We came to this restaurant for dinner because of the reviews. Sorry this is one of the worst sushi restaurants i have ever been to. If you are a seasoned sushi eater don't go there. First of all the place is dirty, second the employees are using their bare hands to handle your food. Sushi chefs are not wearing any... More

Incredible edible in out of way place. It's been years since we visited this establishment. Used to be almost impossible to get in. Not now, so much. Call ahead for a reservation or just pop in on a week day. You may have to wait a bit for a table or the fish bar.. The place is small & spartan... More

This was suggested by a local friend and he was so on the mark. We asked the chef to create what he felt was best and it was amazing. Everything was presented beautifully. The food was artful, and delicious. Everything absolutely fresh. We had Abalone prepared two ways and the contrast was amazing. The wasabi was fresh grated while we... More

This is your classic hole in the wall gem. You would easily walk by it, there's nothing special on the inside or out. The magic is in the taste. The serve some of the best plates I've had. Favorites are Jalapeno Yellow Tail {Very dangerous. repeat orders some seem to happen} Hamachi Pear {interesting combination} and Toro {best i've ever... More

The dimunitive Kabuto storefront, sandwiched between apartment buildings, provides entry to a fine sushi restaurant. The simple interior allows clear views of the Chef as he works. The sushi is more nuanced, delicious and well presented, especially in combinations. I look forward to returning.

This is the best sushi I has in San Francisco. It's. Not cheap but the quality is amazing. If you're into it, try the abalone spoons. They're super yummy and quite an experience for your taste buds.

Excellent sushis. It is a typical japanese restaurant. If you are two, I'd recommend you to seat in the counter, in front of the cookers. And try a ceviche. It's the best i've ever eated.

This post is almost 6 months ago, wow. We decided to go to Kabuto Sushi in the Richmond one February weekend, and lo and behold they had their Valentine's Day menu. OK, it really was not that surprising, since it was the weekend after Valentine's Day, but still, big yay! I had been here eons ago, and had always wanted... More

When we turned up and the queue was out of the door of this small but perfectly formed sushi bar, we knew we'd made the right call to book ahead! Perfect Maki, Hand rolls, the excellent deluxe sashimi box was fresh, tasty and perfectly cut, rolled and presented. They also have a good selection of Sake, and all for a... More
