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!!

Great place for fresh delicious sushi. The owners are awesome and the food is fantastic. It is a small restaurant, but clean and fun!

Although this is a small restaurant in an out of the way location, the trek to get here is worth it. Some of the freshest and best tasting sushi that I have ever had. My favorite part of the dining experience was my conversation with the owner who encouraged me out of my normal sushi "comfort zone". I tried some unique and delicious dishes. Highly recommend this establishment.

Small restaurant in a difficult to reach place by mass transit (and difficult to part if driving). M y wife and I went there because we were attending a theater close by (Thick House). We both ordered the special sushi plate of the day and it was wonderful. Very fresh and tasty. Even though the restaurant is difficult to get to, we will definitely return.
