Sushi Ran rarely disappoints and this time, the food - particularly the sushi - was outstanding. The waitress was pleasant and prompt.

always the highest quality fish; amazing. prices are a bit steep. the new addition (building) does not have a sushi bar where you can see sushi being made -- that is a loss.

The food is good but there are several Japanese restaurants in Marin now at this level that are less expensive.

The server was very pleasant but we waited unusual lengths of time for a desert menu, then the check and then to pick up the credit card etc. Bottom line the service was quite slow. Maybe not her fault as she may have been assigned too many tables.

Beautiful food. There is a difference between OK sushi and sushi treated and served with care. I have heard about Sushi Ran for a while now and I finally made it over there. I wanted to go back immediately the next day. The only regret I have is not sitting at the sushi counter.

Was a frequent diner here for years, but I moved and hadn't been there for a year. What a disappointment to return. The Trumpet mushrooms were no longer large glazed mushroom, but were small, thin slices with no glaze and something pickled and diced sprinkled on them. The salmon was mushy and flavorless, like farmed salmon that had been refrigerated for a couple days. The waiter responded to my disappointment in the food by saying he had only been there three weeks and this is how the food has been since he started. I will give Sushi Ran one more try, out of respect for years of excellent sushi dinners. If it is better, and I just hit a bad night, I will remove this reciew.

I have been to this restaurant several times. This was not the best. It was a cold and very rainy night and I was first seated in the second building outside on the concrete. The outside was covered but it was very cold. I asked to be moved and they were accommodating. The food was good but not great and their prices are very high. I know everyone loves this place and maybe it was an off night but like I said I've been before and it was much better.

The food was delicious and the service was great. We had the sashimi platter, and two sushi platters, and for appetizers the shrimp and scallops dumplings and the tiger shrimp tempura. The desserts were great and so was the miso soup and green tea. The food was great! The tab was $160 with no wine.

Have been a long time happy customer of sushi ran. Haven’t been there for a while. Disappointed in menu change. Not as much good choice. If this was my first time there I would not return. I would not rave about this being a must go to restaurant in Northern California as before. So sad

decor is a little stale after all these years. could use a refresh. Multiple service people at the sushi bar was confusing - who do we order from? some things from chef, some from server (different servers came by)? confusion resulted in chopsticks being cleared before food service was complete

I used to love Sushi Ran but feel it has gone downhill of late. I went twice last week as I had friends in town and both times I was underwhelmed. My biggest complaint is that there are basically two separate restaurants (spaces.) One feels like it's the real Sushi Ran by the sushi bar and the second feels like the lesser Sushi Ran, however, the prices are the same of course. And my sushi roll was stodgy AND my miso soup was watery and lukewarm. Sad.

We had an amazing dinner at Sushi Ran on Friday night! Hosting out-of-town friends, we made a special request for the front corner table on the sushi bar side - and got it! From beginning to end (3+ hours later), we enjoyed courteous, professional, and thoughtful service and truly incredible sushi. I have been a loyal Sushi Ran customer for 20+ years, and it is so nice to see that the quality of sushi and hospitality is better than ever. Proud to call Sushi Ran our "home"! Thank you, Yoshi!
