Quaint & great food

Large fresh cuts of sushi. Very impressive. You get a lot for your $$. Kind of small and cramped dining area but worth it. Miso soup the best I've had.

Everywhere we go we check out Japanese restaurants, it's our favourite food and by a long margin the one we eat the most. This restaurant was close to us at dinner time and we went for it, it doesn't look great from the outside but it did have good reviews on TA. The food is very inexpensive for what you're... More

We enjoy this small friendly sushi restaraunt. The fish is always fresh and tasty. Love the addition of foie gras in several dishes. Wait staff is very helpful and quick with responses to questions on items. If your in SF make this a stop every time. I would add the foie gras to all the sushi items if possible or... More

Wandered into here one evening as I can't resist sushi and it looked popular. Food was great and lots of it and price was great. Would definitely go back.

This restaurant was recommended by my check in clerk at the hotel. It was a short walk away from the San Francisco Marriott fisherman's wharf. The food was terrific and the prices phenomenal!! Staff was very friendly. Highly recommended! Don't miss the happy hour! Highly suggest the sushimi bowl.

Was looking for a spot to eat near pier 39 etc, read the reviews for this place and thought we'd give it a go. Service was excellent - didn't feel rushed at all but was checked on every now and again. Sat at the bar and watched everything being made fresh. Food was delicious and really reasonably priced. Will go... More

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.

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.
