Thanks to TripAdvisor which led me to Sanraku. On Memorial Day the restaurant was bustling. I sat at the counter , received prompt, courteous service. The good reviews were spot on. Reasonable price for very good sushi. I would recommend it!

This is an honest, and way above average sushi joint. It's a great value, fantastic sushi and menu, but not quite at a great all around level that'd leave you blown away impressed. Definitely worth a stop and excellent food but just not quite the 5 star level. Maybe it's the lack of romantic feel or intimacy here, more of... More

Pretty good (not great) food and a good value - especially when compared to other restaurants in San Francisco. The hostess (or senior waitress) at the door was rude. After sitting down, we almost wanted to leave but the waitress working our table was pleasant. I also had the feeling their restaurant was focused on 'turning tables' quickly. We had... More

It was an original experience! Great fresh fish and this tasting saki... Try the little and different entrees and small plates. They have still a special menu with the fresh fish in the period and you can order different sashimi and sushi.

we visited this restaurant in san francisco. the food is good and fresh. this is why it is packed every night and you have to make a reservation. the value is also reasonable compared to many others. however the service is bad. the lady that "greets" you is extremely rude. she looks like the senior waitress there as there is...

We entered this great little place near the Nob Hill neighborhood shortly after 2:00pm and by the time we "rolled" out it was nearly 5:00pm! The place remained at full capacity our entire time there and we can understand why. The sushi is über fresh and we tried things we have never tried before; like hamachi toro flown in from... More

Great service, traditional Japanese, good prices. Portions are modest but tasty; dishes could reflect more art form but not necessary re: quality presented.

The food is really excellent. We had various sushi, sashimi and a couple appetizers. The fish felt extremely fresh and the makis just tasted great. The place is always busy, although there is enough space for a lot of table. The even more amazing thing is that we waited so very little. He atmosphere is ok, nothing world class. But... More
