Absolutely bar none my favorite evening in San Francisco. The establishment is petit, the waitstaff swift, and the food delectable. I believe we ordered three times just to extend the delicious experiment. Really worth trying for a table. There isn't an ounce of pretension, which I definitely appreciate.

“Fresh fish, great service”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Excellent, fresh fish. I've been twice and the quality of sushi is spectacular and consistent. The service is excellent, as well, and they even let you bring your own bottle of sake. Not sure why you'd need to, though, as their sake selection is top notch. Can't wait to return.

“Fresh and delicious sushi!”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 via mobile

We stopped in without a reservation on a Friday evening (would suggest making one) and they seated us at the bar. Even though we waited a while for the food, it was well worth the wait, fresh and well made rolls. Would definitely return!

“Such fresh fish, a delight.”
Reviewed 19 December 2012 via mobile

Tiny place, lots of neighborhood people come get takeout. Counter with about 8 seats. Tables seat about 20 people. So make a reservation. The sushi is fantastic. Silky, fresh and tender. Made me so happy eating here. Large sake selection. Be sure to peruse the specials board on the wall. Lots of neat additions there. Excellent friendly service.
