“Wife loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Went according to recommendation by TripAdvisor. Staff very sweet and genuine, all staff spoke japanese so presumably all genuine/authentic dishes, food fantastic (We had gyoza, sashimi, wafu steak entree, tempura udon soup and green tea ice cream for dessert). We sat at the sushi bar for dinner (about 6pm to 8pm) had the opportunity to watch the sushi chefs at work, they were friendly enough to chat to us when they had moments to rest. Highly recommended!

“Great sushi, fantastic atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Came here on a Friday night and was lucky enough to grab seats at the bar. There was locals sitting on either side of us. Good sign and made for a great night. They both were suggesting thing to eat, beers to try, etc. Sushi quality was great and chefs were quick and fun. The ladies to our left even bought us a big beer, her favorite brand. Loved this place and can't wait to come back.

“Excellent sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Fish was melt-in-your-mouth fresh. Go early or have a reservation. It is very popular. For us, the best seat in the house is the sushi bar. Watching the chefs work and interacting with them is part of the experience.

“Had to try it again...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We ate at Sanraku Metreon and were staying close to the Sutter so tried this location as well. The food was excellent and the staff were really friendly and fun. We went back there again several nights later and they were packed but we still had a wonderful experience.
