This was an excellent meal nearby where we were staying. We stopped in for a late lunch, and we were not disappointed. They have a great selection of sushi and rolls, but they also have plenty of other Japanese dishes for the non-sushi fans in your group.

I love sushi and my husband loves tempura. We are never disappointed when we eat at Sanraku. The place is always crowded with locals and visitors. We visit San Francisco often and we always plan a stop at this restaurant. The staff is harried but great and the food is outstanding. I would have rated it higher but it is... More

We had delicious sushi at this spot just a few blocks from Union Square. The place was packed at 8:30 on a Thursday night, so it was good we called ahead. However, the tables turn pretty quickly if you arrive without a reservation. The place is a little cramped and certainly lively and loud. Our servers were great and happy... More

We enjoyed this restaurant. It was walking and trolley distance from our hotel. The concierge made the reservation otherwise seats would not have been available. There are people waiting outside the door.

We were knawing our arms off for a feed of sushi whilst on honeymoon in san francisco, and did a bit of research to find Sanraku around the corner from our digs near union square. We didn't book, but were lucky to be seated quickly. The place was buzzing like a mad russian's hornets nest, with the sushi chefs sweating... More

Being a self-proclaimed Japanese food expert our experience here was awesome. The sushi is the best whilst all other dishes are of an extremely high standard. Meal sizes are generous and tasty. Drinks are reasonably priced. Staff are friendly and efficient. All in all highly recommended but must book in advance. Yummm!

Some of the best sushi we've ever had. They have a great menu and all the fish that we had was fresh and great tasting. The restaurant is quite small but is very nice and it's always great being able to watch the sushi being made!

I have tried a number of sushi places over the years, but Sanraku had to be high up there, I went back after the first visit even though I was in SF for only three days and there are so many great places to eat there. The sushi taste amazing, great variety of them. The place is very well looked... More
