The name may have changed to Amami San but the address is definitively good. Second time I am dining here before an early flight from SFO and the jury is out again ! Outstanding sushi, especially variety of toro and sashimi selection. Rolls are amazing, in a nutshell the " sunshine" bomb. Btw plenty of Japanese customers ...good sign !

The service is prompt and extremely friendly. The food is extremely fresh and tasty. The music is a little sappy, but all in all a wonderful find.
