We enjoyed both sushi and an entree here. Nice little restaurant that was very crowded but, with reservations, we were seated immediately. The sushi was good, but nothing too special. I had a noodle bowl as my entree and it was simple, but tasty. While the food was pretty good, I would not opt to return here with all of... More

I stopped by here with a colleague for a little sushi and a drink whilst on business. Its a pretty unassuming (though far from shabby) place at the Metreon. The sushi was really very good indeed, as was the service. Have passed here many times, this was the my first visit and have noted it as a place to visit... More

We ordered 2 of the special rolls and some nigiri, and we were not disappointed! The rolls were unique and tasty and all the fish tasted very fresh. Portion sizes were generous and the prices were as expected for sushi. We ordered the sake of the month ($10) and it was good for the price. I would definitely eat here... More

The concierge at my hotel recommend this place and I'm glad he did. Went there with two business associates (all of which are sushi lovers) and the food was excellent! We ordered three different appetizers, two rolls and some additional sushi and everyone simply raved about their food. I would have given a five star rating but had to knock... More

The best sushi and great ambiance. We walked into a very busy Sanraku on a Thursday night. We didn't have a reservation but they seated us in about ten minutes. This may not be for everyone. But, we like a place you can hear yourself think but not so quiet that everyone around you can hear your conversation. There was... More

Nice outside seatings, popular by the business people working nearby. Service was good and fast, we did not eat here at this time, only tasted a couple of Japanese beer which I would recommend to any person who is interested in different beer worldwide. It seemed that the sushi was very popular at the tables around us visiting the place.... More

It's a small restaurant and so it gets filled up quickly. You need to book otherwise you'll have to wait (we waited 30 mins - we were lucky). The food is very good and we enjoyed the sushi. Staff were limited in their communication but got us the food on time and with no fuss. Its located in a good... More

Busy Japanese restaurant apparently frequented by locals, but many tourists also find their way here, and with good reason. Without reservation a Saturday evening in september we had to wait 20 minutes before being seated. The staff is quick and attentive and the food came very quickly - contrary to another comment here, but that may be because we had... More
