I was skeptical about walking into a sushi restaurant within a mall food court, but was pleasantly surprised. Let's start with the food ..

Busy but comfortable. People always coming in for a wonderful and reasonably priced meal that was outstanding. Service makes you welcome. Will visit again and often when in San Francisco.

I ate at Sanraku during a visit to San Francisco. The sushi was excellent as well was the service. The 49'ers roll was my favorite, try it if you like Salmon. I sat at the Sushi bar and watched the masters behind the counter produce one mouth-watering dish after another. I've visited several sushi spots in San Francisco but this... More

We were recommended this restaurant by one of our reception guys. We hadn't booked and had to wait around 30 mins. The food was good, well presented and fresh and the portions more than enough. We both ordered the combo meals, a miso, a small salad, tempura prawns and veg and a main dish, approx $21 each. We enjoyed it... More

We had to wait a little bit since the place was quite crowded, but once sat, the waitresses were quite efficient - not too friendly, but effective, Japanese style! Once we ordered, the food arrived in a reasonable amount of time, and the quality was exquisite! We really had a good time dining and it made us remember the dinners... More

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
