If you're at Northstar and wanting some sushi, this is a great place. I'm not a huge sushi fan, but my kids are. Not really knowing a lot about sushi, or sake, I asked a lot of questions. Our server was very nice and patient. He took the time to answer all of my questions. We ended up with a... More

We're from the Sacramento area, and so Mikuni's for us brings on the warm, fuzzy feelings of familiarity. They do not disappoint. The waiter (Tommie) obviously saw that we were with kids on the cusp of decompensating due to being awake beyond their bedtimes, and dishes seemed to show up extra quickly! And they were bussed just as quickly! And... More

We stopped in here for dinner on a Friday night at about 8:30 after ice skating. We got immediate seating at a table. The hostesses were very friendly. Our server, Andrew was very attentive. He took our drink orders and brought waters and made recommendations for an appetizer. The food was good. We ordered the seaweed salad, some miso soup,... More

We had fairly low expectations as most restaurants in ski resorts are overpriced tourist traps. Mikuni has really good sushi, including excellent Uni which is a pretty good benchmark for freshness as its the hardest to source and keep.

A group of 10 of us ate here for dinner. We had a mix & match of rolls. All of us voted the Incredible Roll as our favorite sushi roll. The sushi was all very fresh and truthfully, we really liked every roll we all tried. The veggies were fantastic on the chicken stir fry and they had several fun... More

I am not a big fan of Asian food, nevertheless I had a good meal in this restaurant. The atmosphere is average and food was OK. I personally prefer the Rubicon.

Food was great! Unfortunately I missed a photo of the grilled hamachi which was superb! Service was excellent but I just wish they had more hot soup based entrees for the cold season.

The waiter, Sawyer, was very helpful with his suggestions for Sake and the service was excellent! This was the biggest hamachi kama we ever had and it was cooked to perfection. Everything was great here - fast attentive service, excellent food quality, family friendly place.

We drove over from Truckee to Northstar for lunch and were not disappointed. Because the restaurant is located in Northstar Resort, parking was a bit of a walk away. The menu was quite large - lots of choices for both sushi and cooked food, plus a full bar. We had a roll with 3 kinds of tuna and a spicy... More

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.
