We chose the Sanraku Japanese Restaurant because of its proximity to our Union Square hotel and also because of favorable reviews in Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The seating is limited and reservations might be helpful because this is a favorite of the locals. Our waitress was Sumiya and the other wait staff is very friendly and all assist... More

Originally from the West coast, but I have been living in south Florida for the last couple years. I was very excited to have some fresh salmon on my trip to San Francisco. At Sanraku I was not disappointed. This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel (Hotel Nikko- the best!) make sure you make a reservation as... More

We don't have a lot of excellent sushi restaurants at home and enjoyed our dinner at Sanraku. The sushi chef cut the pieces into small pieces since it was our boys first time eating it. Our entree were delicious too.

Great service too. Yellowtail was really fresh and velvety soft. The healthy Udon bowl was just what I needed for a good healthy meal on the road and it was very filling.

Craving for good sushi and my husband found them online to have very good reviews so we went. Disappointing. It was lunch so maybe the menu wasn't at par with dinner but then again it just wasn't as expected. I had the sesame chicken with shumai and california roll lunch combo and my husband had the rainbow roll. Nothing outstanding... More

The best sign of its quality was the amount of Asian people that were in the restaurant, so we decided to wait for the queue as they did! I didn't disappoint us, the tempura, teriyaki, sushi, makis... Everything was delicious!

I ate here as I was tired and it was near my hotel, but I was really glad that I did as the sushi was fresh and tasty, the miso was good, the hot food (tofu and veg in teriyaki with brown rice) was great and everything was a good price. I left there stuffed and happy.

The food is fresh, the service expeditious, the wait long. Make a reservation and all's well. The place is popular and busy, and is located on Sutter St a few streets over from Union Square. Worth it!

Don't let the atmosphere fool you. It did smell like fish when we walked in, and normally I'd walk out, but it was 9:30 PM, and most places were closing. We decided to give it a try. Boy, am I glad we did! The sushi was very fresh! Sashimi pieces were unusually big. Rice-to-fish ratio was great, even for nigiri... More
