The sushi was really fresh and the atmosphere was very nice. We had torched salmon, Uni, and Wagyu. The most disappointing thing was that we found a bone in our torched salmon. After I told a waitress about it, they told me they would let someone know. They forgot about us until the waiter came with the next dish and I had to remind them again.

We were surprised the food was awful. Even the salad tasted bad - I don't think it was washed. We ordered salads, soup, potstickers and sushi. Both of us took a couple of bites of everything and left most of the food. I rarely leave a restaurant hungry with food on my plate. After we left, I went home and ate. I don't understand how this restaurant can serve so bad sushi and survive in San Francisco.

I loved the food and overall feel of the place, however, I felt pressured to quickly order and get out. The waitress checked in every few minutes which was too much. The place quickly became packed and very loud where it was impossible to have a conversation. They were very accommodating to my celiac and outside of the above it was a good experience.

The menu should mention when a fish has spicy sauce in a roll. Also, $7 for a bowl of plain edaname is a bit high. I have never had a spider roll with tempura shrimp instead of soft shelled crab.

Please hire servers who understand and speak English a lot better.

Okay spot but much too loud for a group of seven girlfriends to catch up. Food was good (loved the edamame) but not great, especially for the price point.

The food was some of the better sushi I have had in the Bay Area. Nothing overwhelmingly amazing but definitely a great dinner spot for date night, catching up with a friend, or just grabbing a drink and a few items to share for happy hour. Formal/casual blend where you can dress nicely but also can stop by after a yoga class (which we did).

Food was delicious. Fish was fresh and creatively prepared. Prices were very reasonable. The noise level was deafening though and really detracted us from enjoying our meal overall because we couldn’t hear each other across the table.

My friend and I met there after I got off work on Friday. Granted we ordered quite a bit of stuff but our sushi took forever to come out. All of the tables that came in after us were fed & gone by the time we finished.

But on a positive note the sushi delish! We did 3 rolls & a hamachi carpaccio. We had the Red Hot Snapper, Crunch Dragon & Spider Man. I think the Crunch Dragon was my fav! The sushi was very fresh.

Didn't know this hidden gem has been 3 blocks away from me for a year & a half. I will definitely be going back a lot!

It was 50 degrees outside and the whole dining room was freezing. They should have offered something as an apology. The rainbow roll was all one color.....something is amiss here...

Loved it. Sushi was fresh and delicious. We sat at the bar, and the man making preparing the sashimi and rolls took the time to chat with us. The only negative is 1 server takes care of all the tables AND the bar. We got great service b/c we were the only ppl at the bar, but I could see some tables getting impatient when it took a while for the server to make the rounds to get the orders.
