late night sushi!.
this was a great late night spot to run into as my friends were grudgingly trying to accept burgers for dinner and the painful realization that our normal sushi spots were all closed.
as we were about to turn in for the burger spot; we realized that we saw the magical words, "open" and "sushi." Eureka, they're open and we still have a good amount of time left to chow down (closing was 12am)..
order the amazing unagi... i think that ends this review.. ^_^
Local sushi restaurant at the foot of the Castro.. InShort A relatively plain interior with plenty of room for groups sets the stage at this Castro eatery offering basic sushi with a few variations. The restaurant draws a moderate crowd during the evenings, but there's rarely a wait. Sushi options range from the expected (California rolls, tuna rolls, eel rolls, etc.) to the uncommon (the Church roll includes deep-fried asparagus and mango).
the sushi is good and such a great value! the large salad is LARGE. the dragon roll and spicy tuna rolls are yummy. this place is much better than no name (across the street). the sushi chefs are super nice as well.
ther is better available at this price.
Based on the ratings of others, my girlfriend and I took a chance on this place. Yes it was quite affordable, but the sushi was very dissappointing and the service poor. The ebi rolls were not fresh - the shrimp was mushy and tasted odd (we sent them back) The california rolls lacked texture and flavor. I was afraid to find out what anything raw might have been like. or table was never cleared of any appetizer plates, wine glasses, etc before the main dish so we had to put out items on another table to make space. What we had that was ok were the cucumber rolls, miso soup and the chicken teryaki. There was a steady number of people in the restaraunt..but I'm not sure why - there is better even at these prices.
Good Honest Sushi.
Miyabi is a wonderful small sushi restaurant- the Sushi is always fresh, and the service is great. It's not as hip 'n' trendy as, say, Tokyo Go Go, but for good, honest, tasty sushi and friendly service, you can't beat it.
