Fun trying unusual foods

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!

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.

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.

We had an excellent meal in the Ferry Building. Great place to relax in a casual environment with great service. We ordered all sushi--and it was fresh, beautifully presented and delish. Nice wine selections. The high stools may not be for everyone, but our family had no problems.

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
