I had the BBQ Beef and a Salmon Maki lunch special. It came with rice, salad, and tempura for $10.5. The beef was a little weird, kind of rubbery, but the maki was quite nice. The service was okay, waiters were friendly but did not...More

The service was friendly and accommodating. The cooked dishes were quite good, but the sushi was disappointing. It is too bad because the prices were great; perhaps the reason why. The 2 stars is because of the sushi. If I would rate the cooked dishes...More

Excellent venue, fresh sushi, very reasonable prices for the quality. Make a reservation. The menu has a lot of variety with all the classic dishes as well as some special rolls.

I can say that the sushi here is much better that all the Japanese restaurants that I've try in San Francisco. Actually better the ones I've eat in Tokyo. Last for the Toro tuna - it's amazing. Great service also and a very nice ambient.

Fantastic sushi! I think the prices are really pretty good too, a spicy tuna roll of 6 pieces was only $6 if I remember correctly. Nice atmosphere, nice staff, and delicious food--highly recommended!

Have been here for lunch a few times. Good, decent Japanese lunch. Had the salmon bbq lunch, and although it wasn't a very big portion, the fish was grilled well.

I come here frequently with colleagues. It's always quite crowded, sometimes there's a wait time. Today I ordered the lunch special, futomaki (eel), inari (rice wrapped in tofu skin) with chicken meatball soup. Very good. Typically I order the sashimi lunch combo or sometging similar,...More
