Let me get to the point. The sushi is not top grade. I would not order sushi, but the tempura and the rest of the dishes we ordered were tasty. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was fine.

Found this place by accident, came on a Tues with co workers for lunch. If you know the Ramen scene in San Mateo, its a min 30min wait for the other two popular choices... This restaurant was clean, with no wait. Great selection of all the traditional ramens, along with a few unique to the restaurant. Ordered the Spicy Tonkotsu... on point!! Also try the fried garlic bits as a condiment - wow!!

Visited Inshou 3 or 4 times on this trip, it offers excellent Yakitori and very excellent sushi and many other delights, including ice cold beer. The price is very affordable for California

The place is smelly
It was quite warm, even too warm though we've asked to turn the air condition on
We mainly had sushi & sashimi. The food is ok
Nothing much to expect really given it's location
We still enjoyed it but mostly for the company as opposed to the culinary expectation

went here for the first time tonight, food was really good, order a few grilled items from the menu, and ordered a majority of our meal off the specials board just ask the waiter for the board and they will bring it to you. definitely going to return. sashimi was really fresh, daikon salad was good.
