Why is it that the best food often seems to be had in the smallest of places? I ate here one evening on a business trip. It was an associate's go-to sushi place in SF. We were a party of six but they managed to...More

As other reviewers have pointed out, this place can hold about 16 people. But if you are one of the lucky few, you will get very tasty, fresh no-nonsense sushi. Worth a wait if there is a line!

The fish was all very fresh and every item we had was full of flavor. They were very accommodating in adjusting our reservation due to one member of our party being delayed due to air travel.
