Returned to Sanraku on a recent trip to San Francisco. Oh my, what a disappointment. The weary staff showed no enthusiasm or desire to be helpful. They seemed totally content to stand by the hostess stand and converse among themselves. We wanted some hot tea but we were told that the hot water machine was broken. Does no one know... More

So we get here and we are pumped because we love sushi and living in New Mexico is a bit of a let down on the sushi front. We ordered way too much, happily. We were chatty until we each took our first bite. Then, dead silence for the rest of the meal. The food was so good we literally... More

The sushi was delicious and service was very fast. Coming form Ontario I expected something that would knock my socks off a little more. But all in all, very good.

We chose this restaurant after reading TA reviews. Distracted by an excellent local bar we didn't turn up until after 8. The restaurant was really busy by then, but we were politely seated in the waiting area, offered some excellent sake, and then seated at the sushi bar half an hour later. It was great to watch the chefs in... More

It was almost right next to the Wyndham Canterbury SF. Nice walking distance... food to value was relatively ok for the City. It could get very busy - depending on the time.

This place is always busy (we went there several times during a recent visit). If you don't want to wait, try to get there before 6PM, The food is consistently good, and fresh, and the service is efficient. The gyoza and chicken don buri bowls were some of the best we have had. The prices were reasonable.

One of the finest Japanese restaurants I have experienced. Small, exceedingly clean and within walking distance of all the Union Square hotels Sanraku is pleasure for even the gourmet pallet. It was recommended by a friend and our hotel was only a block away so we tried it. Fortunately we were told to eat early. By the time we left,... More

Recommended my the concierge at my hotel. Sat at the sushi bar for a quick bite. Great sushi and sashimi at a good price. Service was unobtrusive and efficient. Will be back
