    This is not high-end sushi. But the fish good enough, the portions are enormous and the price is right. I love it. You can have your food brought on a wooden boat if you want.

    If you are a fan of raw fish, definitely try the crazy monkey, orange blossom and sake rolls! Ps, you can never go wrong with the chirashi combo. They are all so delicious... !

    Not the place to go for refined Japanese cuisine, but delicious nonetheless. Very large portions. Can get very crowded. Add your name to the clipboard at the entrance. You may need to wait a bit.

    Best sushi place hands down & the price isn't too bad. I don't ever eat sushi from anywhere else! The service here isn't always a 100% but the food makes up for it.

    Decent sushi for a decent price. I'm saying that satisfied. Don't mind a little wait for a table because of this view though.

    A staple for Bay Area sushi goers. Not the freshest fish you'll ever eat, but great for groups and generous portions.

    Lion King roll and an Alameda roll. They are fantastic and you won't find them anywhere else that are even half as good.
