Favorite Sushi in the city

Excellent option for everyone. A little out of the way but well worth it. Love the tuna options. Great edamame and wasabi and sushi and cucumbers and everything.

Great sushi in SF

the sushi here is probably one of the best in SF for this price. Great atmosphere but it's in a very small place. Definitely worth checking out!

bigger ..not better

Not sure what the buzz is about. I am a food professional and eat in amazing sushi spots across the US and beyond (Tsukiji market is fish heaven) Sushi Bistro is comfortable and likeable but the fish was not. HUGE portions of poor quality sashimi is not what good sushi should be. The tuna was dyed. The rolls on the menu read well but the execution was not there...soggy and not balanced. Too bad because we wanted to ... view more

Great local sushi

Lots of energy, always busy, always fast. It's a great mix of local people and is a popular scene with the USF crowd. We get take out every week or two and are always pleased with the quality. They have a lot of unique rolls that are worth trying.

Awesome Sushi!

This is my favorite sushi place in SF. It can be hard to get a table some nights, but it is always worth it. My favorite is the Spicy Girl Tuna appetizer made with white tuna and macadamia sauce. The ""spring"" lettuce wrap is another fav. The fish has always been super fresh and perfectly prepared in my experience.

Not good nigiris at all. Fish untasty and inflated with water

I do not agree with the good reviews here. We went there based on very good reviews here and on some other sites. We ordered 10 Nigiris each (combo), and one time 6 nigiries and 8 Californian rolls to be shared. \r\n\r\nThe rolls were good, wherever they were not like any other Californian Rolls we've eaten anywhere else. No nori. They were made of rice and sesame, with crab in the middle.\r\n\r\nThe Nigiris were awf... view more

unbelievable sushi!!!

Went to San Francisco for vacation in February 2008. My husband and I did our research to find a great sushi place, and decided on Sushi Bistro. We loved it so much that we went back two nights later, when we had all of San Francisco's fine eatieries to choose from! We dreamt of ""Hot Love"" after our first experience, an appetizer that is a MUST TRY! We have eaten sushi in AZ, other parts of CA, FL, NC, Brazil, ... view more

Fresh Sashimi ever!

Their sashimi is so far the best on my list. It is fresh that requires not biting... it melts inisde your mouth,and thats what I called ""real"" japanese sushi/ sashimi. Prompt seating? They tried... but its a little unfair... they give the best seats to the Caucasians... if you are one, then congradulations. The Sushi chef was amazing... sitting in front of the sushi bar can make conversation with this young, talent... view more

Shafted @ Bistro

On 09.15.07 Saturday evening we walked in and were told it will be 45 minutes. After 40 minutes walked in to check again, we were told that he was sitting reservations first and did not know how long it would be. My wife and I had our cousin and 7 year old nephew out of town who's nuts about sushi. We were looking forward to this meal all day and had bitter sushi at the end.\r\n\r\nNext time I would walk in, ask for ... view more
