    Lively atmosphere with classic sushi standards and creative rolls. Line can appear long but tends to move fast. Skip the overrated pokemon roll, get the caterpillar roll instead.

    If there is a queue when you arrive, write your name on a list at the counter and then sit on the steps to wait. Took us around 10mins. Food was excellent.

    The tempura was good, various sushi's were OK, 7 of 10. The atmosphere was a downer! Too, too load. Happened to be here on a day when temp was over 100 in SF. NO AC in here! Very, Very stuffy!

    I loved the orange delight - light and delicious.
  • Tony K.
    Not worth the wait. What kind of sushi place has a Costco-sized jar of peanut butter behind the counter? Yes: there is a roll with peanut butter. The other sushi was about as interesting as a wet rag.

    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!
  • Juliana A.
    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!

    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

    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.

    Check in before you go inside. Since it's downstairs, network is hard to come by. Read more

    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!!

    Chirashi is way over priced for what you get. Stick to the rolls.

    Si vienes akí pide rollos, los niguiris estan mal hechos y son caros. Haz fotos de lo que traen, conmigo olvidaron un rollo en un plato k iban varios y por no acabar con la policia, lo acabé pagando

    Precio/calidad óptima, buen sushi. Es autèntico con algunos platos americanizados q lo hacen especial. Lo malo, demasiado ruidoso (sumado al ruido ambiente un dj pincha a todo volumen) y larga cola.

    Le poisson vient tout droit du Japon ! Le riz se fait discret dans les rolls, c'est un petit bonheur.

    Lo mejor de lo mejor. Auténtico japonés. No dejes de pedir el atún de entrada. Rollo mi favorito el jumping tuna. Pide el alcatraz también. Pasa lleno así que toma tu tuneo para la fila. Lo vale.

    De entrada pedi uma sopa com tofu e o melhor dos pedidos foi o roll com carne de caranguejo e aspargos...tudo estava delicioso. O preço é massa e o clima do lugar é super descolado.
