It was so good we went back the next night to eat there again. I love this place! We tried the house made tofu, fried eggplant and various types of sushi. It was all fantastic and so fresh. Lovely service as well. I only wish we had this place at home.

I lived in japan for 7 years and my boyfriend is Japanese. We absolutely loved this place. Small and very authentic. Home made tofu and oboro dofu were delicious. Grilled eggplant with miso paste was really good. Don't expect a heaping of food (sorry, this isn't Texas) and you need a delicate palate to appreciate Japanese food but if you... More

It probably seats no more than 30 people at a time. But, it has a feel of a small, family, Japanese restaurant. Service- very quick and attentive. Food- very good- must try the black cod broiled in sake- hiso- excellent. The strawberry Mochi was delicious (tried to order an extra one and was told that they have a policy of... More

We had dinner at Eiji with friends during a stay in SF. The place was recommended and booked by a regular visitor to Eiji. Despite this fact we started on the wrong foot: We were late and called just about the time of our initial booking. The waiter didn't accept our appology and wanted to give away our table. Nevertheless,... More

Tiny local restaurant with a few tables. They did not want to take a phone reservation for a party of three but encouraged us to try as a walk in. We didn't mind a reasonable wait so we thought what the heck, we would still try. It was nice weather and night so a wait was not a big deal.... More

This place is a great place to go for a nice sushi dinner in a small relaxed traditional Japanese atmosphere. The food is stellar, they make their own tofu, which sounds odd to most, but all will love, either hot or cold. Do not come here if you like being a loud Sake bomb dropping, loudmouth. Do come here to... More

Love this place, love it to bits. The house made tofu is so delicious, comforting, silky, luscious and unique. I've been known to eat a bowl all my myself, and the sushi rolls are so good, as is the menu. Come here, meet and eat the amazing tofu, and enjoy!

We ordered the house made tofu because of another patron's suggestion and weren't disappointed: it came in it's own cruet of types, freshly made by the waitress with an assortment of 6 toppings to add ourselves. The sushi was good but the seaweed salad is what I'll remember about the experience!

Eiji is a quaint 20 person seat resaurant nestled in The Castro area. Definitely try there homemade tofu that is made right in front of you on a small Bunsen burner. The tofu sort of soup is served to eat immediately or you can add Benito, diakon, scallions, ginger and/or soy which is an amazing mixture of flavor and silky... More
