This busy restaurant had about a 10 minute wait. Service was prompt and helpful. The sushi, shashimi soup salad and teriyaki were fresh and delicious. A fun place to eat and it didn't break the bank.

I dined in Sanraku solo. This restaurant offers a fair Japanese meal, including good looking sushi (didn't taste but hope to do so next time). I always taste first the missô soup as a hint of how good the Japanese food can be - and I liked it here. This time I had Tonkatsu (crusty deep fried pork filet, with... More

We have been directed to Sanraku by a local Japanese and we did not regret it. Yes, it's not a cheap sushi place, yet it's not over the top expensive. Portions are nice size and everything we had was very fresh. We tried 10 different nigiri, plus some sashimi, couple of special appetizers (which were very good) plus had an... More

A great sit down place to go for Sushi and many other Japanese dishes. Quite small but worth a bit of a wait. Service was quick and food was very good. Fish was very fresh!!

Had some maki rolls, nigiri and mochi. Dassai sake for drinks. The rolls seemed a bit sloppy, but with good flavor. The nigiri was fresh, and tuna was good quality. Mochi was good, though personally I prefer them to be charred on top before serving. The service wasn't very attentive, but it was busy, so it's to be expected. Overall... More

We had high expectations due to good reviews and high price level, but we were disappointed. There were nothing wrong with the sushi, but it is not super good either. The salmon teriyaki was overcooked and dry. The ice cream desert was unfortunately tasting bad. And maybe worst of all, the service was really rushed and the most important thing... More

A really good Japanese restaurant: I have spent time in Tokyo and my Tokyo friends tell me that San Francisco is one of the few cities outside of Japan where you can get good Japanese food, and Sanraku does not disappoint. Non high end Japanese restaurants in Tokyo are usually about food rather than ambiance, and plain is a good... More

Conveniently located! Went on a busy Friday without a reservation. Had a bit of a wait but not too long. Was sat at counter and able to watch the chef's prepare. Great evening!

I decided to order a to-go order. I called the number on the website but nobody answered so I thought that maybe they do not do to-go orders. There is no mention on the website that I could find. I arrived around 12:20pm and ordered 4 maki rolls. I waited 30 minutes for my rolls. The restaurant wasn't completely full,... More
