This time we had their sashimi morawase and it does not fail you. And even the miso soup has good taste. Don't be fooled about the "not so elegant interior" - try to concentrate on the food itself - and you have a winner.

I felt respected and well taken care of. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the late fall weather. The sake selection is good. And the sushi tonight was amazing.

The five star reviews of this place must be by people who don't know Japanese food - and etiquette. Let's start with the wait staff - totally condescending and snippy. The food? It's just so-so. Really. There are much better Japanese restaurants in San Francisco.

This restaurant has gone through quite a few metamorphis but final version is very good for fresh fish dishes, sashimi, sushi and other delightful dishes. Coedo beer is a specialty beed beverage besides sake. The Shikaku Coedo Black Lager is excellent!!

Friends who know the place invited me there. I would probably never get there otherwise. I've been to MANY Asian restaurants and particularly Japanese all over the world, but this one has a unique touch. It started with unusual choice of Japanese beers ( my...More
