the lineup out the door around mealtimes tells the story. the food here is fresh and tasty, appealing to both the eye and stomach - promptly served with the sort of attentive service you'd like all restaurants to have. it does get crowded at peak times.

My boss took us there for lunch. Once again I ordered the sushi lunch special. The chef did a wonder job on my lunch. For sure I would go there when I think of Japanese food.

This was a nice surprise as it's located in a strip mall in downtown Lafayette. Of course, in Lafayette this means it's still incredibly elegant! The sushi menu was big enough and they had some nice preparations. Not much liquor other than Japanese beer and saki. The fish was fresh and the poke presentation was unique.

Went her for dinner with a friend, diners wait by the door, and grab the first table that frees up. We ordered sushi, the fish was fresh, the sake was very bitter, a side of broccoli was over cooked, the sushi was good not great. Portions were small, and prices were a bit high for Lafayette. Service was slow, but... More

We've been going here for sushi for the past 4+ years. They always have a nice selection of fish, thoughtfully prepared, with very attentive service. The only problem is that it is very popular and the restaurant is on the small side so there is usually a wait. If diners are paying attention, they eat, pay, and leave; however, there... More

THE BEST OF LAMORINDA (Lafeyette, Moraga, Orinda)!! My wife and I have enjoyed the Blue Ginko for the last several years. We have eaten sushi in New York City, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and every other sushi restaurant locally, and we can't wait to get back for some REAL sushi at the Blue Ginko. We're sorry that some... More

we like to try all the sushi places but we keep on coming back to our local sushi favorite. the fish is always fresh- there are special on the board. The restaurant is small(in a shopping center) they have recently added some outdoor seating. We eat the rolls and well as the raw fish. It is all so good.

A pleasant neighborhood restaurant in a friendly community shopping center. Fish is fresh and tasty. The "ahí poki" is a great arrangement of the tastiest chunks of tuna served in an ice cream sundae bowl above a crisp green salad. Ask them to add a bit of cubed avocado---yummy! Salmon Teriyaki--a huge serving, fresh and flaky, with an average teriyaki... More
