VERY VERY BAD! STAY AWAY!
After recently learning that my girlfriend was decidedly unenthusiastic about sushi, I decided to take her out for some and see if I couldn?t change her mind. There are a ton of sushi options in the Richmond district, but I vaguely recalled going to Nagano with friends at some point in the past and enjoying it, so I thought I?d give it another try. Big mistake! Either I was remembering incorrectly or this place has gone on a serious downhill slide sometime in the past year or so. Both the food and service were the worst I have had the misfortune to endure anytime in recent memory. The fish was so far from fresh I started to half seriously wonder if this restaurant supplies itself from the dumpsters of other neighborhood sushi joints. Words I would use to describe the sashimi: Chewy, fishy, slimy, hard and suspect. The rolls were sloppily made, falling apart before I even touched them with my chopsticks. The only thing worse than the food was the service. They brought out my girlfriend?s food a full 15 minutes before mine arrived. After I ordered my meal I decided that I wanted a soda, but not only did no one ever come by at any point during our meal to see if we wanted anything else or ask how we were doing, when I tried to flag a server down I had trouble getting them to even make eye contact with me. Same deal when it was time for the check. And no, before you ask, the place did not seem to be particularly busy. All in all, a horrible dining experience. Needless to say, it did not convince my girlfriend that sushi is the treat I (usually) consider it to be. At $50.00 for two people, the crappy food and service was not even made up for by low prices. With so many sushi choices in this part of town, only a fool or a masochist would eat here.
