Make reservations. Do not expect to go in and get a table. It is smaller, but nice. Plan this visit weeks in advance. They serve all kinds of different sushi.

That's a big claim, but I stand behind it. This is a quaint spot and often hard to get a table. But well worth trying.

Beware this place is where you will drop the most money. Worth every penny. You don't come every night but for a hot date night or just special occasions this place is the best sushi you will ever eat. Don't miss out.

This small restaurant offers some of the best sushi I have eaten, and I have enjoyed excellent sushi in several countries. Make a reservation as there are only a few tables. The food is artfully and creatively prepared--and it's delicious.

I understand why there is a cult following for this place. The quality of the fish is second to none, and the way the fish is prepared is impeccable. You can't beat this sushi for miles, even in San Francisco. We love the truffle oil...More
