This review is way overdue. 1) I dined in Ino sushi over 100 times and believe me, he never disappoint. 2)His skills, his technique and his sushi rice are flawless. 3)Fish is way above average but of course cannot compare with Hokkaido or Kyushu 4)I can only say he starts his training in the age of 16 and now he...

Had the Chef's Special sashimi, two orders of uni and toro, and miso soup with mixed mushrooms. My wife had two orders of the unagi and avocado roll. All of it superb. Tradtional sushi…no mayo sauce or all-you-can eat buffet. They do have a minimum charge per person, but perhaps this is just the reality of a small husband and... More

Our customer service experience was identical to the others who found the place offensively, laughably rude. The little old lady owner took an instant dislike to my wife Kami, who by everyone's account is literally the nicest person you will ever meet. Kami wasn't ordering enough food, she tried to shift our table a little so we weren't literally on... More

Last night I was able to indulge in some of the 'best sushi' in SF and it was delicious. First things first, make a reservation. During the course of the meal, I saw two different parties walk in thinking they may get a table, they did not and you could tell they were so disappointed. Since this was my second... More

Family checked out Ino based on reviews. When walked in we knew we were in for a great sushi experience. We were not disappointed. We asked for the chef to prepare what he felt like for us based on some things we liked and our adventurous spirit. The chef prepared us a great meal. we could have asked for more... More

This is a place for sushi lovers who like the real thing (no cream cheese, tempura rolls, etc.). The fresh does not smell nor taste fishy. It all tastes sweet and fresh. The special deluxe is the way to go. The sushi chef was cordial and efficient. Those reviews criticizing the chef and his wife are apparently from wimps! Don't... More

I am Japanese and used to live in SF for 3 years. In the meanwhie, I searched for nice Japanese restaurant in the whole SF bay area. And Ino sushi turned out to be best in the bay area.

Traditional and authentic. This place is for serious sushi eaters. You don't come here for service. You don't come here for people to baby you. You come here to eat raw fish on some rice. That is it. So, please stop complaining about bad service. We made a reservation, arrived on time, and was greeted warmly by the wife. She... More

Before I start writing this, I would just like to say that I hardly ever write reviews for TripAdvisor, not any other travel site. However, my visit to Ino Sushi tonight constituted a review immediately. I have been searching desperately for a good, authentic sushi bar in San Francisco, something I have still yet to find. Upon entering the restaurant,... More

Most unfriendly chef and sidekick wife never smiled once all night except when picking up my cash at the end. Sushi itself was mediocre. Any rave review is misguided at best, probably have not experienced truly good sushi.
