Nothing special about the location (it is easy to get to) but the quality is beyond compare! Sutton X Taylor, it you go - GREAT chefs and it will be busy. Be patient and be ready for some high-end fish!

A fine home style restaurant which is very near Union Square. You must make a booking as the place for dinner is super crowded and there is usually 20 people outside without reservations. The food is fresh, fast and delicious and the prices are very moderate. I can't imagine you can do better in SF.

I had lunch here. The sushi is very good, well prepared and delivered quickly. I sat at the sushi bar and enjoyed watching the chefs professionalism. Nonetheless, unlike most Japanese restaurants, the service is hurried and not particularly friendly. You are rushed to your seats, not offered refills on ho tea unless you ask, etc. It wasn't bad, I just... More

Extremely nice and was able to accomodate a wheelchair. Loved the rolls and hamachi sashimi. We were eating late and they let us enjoy the last of our beers after hours without pestering.

One of the best sushi places that I have visit in San Francisco. Prices very good and the food is fresh. You must try it for lunch or dinner.

So I came in with an open mind regarding the Tempura Udon. I ended up comparing it the Udon noodle shop in Hawaii and I must say it compares very well. The Tempura and noodles were delicious and the soup had great flavor. My wife had the Teriyaki Salmon and she loved it too. Okay I'm going to generalize ....... More

We literally wandered into this small Japanese restaurant off the street, a group of 9 very hungry, new arrivals to the city. What a lucky find for us. They were able to seat us right away at a perfect table in their side room. The menu is fairly typical sushi and Japanese entree offerings. Everyone in our group agreed that... More

Very popular restaurant which I walked past for several days before eating there. Restaurant was full at 6pm, which obviously means it is doing well. We ordered the standard favourites, sashimi was ok, agedashi tofu was good but the best I could say about the rest was that we came away full. Service was fine but tables were packed very... More

I met a group at SFO and they wanted Japanese food. As it was 3PM many restaurants were not open, but our hotel concierge recommended Sanraku. The food was excellent, beautifully presented, ultra-fresh and prepared with care. The discerning Asian group was very happy. The place was crowded, it is obviously a popular local choice. Highly recommended.
