I DARE YOU to find another restaurant in SF that is extremely high quality, AND all you can eat, AND SUPER CHEAP! For two people, two bottles of sake, and a large beer I paid under $100. Unheard of in SF.

Service and food was better than average, but because they offer all you can drink as part of their menu... you'll have obnoxious sororities and fraternities and college kids yelling at their top of their lungs even though their party is sitting across or next to them. My wife was half kidding that she perforated an eardrum during our meal.

When I was there the place was completely empty so I worried that locals did not seem to like the place. However, the food turned out to be really good. I had the fried shrimp and it was cooked perfectly, with potatoes that were really good and a bowl of white rice that was really good as well. I did not care for the Miso soup, and I'm not really a fan of teriyaki spritz on my salad although they both appeared to be made with fresh vegetables.

Thank youdoll

Hotel breakfast location of choice. Primarily Japanese food, with a nice selection of American fare for those whose tastes run more towards burgers.
