The sushi rolls were very good, too bad we didn't understand what many of the other menu items were, as not all of them had pictures. The service was very fast and efficient. Overall a nice and not so pricey experience. When you're looking to get some sushi for dinner and you're on a budget, this place is the right... More

I have eaten here a few times liking a menu that offered a small meal for a fair price, under 15 dollars. I was disappointed in the manner in which a taste concern was handled at the restaurant. Admittedly I am not a sushi expert, but when sushi (raw fish) does not taste fresh I would expect more concern from... More

Price value here at this place was really good and the sushi was high quality. Staff was super friendly. We were seated at the bar where we could actually watch how the sushi was being prepared for us. Would recommend to people to go there, however the atmosphere is not the nicest...

Very delicious food! My brother and I was looking for some sushi in San Francisco, which got us to Nara Sushi. At our time in San Francisco we stayed at hotel hilton, and we didn't want to eat on the hotel. So we decided to eat on Nara Sushi, which was our best decision ever. Fantastic service, and fantastic food!... More

We had a nice mix of dishes, the fish is fresh and plentiful -representing generous portions. Sushimi combo, two rolls -spicy salmon and 'cherry blossom' with seaweed and cucumber salad -a nice, fresh meal!

Really a good experience! my girlfriend and I eat in this restaurant, good service, really fresh salmon and tuna, and generous portion of food. A good deal for a sushi in the heart of San Francisco.

Ryoko's was my go-to for sushi in the Lower Nob, but that may have all changed with the discovery of Nara. Unlike Ryoko's, you can get a seat in a blink, even at 8pm on a Friday night. I wrote my name on the host's white board in the front of the restaurant behind 3 other people, but two seats... More

We found Nara Sushi on Trip Advisor and were so happy with the food and the hours that we went there several times during our stay in SF. Our first visit was later in the evening after arriving at our hotel from the airport. Other visits for lunch. Portions are very generous, the fish is fresh, the service is friendly... More

We went to Nara with a 17month old baby and the staff were very accomodating (highchair was provided). Food was excellent and very reasonably priced.
