Sushi platter, udon, and combo platter were mediocre. Waiters were busy; but neglected refilling drinks, and forgot to serve dessert until told at least twice. Waitress picked up plates, before all maki pieces were eaten; which was extremely rude. Overall experience was disappointing, and the services need to improve.

Yes, the sushi and maki rolls were indeed excellent and very fresh. And when you see the many Japanese people eating there you know the food must be good. So why not the maximum rating: mostly because of the uninspiring 'canteen-like' setting. Although this is certainly not uncommon in Japan as well it was a bit too basic for me.... More

Our family of 4 was in San Fran for a couple of days and had the opportunity to meet up with another family from Vancouver while in town. We were craving sushi and checked Trip Advisor for Japanese in San Fran. Sanraku came us as #2 in the area and had excellent reviews. They didn't open until 4pm so we... More

We waited about 15 minutes for a table at 9:00 on a Tuesday night. After ordering our food - the service was minimal - we didn't see our server much after that. Two people - one app, chicken udon, two rolls and two drinks all for $70.00. We had an unusual experience with the bill. When they brought the check... More

Sanraku does not look like much from the outside and the tables inside appears a bit packed but it's well worth the meal. Sashimi portions are generous but not big and fish flavors very good. All for a reasonable price and served in a minute without pressure. The sashimi chef selection was diverse with classic yellowtail and tuna, a salmon... More

Really good Sushi! You will be happy to get a seat at this busy sushi restaurant:) My husband always gets shashimi and was really impressed by the big fresh pieces, Miso soup was not too salty and good.

Stopped in for a late afternoon snack after an early lunch. Since we were here at off time (3:30), the restaurant was quiet and service was very friendly and appreciative. We sat at the bar and enjoyed two roles...one special with Tuna and the Salmon Crunch. Both rolls were delicious, with the Salmon being the stand out. Nice presentation, fresh... More

I'm a bit of a sushi snob but I'd put this place in my top five, and I've been to Japan a couple times. We ordered the Sakura option which is a bit more of a top-shelf omakase experience. We also had some of the best o-toro I've ever tasted, smooth as butter. Best meal we had in San Francisco,... More

Don't go to Sanraku looking for TLC. The service is abrupt and no-nonsense, but it is efficient. Clearly the staff was trying to move people in and out during the lunch hour. That's fine, because the food was well worth it. For $11, I got a heaping plate of chicken teriyaki, preceded by a small salad and bowl of miso... More
