Ebisu serves fantastic sushi at a good price point. I've never been disappointed when I've chosen the special and I've always enjoyed my food here. There can be quite a wait, so make sure to go early if you want to nab a spot quickly.

Simply delicious sushi for a very reasonable price in San Francisco. Service also very good. Can't make reservations though so you might have to wait for a table
