Disappointed

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... read 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

I recommend Sanraku Restaurant to all sushi lovers in the San Francisco / Bay Area. Located on Sutter Street, this place was a few short steps away from the Wyndham Canterbury hotel. My family had a short wait due to the large crowd, but the wait was well worth it. Both me and my wife enjoyed sushi, while our teenage... More

Ate here 2 nights in a row with executives from Japan at the location in the Metreon by Moscone Center. Everything was excellent. They also had Japanese speaking wait staff which made it more enjoyable my guests. Highly recommended.

My husband and I went there about 2 years ago and loved it. During my last visit we asked several people where their favorite sushi place was and Sanraku was always mentioned. Second meal there did not disappoint.
