Diner Reviews
  • "For anyone familiar with sushi in the Bay Area, you know that there are some truly terrific places, where the fish tastes as though it was caught that day. Not this place. The sushi looked tired, as though it was days old. It tasted okay, but not even remotely up to Bay Area standards. And the pieces were significantly small, which may not be a bad thing when the fish isn't that good to begin with. You can most assuredly do better than this restaurant."

  • "All my courses in my combo dinner arrived before any of the courses of my two companion diners. Waitress did not seem to think it was a problem "Oh sorry about that"."

  • "We had the tempura, soba noodle soup, garlic pork yakitori, crispy spicy tuna roll, and the lion king roll. All were really good. Tempura was perfectly fried, light and crispy. The garlic pork was very similar to pork belly. Both rolls were really good. They also have a good selection of sake. We asked for a recommendation and we were between 2 different kinds of sake. Our server recommended the lower priced one - really nice that she didn't just try to up sell us. Would definitely recommend this place and would go back."

  • "There are a lot of items on the menu so there are a lot to choose from. We went there around 7 p.m. but ran into some people who may have started their happy hours from 5 p.m. A couple of the person voices got pretty loud and carried. It ruined our dinner as we could not hear our own conversation. The food was okay. The yakitori (2 different orders) were forgotten and we waited 30 mins between dishes. Our assigned wait staff was too busy talking to his colleagues. Fortunately we got the attention from the other wait staff who was not even assigned to our table."

  • "They take large party reservations! We had a huge sashimi combo, skewer (yakitori) combo, sake, and some rolls. All were delicious. Service was attentive, never overbearing. The place was fairly mellow and in a good central location downtown. Half a block from Johnny Foley's - a great after dinner stop for beverages. Go here!"

  • "Needed a place to eat on Christmas Eve in San Francisco and came across this restaurant in Open Table. Reviews weren't stellar, but we were in the mood for sushi somewhere close to our hotel and not too expensive. We were very pleasantly surprised by the cozy ambience and nice views atop the busy city streets. Service was adequate and the food was really good and fresh. Even our 9 and 11 year olds finished everything on their plates which is a pretty good testament. Overall a good experience -- no complaints. We would happily recommend this place to friends."

  • "I made a reservation for 4:15 after getting off a plane and wanting some sushi. I walked in 4 minutes early and was told that they shut down for dinner at 4:30 and I would need to order immediatley. I did so and my check came before my food and I was asked to sign immediately. The food was average and I felt extremely rushed through my 15 minute meal there. If they do not want customers at 4:15 pm they should not take reservations for that time."

  • "Located 2 blocks from the Powell BART station, this is a quiet and delicious place to take a break from downtown crowds. On a Tuesday night, the restaurant was quiet, the service attentive, and the food perfectly prepared. the Vegetarian dinner is especially recommended, with the caveat that it is a LOT of food!"

  • "Salmon was outstanding. They had a party group that was very noisy, but moved us to a more quiet area."

  • "This is not an attractive restaurant. No real ambience, no fancy tables or fine art on the walls, just really good sushi. Service and speed were good and prices were reasonable. I will go back again."
