    Ignore the main menu with all the crowd-pleaser rolls. Go directly to the "Today's Catch" menu. Order one of everything. It's some of the most remarkable fish to be found in San Francisco.

    I'd skip the curry makerel but everything else was spot on. This and Ebisu are my favorite Inner Sunset sushi places based on quality of food and ambiance. Kiki's is your best bet for price

    Come here for happy hour and enjoy cheap hand rolls for $4. The cut rolls are regular priced between $6-$8ish but still delicious!

    Thought I'd love it more. Felt overpriced and I wish they had simpler rolls that let the fish shine. The best roll is delicious though!

    A Spoonful of Happiness is the best "one bite" appetizer you can get from a Japanese restaurant. You'll want a lot more spoonfuls of it.
