We went with family and chose this restaurant based on a recommendation. It is waterside at Pie 39, with a nice view of Alcatraz. The edamame and spring rolls we chose for appetizers were very good. We asked that the grandchildren get their meals first and their sushi came quickly. The portions were huge. We ordered an assortment of sushi,... More

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday as I am a sushi lover at heart! This place was gorgeous! We made reservations to make sure we could sit by the window over looking the ocean at sunset! The food was delicious! And the setting made you feel so fancy haha not touristy at all! The waiter didn't really speak... More

Our party of 8 was seated quickly, which was a big plus, but service was fairly slow and the menu was not easy to understand. Two of us ordered the "hot rock" entrees and the menu did not make it clear that these would be "cook your own" type affairs. Also, the fried rice did not have a good flavor... More

No green tea, had to ask 3 times for extra ponzu sauce. It was a slow Thursday night and only one server. He spent some time sitting in the bar area with the hostess. We ordered 3 separate times for sushi roles and I swear the sushi chef took his sweet time making the rolls with only 2 other couples... More

The six of us had a decent meal here, with good service and a view of the water from the second floor of the Pier 39 docks. I had a shrimp and vegetable tempura, which was pretty tasteless; fortunately the sauces added a bit. Good lunch, but certainly not out of the ordinary.

We came here as a last minute decision and glad we did. Staff were friendly and efficient, we were given the happy hour menu which had a great selection. We ordered calamari, Californian roll, Guoza and garlic fries. The portion sizes were great and the food was very tasty. Sauvignon bland was delicious too. The Restuarant had great views of... More

At pier 39, with a fantastic view of the bay, you will experience the best Japanese cuisine. A varied menu with lots of choices available. The spring rolls were amazing, the sauce for the katsu was not my favorite but still good. We watched the sea lions swimming around in their territory whilst eating our meal.

My other son ordered kids meal. It comes with Apple sauce. There is only chopsticks on the table. I have to asked for fork before... More

This is tucked away at the end of Pier 39 but is well worth searching for. the service was superb and the waitress couldnt have been more helpful and friendly. The bar staff were great and really patient as I tried to choose a beer I liked (I cant drink Lager). The food was excellent. We had the Lava rocks... More

Hubby and I stopped by for lunch while vacationing in San Francisco. We sat at a window table with an awesome view of the bay. The restaurant was surprisingly empty considering the view location on pier 39. We ordered the teriyaki chicken bento box with tempura, California rolls, rice, and a salad with no dressing. The teriyaki chicken was terrible.... More
