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

I had the miso soup and crunch roll, skip the soup and just get the roll. It's a small place, but at 4:10 on a Wednesday we got right in.

As a woman travelling for business this restaurant was perfect for me. The service was quick and friendly and the sushi was the best I've ever tasted. Highly recommend the sashimi and sushi platter

I arrived at 12:30pm for a lunchtime business meeting. The place was very full with little room to walk and this caused some issues for the servers. One server bumped our table and our server spilled some tea while delivering it to the table. The servers just need a bit more mindfulness. Despite how busy the place was, the food... More

We walked down the block and spied this jewel, thought we'd try it, lots of people inside already enjoying their food. Oh my, it was a crown jewel. Specialty drinks, memorable soda from Japan, great choices, wonderful appetizers! We went back twice more and tried other dishes, too bad we were only in town for a week.

We had a bento box at lunch time and it was really good. I had a vegetarian version and staff were nice to accommodate my needs. It's very good value for the price you pay and also tasty!

Good sushi, fresh, and good service. Yellow tail tuna carpacchio was delicious appetizer. Pricey but no more so than anywhere else in SF. Decent servings.

We were surprised we were able to get a table so quickly on a Saturday night. Ordered an appetizer, sushi, and a combination dinner and it was more than enough food for two people. If I recall, we ordered the special clam karaage and it was just so-so. The sushi deluxe (10 pieces plus 6 pieces of California roll) was... More
