Great Lunch choices

Met a friend for lunch here one day and was totally thrilled that I now have an easy, inexpensive lunch spot for sushi close to home. They have several choices on their menu for lunch options. From sushi standards to special rolls as well as teriyaki, tempura, or noodles. All prepared fresh and... read more

Wanted to like this place but didn't. Sushi rolls were enormous and managed to be both insipid and actively unappealing. Samson Teriyaki was ok and the miso reminded me how much I dislike fishy water.

The Sushi chef here knows his craft. The rolls are done to perfection and the quality is top notch. This place has a great happy hour with sushi at unbeatable prices.

Excellence remains with Osaka on Castro street. Fresh uni is delicious. Soft-shell crab is a crispy delicate starter. The sad thing is that we can no longer sit at the sushi bar.

Stopped in for a quick lunch on a Sunday at it was pleasant as usual. Had a delicious Bento box were you can choose the items in the box. Teriyaki chicken was tasty, Gyoza yummy and the avocado and salmon sushi fresh. I have come to Osaka Sushi a number or times for lunch and dinner and it does not... More

The food here is good and the dishes are of a consistently high quality. It's not going to win Michelin stars, but it is tasty and good and sensibly priced.

Some years ago, Osaka Sushi in the Castro was justifiably busy. The sushi, while not inspired on the level of, say, Sushi Ran in Sausalito, was fresh and the chefs behind the sushi counter exuberantly friendly. At "Happy Hour" last night, the place resembled a morgue. The sushi was limp and tasteless (except for the Uni), although the Happy Hour... More

Osaka Sushi has been one of my regular drop in places for lunch whenever I visit San Francisco. Service can be variable, but the food is always first class and also good value for money. I usually take a mixed Sashimi plate

This is a regular stop for me. Food is good, service is good and prices are fair. Get a seat by the window for some good people watching!

We have been here several times in the last years. I like this place a lot!! When we visit SF we always go here a few times. The sushi special rolls are very nice and tasty!!! The location in the Castro is very nice! I recommend the volcano roll! But all rolls are nice.

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
