    Sushi Hunter was an absolute blast! For 40 dollars you can get unlimited sushi and saki! And it's not like they have slow service. As soon as we ordered for saki or sushi it was out very quickly! They allowed are group to have a blast and enjoy ourselves. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to eat good sushi and saki. It is a perfect spot to go pregame with friends before a night out in North Beach.

    I initially booked for 12 people on a Monday night with no problems. It also wasn't a big deal when we had to call & change the total to 9 after a few drop outs. We ordered ala carte and paid more than we would have for the all you can eat option but after reading reviews regarding the quality of the all you can eat we decided to go with individual rolls. Friendly staff and service all around.

    If its all about the food, then this place is great. Great Toro, great Salmon belly sashimi. The ambience leaves a lot to be desired. It's not the type of sushi place where the sushi chefs welcome through the door with a vibrant welcome in their native language, but the food is really good so you may not care.

    Very good sushi, without the wait. Great for groups. They have an all-you-can-eat option (currently $28 on weekends, $25 on weekdays), which has a fairly lengthy list of appetizers, nigiri and rolls to choose from. The sushi is made to order vs. being a buffet style, so the sushi is always fresh. Their menu also had lots of additional a-la-carte options. If you like something a little spicy, I particularly recommend the Devil roll -- it was surprisingly delicious!

    We had made reservations based on previous comments. Was a nice restaurant, comfortable and uncluttered. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Only drawback was that their internet was down so we had to pay with cash. We were prepared for that but may have impacted other would-be diners.

    We really liked our food and the service was very nice and we had a good time. We like the openness of the dining room. The only downer was that the dining room was 90F and it's not great eating sushi in extremely hot rooms. We've been there before and it seems like we always go on Friday nights which is always packed and the noise levels can be quite high. But complements on the service. That I most appreciated. Keep that up and we'll be back again!

    The menu is extensive with variety of good Japanese food (both sushi and traditional dishes). Happy Hour is reasonably priced and a very good value. The all-you-can-eat option is also a very good value with a variety of menu options. We didn't eat off their regular menu. However, it appeared also to be a good value. We went on a Wed night and it was not very crowded. I can figure out why. I would recommend Sishi Hunter and plan to go back again.

    Hunt no longer for the very best sushi in town. Sushi is top notch and they take special requests and we always order too much because everything is so good. Ask for off the menu items like the hot roll. The lion king roll is insane and new favorite is the volcano roll. We simply go nowhere else for sushi.

Food selection was big enough to accomondate even people who doesn't like sea food. They also have decent selection of sake. Just can't beat this place for the price. Definitely a place for return business.

    Food was decent but not spectacular. Sushi rolls smaller than expected for the price. Service was good though. However, menu page on OpenTable needs to be updated as it advertises "eat-all-you-want" price for Mondays for $22.95 and new price is $25.00.

    My boyfriend and I went here for sushi after seeing that it had "all you can eat". Man, we had a feast. The rolls are overall pretty great - we used this opportunity to get adventurous and try some new things like The Big Easy (good), the BBQ eel roll (fantastic) and the range of spicy rolls (great).

    We celebrated a birthday with 10 people and the all-you-can-eat sushi. It was a wonderful way to try a number of different food items and the quality and quantity was fine for us (not really sushi connoisseurs). My only complaint was that one of the party had to join us when we had all finished eating, and she had to pay the all-you-can-eat price as well even though she only had time to eat a small amount. It seemed odd that they couldn't let her order off of a different menu.
