    This charming Hayes Valley spot focuses solely on seafood. Start with bites of crudo like salmon or uni, and don't miss cooked dishes like the firecracker balls and broiled salmon belly. Read more

    Busy in the evenings but a great spot for a weekday lunch, esp with the outdoor seating. Rolls are excellent - I particularly liked the Domo baked roll (pictured) and the Kobe Beef one

    This minuscule, relaxed spot serves up some seriously excellent sushi. Don't miss the Uni Crudo or Castro Roll & make sure to check out the specials board. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Amazing fresh sashimi and good seasonal fish selection. Consistent high quality sushi, good roll options. My favorites are the salmon sashimi, Toro and scallop nigiri, their domo and wiki wiki rolls

    Best kept secret. Great sushi and the salmon sashimi melts in your mouth. VERY small inside with only a few tables, so come early for a cocktail while you wait or enjoy the outdoor seating

    Very good, very fresh sushi but very limited seating. Get here early or plan to wait at least an hour. When you get seated, order everything, especially the sexy mama, fiesta roll and jalapeño hamachi

    If you're looking for something with a kick, the fish tacos are insanely good and likely to be one of the most unique things you'll eat in SF.

    Service here was slow for such a small diner which was odd, because the two guys behind the counter was cranking them out as quick as they can. I will say, the sashimi was some of the best I’ve had.

    Killer for a casual sushi spot. Great presentation, great taste. Will be back many times. If you're looking for Tokyo level sushi, go to Tokyo. Or ju-ni.

    Underrated and fairly typical sushi menu, but the execution is so good. The fish is phenomenal -- especially the specials written in the mirror. Get kenmadai nigiri!

    Get a carafe of warm sake for $9 and your usual favorites (for me that's Hamachi, spicy tuna, miso soup, rolls with tempura anything) and make sure to get a $4.50 (tempura) sweet potato roll!

    They have three tables outside in-front of the restaurant which are dog friendly. Each table sits about two people.

    I've had pretty amazing salmon sashimi here. The place is tiny, so get there when they first open or be prepared to wait a bit. It's worth the wait!

    $13 lunch special includes soup, salad and entree. Try the Chirashi. Beautiful and simple, but so fresh and delicious.

    The firecracker balls were just good. The domo and alpha rolls are awesome! Expect a bit of wait. Also, since its a small restaurant, its recommended to take post-dinner conversation outside.

    Seared tuna tataki, hamachi carpaccio, hulk roll, chef's seasonal sashimi. Really melt in your mouth, sizable pieces of sashimi!

    Domo is really cozy and trendy. Cute spot in the heart of Hayes Valley. Pretty small and doesn't take reservations, so not good for big groups.

    Get the fried baby octopus! If it's not available, stuff on the board are usually better than the menu items.

    This is a less well known sushi spot that is top notch. Domo roll, walu nigiri, fish tacos, hamachi Kama and you are set. Hope it doesn't get too popular

    Love this little sushi spot! Delicious fish tacos (fried nori!), dragon rolls and the Old School Hama (was that the name?) was amazing!

    The nigiri is awesome. Sit at the sushi bar and order the specials of the day. Reasonably priced for a good sushi restaurant in Hayes Valley.

    Don't pass up on the crudo. I recommend the scallop & salmon. So good! And the Spicy Hulk is a delicious alternative for a roll without rice.

    This is a really small restaurant. If you have finished your meal and you see people waiting out in the cold, please be courteous ans take your after dinner conversation to a local bar.

    This Hayes Valley fave offers a modern take on sushi. The little spot makes goldfish bowls seem spacious. Get there early, or expect a bit of a wait. - Inspector
