Zushi puzzle is one of the best sushi restaurants in San Fransisco. To maximize the enjoyment, sitting at the sushi bar is necessary. Chef Roger will guide you through a wonderful adventure of chef-chosen, consumer-influenced fish in many forms. Go only if you are willing to give complete trust to your chef, and he will not disappoint.

For the true sushi lover! Quaint restaurant with seating for about 30 on Lombard Street, San Francisco. Reservations are recommended for a freshly unique sushi experience. Be sure to try the sake!

Really great sushi in a local location that gets very busy (book ahead). The value and quality are amazing. The sake is very good value as well large helping only 6 usd. Well worth the effort going to and it is on Lombard street so if you are staying in fisherman a wharf you can do an 'over the hill'... More

My friend and I walked here ALL THE WAY from fishermans wharf which was quite a hike...but we'll worth it! Doesn't look like much from the outside but the sushi was delicious. Would definitely come back.

I have been to Zushi Puzzle 3x in the last 3 yrs...every visit to San Francisco. From the outside you would think it was a rundown Burger King. Inside you will find great Sushi!!! If you get a chance, sit in the back with Chef Roger...funny guy, great sushi. This restaurant doesn't accept credit cards...so bring cash. A bit pricey... More

I am biased. I love my local sushi place. But I do like to taste different preparations when traveling so I attempt to not "compare". Zushi Puzzle was very good. Nice selection of fish and great maki combinations. My only complaint -- like many sushi chefs they use too much rice. In my mind, you lose the delicate intricacies of... More

Visiting San Francisco and this place was highly spoken of by people at our hotel but the reality was it was a hole in the wall with poor service and the sushi was no better than any other sushi place and prices were overpriced for what you got. Would not recommend yo my friends or business colleaques who come to... More

What an outstanding experience! Sitting at the sushi counter and eating Sushi Master Roger's creations was dazzling, amazing, fun, educational, enlivening and so delicious! He is a showman and a humorist as well as one of the best sushi chefs I have ever experienced (and I search them out....). His range of sushi, quality, reasonable prices (especially given the exceptional... More

Zushi Puzzle is a do not miss is you want the best sushi in the U.S. (and maybe in the world). The chef is a pro and the service is top notch. The appetizers, saki, main courses, and rare/specialities are a do not miss for the super picky sushi eater!

Satisfied would be an understatement! We were welcomed by the friendly staff and were given edamame to start with. The special sushi rolls on the mini menu were amazing! Especially the fried one... We stuffed our faces with this deliciously fresh sushi and were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices! We will definitely go back to get our sushi fix!
