For the price we paid, we expected something closer to Japan grade food. The tempura was chewy, not crispy, the sashimi quite ordinary and nigiri completely tasteless. Temperature of the rice was too cold. Also for the price we paid we expected real wasabi, not powder reconstituted stuff. The Sake wine list is very extensive.

Wonderful sushi and sake in a bustling and friendly atmosphere. Well-prepared with the usual eye toward beauty as well as taste. Service was excellent and very well-informed about the menu and the subtleties therein. The food is pricey, but really among the best sushi I have ever had. was here a few years ago and had a similar excellent experience

Upscale Japanese restaurant in San Francisco. Excellent food, esp. the sushi/sashimi. Great presentation. This place is quite expensive and you can expect to pay over $100 per person. Ambiance is great. Service is fast and efficient but not overly friendly.

For the money that we paid (100$ per person), the service that we got was very very lousy. Inspite of a reminder, the server forgot to get our main course. When we asked them to cancel our dish, they apologized and requested us to have it. But then, they took forever to clear our table and check whether we needed... More

I had never even heard of this place, but i'm sure glad we found it! The freshest sushi, and the most delicious dishes we have had in a Japanese restaurant. We shared many dishes between the 6 of us dining, and every single one was fantastic! The ribs are to die for!

We are not really into Japanese Food.....so, we didn't know what to order that we just had 3 appetizers for dinner. I can say it's pricy for a Japanese Restaurant.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
