    Always get the fresh Saba (mackerel) if they have it.

    Amazing sushi! Probably the best outside of Japan. Try the fatty tuna, it's unbelievably mouthwatering!

    Not sure what's so special about the jumping rolls - they are just fried versions of pretty plain rolls

    Amazing quality sushi for a decent price. Fun atmosphere with DJ and dance music playing throughout. Feels like a club!

    Absolutely amazing. Very reasonably priced and so good. Get there right when they open and get a seat otherwise you are in for a substantial wait.

    DJ on Saturday night. There's almost always a wait, but certainly worth it!

    It's always good - get the sushi specials and skip the rolls. Oysters are insane here (like Maison premiere in NYC). Their miso and seaweed set the bar- go for the esoteric over sake and tuna

    Great food. Just beware the prices, they're different from those shown here (more $)

    Hot sake and all things yuzu-flavoured

    Loved the vegetarian sushi here. Super big portions of 5 pieces. Best part was the dj. The place has such a chilled out vibe. Popular place with long queues.

    Volcano and dragon was perfect. Portions are large. Place is really cozy and prices are very normal.

    Go solo if you want to be seated quickly without being wait listed. You can't go wrong with their rolls, my favorite is the Pokemon (mango!) and anything with eel.

    Popular basement-floor sushi spot in Lower Nob Hill. Dinner seating starts at 6pm, but line starts by 5:30pm. Rolls are pretty good, but small (5-6 pieces). Big Mama, Pokemon and Dragon were good.

    Don't let the dive atmosphere fool you. The food is legit. Sashimi is super fresh! Good vibes all around!
  • Billy J.
    I went on Wednesday at 6:30 and it was pretty busy, by 8 there was a huge line. I got edamame, a seaweed salad and mackerel to start which were all good, but the best part was the jumping tuna roll.
  • Julian E.
    Great food, funky music, lively atmosphere. What's not to like.
  • Tom S.
    Great vibe and amazing sushi. The San Francisco spicy roll is amazing!
  • Heather N.
    Deep fried cheese? You bet! This is a wonderful little basement of sushi heaven. Some great combos found in their sushi rolls including the Pokemon roll... I'll let you ponder on it!
