    Delicious sushi roll's and main courses. Perfect for a quality meal if you have a reasonable amount of time. The 49'rs roll is amazing, along with the Spider roll and miso soup. I highly recommend it.

    Unassuming, good place for weeknight sushi. A good neighborhood go-to. Full and busy but hardly any wait. I like these guys, it's a friendly, familiar spot with good fish. It's not fancy but I like it

    Half eaten. SF's best kept sushi secret. As good as Ryoko's without the outrageous wait and more reasonably priced.

    pretty solid spot for having just wandered in. Fatty Tuna and Cuttlefish were incredibly fresh and the udon was decent. Tempura could have used some work.

    Excellent care given to tofu salad and tako salad. Always a good sign when the small details aren't forgotten

    Consistent quality. A good neighborhood sushi place. Traditional Japanese fare so you're not gonna see rolls smothered in sauce.

    Great place, no-frills, very good fish. Ask for the Omasake and ask to include "Uni" in the pack.

    Recomendable 100%. El mejor sashimi de salmon que he probado. Buena atencion, pedias en menos de 5 minutos ya estaba servido. Buen precio y merece la pena pagar lo que cuesta. Pide el Caterpillar!!
