Love coming here for delicious food at lunch or dinner time! Enjoy the bento boxes with great variety. Order a sushi roll as an added treat. Cozy for conversation with friends and family.

We love going to sushi boat restaurants and wanted to try this one out. It was OK - not great - but just OK. The fish just didn't seem as fresh as other sushi boat places we have been. The people that work there weren't very friendly. I won't be back.

We waited in a loooong line on Christmas day for a bowl of soup that came highly recommended by our hotel concierge. Not much was open and I didn't want to believe her but she was right. She advised us that the sushi traveling on the boats may have made many rounds before being plucked for consumption and to avoid.... More

I was in SF for business on a December weekend and ate here for dinner twice. It's too bad this location is closing after over 30 years. The food is good and the value is good. You can order off the floating boats or you can order off a menu. They have regular seating, but I chose the sushi bar... More

I've been going to this restaurant when I go to the city for business for 30 years. The food is excellent and fresh. Sadly, they are retiring and closing for good at the end of December 2016. Get there for your meal while you can, you be glad and full for less than $25.
