Great gimmicky sushi and girlie drinks.
I got scared the buhgeeze out of eating raw fish after a lifetime of guzzling authentic and raw nigiri zushi a couple of years ago. I'll spare you the details but I still love going to sushi bars and this is one of my favorites- great Little Fried Things In Cute Pockets- type dishes, completely inauthentic and funfunfun just like the crowd here! Definitely worth muscling up to the bar so you can get a high perch and a good look at the scene while you twirl your drink and enjoy the tasty specialty rolls. Yum!
Fresh and creative sushi.
Definitely one of my favorite sushi places and one of the best in the city, as the polls confirm. Fantastic, modern ambiance with that warehouse/loft feel typical in the Mission. Old foreign movies play on one wall while loud music thumps throughout.
The specialty sushi/sashimi menu is always great, as are the rolls. The sushi here is among the freshest I've had, and the combinations are very creative, rivaling Kabuto A&S in the Richmond. They don't take reservations unless you're a large party, so definitely get there before 8pm if you don't want to wait.
Last thing - great signature cocktails, a must try. Even if the written description sounds strange (i.e. cucumber sake gimlet), it's good.
Retro-futuristic decor and experimental Japanese cuisine define this ultra-hip Mission sushi bar..
Globe-shaped lights, white discs hanging from the ceiling, mod furniture and tangerine and bubblegum pink-hued walls evoke a "Jetsons" vibe.The deep space holds a cocktail bar, sushi bar, plenty of tables and chairs, and a loft dining area. Servers are all business, efficiently delivering heaping platters of sashimi without seeming rushed. A line of well-dressed 20-somethings stretches out the door almost every night.
Good place for a light, quick, early dinner. Stick to the handroll happy hour specials and order a $2 Kirin - it's a really good deal. Standouts are the dynamite and sunshine handrolls. Yum.
The best hang out place in SF.
Friendly!!! Very firendly, the waitress is so cute!!! Forgot her name tho. This is my favourite place to go in SF. I like to eat sushi and drink sake, and yet in a cozy environment, unlike sitting in a fine dining high class restaurant. I will go back to see my favourite waitress.
Tasty Sushi in the Mission.
Sushi was great--lots of speciality rolls to choose from. Loved the Azteca, Off The Wall, & Caterpillar rolls. Only dowfall was our server who wasn't very friendly & rushed us a bit. But sushi was good enough that we'd go back.
