The sushi chef here was not on a roll (pun intended). The sushi was sloppy prepared, pretty cold and not specially tasty. The attitude of the personnel equaled that of the officers in the security line.

This is an ok choice on al layover. Th e sushi is fresh made but not made to order. I had spicy tuna. My husband had a chicken bowl. It was tasty but some of the chicken wasn't edible.

Maybe it was the 2 weeks in Europe or my expectations of airport food, but the noodles and sushi I was craving were great. There was a bit of a line, but in the end, the food was great and I left full and happy. Once you have your food, there is a large lounge area with some tables to... More

Healthy, tasty, fresh sushi, noodle dishes and other great options. Staff was friendly and quick. We took ours on the plane but you can eat there, too.

For an airport sushi... not bad at all. Fresh, tasty and not expensive. Not a super restaurant... but not bad either

Coming back from Seattle on my way to XNA in Northwest Arkansas, I rain into this place. More attractive than the common sandwiches or salads common to many airports, and certainly better than a chicken sandwich from a fast food chain. I saw with surprise that they were offering chicken curry and then I remembered reading that curry is quite... More

Really nice, kind people with good, clean, simple Japanese food at SFO. Really nice to have a "home cooked meal" as opposed to petes coffee and stale sandwiches from other places.

Great sushi with fresh fish. Eat their every time I go to San Francisco. The assorted sushi and the soba noodles are my favorite.

I travel a lot and spend a lot of time in airports. The foods available in airports is generally not that great. BUT! SFO has some really good places to eat. Sankaku, now located in United Terminal 3, is a great place to stop in for a nice Japanese meal. I usually have the noodles and maybe a small order... More

Places like this are why Japanese chef 'unions' insist that eateries anywhere in the world that pretend to serve sushi must have chefs trained on sushi-making like in Japan. When I visited, the two sushi-makers were Vietnamese and Mexican; no wonder the sushi looked most unappetizing. The deluxe udon or soba (@ $16.62) was slightly better than $3 cup noodles,... More
