Authentic Sushi

Authentic sushi restaurant in the heart of Silicon Valley. Went there for lunch and got a seat at the counter without any reservation. Very kind staff - good choice and quality of fish with respect to sashimi. I will go there again to try the makis and nigiris.

Enjoyed eating dinner with my husband. Very clean and food was amazing. Do not over order or you'll have to throw away your food.

Fuki Sushi is one of the top Japanese restaurants on the peninsula, if not the very best. All of its classic offerings are perfection, but it excels in creative, innovative, imaginative pairings of unlikely items and flavors which actually dazzle the diners, many of whom come for the sheer pleasure of the chefs' inventions. The sushi is always fresh and... More

15 minute wait for a table; 15 minute wait for a server; 40 minute wait for oily, tepid food. We were told the wait for sushi was 45 minutes so we ordered cooked food... Took almost as long. Tough teriyaki chicken: small portion; tiny bowl off rice.. This is Japanese food?? Good luck to the 5 star reviewers... I wonder... More

My son waited 15 minutes for his basic meal of rice and teriyaki chicken. I had to walk to the other server to get his food prepared. Food tasted great - overall service is lacking and waitstaff has some slow people who need motivation and energy. Nice place - but be clear what you want

This place is always packed. Reservations are required unless you are a singleton angling for a seat at the sushi bar. I have been there multiple times over several years. I also lived and worked in Tokyo for two years, so I know my sushi. Everything and anything you order here will be perfect, among the best you've ever tasted.... More

The decor is lovely and the service excellent but.... That is where it stops. I have no idea how this gets top ratings in Sushi in any town. I ordered the #6 which is letting the chef chose. Big mistake. There was very little appetizing in box and most I had a hard time telling what it was. Most pretty... More

Extensive menu with high quality and fresh sushi. Now my favorite sushi place in the south bay that I've been to. They have gluten free options and will give you gf soy sauce. I recommend this place and will be returning. Good service.

This is probably one of the best sushi I ever had. I had the sushi selection with rolls, sushi and sashimi, everything was fresh and delicious. Highly recommended

Food was brilliant. The first waiter was hard to understand, and also didn't understand us. The second one was great. We would have wanted to try something new, but language was a barrier, so we ended up ordering our usual sushi. A shame, cause it was good.
