Extensive, creative menu options of sushi and other items, nice presentation, friendly servers, delicious food, just the best sushi in town. There is also another location on Hazel Avenue that is just as great. My mouth is watering as I write this! Can't wait to go back.

If you enjoy sushi, you're gonna love this popular place. 14 year old food snob grandson liked it so much we ate here a second time while in town for Sound of Music National Tour! Service excellent even though very busy, due to popularity and great location!

Outstanding. We were hear for lunch. Very good and fresh. I had a couple tuna roles, lots of sashimi. Tuna, mackerel and many more. Service was perfect. You have to get here early, i suggest as soon as it opens, it was packed in 10 min.

I used to work in Roseville and would go to lunch at least three times a week and loved it. Now I moved out of State and whenever we're in town we go there. I had dinner there on Monday with my family, all the sushi was great, we also had some rolls and soup. I would recommend their black... More

We have been eating at Mikuni since the first one opened in Fair Oaks in the early 90's. Since then they have harnessed the power of commercializing everything from merchandise to frequent-diner rewards. They have expanded and have commercial endorsements, so they are accessible to more people. The only downside is their prices. They charge SO much for sushi rolls... More

If you're a typical Californian and you enjoy the type of Sushi that is drowned in all kinds of sauces (basically Mayonase) than you'll love Mikuni. They have a very large verity of Maki Rolls just like this, many with the fake crab and Tampura Shrimp inside. The sushi is fresh as it should be, and it seems to be... More

This is really an excellent place. All the fish is high quality. We started with deep fried soft shell crab as an appetitizer which was not on the menu. The oil was over-used but the crab was full of flavor and meat. The Puff Daddy appetizer contained a crab mix-stuffed shrimp tempura with creamy house sauce, and onions. The Kaiser... More
