I would go back if I were hungry for some good rolls, the soup was delicious, the tempura was very light and tasty, and the hot sake and tea helped my cold disappear
3 rolls between 2 people and only 7 pieces eaten. Not fresh, nor tasty. Big letdown to say the least. That's the short version. The long version. Seeing this was a roll house, me and my wife checked local ratings, saw this option and went for it. Love roll, a sea weed roll and the please don't try this, Lion... More
Decided to explore Japan Town and had a late lunch (2pm) at Kippu with my best friend on a very hot day in SF. What a lovely surprise. You are welcome with a smile from start to end. We ordered Bento Boxes and it was really nice and tasty + 2 drinks . The lovely waitress was so nice and... More
After a long flight, this was a perfect lunch. The staff was very friendly, the food delicious and fresh and the service was great.
Ordered 4 special rolls and udon noodles. Dinner came with small salad & miso soup. Although the greens were slightly brown the dressing was quite good. Not that usual ginger orangey stuff.

We decided to stay just at the western edge of Japantown. Today, for a late lunch we went to Kippu. The food, the service, and the ambience were very good and so was the price. It was our first meal in this visit to San Francisco. We would definitely return.
Happened upon an informal restaurant in Japantown. Food was excellent and filling. Staff were busy but friendly. Had the sashimi-sushi platter; the sushi was fresh and tasty. I would definitely return.
Our first evening in San Francisco I wanted sushi. This place caught my eye, because of all the colorful pictures of their specialty rolls. I ordered 2, I think it was the Shrek & the Mexican. They were both good, and I also liked that you got a small salad and soup with your meal. Prices were very reasonable.
This is a cool place. Atmosphere was informal, especially at the bar where we could watch the chaos of the chefs at work :-) Food was tasty, highlights being the sushi roll we had as an extra to our "dinner bento" (large portion by the way!). Bags of character and friendly, affable staff.
Our family visited here as we were staying at Hotel Kabuki. Wanted someone that had good ramen and also tonkatsu plates. We were very pleased with the restaurant. Not the best service ever, but the food was great! Really enjoyed the ramen, tempura and tonkatsu.
