in Truckee for a few days and had the pleasure of finding this place.
