Rolls were very good and definitely a place I’d visit again. We were visiting from out of town so didn’t realize it is located in a food court area which was ok but would’ve been a bit disappointed if our party was wanting more ambiance. Quality of food and service were top notch.

I was glad I made a reservation for lunch, because the restaurant was jammed! I made an error and requested table for two but the party was actually three, and though unexpected, they handled it well and seated three of us. The sushi was surprisingly good for two people who had lived extensively in Japan. The rice was excellent and the fish was very fresh. We appreciated the service and the food.

The meal will be most memorable as one of the most difficult restaurants we've ever visited. The staff need to work out a system for splitting checks and not lie to customers about their rules.

What a pleasant surprise. I was a bit worried about the mentions of "food court" restaurant in the other posted reviews. To clarify, you do enter through the food court, but this is a fully walled location, so it does not feel like a food court restaurant at all.

We found the service to be excellent. We were headed to the ballet at the YBC, and the timing/location were perfect. They restaurant uses a team based model, but unlike other places, the team seems to communicate well! Our main server was great. We asked to eat in waves of food, and she would show up just at the right times to see if there was anything else we needed. The other team members knew about our water and wine preferences, and ensured we were not faced with empty glasses. We never felt rushed, and made our ballet with no difficulty.

The food was amazing! We tried four things, which was too much food. We had the cod (delicious!!!), two sushi roles (as fresh as indicated in other reviews, and beautifully made), and the chicken (good, but would probably skip this next time).

And the prices are very reasonable for food and wine. Great place. Will absolutely go again.

The poor service really undercuts the very good cuisine. We were rushed: the male waiter
interrupted conversations to clear plates when others were still eating. The service truly needs
to be improved with regard for its diners. We had reservations, the place was not filled and we were in and out within one hour. I would recommend this restaurant only for its convenience to SFMOMA and Yerba Buena evening performances. Otherwise I would not.

The bus boy kept coming by to grab dishes before we were done. Felt rushed and even the waiter at one point tried clearing dishes but we were not finished. Then he brought the check before asking if we wanted anything else.

I like this place. The food is pretty good, but not tying to be more than it is. Just good, better than most food at a really good price.

Okay place in a convenient location. Don't order a starter and a main at the same time or they'll bring your main Within minutes of bringing your starter.

We shared the sesame chicken meal and a California roll. The California roll was fantastic, as it tasted very fresh! Sesame chicken is our favorite!

Nice sushi. Service was tentative but very friendly and responsive. Sushi was very expensive for this casual place, but it was very good.
