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

Awesome place. We were not going to eat here during our spring break trip with the kids but 6 different people in Northstar said it was the best place to eat. It was our best meal the whole week. The service was amazing and the food was so fresh. We shared several rolls and the kids ate sesame chicken and... More

This place is just bad! Sushi tasted like cat food. Vegetable tempura inedible, so thick and greasy and heavy. It was one of the few places open in Northstar village so my daughter and I went there for dinner. I feel sorry for the nice staff who have to work there, they can't make up for the bad food.

This was an experience! We ordered at the bar in order to get take-out, so we could sit out by the ice rink and enjoy the outdoors. Service was excellent and the bartender was quick and helpful. The food is expensive, but we certainly enjoyed some flavors we had never before encountered that were great! We ordered: Puff Daddy, Flaming... More

I have visited Mikuni several times. Sometimes the sushi is excellent, sometimes ho-hum. I wish their quality control was there as I would visit more frequently. Nice location, good vibes. Even with a two hour wait. Tip - go ice skating while you wait.

Description
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.
