Sushi Main Street has two adjoining restaurants. The sushi bar in the restaurant is the best. Great selection of sushi and japanese dishes. They also make killer rolls and great vegetarian selections. Sake and Beer selections are terrific and make the dining complete. Service is laid back at times, but hopefully you will be too after a drink and appetizer... More

There are two locations, one a bar on Main and the other a restaurant on the side street. Supposedly both have the same menu. We ate in the restaurant, which was not crowded. Hot sake and miso soup were fine. Salmon miso soup was too large and full of bones and cartilage. For all sushi items: Extremely tough seaweed wrap!... More

We all took the set lunch, which was only $10.95 - choice of main course accompanied by salad and a California roll plus miso soup. Good value. Food was average - not bad but not great. The tempura was good, but salmon teriyaki quite dry. The chicken teriyaki was just a small piece of chicken breast pan fried with teriyaki... More

The restaurant itself is unique - asian influenced decor with driftwood furniture and poured concrete - I loved it. The food was superb - the sushi options are quirky with silly names (sexy me) but the combinations of flavors are truly outstanding - literally some of the best sushi I have ever had. Fair prices, good service and a great... More

This place still makes the best rolls anywhere! Their caterpillar roll is still my favorite. The dragon roll was good but not worth the $13; next time I’d skip and just go with another cheaper and better tasting caterpillar roll. I went for lunch on a Saturday and it was surprisingly fairly empty. Great decorations inside and what a beautiful... More

Sushi Main Street (the smaller restaurant on Main St. itself) is where I take friends for lunch when in HMB. Japanese food, service, and bento prices are unbeatable during lunch time. The Asian decor is inviting and my friends are always pleasantly surprised by the venue. When someone is visiting the area, Sushi Main Street is a definite favorite when... More

The table was extremely dirty. The waitress was very slow, disinterested and borderline rude. Some things we ordered were never delivered. The food was soggy. In my book, this was a grand slam home run. If you *wanted* to create a disappointing experience, I don't know how to top this one.

Sushi Main St is a locals favorite. We have dined here for over a decade and the food is consistently fresh, delightfully eye pleasing and delicious. If you manage to get one of the long time servers, you are in for a treat. Love the sweet woman who serves the front side dining room, facing Main St., in the evenings... More

These guys were real close to a 5 star review, but I can't quite justify it. The sushi here is really good, not superb, but definitely above average. They offer an impressive range of rolls. All of them were good. They also have large beers (the Rogue brown ale is tasty and paired well). Everything was very fairly priced ($45... More

We visited this lovely restaurant on our first evening in Half Moon Bay. The waitress made us chose between the two empty table they had and we opted for the one close to the entrance door, as the other one was very close to the Brazilian musicians playing. We ordered some sushi and sashimi, plus my favourite - Japanese sea... More
