If you like mayonnaise and sauces and don't care if you can actually taste the fish then Mikuni is for you. Over-crowded, over-priced, and over-rated. Not just this one. I've tried all of them in town and they're all pretty much the same. If you want real sushi head over to Shige's on Madison and Manzanita.

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!

Pros: Easy to spell Mikuni

Cons: Too sceney to provide decent food

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.

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.

I just moved here & Mikuni's is the best Sushi I can find in Sac.
The Scott roll is the best (just my opinion).
The younger seaters/hostesses need to work on there customer service but everyone else is great!

Pros: Great Food, Tastes wonderful & visually pleasing.

Mikuni is okay. It's definitely not my favorite. The rolls are slightly better than average and it's super expensive and it's like wal-mart for sushi, so I can't stand by that. I boycott it... unless someone else is buying!

Definitely try the Marilyn Monroll and Trainwreck... simply delicious! The staff is very nice. Music is wonderful (for an 80's music fan), it took me back in time. The bar has a wonderful assortment of wines. Hands down, a great place with great sushi!

The food here is just so tasty! I always order a pepperfin (fresh raw albacore tuna with a light brown sauce) and a Sa salad.They have specials from the sushi bar that I cant seem to find anywhere else, like a black and white (I wont even share this with my husband!)The servers are always nice and even though they appear to be almost over-whelmed with the amount of customers,we can see they are really doing their best for every table.I can happily tell you this is my favorite japanese restaurant.

I can't say enough good things about Mikuni's. I've been to the Roseville and Elk Grove locations, and both have consistently great sushi in a fun environment. I never liked sushi until I ate at Mikuni's. What sets their sushi apart is the sauces - they are delicious! Look for the (S) after the name of the roll on the menu. The tables are rather close together in the Roseville location, but much more spacious in Elk Grove.

PROS: World Class Sushi
CONS: Can get crowded

Mikuni's has the best sushi in Sac period! Hubby and I have ventured to different places trying to find a place less expensive and busy, but we are always disapointed with the food. We always end up back at Mikuni's! It may cost a little more, and you may have to wait longer for your seat, but belive me it is well worth it! The service has always been great and they are always willing to give recomendations. The one time that we didn't enjoy something our waitress recommended she took it off the bill! We never even complained about it! I have to eat there at least once a week or I go through withdrawl! The funny thing is I was never a sushi junkie before Mikuni.

I have eaten MANY times at Mikuni's and each time has been very pleasing. I have eaten at several sushi restaurants across the country and out of them all Mikuni's is the best!

The quality of the ingredients is excellent, the service is top notch and the food will blow you away. Everything is masterfully prepared from the sashimi and sushi to the udon noodles.

As far as value goes when it comes to sushi like most things in life you pay for what you get. Good sushi is somewhat expensive but well worth it. For the most part I find the prices at Mikuni's to be very reasonable.

There is nothing below average about the sushi and sashimi at Mikuni's. Give Mikuni's a try. You won't regret it.

Anyone who lives in the Fair Oaks and surrounding areas, knows about Mikuni's. If you want sushi, then this is the place everyone recommends. The pricing and sizes are decent, but for all the hype, I was expecting world class sushi. You do get the good atmosphere and a fine dining experience. You won't be disappointed, but don't expect anything more then just a good sushi bar.

What is the problem with getting a table for xx amount of peolple but not having all of them there. They are on the way. We were the first to arrive and tried to get a table for four and were told that unless the whole party was there they would not seat us. I thought that this was a family oriented place that catered to the customers. Apparently they are only ionterested in making money.

Make it simple, "Fair" is the only word I could use to describe them, probably I was from San Francisco, there are a lot more japanese restarant way better than 'em. But on the other hand, great atmosphere...

The only downside is the hour plus wait to be seated, even on a weeknight! The Fair Oaks rolls are amazing, but I've never had a meal here that I didn't enjoy. Sushi is available "to go" if you want to cut down on your wait time. Prices are moderate and it's very "kid friendly" (read, noisy).

I've had the cheapest sushi ($1 for two pieces) to the most expensive ($90 for two pieces), and I can say with conviction that Mikuni's sushi is ordinary. It takes at least 10 years of training under master sushi shokunin (literally translated, "sushi craftsman") to become a decent sushi shokunin. From the flavor of the shari (vinegared rice), choice of neta (fish), and construction of nigiri, it's obvious that the guys behind the counter at Mikuni's have had little or no professional training. To top it all off, no Japanese restaurant with any pride would serve frozen croquette as Mikuni does. The dead giveway is its perfectly oval shape.

Long wait for table and not a lot of seating for those waiting. Restaurant can get loud and service is not great. The food is good but not great.

Good for large groups sharing a Boat of Sushi. The seared tuna with spicy white sauce is good as well, but rich.

Mikuni was the first place I had sushi over ten years ago. I immediately fell in love and have been a sushi connoisseur ever since. I lived in the bay area for several years and never found a sushi restaurant that I loved nearly as much as Mikuni. My favorite is the Spicy Johnny roll. The BBQ albacore is also extremely delicious. I can't WAIT for the new Mikuni to open at 16th and J in midtown. Walking distance for my favorite sushi, I may have just died and gone to heaven!!

Every two weeks or so, my boyfriend and I venture to Mikuni. It has become a ritual for us. We have tried a few other sushi places, none of which we believe to be half as good as Mikuni. Since we love the food so much, it is our favorite place to eat.

I've been to many Japanese restuarants before. This one is with the just okay ones. The wait for a table was long for one. Then the waitress took 10 minutes to just get our drink orders. After ordering our sushi and kitchen foods, another person brought the wrong sushi rolls. We asked and they said that was the right rolls. (the menu begs to differ) We then asked our waitress, 15 minutes later and we got the same response. Bad, very bad. Oh, by the way, I got dry old rice that was hard and crunchy with my dinner. :( !!
