    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.

    Pokemon Roll and the Volcano are awesome. Spicy Golden Gate doesn't beat Tokyo Go Go's, but it's still amazing. Loved the Volcano so much, I nearly ordered it again on the next round!!

    Very good nigiri. The fact that they use the sweeter Japanese uni put a smile on my face.

    Excellent place - fresh fish and nice environment. Hard to find it if not through a guide (Zagat). Open till 2am. Highly recommend.

    The volcano roll sounds weird (shrimp, jalapeños and peanut butter) but is fantastic.

    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.

    Omakase off the specials board. If you're solo, hang by the front and make nice with the host to snag a quick seat at the bar. Avoid the octopus, unless you like chewing belts.

    Be prepared to wait 45-60 mins on weekends. Enjoy an adult beverage nearby, really ONE because that's probably a perfect wait time!

    Enjoy the freshest sushi with killer daily specials from Japan (ask for reccos). The Volcano and/or Sexy Rolls are equally 💣.com. This & Saru Sushi Bar are two of the best joints in the state/land

    Even though the food is not bad, think twice as you might have to wait 1h for an appetizer. And DJ is just annoying really!

    Fresh, tasty sushi and sashimi. Nice ambience. Bit of a queue but they serve drinks while you wait to keep you occupied.

    Great place for a late night meal (or any time for that matter). Wonderful staff and tons of fun! The local feel is a welcome relief from such a touristy area.

    The spicy yellowtail roll is just right for when you've eaten everything in sight but you still want one more thing to round off your meal.
