We chose this restaurant while walking near the Hilton SF. The service was very good as well as the quality of the food. I could go back again without hesitation.

We have just finished dinner here. Really very good. Excellent in fact. Bacon wrapped salmon yakitori was a revelation! Salmon nigiri fresh, smooth & almost 'buttery', bed teriyaki good but veggies a bit cold. Overall though a great place with tasty food & generous serves of wine!

Excellent portion sizes for sushi with good taste. Fellow co-workers ordered other items off menu including lava rock meals and all prepared to perfection. Dessert was fair but think we over indulged in our main course. View of Alcatraz and Golden Great Bridge excellent. Great service.

Have been here a couple of times and enjoyed. Once sat at the sushi bar and once at a table. Service is very good and typical of Japanese restaurants. I particularly like the yakitori here. Very well prepared. The sushi was also very good. Properly prepared though the slices of fish on the sushi were on the small side. Pricey... More

Came here for the first time and it was good had the lemon-hi cocktail and chirashi sushi which was pretty good and fresh. Had the ginger creme brulee as well The yakitori was on the menu but they didn't have it that day. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary.

We went for dinner and thought it was quite expensive given the food quality. It was generally OK but since we just tried the other two Japanese restaurants in the neighborhood, we all thought that we could find similar quality of food with a lot cheaper prices at other restaurants.

great sushi and very reasonable portions at this place! the garlic pork yakitori is great (the beef filet one is good but not amazing and has larger chunks of meat -- more than we needed!) we got 2 specialty rolls, 1 california, and 1 avocado, and it was more than enough food for the 2 of us, and delicious!

So many long lines at all of the restaurants. Walked by Hana Zen and they handed me a coupon. Took a look inside. No line - got seated right away. Beautiful design of restaurant, looks right on the bay. Saw the seals that had separated from the larger group. View of Alcatraz. Service was great. Food was good.

I ordered sushi rolls and Nigiri. The fish for the Nigiri was good, but the rice was so mushy it made the rice take away the taste of the fish. I have never had rice that was this terrible. The spicy tuna rolls were also very difficult to eat. The texture of the minced tuna was just strange. Combine that... More

Wow, we had a really bad meal here. Maybe we were just there on off night but the service was slow and the sushi really lame. The salmon sashimi looked like 2 small pieces of lox. The rest of the sashimi was also mediocre (small pieces and not fresh). The cucumber/seaweed salad had a dressing on it that tasted like... More
