My family and I came in randomly while staying across the street. The food itself was a letdown although the price is fine. The staff was friendly but the interior is poor.

This is a neighborhood place, with a mix of tourists and locals. Not slick or fancy, but that's ok, the staff was friendly and the decor was basic but comforting/pleasant. They offer all the usual stuff, from sushi to tempura to ramen. Food was perfectly fine, not great, but also very reasonable. The ramen was the perfect comfort food after... More

Tanppo was recommended to us by the Conscierge at our hotel. It is a locals place, owned by a Japanese family. You really feel a part of the SFO community when you eat here. We had lunch- excellent Bento box lunches and lunch sets with sushi, sashimi and all of the trimmings. A nice neighborhood spot with friendly service and... More

Had dinner for two on a Tuesday evening. Even though most tables were taken, the two waitresses were able to keep up with the orders ad take care of customers. The bent box had a generous amount of food (2 rollls, salad, white rice, grilled salmon), more than enough for me. My wife had a rice with beef teriyaki and... More

Whenever I arrive late at SFO, I come here because I know it will be open no matter what. They have steaming hot bowls of ramen (not cheap, but not too pricey) and even if I've had better elsewhere, it is still satisfying. I have yet to try their other dishes, but I've been happy so far with their ramen... More

In the heart of San Fransisco, there is a little place with a tall tower called Japantown. As it is s home for several Japanese shops and restaurants, there was no question to try out a sushi place, and Sanppo was a real good choice! The place itself is very authentic, the decor itself shows some Japanese aspects, so we... More

We loved this little place in Japantown in San Francisco, it felt like being in a family dinner as invited guests. The staff was extremely kind and friendly, they seemed to know the regulars at the other tables. The sushi, the wakame salad and the curry udon was exceptional. When we was leaving the place, a nice gentlemen at the... More

We took the Muni Bus to Japan Town to explore and grab some lunch. Thinking the Japanese cuisine choices would be good because of where we were, we randomly chose a restaurant on Post St. that said they had lunch specials that included Bento Boxes, which we usually love. They are definitely filling and contain a variety of raw and... More

This is a small place and seemed to have a mostly Asian clientele which we think is positive for a Japanese restaurant. The sashimi tuna was very fresh and generous proportions, shrimp tempura with veggies was crisp and not greasy with no aftertaste, the green salad was very basic. I recommend the green tea mochi was a great end to... More
