Excellent service. The 15 piece sashimi chef's choice was very fresh with an excellent presentation. My wife had the hamachi kama and it was cooked perfectly. I also had a wakame salad and it too was delicious. The only downside is lack of adequate parking.

I travel extensively, and it's frustrating to eat mediocre-to-poor sushi in Sacramento, while waiting for the good stuff in San Francisco, New York, LA, etc. Kru has a diverse menu, the quality of the food--and its presentation--is outstanding. Service is friendly, informative, and everyone seems to care about upholding a standard of excellence. Great selection of cocktails, beers, sake, innovative... More

Our first visit to their new location on Folsom Blvd. A very nice restaurant with an appropriate décor. Parking is a little limited but since we arrived right at opening a spot was available and we were promptly seated when we entered. The food was good, a little pricey, but good. The waitress was apparently new and could have used... More

Jen suggested that we give kru a try, so we went for lunch yesterday. As Jen is an architect, she was taken with the form and style of the interior, which is admittedly nice. We were seated promptly and courteously, and our server arrived shortly thereafter. At our request, our server recommended three dishes, of which we chose two. You... More

This place has the best Omakase ever! You basically leave it up to the sushi chef to give you the best dining experience in a sushi restaurant. The chef will serve you items exclusive to the Omakase menu which may include limited quantity toro shipped in from Japan that morning or special uni from Haikado. Each piece is masterfully prepared... More
