Having just hopped off the plane after a 20+ hours of travel. We were recommended this place by the hotel concierge. It certainly did not disappoint! Awesome range of sakes. Sashimi was fresh and fantastic. We also order some maki rolls and tempura which were also excellent. Would highly recommend!!!

Great time together with colleagues... We also invited one of our Vendors, working often in Japan... He did our benchmark.... Everything was tasty and fresh.... The staff also worked hard through to give us a table ASAP. Really try it when you'll be in SanFran. Only Japanese chef behind the cooking desk...

Sanraku was recommended by the concierge at my hotel. It was very crowded and I was glad to get a seat at the bar after just a short wait. Service was fast and considering the crowd, my rolls (eel with cucumber and soft shell crab roll) came very quickly. I was impressed with the service and the speed, but not... More

Sanraku is a great find. The sushi and bento’s were well prepared. I enjoyed a bento lunch early in the week and a dinner the following evening. Prices are reasonable for both lunch and dinner. The service very friendly at for both meals. Sanraku is worth the walk if you are in the Union Square area.

Our family of 4 stayed at the Wyndham Cantebury which was just up the street. The concierge recommended this restaurant and we assumed it was because of its location. We were so pleased to discover that it is a great neighborhood restaurant with fresh food, good service and moderate pricing. We went early in the evening around 5:30 and did... More

Its a crowded place, so I highly recommend make a reservation. Signature makis are great and the beef noodles are simply amazing. Quality in food and service.

Sanraku is not haute cuisine, but provides a very good quasi Japanese experience at a reasonable price in a friendly atmosphere with good service. We were staying at a Wyndham time share about four doors away, so it seemed like a good idea, and it was. I enjoyed a terayaki chicken, which is not really traditional Japanese, but was quite...

We stayed nearby at the Wyndham Canterbury and noticed that there were at least a few people in line for a table on most evenings. Fortunately for us, the night we decided to stop in, our timing was perfect and there was no wait for a table. The sushi was very fresh. We had several pieces of sushi nigiri and... More

Great quality. Even to go orders, but simple place with fantastic fish. Did take out three nights in a row.
