Four of us had lunch on the patio. They turned on the heaters, so we were comfortable. We shared the shioyaki salmon lunch and Bento boxes that included beef curry, chicken teriyaki, teriyaki salmon, and shrimp tempura. We also shared two plates of sushi. Everything...More

I hoped this visit would be better than my last, it wasn't. It was actually worst. Started with the Agedashi Tofu/Fried Tofu. It was served in a beef broth with chopped green onions and topped with a garnish if ground fresh ginger and light horseradish....More

Outside patio seating is our preference......inside is too noisy. An excellent menu option is their dinner for two ($45) that includes several courses -- with numerous menu items to choose from for each course. Excelkent preparation.

Makunis has always been one of our favorite places to have Sushi. The staff is always friendly and food is great. Fun environment that is casual and fun for the whole family.

I'm a Vegan and only eat healthy foods, no junk. Nothing fried. Most Japanese restaurants offer nothing to my liking. They, however, went out of their way to give me a big dish of fresh steamed veggies. Will return.

Lots of good, fresh Japanese cuisine on offer here, and we especially enjoy the lunch-time Bento menu options, including chicken teriyaki, salmon teriyaki, shrimp and veggie tempura options, California roll. In short, it's a lot of food. Great variety of sushi rolls also for lunch...More

Mikuni has the best sushi around. If you are in Davis try out Mikuni. Parking lot in back or you can find 2 hour parking across the street sometimes along the road. It's a busy place with seating inside and outside. Highly recommend.

A cool, urban vibe balances a warm, friendly atmosphere at Mikuni's eighth restaurant. Located in the Davis Commons, right in the heart of the downtown area, this newest hot spot is within easy walking distance of the UC Davis campus.We're delighted to have been so graciously welcomed into the Davis community. On any given afternoon or evening, you'll find local families, university students, and business professionals enjoying the spectacular sushi and casual ambience-both indoors and on the charming outside patio. The dining experience is enhanced by a full bar, seven large-screen HD TVs, and original artwork featuring UC Davis students.
