I love it...it is true that they are heavy on the sauce and have a lot of fried options... but you can choose lighter fare... and I personally love the specialty rolls they have...it is a good place for my husband who is not a huge fan of raw fish sushi (I am though!) as we both have lots of options we are happy with.
My Favorite Restaurant – I love this place just wish we could afford to go more than once a month.
Yummy Sushi – I love their sushi bar and their delicious japanese foods. Their waiters are friendly and approachable.
Carmen Roll Lover – I love this place, the staff is the best, the food is the best, and a really good waiter will give you ideas on what to create or what to try based off your likes and dislikes.
Best sushi in town
I miss the bartender though!
Highest Quality Sushi in Sacramento – If you are searching for the freshest and finest ingredients available in the area Mikunis is your place. The staff is friendly and the service is excellent! We normally sit at the sushi bar and enjoy watching the chef's prepare our favorite dishes. My family sits down and without ordering our first item appears!!! Now that is service!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to all who enjoy authentic sushi and friendly servicce. One note you may have to wait this place is always full of patrons, mostly regulars like us!! Enjoy!
Best sushi in Sacramento – As picky as I am I was amazed to discover how impressed I am with Mukuni's sushi!! It is no questions asked the best sushi I have ever had!!! I go to Mukuni's or Taro's by Mukini's weekly and have never had a bad experience! Great customer service and great food!!!
Overrated Mayonaisse Sushi – Unless you must be seen jamming mayonaisse covered sushi in your mouth amongst the silicon glitteraty of Sacramento, go elsewhere to get some good food.
Without a Doubt Best Sushi in Sacramento. – Mikuni is not a traditional sushi restaurant. Mikuni is the definition of ?California Sushi? and is famous for their superb sushi rolls. People interested in conventional nigiri may be satisfied with Mikuni?s excellent fresh fish but a large part of what separates Mikuni from everything else is the quality of their sauces and the balanced combination of texture and taste in nearly every single roll on their menu. Some of the less than stellar reviews for this restaurant may have come from people approaching it like a normal sushi-ya but that truly does not do this gem of a restaurant justice. Abandon any snobby elitist sushi preconceptions and appreciate Mikuni for its amazingly delicious and extremely well crafted rolls. With nearly 100 rolls available at three convenient locations Mikuni is without a doubt the best sushi restaurant in Sacramento.
P.S. My favorite rolls are the Spicy Johnny, Train Wreck, and Carmen. Also the Puff Daddy, BBQ White Tuna, and Citrus Blossom are amazing non-roll options.
Good Food Overshadowed by Poor Service. – I've been to Mikuni twice now and for Sacramento, it's good sushi. The fish is fresh and tasty and they have had all the types I like such as Hamachi "Toro" Sashimi. I tend to prefer sashimi and nigiri sushi and tend to stay away from the rolls, so I can't comment on on Mikuni's rolls. As seems to be the growing trend in America, Mikuni does not offer an oshibori (hot towel) which is traditional in Japan to clean ones hands. Rather they give out an oversized moist towelette like you find at KFC. Then again, Mikuni doesn't portray itself as a traditional sushi place and I wasn't expecting it. If there is a good traditional sushi house in Sac, I have yet to find it. While the fish I've had at Mikuni has been very good, it has been overshadowed by the poor service at the Fair Oaks location. On my first lunch time visit, it was just inattentive service at the sushi bar. My second visit was far worse with the sushi chef being down right rude to my party and myself. When I weigh the quality of the food against the rude service and hefty prices, I doubt I will return. I'll just keep travelling to the Bay Area every few months to get my sushi fix.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Restaurant serves a large selection of sushi rolls and offers non sushi items including barbecue tuna and sea steak.
