It is not every day that I do not like a place. It is rare and some of them have some redeeming qualities. The wine we bought was horrible. The fish was not fresh as it should have been and the staff was not in focus while we were there - they were so much more happy involved with each... More

If you are into Japanese food and am in SF, this is a must try. Sashimi is really fresh and the Dinner Combination set is a real value for money. The Sesame Chicken is really good. They have a wide variety of Sushi rolls and every one we tried was delicious. We were in SF got four days and ate... More

This is one of our favorite places to go when were are in SF. Actually we really look forward to sitting by the sushi bar and watch them make the freshest, delicious sushi and sashimi. Their uni is to die for and you will never go wrong when you order their daily special sushi. Too bad we don't live in... More

What was once one of San Francisco 's top sushi spots has become a has been in a city full of great places for sushi. Super unfriendly wait staff with 14 minute wait for a glass of sake. Not great sushi either.

This place is small and tight. It almost feels like everyone is sitting on top of each other. Expensive for what you get. Small pieces of sashimi. Won't go back there! If I had to pay for a $$$ price, I'd better get $$$ food.

Visited a few evenings for sushi and place is always busy. Can't go wrong with sampler platters or specialty rolls. The Sanraku roll was tasty as was the fresh fish flown in from Japan (the scallop was tasty)

They have sake ,beer and wine but they do not have any hard alcohol , no problem, remember it's a... More

This place is fully booked for lunch and dinner. If you go there after 21.00, there is a great chance that you only have to wait 20 minutes. The food is excellent, service is average.

We had a great family meal here, we had lovely big portions with plenty of choice. It is mid priced for San Francisco, and close enough to walk from Union Square. Our waiter was incredibly friendly and helpful I would wholeheartedly recommend this place for a relaxed sushi meal. The interiors are basic nothing fancy but everything is clean and... More

Had a quick lunch with my family and was impressed by the quality of the dishes: this is a real Japanese restaurant - not a "Chinese-run-Japanese" - and you won't be disappointed. We had the daily lunch, a very good value for the money, while our kids had sushi a la carte, and we ended up sharing across the table.... More
