Good Food, Excellent Service

We decided to eat here because it was close to our hotel. The service was excellent and the food was good. We started with a Miso soup that was tepid and needed to be reheated. We then had a couple of sushi rolls that were very good. We also had a bowl of grilled salmon yaki soba that was also... read more

It was fast, it was affordable, it was delicious. My boyfriend and I started out with the gyoza and lucky stars then each had our own role. It was more than enough food and including each of our drinks was less than $50. Date nights in SF rarely come in under that. This will definitely be our neighborhood sushi spot.

Walking around Civic Center, found out a little door that led me to the nice restaurant! I was really after a nice sushi bar with well selected Fresh Fish and perfect slices of sashimi! They have it! Also they have a really great service, polite and warm.

A great local spot, only hamstrung by the lack of parking, particularly on friday night. The sushi is great, with a good variety, but it's the rest of the menu that puts this place on the above average. They get the tempura just right, which frankly isn't common. The service is good, friendly, and their recommendations are worth following.

There is such a wide variety of sushi to choose from--all made fresh at the bar of course. Easy access too on one of the main thoroughfares of San Francisco. Parking is a hassle, just like everywhere else in San Francisco, but they have free valet parking for you right at the front door! You cannot ask for anything more.... More

Food was fresh, service was attentive, menu offers good variety for the whole family. I went there with two kids (3 and 6 years old) and had no problem at all to find something to please them. Very good option in Castro. Just note the name of the restaurant changed to wasabi bistrot.
