best sushi in town

I love coming here when I crave for Japanese food. The sushi in this place have a lot of fish. I always order their tempura too. I keep coming back here for more.

This is one of our first choices for eating out. The staff is super friendly, the food is healthy, the prices are reasonable, the sushi is very fresh, and the selection is great. You name it - it's here - can't go wrong. Never had a bad meal, everything is delicious, and the portion sizes are superior. This was formerly... More

Skilled chef, quiet, comfortable atmosphere. On Wednesdays and Thursdays oysters for $1 each is hard to beat. Plenty of parking

We have been patrons of Ichimoto since they took over the space from Ray's. While I was sad to see Ray's go... I love the people who work at Ichimoto! They totally make the experience and make us feel like family! In addition to being open on Monday, which is often a rarity, the food is yummy and the experience... More

Came here close to closing time. I felt bad sitting to eat since they were cleaning up and I didn't want to be "that" customer chowing down while the employees were waiting to get home - as a result I decided to take it to go. I ordered a roll which was covered in real sushi and was delicious. It... More

Get here early as it tends to get crowded and parking can be packed as well. Formerly at the location of Ray's Sushi, it has mainly the same helpful and veteran staff. They are friendly and willing to serve quickly. The sushi is fresh and has some seafood from Japan. You'll need to check the daily menu board. If you... More

I was in Hayward for the day, and looking for a place to have lunch. I stopped in at this restaurant, having eaten here many times when it was Ray's Sushi. The exterior of the restaurant looked nicer than when it was Ray's, which was promising. But the food was a little disappointing. When I walked in, I noticed a... More

Don't let the Japanese name fool you. This is not authentic JAPANESE food. Sushi meats looked good but lacked the most important factor, seasoned rice (su). Sashimi served without the artfyl slicing typically found at a good sushiya-san. Tempura you best choice. Don't go for bland soup based choices. Ray's was much better. We won't be back. Overpriced for the... More

Pretty good sushi. Used to be called Ray's sushi but got sold or bought out. Inside got a bit of a refresh and now it is Sushi Ichimoto. Overall pretty good. The fish is very fresh and the quality not bad. I small ding because it's a little more expensive than the old restaurant. So better make this a night... More

Mostly, I check hamachi for the fressment of the sushi restaurant. Here, Ray's sushi has very fresh ones everytime I went there. Maybe they are packed everyday so can have fresh food everyday. I am big fan of Titanic roll and Hamachi Nigiri. I love there and when i back to Eastbay, of course I definitely be there again. One... More
