Nice Japanese food

This restaurant is on the corner Van Ness Ave en Vallejo street. Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff, good sashimi, sushi, gyoza and tempura. Good assortment of Japanese beers for reasonable prices. Good place!

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.

Really delicious sushi. We bypassed a trendy, expensive "sushi" restaurant to come here, and we were very happy we did. Sushi chefs made high quality rolls, and our waitress was attentive and kind. We sat at the sushi bar by the way. The Romeo and Juliet roll and the 49ers roll were our favorites.

We enjoyed some take out from the restaurant. While we waited we could sit at the bar and enjoy a Japanese beer. Prices are very reasonable and meals substantial. I love Japanese food and this was a great find so close to Pacific Hghts Inn.
