I could not believe the poor quality if this place. The sushi rolls were coming apart but the serious part was when I ordered white tuna (Escolar) and the waiter brought " "Otoro" better know as bluefin. Not only was it wrong, it was breaking...More

We just happened by this place after exploring San Francisco on foot and were so glad we found it. Sushi can get VERY expensive in San Fran, but this place had great quality for a reasonable price. Very happy with the service and the food.

I ate the sushi here a couple of different times. I quite enjoy the citrus flavor of the S.F. 49ers roll. One of my other favorites here is the chicken katsu donburi.

If you want simple and inexpensive Japanese food then then Nara Sushi is for you. Service is fast and friendly, The Miso soup was a thin and weak but the noodle and chicken dish I ordered was very tasty. Nothing fancy here.

Family likes this place because it's cheaper than other sushi spots in this area. I'm not too keen because the food is very average. Rolls are sloppily assembled and falls apart easily. Ingredients like beef in the donburi was sliced sloppily too. The miso soup...More

Ordered my favorite tempura dish and had an initial shock when I first bit into it. I've had really delicious tempura before and this just did not match it. It had a weird kind of zing to it. We also ordered the salmon teriyaki which...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
