I live in Vancouver, home to dozens of great sushi restaurants, and this place holds up. Great quality fish, good atmosphere, a variety of rolls to choose from, and the owners are absolute gems. I ordered the seafood salad, and got the most epic dish...More

I love the sushi here! I come here often. The fish is fresh, and unlike some sushi places the chefs don't pre-slice the fish -- it's sliced as they go. They are generous here and their special rolls are very good. I don't think there...More

simple, quaint, clean & friendly. Sushi is fresh; the option to pick and choose from several boats, assures you will leave full & satisfied. Arrive early or after 8:30 for better chances of being seated promptly.

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
