I met a group at SFO and they wanted Japanese food. As it was 3PM many restaurants were not open, but our hotel concierge recommended Sanraku. The food was excellent, beautifully presented, ultra-fresh and prepared with care. The discerning Asian group was very happy. The place was crowded, it is obviously a popular local choice. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is conveniently located near Union Square. The food is good and very reasonably priced for San Francisco and location. I had the Bento box at lunch with miso soup, salad, edamame, tempura, rice, glass of wine for $25 including tip! I would go there again!

It was a nice place for an informal business dinner. After a quick look around I decided to give Sanraku a go and it turned out to be a good choice. The place is relatively small in terms of seating capacity so it will fill up quickly. I had the luck of being able to find a table without having... More

Everything is light and yummy! We ordered the sweet shrimp nigiri, and it was outstanding! Fresh authentic Japanese food, not too Americanized. Will go back.

Great place for sushi. There is always space to sit, either at bAr or table, so dont have to wait like in ryoko next door. Friendly staff, quick service, good sushi. Had the sushi and sashimi dinner. Great value as well.

I asked my Hotel to recommend me a Japanese restaurant not to far as we were short on time. We had not booked but were lucky enough that there was space at the sushi bar. I ordered various types of sushi rolls for the five of us and all I can say is we are still dreaming of what we... More

I enjoyed this restaurant so much when I visited with my brother-in-law in June that I went again when I travelled with my family in September. Usually second visits disappoint, but not on this occasion. Although the restaurant was busy, as on the last occasion I visited, we were seated quite quickly. Service was excellent. We chose the excellent value... More
