“Great, greater, Sanraku!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

First german, than english.

Was für ein Erlebnis! Nicht nur, dass das Essen von ungewöhnlicher Qualität war, auch der Service war erfrischend herzlich und souverän.
Wir hatten vorzügliche Gyoza (6.00$), leichte Shrimp Tempura (11.00$), feines Sashimi (14.00$) und eine vorzügliche Auswahl an Nigiri. Wobei wir positiv über die Preise überrascht waren.
Salmon, Hirami, Hamachi waren für USA-Verhältnisse (und für diese Qualität) günstig (2.90$). In dieser Preisklasse gab es noch weitere Fischsorten. Dennoch haben wir uns ein paar delikate Spezialitäten (aus Japan) gegönnt. Amaebi (4.75$), Katsuo (5.00$) und Anago (4.75). Die Empfehlung für Sake war perfekt.
Für alle Sushi-Liebhaber die erste Wahl in San Francisco und Umgebung.

What an experience! Not only that the food was of exceptional quality, also the service was refreshingly warm and confident.
We had excellent gyoza ($ 6.00), light shrimp tempura ($ 11.00) fine sashimi ($ 14.00) and an excellent selection of nigiri. Where we were positively surprised about the prices.
Salmon, Hirami, Hamachi ratios were for U.S. (and for that quality) low (2.90 USD). In this price range, there were other fishs. However, we have allowed ourselves a couple of delicious specialties (from Japan). Amaebi ($ 4.75), Katsuo ($ 5.00) and Anago ($ 4.75). The recommendation for Saki was perfect.
For all sushi lovers first choice in San Francisco and surrounding areas

“Delicious Entre”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We both enjoyed our entres tonight at Sanraku Japanese Restaurant. Didn't feel like sushi so can't comment on that. The chicken teriyaki with crisp fresh veggies and sauce over rice was excellent, as was the udon noodles with chicken, bok Choy and spring onions. We managed to eat both with chop sticks even the noodles. Nice presentation and satisfying.

“best sushi ever ..”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

based on TA reviews and staying at the kensington park hotel around the corner, we ate here twice .. once in the evening, we had to wait about 30 min for a table and 2 days later at lunch time where we were seated immediately ..

service was efficient, based on the sushi chef's speed - nothing more, nothing less .. the deco is nothing special but we were there for the food and it was the best sushi we've ever eaten .. EVER (at least so far), especially the tamago, but not only, everything we tried was delicious, the rice just right, generous maki fillings and fresh fish, the green tea and water were complimentary .. prices are comparable to other major cities, approx 60$ incl. tip for 2p. no wine, no coffee, but that will vary depending on what u order ,,

i definitely recommend it !
