Visit the Chinatown gate and then go for Japanese food at the Mikaku Japanese Restaurant. This restaurant serves various styles of Japanese cuisine from authentic and traditional to more mainstream, Americanized dishes. Visited by young and old, singles and families, locals and tourists, it provides a welcoming ambiance. The interior is Asian-inspired and the atmosphere is casual. Loved for its sushi, it also serves tempura, teriyaki, soba, and udon entrees. One house specialty is nabemono , which is a Japanese dish cooked slowly in a clay pot that brings out the flavor in seafood, meat, and vegetables.
****Everything was delicious. The special lunch--6 pieces of California roll, 6-8 pieces of tempura (super lightly battered, 3 of which were shrimp) and chicken teriyaki, served with soup, salad and rice--was more than enough food for $11. Service was excellent. A great value for what you get, quantity and quality-wise. I'd return again anytime.
Mikaku caters to the tourist and business crowd just outside the Chinatown gates. Sushi is not the best quality and hastily prepared, however service is friendly and efficient. Decor is minimal and the dining room is showing quite a bit of wear (could use a fresh coat of paint). With so many great options for sushi in San Francisco, better alternatives are available even within quick walking distance of Mikaku.
