    Everything is good here! The jumping tuna, the Philadelphia, the chicken teriyaki, the hot sake...
  • Steffen B.
    Be prepared to queue but it's worth it! We went late in the evening and didn't have to wait long. Try the White Tuna from the specials board. But everything is delicious!

    I loooove this place!! Just don't order the blue moon. Stay with sake and Sapporo.
  • Benjamin G.
    Sushis great and the menu underwhelming. The place gets packed quick - especially if you want a table. Try the hot tuna roll 👌
  • Nishanth C.
    Everything we ordered was great - Japanese mule, fried oysters, Dragon roll, Volcano roll, Jumping Tuna roll. Overall one of my new favorite sushi restaurants in the city!

    Get seats at the bar and ask the chef what's good! I got a hand roll of a Tuna's spine (not sure of its Japanese name)

    Don't be scared if someone yelling you at the entrance... This is the best sushi that I ever try. The spicy tuna, the typical california roll, and the jumping tuna are the best!

    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

    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.

    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.
