LOVE this place! Best Sushi, great people and great drink selection! It can get loud but the food is worth it. If you get there early it isn't so loud.

We eat here about 1/week for several years, usually takeout. We have our favorite dishes, which are repeatedly very good. Great veggies. Very fresh fish. A little noisy and crowded--but many patrons seem to like that. Make a reservation if you are going on the weekend.

The best sushi restaurant. We are so happy it is in our neighborhood. Take out available so if you can't wait you can enjoy it at home.

This is the original Mikuni. The fare is Japanese with a wide variety of Sushi and Sashimi all stunningly fresh and some other traditional Japanese dishes. Watch out for weekend nights as the wait can be long - but it is worth it. Service is pleasant.

I used to love Mikuni Japanese Restaurant before; however, on my last visit, I was disappointed because of the long wait even if one were to make a reservation, still there is a few minutes wait.

The original Mikuni has expanded over the years, and remodeled after the kitchen fire a few years back, and yet keeps on delivering high quality sushi with excellent service. It is our go-to place for a great sushi dinner we can always count on.

We went here on recommendation from local friends and I am so glad we did. Since being back in Australia, our sushi restaurants do not compare. Do your tastebuds a favour and make sure you go to one of Mikuni's resturants. The tuna is phenominal. I recommend asking the waitress to order for you if unsure. Their popular dishes are... More

Best to get there early or go during the non-peak hours. They have a large restaurant but it is so popular. For good reason, they have interesting rolls and menu items. Not your typical sushi - fresh fish and unique food.

This place has been our go to sushi restaurant since they first opened. The quality of the fish and the sauces continues to be excellent as they've grown the business. Just might be the best sushi spot in Sacramento.

We've been going to this restaurant for at least 15 years and finally decided to write a review. The food here has always been excellent and we have never been disappointed. The service is consistently good and the sushi is always excellent. We've tried many other sushi restaurants including other Mikuni locations but always return to this one.
