“Best sushi place in Northern California!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I love this place so so much!!!!
Pros:
- Wonderful service. Chefs are very cute, good looking, and thoughtful, especially they are not Mexican chef working at JPN's restaurant & sushi bar.
- The food is spectacular. Every piece of sushi or sashimi is so fresh & juicy. I enjoyed every moment there.
Cons:
- Pricey!!
- Parking!!
- Have to make a reservation!!
- No good for group because the place is kinda small as JPN's restaurant style.

“Secret Sushi Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

If you are looking for good Sushi in San Francisco, you will find plenty. But a truly great find was this tiny classy place hidden from view...literally, there is no name out front. My husband and 2 girls walked back and forth puzzled - it said 542 Mason and we saw no restaurant. Not giving up we looked for the door and low and behold there she was.

Reservations Highly recommended as there are only a few tables in the modern elegant dining area and they were already booked. They welcomed us to take 4 seats at the sushi bar. Limited menu, not much for my 11 yr old who is a not a big Sushi fan, but Sushi was the Freshest we've ever had, made with precision right in front of us while the chefs talked to us about our trip. The 49er roll was out if this world!! Worth the search and VERY reasonably priced for the quality.

“Fantastic Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This place has become my go-to-sushi spot here in San Francisco. Sushi is always fresh and delicious and the service is great. It's a small restaurant but that means you don't have to wait long. If you want amazing, fresh, well-prepared sushi for an affordable amount of money, come here.
