The place smells stale and bad, the tofu was not my preference but others did like it, nobody liked the sushi: it did not taste fresh. Would not return.

IMPOLITE, rude, and even agressive. Definetely, the WORST RESTAURANT I have been in my life. Never seen a treatment and a service so awful like in this one. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL. Avoid it!

My secret place for quiet food, nice service and excellent food. The sushi is so very well prepared, and setting calm. Small place, can get busy, especially at night. Enjoy!

I really enjoy this restaurant. It is hidden on Sanchez Street, it only has 6 tables; reservations are a must. The sushi/sashimi dishes are quite good, especially the specials. The cooked plates are amazing, especially the kama-shioyaki dishes (cooked fish cheek). The tofu dishes are...More

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
