Forget the food, which was quite OK. The traumatic experience was that, about 4 ft apart from our table, there was a big plastic box where dirty dishes were loudly dropped before being collected and brought to the back. See pic attached.
To complete the experience, an awful smell of chlorine was coming from the back of the restaurant. The poor guys working there were kind and apologetic,but it did not help much. Dinner to forget.
Looking for a Sushi down-town in SF? Then go somewhere else....

We chose this restaurant while walking near the Hilton SF. The service was very good as well as the quality of the food. I could go back again without hesitation.

We have just finished dinner here. Really very good. Excellent in fact. Bacon wrapped salmon yakitori was a revelation! Salmon nigiri fresh, smooth & almost 'buttery', bed teriyaki good but veggies a bit cold. Overall though a great place with tasty food & generous serves of wine!

Excellent portion sizes for sushi with good taste. Fellow co-workers ordered other items off menu including lava rock meals and all prepared to perfection. Dessert was fair but think we over indulged in our main course. View of Alcatraz and Golden Great Bridge excellent. Great service.

Have been here a couple of times and enjoyed. Once sat at the sushi bar and once at a table. Service is very good and typical of Japanese restaurants. I particularly like the yakitori here. Very well prepared. The sushi was also very good. Properly prepared though the slices of fish on the sushi were on the small side. Pricey but as expected for San Francisco.
