Phenomenal. Sushi gets better and better in SF and this place is currently at the top. We were blown away. Far and away more interesting than most. The fish cutting and rice expertise we’re apparent as was the highest quality of all I Fredi eta. Do the o añade the first time you go

As usual a wonderful omakase experience. Fish was fresh with little preparation and not overdone.

Mediocre sushi, obiously trying to cut cost. Super small sushi with inexpensive cuts like mackerel (and lots of it). Some sushi old and stale.

It’s all right for a birthday dinner here.... overall the restaurant is Small, crowed, noisy, with those entitled people blocking the entrance and refuse to move. Took them 5-10 minutes for the host to greet us... totally took half an hour to get ready for my table. In the mean time I was sitting on a waiting table along with some dirty dishes and bottles around.
Sushi Bar- DO NOT have the Japanese ambience that you are looking for, not worth to sit there and I don’t want to describe what it looks like there. There’s much better places out there. If you don’t trust me you can check it out yourself.

Just for the first impression, already got you thinking not to comes back. Specially for my future birthday, “felt special “.
But don’t get me wrong food was great, beautiful on point. The waitress was professional. With their complementary green tea cheese cake (birthday only).

BUT the bottom line is that I come to the restaurant to spend money for the food, experience and the ambience, but I do except much more if I am spending $300+. I will rather spend $500+ for the best experience, ambience and food elsewhere honestly.

I would give 3.8 out of 5!

I really enjoyed this place. The vibe is completely unique: think great 90's hip-hop/r&b, chic minimalist interior, and prime sushi straight from Japan. Many upscale sushi spots are elegant, traditional, and minimalist - but this place has an utterly cool vibe unlike any other I've experienced. My partner and I did the Omakase, and it was wonderful. Great fish, great attention to detail. The sake pairing was perfect too. The service is unparalleled. Certainly in the top-5 sushi restaurants in the city. The neighborhood it's in is a little scrappy, but honestly it just ends up adding to the appeal. Just don't get too gussied up or you'll look out of place. This is the Gucci track suit of sushi spots, so throw on your most expensive RTW.

Best value omakase sushi in San Francisco. They fly their fish in fresh from Toyosu market (formerly Tsukiji) in Tokyo!

Felt for the amount we paid it was just ok. Been to better in SanFran area. After the first course, they ask you if the soy and wasabi levels are ok (as you can adjust). I asked for more wasabi and never received it on any of the other courses. It was only when the folks next to us asked for more wasabi that I realized I should have received some extra, but at that point, we were almost done with our meal. I said something again to the wait staff and they finally brought it out (although late).

Husband and I sat at bar and had the omakase. Amazing food. The fish was tender and cured. The red vinegar rice complemented the fish perfectly.

The service was impeccable. As soon as I was done with a dish the wait staff removed the dish to prepare for the next round. Everyone was attentive. The chef was friendly, proper and wonderful.

Ambiance was relaxing-dimmed lights. Would definitely come again!

Sushi hon never disappoints. This was my 2nd time dining here and they really understand the value of making your experience unique and unforgettable. The work crew signed my girl friend and I a card for our anniversary which was a great personal touch. And of course the food was incredible. I will be back soon :)

Sushi Hon is one of the best sushi places in SF, IMHO. Quality of fish - outstanding. Unique flavor pairings (black truffle and waygu; caviar on top of select fishes; these are seasonal pairings)Everything comes already dressed with sauces and wasabi, so no need to dunk your fish (unless you really want to in which case they will not stop you or frown at you. Excellent service.

Convivial atmosphere with communal tables and sushi bar seating. Did not partake of sake but all looked great.

More expensive, but worth it.

no sushi place is worth customer money when there is no chef personally preparing the sushi for their guests. Great ambiance too bad for not having enough chefs to prepare freshly the sushi at this price.

Considering that I've had omakase at another restaurant before, this was a little disappointing. The price was less than the other one, but I did not feel satisfied with the exclusive omakase. Some fish served were very good, but I wish there was more to it than just the fish. The dishes could use some more creative plating.
