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.

We went there twice with a large group (once with 9 people, once with 5) and both times we were able to obtain a table without waiting too long. Both time I had a soup (once the Ramen Miso, the other time the udon). The soup is nice, but they put far too many noodles in it. I mean I... More

The food quality was excellent as the sashimi was fresh and its bento box was with great quality. We love the beef teriyaki and California rolls. The udon was great.

Creative sauces, attractive rolls and fresh raw fish. Eat in or outside. Great place for date night or taking company out to eat. Expect to wait a short time because this restaurant is very popular. Specials include a wide variety of dishes for one price.

I think this may be one of the best restaurants I've been to. I love the green salad with crab and the Tam Tam me in soup. Friend always order a bent box. Highly recommend and the outside eating area is a delight.

That's my favorite dish, even at a sushi house like Mikuni's. Sukiyaki (S-key-a-key; all slurred together) is more of a heavy broth with large chunks of veggies and like pieces in it. This Mikuni's is in Davis, though I have also reviewed their place in Roseville. The differences are in the type of physical plant they're in (this one is... More

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.
