The male owner is cool, the mustard chicken is a must try. It's a kind of a Sushi dive, but a Sacramento landmark.

I was staying around the corner from here and thought to try it out. It is very nondescript from the outside and inside, but the food was amazing. The fish could not have been more fresh and the Yakiniku (grilled meat) was something I have never had before, but will be looking for from now on. The owners could not... More

Stayed at Sheraton Grand Sacramento birthday 2013! They always know I asking about Chinese restaurants in walking distance or Japanese restaurants in walking distance! Walking around, I found this place! I ordered their squid dish! Came with the squid, vegetables, rice! This is one place I like the way they cook the squid, head, legs, tentacles! Not bad for $8.53... More

This little "hole in the wall" restaurant located in downtown Sacramento, CA on 10th Street between J Street and K Street (near the Citizen Hotel) has the best food for the best prices! It is smaller and cozy - the owner Alan Honda and his staff are always friendly and helpful - and the food is plentiful and very good!... More

I've been coming to Megami's for lunch and an occasional quick dinner for many years. Very reliable in terms of quality and although the line can be long at lunch, it does move quickly. The Megami Chicken is my husband's favorite - their special sauce is more tomato based than most Japanese style dishes. Good value and good service. Family-owned,... More

I've enjoyed dining at Megami for the 25 years I've lived in Sacramento. It's a great find and a lunch staple for locals. Alan, the son of the original owers, continues ownership and is the chef. A buffet setup accommodates a very busy lunch trade Monday - Friday. The service line threads thru the restaurant's seating area from 11:30 a.m.... More

I had not been to Megami for several years until a recent visit with 2 lunch companions. I remembered the food as being good, basic Japanese fare. Based on this visit, my impression remains the same. I had tempura udon and both companions sesami chicken with rice. Everyone's food was good. The place is small and a little crowded, with... More
