Tried sometimes get a meal there, but the line and wait were too much. Then I thought the food would be great. It was just ok. And service was terrible. Can assure it is not authentic Japanese cuisine.

Centrally located near Union Square, right below Holiday Inn Union Square. We went there for dinner 3 out of the 5 nights. The dishes are authentic , as good as it can get even in Japan. The portions are big, hence it is not expensive. The restaurant is always crowded so go during off peak or you can put your name on the wait list and wait. The sushi, the don (Rice bowls) and the Nabeyaki Udon are all very good!

This is an excellent Japanese restaurant. Perhaps I am not qualified to judge since I am not Japanese, but my friend and I were the only non-Japanese in the restaurant, which confirmed our impression.

The service was quick, the food varied and authentic. My friend had a generous bento box, I had a beef/onion/egg dish. The miso is great.

Strongly recommended!

Ate here two evenings in a row for dinner, tired of the over-priced restaurants at most hotels. No reservations, we were seated within 10 minutes each time. Make no mistake, one is not here for the atmosphere, this is a basic no-frills Japanese hole-in-the-wall eatery. Tables tightly spaced and packed with Asians of various nationalities, dining elbow to elbow, a veritable cacophony of Asian dialects overheard, Filipino, Mandarin, Japanese, the reassuring sight and sounds for any decent Asian restaurant. Service fast, staff sometimes forgetful, but when reminded of a missing order, quickly rectify the problem without complaint or fuss. Fantastic food for the price. We had teriyaki chicken and very good sushi. Dinner for 2 under $40 (no alcohol or beverages). A screaming deal for San Francisco.

We had no reservation, but got a table for 2. The atmosphere is typically Japanese, so was the food we started with edamame, which was fine, had some sashimi of good quality (slices had been cut thinner) and some nigiri as well as some rolls, and some mixed tempura. All was made fresh and was of delicious taste, very original. Fine assortment of Japanese beer, worth to taste! Service could have been faster. Good value for money.
