I love Japanese food, and eat it frequently, but....
I am disgusted with the food and terrible service from Mitsu Restaurant. The 12 piece Hamachi Sashimi contained less actual fish than a 6 piece in almost every other places I have had it. The hamachi pieces were the smallest I have ever seen, and the hamachi fish was not even fresh, making the $29 price an insult at best. The Bento box with the main course of yellow tail literally contained 5 small bites of fish, the entire rest of the fish main course was large bones, fat and fins. Topping off the miserable food experience, their idea of customer service included serving the two of us at seperate times. The tea was cold. They are very over priced, the food quality was sub-standard, their customer service was horrible, the waiters english was extremely poor. The manager was rude, argumentative and dismissive. Maybe I just came on a bad day, or got unlucky, but I will definately never go back!
I have been going to the Mitsu ever since it opened. the owner, Sasha, is a gentle,soft spoken person who takes pride in the quality of food and service. the atmosphere is calm and relaxed and the food is delicious. The Miso soup, Bento Boxes, sushi and sashimi are top quality. Beautifully presented and delicious. Try all the items on the menu. haven't found one in all these years that i wouldn't order again! The Mitsu is a restaurant that is a favorite of local Pacificans.
We were shopping in Daly City and had a craving for Japanese food. We found this restaurant nearby and decided to try it. It turns out that this is a well-kept secret and we were lucky to find it. It's warm, inviting, and has been here for 19 years. The female sushi chef is the proprietor. She is from a city near Kyoto and does not serve anything that she wouldn't enjoy eating. The sushi is extremely fresh (on a Sunday night!) and delicious, as was the Yaki Niku beef. Every order over $13 gets free miso soup with oshinko salad and free green salad! This the best miso I've ever had (including in Japan). The oshinko was outstanding. Be sure to try the hawaiian sashimi (better than poke!). Excellent prices.
