Great dining experience – This place might now be as busy as other Japanese restaurants rated in Citysearch, but I think this is one of the best-kept secret. Their menu is very unique, and the fish is always fresh. I last came here a month ago, and on average, I've been coming here once a month, never get tired of their food.
Not that bad – That dude needs to get over one bad time. I order from here all the time. It is not the best sushi, but it decent for delivery, plus the size of the menu makes it an easy pick for everyone in the house. If you want solid food delivered to your house, this is the place. They are always nice and on time. Don't listen to that up tight review....it's ok!
So bad. Will I ever be able to eat sushi again! – Before moving to SF I wasn't that keen on sushi. But living here redeamed my hope, and I found some amazing places and even started to crave sushi. Then after searching for somewhere that delivered sushi along came this place. Even knowing that their resturant was generally pretty empty. The california roll was made incorrectly (how do you even do that!) it was dry, and made me wrech a bit. The gyoza looked promising until you realized it was soaked in grease and gave a weird after taste. The Tobiko one of our favourites was incredibly fishy (a strong sign of it being off) that we actually had to spit it all out. In the end the only thing that was any good was the sake, which given the weird flavors of the fish probably helped stop us from being food poisioned.
