This was the best sushis I have had in a long time! Everything was perfectly fresh and prepared... I really loved the Kitchen Sink roll, so tasty! Very good and pleasant staff. And this fabulous place isn't even noisy or crowded!

Found this place close to my hotel. Great selection of sushi. Not too bad prices. Great service too. Checkout the specials they have on the wall. Very fresh fish. I will return.

Shino was a real treat. We were looking forward to our dinner. I ordered the Chef's Choice dinner. The sashimi was superb as was the presentation.

Many different types of sushi rolls to try, reasonably priced and excellent quality, all tasted very fresh. Short walk or Uber ride from Gaslamp area. Highly recommended!

If budget is of no concern then by all means, order omakase, which allows the chef to serve you his choices of fresh catch. Amazing!

Extremely fresh sushi. Order Omakase, which lets the chef choose what you eat. It is a great way to experience new tastes.

We went for dinner but they were almost closing so we left, after a minute or so of us standing in the street looking for nearby restaurants, the host came back and told us we could order if we ordered everything at once, so we went back, we were hungry and tired. The kitchen sink was amazing, highly recommended.
