Their Bento Boxes are Divine

Having lived in San Francisco for 9 years, I have been to Delica many times. Their Bento Boxes are delicious! The green been salad is something I love to eat along with the meet rice and one other salad. The Ferry Building is wildly popular because there are so many delicious options. Plan on a... read more

We have a place in Oakland and consider it worth it to take BART or the Ferry to Delica just for the Wasabi Potato Salad. This place is often very busy, but the line moves quickly and if you can score a bench outside, it's a good day. Containers of food can be taken anywhere, though. Everything else we've ever... More

We popped into here while wandering around the Ferry Building and working up an appetite with everything offer in there. There wasn't a great deal left as it was late in the day but we were tempted anyway. We had pork escalope, minced chicken balls and potato croquettes amongst a couple of other things. It was absolutely delicious and only... More

Food was very different from what I am used to in Australia. It was tasty and my husband enjoyed it but not to my liking. Service was below par and I had difficulty getting a proper explanation of items from the staff. I was very surprised that a tip was still required for this type of to-go venue. Difficult to...

My husband and I were about to take a ferry to Sausalito. We entered the Ferry Building to find a plethora of quick, high-quality eateries. We chose Delica based on what we saw guests eating! There is an open-kitchen where you can see the staff working diligently. We had smoked salmon sushi, a crab cake, and tempura vegetables. It cost... More

Sushi didn't have any taste so we had to dip it in soy sauce. On the other hand rice rolls with shrimps and crab were good, and the best was miss soup. The price is too high for such combination.

This place is good for a quick lunch and got very busy while we were there. It's cafeteria-style, so you have to choose quickly without knowing exactly what you are getting. We tried 4 different items which were all fine, and the salmon chowder was outstanding!

They offer very traditional Japanese home-style dishes as well as more contemporary menus. Yeah, some dishes are a bit pricey for this kind of casual place but it's in the ferry building! I tried here when they first opened 10+ years ago, then visited a couple of times, and recently I ate tons of foods and had lots of wines/sake... More

The food is tasty and fresh, and the spicy items have a nice bite. They have pre-made bento boxes for a grab-n-go meal, or you can order individual pieces from the deli counter. I really like being able to choose just a few items when I want a light lunch or a snack. I's stop here again.
