The staff there is very friendly and helpful.
I went with a friend and we tried the all you can eat. It`s $27.00 per person and they have a different Menu. The only thing I think I missed was the ginger because for AYCE option they do not offer ginger. I do recommend this place.
One thing I loved was that they tell you that you will be charged if you opt for the All You Can Eat (AYCE) and do not eat everything you request. Once you tell it to your client, they will think before they request.
Great place, good food and I really recommend it.

I definitely don’t recommend this place. Rude and slow service, poor food quality and they messed up with our orders and with the bill as they charged twice one of our cards. Stay away from this place and spend more wisely your money!

Food was good; not the place to go on a hot day.
Granted, hot days are rare in San Francisco, but without air conditioning, this little place was really uncomfortable. On a regular SF day, it'd probably be great. We had 2 rolls and a tempura; it wasn't exceptional, but it was fresh and tasty...and a good value. It's a small place, so it's also not a big, noisy sushi restaurant, which was great.

Sushi Hunter has a great all-you-can-eat sushi menu. With a selection of cold appetizers, hot appetizers, sushi rolls and nigiri. We got dessert for an additional cost, which was delicious. The fried banana without ice cream was our pick, but I can see it being delicious with ice cream as well. Will return!

Went for all you can eat sushi, food was ok nothing special, way too much rice on each roll which made the rolls feel mushy. The soy sauce tasted watered down but service was good! We were welcomed into the building, seated fast and the waitress was friendly.

We ended up coming here while we were in San Francisco. Weird hours. They opened up at 1:30pm. We were the only ones sitting in the restaurant. It was embarrassingly empty. The food was creative and delicious. They had 3 nigiri made from 3 different fish roe and my favorite...tobiko.. flying fish roe.
It was good and if I were not visiting the city, I would eat there again

I really enjoyed Sushi Hunter. My friend and I were looking for something with good sushi and good drinks and this restaurant had great reviews. The meal itself was very good. They offered garlic edamame, which was very different but also delicious. The sushi options were very simple, nothing out of the ordinary from other sushi restaurants. I was expecting a wider variety, but the rolls we ordered were very good in the end so I can't complain. The drink menu was very limited though. 2 beer options, only house wine for red, 3 white wine options and a few bottles of Sake. A handful of beer options or adding another 2-3 wines to the list would definitely be a plus.

I have walked by here many times, but this was my first time eating here. My dad and I had the all-you-can-eat dinner, which is not a buffet, but rather prepare-to-order. I thought maybe it would take a long time, but service was quite responsive and the food came out promptly. Food quality was excellent, fresh and tasty. Would come again.

I took my girls to Sushi Hunter before Beach Blanket Babylon. Although I would normally be looking for Italian food in the northbeach area, we wanted vegan options and something open before 5pm. I am glad Sushi Hunter was available. The location was clean, the prices were very reasonable and service was prompt and friendly. They also have two tv's- they had Sunday football games on which I liked. My only complaint was that I like to know all of my options when ordering. The server suggested the nigiri specials and I really should have asked for more details. The specials were fine but came cooked with skin on, not my favorite. I like fresh, uncooked nigiri. Also, the server brought the gyros that we did not order. So my suggestions are to the server; please ask more question, give more info, be specific. Overall, we were happy with our choice.

All you can eat sushi, sake and japanese food. Price is very reasonable. Some of the non-sushi dishes were excellent (e.g. Saba Shioyaki). The food is prepared to order. The sushi (nigiri and rolls) was merely ordinary.

I've been coming here for years and they've been great. Good sushi, great service, very friendly wait staff. But the last 2 times I've eaten here, the wait staff has been different and there's this head waitress who might even be the manager as she acts like it. She gets your food order and if you even pause to think about your next item, she motions you with her hand to "c'mon, just order". She rushes you, and sometimes she walks away as you're still talking. The last 2 visits I've had to tell her her to stop rushing us as we are thinking about our order. She absolutely ruins the dining experience. It will be awhile before I would think of considering going back. And if she is still there, I would walk out and go to Tony's instead.

Waited 15 minutes despite having a reservation. Before being seated a couple a head of us were seated at a table for 2. The only table left was a table for 4, before my party of 2 gets seated they couple seated ahead of us gets asked if they want the larger table. After they refuse we get seated. After being seated we are not helped for 20 minutes. Absolutely ridiculous.

Once again, OpenTable comes through. Looked through the listings in SF and liked the descriptions of this place. Walked over and while we were hesitant based on how the place looked from the outside, we went in and had a really great meal. They were helpful and very nice to us. Will go back for sure!

I use OpenTable all the time to find great restaurants in cities when I'm traveling. I read that this restaurant was good and that they have all you can eat sushi which I love! My husband and I met up with 2 of our friends and it was such terrible service. We opted for the all you can eat sushi. Our entire dinner lasted 3 hours and I asked 3 different times for a specific type of sushi (Masago) and still never received it. None of the specialty rolls were on the AYCE list and there was a ton of rice compared to the actual fish. We also did not receive several other rolls and nigiri throughout the evening. Maybe if you eat here on a Thursday at 5pm it might be a different story but I would not return here.

I had the all you can eat sushi for $30 and it was great! Definitely worth the money. The fish was good quality and the rolls weren't too heavy on the rice (like most all you can eat places do). The appetizers were really good too (seaweed salad, miso soup and gyoza were bomb). I went around 3pm on a Sunday so it wasn't very busy and everything came out fairly quickly, considering it was all being made fresh to order. Overall great experience! I will be going back.

Really fantastic value for all you can eat. We ate so much, it borders on insanity. The only thing I would say is that the waitress was good at avoiding us for the next round of all you can eat. She was probably just trying to pace us, but it worked against her. We were there for about 3 or so hours and had close to 50 rolls between the 4 of us. Great time!

Sushi Hunter is the only place that offers all you can eat sushi however, it was not to my satisfaction. I understand for most all you can eat places, the quality isn't that great but I was expecting a bit better from Sushi Hunter. First of all, the rice was packed poorly in all the sushi rolls and nigiri that I had. It was soggy and didn't taste fresh. The sushi itself did not taste fresh. The staff was not as attentive since there were not too many waitresses taking care of the tables. What turned out to be an hour dinner went to 3 hours because we were primarily waiting on the sushi. I would rather pay more for good sushi than all you can eat sushi. Quality means more to me than anything and I'm a bit disappointed that Sushi Hunter didn't get anything right. Not even down to their miso soup and edamame.

Not a very good experience. They said they did not have our Open Table reservation, but squeezed us in nonetheless. Very bad service. Not attentive. Difficult with all-you-can-eat by order. Loud but probably unique to having two large parties there with us. Mediocre food. Eatable but not good. Sushi chef cannot pack rice.

We had a party of 12 as a surprise party for my boyfriend's birthday dinner and the wait staff was AMAZING. We did the all you can eat menu and they ordered a bunch of plates for us to start with of their most popular dishes. Everyone was really satisfied. They were great about refilling drinks and bringing out more food as we requested. I will definitely be back! I forget our waitresses name but she was so sweet and very attentive. Really great experience!!
