Small, somewhat idiosyncratic restaurant in Mission whose food is fabulous anddefinit ely worth the wait. Minako (Judy) the owner is friendly, charming and simply wonderful. We have never had better sushi anywhere.

The rumors are true! Vegans & vegetarians can enjoy sushi with the rest of their carnivorous friends. And more than just the common "veggie roll". Minako's extensive, organic, customer personalized menu offers amazing vegan eel rolls alongside the freshest hamachi sashimi. The wait can be long, so go early. Most of the patrons have been dining at the restaurant for years and are on a first name basis with the owner. The dining experience is similar and feels like you were invited to dinner at your long lost aunt's house. If your aunt was Japanese and listened to Nine Inch Nails.

P.S. If you like ume, you're in for a treat! The chef occasionally uses ume that has been aged for more than 50 years!
