    Go for omakase or just don't go. Excellent sushi spot, but it's very traditional, so make sure you're prepared to drop some cash.

    Sushi taken very seriously. May not be super friendly, but friendliness wouldn't really fit this place.

    They make you pay minimum of $20 dollars on sushi per person $30 if you sit in the bar. Terrible service, never going back. I wanted to love this place, i was really dissapointed

    This small, simply decorated Japantown treasure traffics in sushi for sticklers: the freshest fish, subjected to the deft knife skills of chef Noboru Ino, and his divinely textured vinegared rice. Read more

    Ino is a sushi joint in San Francisco's Japantown. Japantown is the last place I'd normally go for great sushi, but Ino is amazing. Tip: Make a reservation! The place usually has a long wait. Read more

    So cute, soooo cute. Good, but not fantastic, but damn fine compared to any other place in Japan town that doesn't involve a sushi boat.

    Make Monday a little better with some delicious eats at Ino Sushi. It's known for its quiet dining experience, so go for a business lunch. Definitely try the Maguro-Zuke! Read more

    Sushi is ok. Fish is fresh, rice gets tighter and tighter as chef gets busier, and his attitude is terrible. Not a good sushi chef should be. If you want to be tortured, come here.

    We came looking for a light lunch. The host told us we had to spend $20 minimum before drinks. No thanks.

    Ankimo! Silky and perfect. Get multiple orders! Toro is a mouthful of fat in the best way possible. Aji is incredibly fresh & rich. Omakase will run ~$100/person.

    Omakase. If you don't feel like spending money - get the monk fish liver and the uni. The sushi is fresh and amazing. Cute old japanese couple runs the place. Wait can be super long so reserve.

    I mean don't even worry, this place is ridiculous, just be decisive with your ordering. Amateurs know where the door is

    Etiquette: Pour a small amount of soy. Use your fingers to grab each sushi piece. Dip the fish side of each piece in the soy sauce. Eat. The hot towel is to wipe your fingers between pieces.

    The best traditional sushi experience in SF. Order "omakase" and enjoy what Ino-san prepares. The monkfish liver is amazing.

    This is the best sushi in sf. Go omakase to get on the chefs good side. Price is reasonable.

    Chef Ino-san will berate you if you don't know the basics on how to eat his traditional offerings. Our tip is to just take it -- his delicate morsels of the sea are worth the pain. Read more

    I don't think I've ever had better sushi than here. Sure it's more expensive than other sushi places in the neighbourhood, but really I was happy to give them my cash!

    No California rolls here - this local favorite is for serious sushi lovers only! Be prepared to wait - they don't accept reservations - but you cannot go wrong by saying the magic word: "omakase."
