busy place

Suprised at wider selection of foods and drinks. Prepared sashimi and sushi freshly. Tempura was also nice. The store is approchable from Wharf.

This small, no frills place has a nice feel, friendly service, and great sushi. We arrived at happy hour so we enjoyed a few treats before dinner. Their chirashi was good though we enjoyed their rolls more. Definitely try the specials (posted on the wall). Anything with the foie gras is good but their scallops were amazing. The Buffalo and...

This is unpretentious sushi that is great quality, good price and in very low key setting. I've been here more times than the unfiltered sake I drank allows me to remember. Service and food are excellent, has limited seating which is not such a bad thing.

We recently had a very good lunch in this unpretentious restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the Sashimi Combo, the Dinner Set and the New York plates, accompanied by several glasses of draft beer. An excellent price/quality relationship, with friendly and efficient staff, this restauran,t is recommended.

I've had the pleasure of working and living in NYC, Portland, ME, Florida, etc...and ALWAYS make searching out a neighborly, friendly sushi place, which holds a good standard of quality & fair prices, a priority!!! Sushi on North Beach is a Stellar Example of just that!!! I've gone quite often in the past 2 months since moving here and have... More

We chanced upon this place with our 2 kids after a long day's travelling from London. The staff were really friendly and served up a sushi feast quickly. Pretty good value too (at least compared to what we're used to in London).

This is a small, neighborhood restaurant and so can be crowded, and noisy at times. The night that we went the service was a little spotty and slow, as the restaurant was quite busy. The shrimp and vegetable tempura was excellent with a light and crispy batter. We both ordered Chirashi and, while it was good, it wasn't the best... More

We were in San Francisco for a 3-day weekend after having focused on seafood and Italian cuisine, it was time to lighten up our diet with something simple and fresh: Sushi. We had passed a place on Grant Street in Chinatown which was called Sushi Boat and featured a moving conveyer of different rolls etc. But internet reviews of the... More

It's a small and somewhat noisy restaurant -- the evening we were there, a table of screeching young girls with their fairy godmother made dinner less than pleasant -- but the food is great, the location easy to reach, and the general atmosphere is pleasantly funky.

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
