Cheapest, smallest and thinest sushi I have ever tasted in my life – I am originally from Sapporo, Japan where the best town for the most foods(especially seafood).
I am telling you IF YOU LOVE SUSHI PLEASE DON'T GO because you will be disappointed unless you are drunk(well, the restaurant located around many bars).
"Neta"(Row fish on rice=sushi) has very little "umami" so that you won't taste anything but rice.
Umami is a taste that is characteristic of monosodium glutamate and is associated with meats and other high-protein foods. It is sometimes considered to be a fifth basic taste along with sweet, sour, salty, and bitter.
Sushi Chefs are not experienced. The way they cut sashimi(sashimi is the same as Neta but Sashimi indicates by itself and Neta is always on rice) and made rolls, it appeared to me that they were just hired as sushi Chefs trainees.
Kitchen foods were more than average. Serves was good.
I felt like I spent $28 in Chinese Buffet which usually charges $8.99.
If you happened to be there, get some sakes and something spicy rolls or kitchen foods.
If you can avoid this place please do and go somewhere else.
A TIP to real sushi lover
Good sushi is composed of goor rice and good fish.
Good rice is cooked and cooled off properly with vinegar.
Good fish has enough amount of umami.
Worth a try for all-you-can-eat – When I read the reviews for this place on this site, I was a little worried by the negative comments made by some people. However, after my first visit to Sushi Hunter, I'm happy to say it was a pleasant dining experience. It was a slow night with only 4 other tables sat. While not the biggest or most exotic all-you-can-eat menu, it definitely had some winners on it. The tuna, albacore, yellowtail, salmon and seared tuna were all very fresh and delicious. The seaweed salad was also tasty. I particularly enjoyed the gyoza. I ordered 3 different rounds of food and each dish came within a reasonable 10-15 minutes. My only concern for the dinner was how the fish were cut and prepared for the nigiri. The fish looked like they were cut in a rush with a dull knife, which caused some pieces of fish to appear torn. As an avid sushi eater, I like my nigiri to look whole and fresh. The service was good with friendly servers. At $22.95, its a good deal for decent quality sushi. I'm definitely going to try this place again.
Don't go Hunting here, ok sushi – I didn't go in expecting much because they had an "all you can eat" menu. But I ordered from their regular menu and got the Philly Roll, Spicy Scallop and a specialty roll I have never heard of but sounded good. The portions were about par for the price but the quality was not more than a 5 on a 1-10 scale. The worst part was the Scallops were "fishy" and anyone that eats raw fish on a regular basis would know this is turned (bad). But I shouldn't fault the whole experience on one roll. The service was good and the staff was very pleasant. The atmosphere was fine. But I won't return.
Excellent Sushi – this place is great for anyone who loves sushi. they have an amazing variety of rolls and the entrees are tasty as well. the staff is very friendly and helpful. this has become one of my regular spots. I come here at least 3 or 4 times a month. i don't know why people are saying the fish is not fresh. it's delicious. definitely a place to go!
Great sushi at a great price – This place has nice, fresh sushi, and an extensive all-you-can-eat menu that includes most popular sushi items as well as appetizers, soup and entrees. I always bring friends there, and have yet to be disappointed. The restaurant has a nice decor - including a great plasma TV. And they deliver for free! (at least to locations in N Beach - not sure about other neighborhoods).
Slow service and far from fresh food – We were in the North Beach area during our vacation and I love sushi so we decided to eat here. We went on a Monday night and the service was very slow, the sushi was not fresh at all. My boyfriend had the Bento box dinner and the chicken tasted undercooked and extremely dry. We had the worst dinner here during our entire trip. If you like pretty things on the wall and don't care about how the food tastes, then this is your place. Otherwise I say find another sushi restaurant.
Always a good Time! – I love going to Sushi Hunter... The Rolls are Tasty, And I love that they have ESPN on all the time... I think its well priced and a great place to go with a group... Can't wait till the next time I'm there...
fav sushi in n beach – This isn't the best sushi I've ever had, but it's in a great location and has a good all you can eat menu. This is a fun place to head to before you go out in North Beach. Good drinks and yummy sushi. My boyfriend likes it because it plays espn all the time so we can catch whatever game is on while we're eating.
All you can eat – This place has a cheap all you can eat menu which is killer! Also plays espn (odd for a sushi place) which makes it a great place to chill even if you're eating alone.
somebody pinch me, I must be dreaming – I always feel a little naughty when I come here, as though I'm doing something which is probably illicit. Never have I had the option to gorge myself as much sushi as can handle, all made to order, and leave with a bill for two under $50. Does Sushi Hunter serve fish of the highest quality? No. Are the plate presentation and atmosphere top-notch? Again, no. However, if you've ever fantasized about writhing in a vat of raw fish and soy sauce, forced to eat your way out, then this is THE place to go.
I've been told that it can be a little loud on weekends, but I don't know from firsthand experience. Then again, anyone who goes to an all-you-can-eat place on a weekend in North Beach should know what they're getting themselves into.
