After a second visit and having tasted more dishes, I can share my satisfaction. It's crowded but we were seated relatively quickly. Once seated, service was fine. To be safe, go on a weekday night or very early or late on a weekend.
It's noisy from the crowd, but like many other such restaurants you adjust to that when you are served.
The seafood rolls, Baja California Roll, Fire Cracker Roll, and tempura dishes were terrific. The grilled oysters were yummy. The miso soup was good. The variety of sushi was great.
I especially appreciated being told if certain dishes were spicy or very spicy while ordering.
There appeared to be many regular customers as many people around us seemed to order without looking at a menu.
N.B., I realize many long time customers who used to love it don't love it anymore since the location moved across the street. Portions size and pricing are the reasons. I don't have that historical perspective. To me, it's worth visiting. But the owners ought to listen to their long time customers. Losing word-of-mouth advertising hurts business.

I came to Sushi To Dai For on a Saturday night for dinner. The place was packed. The pleasant Hostess said that I would have to wait forty-five minutes for a table. At first I hesitated, but I decided to wait as I was really craving sushi. Sushi To Dai For was well worth the wait. The sushi was fresh and delicious. I ordered the Philadelphia and Dragon rolls, which were great. I also liked their Miso soup. The service was impeccable. If in San Rafael, I will certainly return to Sushi To Dai For.

Fresh, Fresh fish of all sorts! Excellent hand rolls and specialties based on what is most fresh-soft shell crab rolls are particularly tasty.

We eat at Sushi to Dai For once a month or so, and are always pleased with the food and the service. I would describe it as Japanese fusion; while there are excellent classic dishes here, the real draw are the creative rolls, which are among the most creative I have had anywhere. I personally am partial to the spicy Mahalo role (which gets some of its heat from Sriracha sauce), and Mushroom Madness, but these are only two among many choices. For starters, chicken gyoza is delicate and tasty, as are the steamed spinach salads and sunumono. Tempura is perfectly battered and flash fried, and udon is delicious on a cold night. Decent sake and wine selection, as well as a variety of Japanese and non-Japanese beers. The only problem is the pricing. At $16 to $17 per roll, for some of the larger rolls, as well as small and pricey sashimi, it does not take long to run up a tab. This is why we come only once a month instead of once a week, but otherwise the place is great.
