The rolls were the best we've had anywhere - super fresh! Salads were also awesome. You walk up, sign your name, and IF there is a short wait you get to wait outside in the gorgeous San Francisco weather!

A convenient location and some good Japanese beer. Disappointing Nigeri and Sashimi but above average rolls. Uninspiring ambience

Came here with a group of local friends while in SF for business. Had a great meal. Sushi was fresh and delicious! Atmosphere was good. Unrushed with good service. Plenty of time to eat, talk and enjoy the visit. Recommended.

I ordered a take-away menu and waited for about 20 minutes. It was fresh and yummy! I would recommend this clean and friendly place for everyone who loves sushi as I do.

We stumbled onto Sakana after looking at a list of 70 restaurant provided by our hotel, and we liked it so much we went back the next for dinner again. The place was not big, cozy without feeling cramp. The staff was friendly, laid-back and...More
