Great sushi in most likely the most US competitive market for such restaurants. Very efficient service; plus a chef going out of his way to discuss the food and the way to best enjoy it. A restaurant to revisit on a future trip.

Made a reservation over the phone , two days ahead, just to find out on our visit that we were not listed for the desired date - listed on the date of our departure from the city. No regrets from the staff, no even an effort to accommodate or compensate for their mistake. Fairly unusual non-welcoming reception. Off my list.

I am not a big sushi eater so this was impeccable, we had just about everything on the menu, very very fresh, very very flavorful, miso soup was good, the greens were so so. The nigiri was very very good.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Say at the bar. Had the sashimi tasting and miso soup. Fish was very fresh, but not very interesting. I guess that I was expecting more from the "tasting" than plane old sashimi. Had to ask for the miso soup three times ... Chef was too busy trying to impress the guys sitting next... More

This place is tiny but the sushi is delicious, you can tell the fish is very fresh, and it's mainly classic sushi, not a lot of crazy silly Americanized rolls. The eggplant appetizer was also very tasty.

Incredibly fresh sushi. The Black Tuna in particular was the highlight of our lunch. Service was slow but acceptable. Highly recommend if you're in San Francisco.

Attended the restaurant for dinner this evening, had some trouble finding the restaurant due to lack of external signage. Ordered Salmon sashimi - the wasabi tasted freshly ground, was fragrant and with good heat. The ginger, shiso and daikon were fresh and tasted great. The sake salmon was cut adequately but still had a layer of the brownish-grey flesh which... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
