    Small shop, just a few counter seats and tables. There's one guy doing all the sushi so expect to wait a little. But the food is really good! Not super classic sushi (is a bit fusion-y), but tasty!

    Gari saba (or any form of mackerel), mussels. Cash only, very reasonable prices for the quality of the meal and dining experience

    Put your name down, go next doors to Destino and grab a drink while you wait.

    Other favorite sushi place. Small, almost hole-in-the-wall establishment hidden off Market. Space is small, so be prepared to wait for a table (it's worth it).

    The spicy hamachi roll has hamachi, jalapeño, lime slices, sprouts, avocado, and is some sort of magical deliciousness.

    Be sure to try the albacore tataki nigiri. I think we bought them out one time.

    The baked mussels are worthy of visiting again. The salmon sashimi was the best I've ever had. Ordered the Hawaiian Roll #2 for the crunchy macadamia nuts but was underwhelmed. Total bill for 2? $50.

    Baked Mussels are great. Hawaiian rolls are also great. Spicy hamachi roll is great. The water is to die for.

    A tiny sushi bar in Mission. Prepare to wait in the line and be rewarded afterward. Get Edamame, Spicy Tuna and Hawaiian rolls, these are the best picks Read more

    Best affordable sushi in SF! Service can be slow, but always friendly. Try the rolls (Hawaiian #2: albacore and macadamia nuts) and the baked mango dish! Cash only. Get there before opening or wait.

  • @HungryEditor B.
    Don't let the name fool you. This is a legit spot for solid sushi. Do go early & order the baked sea bass apptz. NYers: think of it as SF's equivalent to Tomoe.

    The nasu (eggplant) is the best thing on the menu. And that's saying a lot because it's a glorious menu. 2 pieces each might not be enough.

    1) Put name down on board. 2) Wait. Yes, it's worth the wait. 3) Order (at the very least) baked bass, spicy hamachi, Hawaiian roll #1 & 2. 4) Get check; Be amazed at how inexpensive it is. 5) Profit.

    Small, delicious, friendly. Don't bother with a big group - 2 is best, 4 will mean a longer wait. Write your name on the small whiteboard inside on the right and be patient :)

    The wait is incredibly long... Even after you sit down, it takes forever to get your food. And the ambiance is not conducive to long waits.

    One of the five best sushi restaurants I've visited. The prices are very fair for the level of food you get. Try the baked mussels. Be warned: cash only and really long wait with a self sign-up sheet.

    Order what you live at other sushi bars. It's better an bigger. Baked bass an other favorites are good but not worth skipping what you love on a regular sushi dinner experience

    If you don't want the really long wait (all waits are long) go on a Monday or a rainy night.

    16 seats (2 tables x4, + 8 seats at the bar. Come early. Great spicy tuna & spicy hamachi. The Baked Bass is a must. Uni is ultra fresh and straight from Mendecino.

    Definitely get the baked mussels. Not a huge selection of sushi/rolls but you get fruit like mango in the mix, which is interesting.

    Be prepared for a very long wait, even for 1-2 people. It's fun to watch the chefs make magic from the bar seats and if you have a thing for baked appetizers check out the mushroom & jalapeno dishes.

    Get the baked seabass - it's baked on a mussel shell with mango. An unexpectedly good combination. Also, the fish is just so fresh here.
