First time dining here; came with a friend of mine who recommended it as more for locals than tourists (I'm the latter). Overall, it was a decent meal for an okay price: two bento dinners, one nato maki and two cokes = $52 before tip. The food was fairly tasty and I had enough to eat without being stuffed. No... More

If you are in Union Square or on Nob Hill, worth eating here. Very nice staff, delicious sushi and udon bowls. Yummy Lava cake. Good for families, alone or a group. Only cons- no kid chopsticks, and the tea is just a tea bag in a cup.

If you like sushi or other Japanese food this is a good choice. Near Union Square and close to theaters. Good service and a large selection.

The sushi is good and the space ok. Service was a disappointment. Stressed waiter having little time for taking order, almost rude.

The rolls (dragon roll & lion king roll) and the edamames where delicious. We ordered an appetizer that I did not like very much but my husband did. I would definitely come back.

Sunday night before Labour Day... no need to book! Good food (try their Maki in a great variety) and beef teryaki. A little pricey but clean, quiet and in the heart of SF.
