Citysearch Editorial Review.
The signs outside this Outer Richmond eatery screaming "NO SUSHI" and "NO COMBINATION DINNER" are the first indication that this isn't your typical Japanese restaurant--and how. Oddly and sparingly decorated, the venue is unlike anything else in San Francisco--neither sushi bar nor izakaya, curry house nor teppanyaki joint. No, the impossibly authentic food here is something special and different all together: small dishes of seafood, meats and veggies delicately flavored and beautifully presented, the resulting table of family-style cuisine looking more like a museum exhibit than a dinner. Hungry diners need to enter with an open mind and adventurous palate--mackarel sashimi marinated in grated fresh wasabi and grilled uni topped with egg are sample items--and enough in the bank account to allow for two or three of the $6-$10 plates per person; portions are small, and flavors are so delicately balanced and intriguing that customers will want to try a bit of everything.
