Great food - came for a second

Fantastic food and very reasonably priced. The long(ish) wait was worth it. We came for a second. Fresh and very tasty selection of sushi and other dishes. Highly recommended.

Great sushi, but pricey. $85, 2 people, nothing excessive, no liquor. Service was rushed, but prompt. Wait was about 20 min, nothing crazy.

They salmon skin roll tasted of bleach. The rolls were poorly made. Far better sushi to be had. Not worth the forty five minute wait

I am happy I got to try this place out. My hotel was only 2 blocks away, so I was lucky. Came here right at 5:50PM and the 1st ones in line. I recommend coming early, because it gets busy very fast. The place was cozy with great music. Food was delish and I fell in love with the Pokemon... More

There most likely will be a wait to get a seat at this joint. It is very popular. The rolls there are really good though. I had the Philadelphia, Crunchy Crab, and Volcano rolls and those made the wait well worth it. The ambiance is one of a trendy restaurant so if you are into that type of scene, then... More

Don't let the dark entrance put you off, this place has amazing food and an excellent atmosphere. We really felt we experienced the trendy side of San Fran eating here. There was a wait for a table but it was worth it...great sushi!

We had an excellent meal of well prepared and delicious sushi. After finding this little gem tucked away, we did have to wait in the stairwell of the entrance of the restaurant for about 20 minutes for a table. It was worth the wait. The food was fresh and well prepared. The funky basement atmosphere was great and matched by... More
