This is my mom's go-to place for sushi. I had the mixed green salad but didn't love the dressing - too much peanut oil. I then had the salmon and avocado roll with brown rice in soy paper - just the way I like it. Mom had a tempura plate which she loved. Tiny busy place. Worth it if you... More

Had dinner here late on a Sunday night. The food was fantastic. We ordered a range of dishes (sushi and sashimi) and stayed with the California rolls. The first person to taste it said "this is really good". The rest of us then tucked in and each one of us were of the same opinion. Some in the group said... More

I wanted an early dinner and fancied sushi: Sanraku was another in a line of good recommendations from the Fairmont concierge. As a solo diner I was sat at a bar by the chefs. Ordered a variety of sushi and sashimi, all really good, with a pleasant house Chardonnay, then good green tea, and really enjoyed it. Even though I... More

Great little restaurant not far from Union Square. The sushi and sashimi was on par with anything we've had. The udon was not as stellar, but that was probably more preference than preparation. Mostly locals in there, which for me, is a good sign. Good service and was reasonably priced.

Amazing food considering the mid-range price. We had the Sushi platter and the combination menu (Sashimi plus Chicken Terriyaki). Despite the delicious Terriyaki sauce, you could taste that the chicken had been on the grill... it was outstanding! The wait staff was very friendly and not pushy, considering the line of people waiting to get a table. I recommend reserving... More

We only tried the sushi and sashimi, not the other entrées, and the quality was very good. We got Sake with it and imitated what we saw at our neighboring table with a group of Japanese (always a good sign, to see them eat in a Japanese place), the glass in a box topped off and overflowing. What fun! And... More

Recommended by our hotel concierge at the Hilton. We had a fabulous meal. Tried some of the Sushi as well as several entrees. Tempura was excellent. King crab roll outstanding. Prices fair for the big city and certainly a bargain compared to several of our other meals. Highly recommended.

I got a seat at the bar looking onto the chefs preparing the sushi and sashimi. The quality of the food being prepared looked fantastic, especially the california rolls. Unforunately my meal didn't quite live up to expectations. The sashimi starter was excellent. However my unagi donburi arrived before I'd even got half way through the starter. The unagi was...

Saw all the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to have dinner here. Had to wait ~20 minutes for a table - worth the wait. Had tempura to start - very good - crispy and not greasy.
