I come to Mikuni since 1994, first Hazel Ave then Downtown Sacramento then Roseville and now Northstar. Everytime returning from Germany Mikuni is one of the food highlights for Sushi in Northern CA. You can't be the quality and that is what counts when eating...More

I am always surprised when people are upset with seafood when you are at restaurant not near the ocean, especially sushi. In Japan you know that the best sushi is found in the coastal cities and towns. That being said, expecting top grade sushi in...More

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....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...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.

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.

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.
