Jordan and I both really enjoy sushi, but so far we have not found a place in San Francisco that can hold a candle to Mikuni in Roseville. We’ve tried several different restaurants in our neighborhood, and last Saturday we went to Nara Sushi at Polk and California.
I’ll keep this short. Skip the tempura appetizer ($5) and dive straight into the fish. We ordered the chirashi ($17). The portion was generous with about 3 pieces each of 7 different fish and the quality was good. The sushi rice was also tasty. Still a little hungry after finishing the chirashi, we ordered a spicy tuna, shrimp and masako roll off the special board ($12). It was also a generous portion and quite tasty, but a bit spicy. Overall, the atmosphere was typical, the service was attentive and the fish was good – certainly the best out of the restaurants we’ve tried in our area. Regardless, we were still left longing for Mikuni and are looking forward to going back to Granite Bay for Thanksgiving (hint hint!).
