Safe and fast In times of low-carb, Sushi seems to be the last Man standing in the high carb area. Honestly speaking the California version with all the mayonnaise is better for your mind and your soul then for your hips. Oh sorry this is a review on not a food blog... Sanraku is a typical Japanese restaurant with sushi.... More

We visited here our first night in San Francisco after seeing the great reviews. We were seated quickly however we were quite early for dinner. I had the soft shell crab appetiser and then sushi for dinner - the salmon avocado roll was particularly good. My husband, a non sushi fan, had the sesame chicken which he said was great... More

We picked Sanraku after reviewing the stellar reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Initially we had a reservation for 8:00 pm and called to change it to an earlier time. Little did I know that there are multiple locations in the San Francisco are and the listing in the internet was NOT the one where I had... More

This busy restaurant had about a 10 minute wait. Service was prompt and helpful. The sushi, shashimi soup salad and teriyaki were fresh and delicious. A fun place to eat and it didn't break the bank.

I dined in Sanraku solo. This restaurant offers a fair Japanese meal, including good looking sushi (didn't taste but hope to do so next time). I always taste first the missô soup as a hint of how good the Japanese food can be - and I liked it here. This time I had Tonkatsu (crusty deep fried pork filet, with... More

We have been directed to Sanraku by a local Japanese and we did not regret it. Yes, it's not a cheap sushi place, yet it's not over the top expensive. Portions are nice size and everything we had was very fresh. We tried 10 different nigiri, plus some sashimi, couple of special appetizers (which were very good) plus had an... More

A great sit down place to go for Sushi and many other Japanese dishes. Quite small but worth a bit of a wait. Service was quick and food was very good. Fish was very fresh!!

Had some maki rolls, nigiri and mochi. Dassai sake for drinks. The rolls seemed a bit sloppy, but with good flavor. The nigiri was fresh, and tuna was good quality. Mochi was good, though personally I prefer them to be charred on top before serving. The service wasn't very attentive, but it was busy, so it's to be expected. Overall... More

We had high expectations due to good reviews and high price level, but we were disappointed. There were nothing wrong with the sushi, but it is not super good either. The salmon teriyaki was overcooked and dry. The ice cream desert was unfortunately tasting bad. And maybe worst of all, the service was really rushed and the most important thing... More
