This small Japanese restaurant was just across the street from our hotel. It did not disappoint and the food was exactly as one expected it and with good service. The bill did not break the bank either.

Very Expensive for super mediocre food. Is this the San Francisco way? The service was quick. The presentation was poor. Zero atmosphere. It’s a bit like eating in a school cafeteria with sushi some kid made for a project. I’ve never seen such small portions....More

This small restaurant provided good service, good sushi, and a casual ambiance. We were fortunate that they were not completely crowded when we arrived, but they were always busy. We were not overjoyed with the tempura, but their California roll is one of the best...More

5:30P family dinner for 10 on Xmas Eve. Except for the prime location (essentially the corner of Post and Taylor), this feels like a family operated joint. Superior selection of seasonal fish, generous cuts, peak freshness. Tobiko and Quail Egg served with the Quail egg...More

Fast, professional service. We had several rolls, nigiri and sashimi. The fatty tuna is a must try. Spicy scallop roll is very nice with a clean finish. Very fresh. It got crowded after 7.
