Lively atmosphere in a deservedly popular restaurant downtown. Two sushi bars one larger and one off to the side and plenty of tables also. Varied menu with good quality appetizers, tasty special hand rolls, regular rolls, sashimi and nigiri. Basically any compliment of items you would want for a good Japanese sushi dinner.
The edimame was interestingly (for me) served cold and was served complimentary along with my very good crispy gyoza and excellent miso soup. The green tea was very good and had a scent of ginger.

There is quite a varied selection of unique rolls with a few standards. I had Bob's Roll and then selected a special hand roll with crab and shrimp that was outstanding.
Everything I had was really good so would urge you to experiment with something new.

This is more of an updated experience and not a quaint little sushi bar. Very popular and serves a good selection of sake and regular alcoholic drinks. I will definitely go there again with friends or colleagues

Love Mikunis! This location can be fairly loud but totally worth it. I ALWAYS get the Midtown Roll, so perfect. Great if you have a large party because they've got a decent amount of seating upstairs.

In town for one night and was quite impressed by this place. Definitely worth a stop in. Very large selection of rolls.

Went for dinner trusting the high rating on Trip Advisor. The experience was disappointing. Edamame arrived freezing cold (frost seen) and what I did eat before sending it back was tough. The new edamame that arrived was only slightly warmer but still not good. Definitely not a good start when the basics are sub par. I asked the waiter which rolls he recommended to which he responded there are 6 great rolls he recommends. I choose one of those rolls, the Incredible Roll. The roll was over sauced, the layers largely indistinguishable, and the taste average. The menu is too extensive in my opinion, actually intimidating. On the plus side the venue is nice.

Mukini's is the best of the best. Their food never disappoints. My favorite isn't even the rolls. Puff Daddy can't be beat! Their rolls are a treat to the taste buds, a meal to be savored!
