Sushi was excellent. Servers attentive and courteous. Cozy and light setting. Reservations taken if you want to avoid a wait.

Great sushi, good service and decent pricing. Restaurant in General is nothing great to look at, but overall this was a very good value recommended by the Westin St. Francis.

Look no further. Sushi at Sanraku is a must try. Fresh, top notch, well prepared and quickly served for you to enjoy. This fine small eatery is always busy. From friends and families, business travelers to local. I was lucky enough to have sat next to Sammy Hagar and his lovely wife. Even celebrities experience this small local eatery and... More

The restaurant is extremely small so seating is close quarters and waiting areas are almost non-existent. Upon finishing our meal, my friend literally had to pick up a table and move it several feet to free himself from the seat against the wall. If you overlook the panic inducing claustrophobia, the food is excellent. I was eating with a former... More

I have had sushi in San Diego and Seattle. I did not find their sushi to be all that everyone had raved about. My thought was since it's on the ocean the sushi would taste fresh and delicious. I didn't find it to be any better than what I could get in Denver. Plus the service was okay, not the... More

I found the service to be okay and the food as well. The sushi was pretty good but the teriyaki chicken didn't have a good texture at all. It was very rubbery.

The only thing closer than this to true Japanese cuisine would be to turn right out of the restaurant and make the 5136 mile trip across the Pacific to Tokyo. Simply some of the freshest, best tasting Japanese food you'll find anywhere. Getting in can be tough since this is a rather small and very popular place. I was lucky... More

Jointly with some colleagues, we decided to eat at Sanraku on a friday evening. It has been fantastic experience, since the sushi we got has been one of the best in my life. We tried several kinds of rolls, including the classical California and sashimi as well and everything was fresh and juicy. Warm sake was a perfect drink associated... More
