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

Some of the best Japanese food we have ever had. Very fresh and super quality. This is not out of the way so make sure you find it for a great meal. We had lunch one day and dinner another. To avoid the local crowds go at off peak times.

I did not take my Macbook for a trip, and I had no Japanese on my iPhone. The problem of not being able to type in Japanese is to find an authentic Japanese restaurants that the Japanese locals and tourists recommend. Unfortunately tripadvisor and yelp reviews on the Japanese restaurants are not very reliable for us Japanese (sorry! But I... More

Excellent Japanese Restaurant with a location which is close to downtown and therefore remarkable to see that in an extreme clean and friendly atmosphere such food wis offered. All meals are fresh, pure and fine tasting. Also important to mention that the restrooms are extremely clean, which in unfortunately not always the case in Restaurants

I live in NY and have sushi fairly regularly. This place was recommended by our hotel and it may have been the most delicious sushi I have ever had. The fish was super fresh and I wasn't kidding I am still talking about it. Went early with a work colleague - not sure if they take reservations but if they... More

My husband and I went to the restaurant for dinner upon reservation by our Japanese friend and his suggestion. Although I would give "above average" to overall dishes, I particularly liked the TEMPURA! It was the best one I've ever had. We ordered kinoku mochi for dessert with much expectation but it was so so. There were servers who spoke... More

We had an 830pm reservation and when we got there the place was packed you couldn't even enter the restaurant. They were behind and we had to wait probably at least another 20-30 min before we were seated. Overall the food was excellent very fresh. Miso soup was good as was California roll. Didn't care for the salad though. Chicken... More
