Went for lunch and ordered the bento box with karaage chicken and tempura. It was a rainy day and miso soup would have been nice but it is not included with the lunch. The vegetable tempura was actually mushy and the tempura sauce bland,in need of more dashi. The karaage chicken marinade was also bland. When my grandmother made cucumber... More

We stopped during a very busy lunch hour on a Saturday and the three of us were able to be seating immediately at the sushi bar. The menu is extensive and they had some value combinations for lunch specials. The sushi was extremely fresh and very flavorful! They didn't mind substituting soy paper as my husband doesn't care for Nori.... More

Well, get here early because this is a really popular restaurant. We visited for the second time. I love their menu. They have a lot of different menu options and they are very creative with their fish. They also have a good drink menu. The staff is super nice and accommodating. They seem to be in a really good mood... More

This is part of the same small chain located in Sacramento and Roseville in the greater Sacramento area. The menu is the same and so is the overall quality of the food which is excellent. The restaurant is smaller compared to the others and can be almost as noisy at times with TV screens in several places for those who... More

Loved it. Contemporary casual with great food at a reasonable price. Our server (Anthony) was so helpful, had a great personality. I ordered the Saba Shioyaki (grilled mackerel) and asked for it a little crispy. He took the trouble to make sure it was and it was perfect! Wish we had a Mikuni restaurant here in Santa Rosa.

I have great sushi, pretty good sushi, and ho-hum sushi from Mikuni. You never really know what you are going to get. Its usually good to very good (thus 3 stars) and for the price it should be. Its hopping and popular across various (white) spectrums of age and type. Service is spot on, but slightly fake feeling. Take out... More

I went here during the Christmas holidays with family. The sashimi and rolls were very good. There seemed to be many other happy diners having a good time. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and the waiting staff do an excellent job of tending to the customers.

My husband and I stopped for dinner driving through one evening and were very pleased with our experience! There was quite a long line but within 15 minutes we were seated at a small table outside near a heater. Our waiter was. Wet personable and knowledgeable! We ordered the four course meal for two and were pleased with all of... More

We where a party of 10 and the staff was awesome taking care of us. Well done you guys. We ordered sooo many plates for the table. For me the sliced ahi plate was really tasty and I would make it a regular. All sushi orders where fresh and good. The beef teriyaki was really tender. The pork ribs were... More

I love the food in Mikuni. If you like soup try their Tan Tan soup. The zig zag hand roll soft shell crab is also delicious (spicy). It is always packed and noisy on Friday nights and Saturday nights.

A cool, urban vibe balances a warm, friendly atmosphere at Mikuni's eighth restaurant. Located in the Davis Commons, right in the heart of the downtown area, this newest hot spot is within easy walking distance of the UC Davis campus.We're delighted to have been so graciously welcomed into the Davis community. On any given afternoon or evening, you'll find local families, university students, and business professionals enjoying the spectacular sushi and casual ambience-both indoors and on the charming outside patio. The dining experience is enhanced by a full bar, seven large-screen HD TVs, and original artwork featuring UC Davis students.
