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.

The selection of prepared dishes was almost overwhelming for a quick lunch served cafeteria style. All of our selections were tasy and prepared with fresh ingredients. I loved the burdock salad and the combo chicken- tofu patties with cilantro. The roasted squash soup was also delicious and very substantial. They have the best miso soup I have ever tasted. Everything... More

Super Fresh, healthy and very friendly, welcoming personnel! I ate the salad menu with excellent tofu with daikon and seaweed salad and reasonably priced at 10$. I can completely recommend this place and would surely go again myself when in the neighbourhood.

We lunched here after browsing the entire Ferry Building market. The food, while mostly microwaved to re-heat, was really tasty and reasonably priced. We split a meal, my wife had curry soup, and we also split a couple of chicken appetizers (the apps were fantastic). They’ve got ample community seating inside. Definitely a good place at the market.

I wandered over to the Ferry Building for lunch during a concert and found a place with a long line thinking that was a good indication of a good meal. The line was NOT wrong. This place had such good salmon chowder and carb cakes that I went again the next day! Well worth a visit, food was fresh and... More

This is not epicurian cuisine. Nor is the ambience anything other than 'Ferry Building entry way'. But for a quick bite, nothing else beats it. For $26, two of us ate lunch plates with miso soup and green teas. We were stuffed, and it tasted so good. You can go to the Slanted Door down the hall and pay this... More

We stopped for dinner on our way back from a festival in Sausalito and tried this place. The rolls had more rice than anything else. I prefer to taste the fish. They charge as if they were giving you more than rice.

Had little time to spend and there was an enormous queue to be served a la carte. I opted for the freshly prepared, ready made bento boxes and sushi and was not disappointed. Seating capacity is limited, but go outside to sit on the benches facing the bay.
