Came for dinner the first night of vacation. Off season so it was quieter than usual. That said, they asked us if we (party of 2 in our 60's) wanted to go in the back where it was less crowded. Very good service, quick and attentive staff. This is a resort area, but the prices were 50% higher than the... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch and were very pleased with our experience at Mikuni's. The menu was quite extensive and the food was well-prepared. The service personnel were attentive and efficient. There is a wide selection of choices for those who are gluten-intolerant. The chef will make special allowances, e.g., to wrap selections with vegetables and avoid bread.... More

Love Mikuni in Sacramento and glad they are in Northstar now. Fabulous sushi. You will be happy with anything. Sashimi/sushi all fresh and amazing. Love the Black and white and the barbecue tuna. They get busy but still give great service.

Had dinner here with our family of 5. The atmosphere is very casual and fairly noisy. They had sports on the tv's and the place was fairly busy. The sushi was pretty good and it was nice that they had other meal choices for people who aren't sushi lovers. They also have a fun cocktail list. Our server knew the... More

I went to Mikuni late the evening I arrived at Northstar and it was the only place still open. Unfortunately, the kitchen had already closed so I couldn't order anything, but the bartender was really nice and found some miso soup so that I could put something in my stomach.

I go to Mikuni once a week when I'm at Northstar. I'm a sushi snob - lived in Japan for five years, and you can get good traditional sushi here. You can also enjoy a huge list of 'sushi' roll creations if that's your thing. People seem to love them. The menu is pretty diverse with sushi, tempura, noodles, teriyaki... More

Set against the glorious backdrop of the majestic Sierra, our sixth restaurant blends fabulous scenery with equally fabulous sushi. Located in the heart of the village near the skating rink, it boasts decor that successfully blends contemporary Asian design with the ambiance of a European mountain lodge. The pale wood on the walls is enhanced by custom east-meets-west paintings by artist Terry Flanigan, a variety of Mikuni t-shirts, and an assortment of restaurant awards that we just had to display.If you're in the mood for a high-energy experience, by all means take a seat at the bar that sits in the center of the room. If a cozy meal is more to your liking, sneak off to a quiet booth or table and relax in your own little world.
