Massive Rodent Problem + Contaminated food

I use to work for Yum Yum fish and so did one of my friends.

3 words of caution: MASSIVE RODENT PROBLEM.

The place is not sanitary and a lot of the stuff is contaminated.
Before closing every night the boss puts out some rat poisoning onto some avocados on a tray. In the morning, they wash off the rats droppings (which is everywhere) on the floor but they don't clean the container area and the cloth that is used to wipe the bowls and sushi plates, more than once, I've seen rat droppings in the cloth bag.

I'm honestly surprised that no one has gotten sick yet. Aside from the rats, there are also a lot of flies and the overall cleanliness of the place is almost none existent.

Yum yum fish use to be one of my favorite places to go to but a few years back, they changed owners and it has gone down hill from there.

The sushi is good but after working for them, I stopped eating there. Thought about reporting them but didn't want to get into the mess.

If you value your health, eat elsewhere

fresh fish great value

This place is a must if you live in the sunset or richmond districts. The fish is always fresh and delicious, and if you order by the pound (or half, or quarter pound) it is so cheap it's practically daylight robbery. seriously, a pound of salmon for ~$11? Plus $2 for them to slice it for you. The only con to this place is that I'd say only ~75% of the time is the fish amazing. Don't get me wrong, the other 25% of the time it's good, just not amazing like the other times. Also, sometimes the cuts of fish still have a little bit (tiny sliver really) of skin on it which I don't like. As I almost always order take-out I will in these cases slice off the skin at home. Regardless, this place is amazing and one of only 3-4 regular places I would eat at while living in the outer Richmond district. Enjoy! And be willing to give it more than one chance

i simply wanted fresh tuna so i could prepare some tuna tartar tonight. i called 30 minutes before hand to ask if their tuna was fresh enough so i could make my tartar tonight and when it was shipped to them. yes, and this morning.

pleased, i picked some up and brought it home to find it SMELLY AND SOFT. i returned to their fish market 20 minutes later for a refund and the owner was a RUDE RUDE RUDE RUDE, telling me that he can't sell it to another customer so he wouldn't give me my money back. he said that he didn't know what I did to it because i'd taken it out of his fish market. frankly, he shouldn't have sold it to anyone else. it WASN'T FRESH as he told me on the phone an hour earlier.

the sushi is fair, but the market part is unacceptable and the owner's customer service crappy. i'll never go back even though i used to like them.

Fresh and cheap, couldn't ask for more!

New to the city and had to find fresh fish because there are so many sushi restaurants in the city. This shop is actually a fish shop that has a sushi chef making sushi mostly togo. There are 3 small tables so not ideal for large group dining. The fish is immaculately fresh. I have had sushi all over the states and this is as fresh as it gets. And most amazing is the price. Hamachi belly and toro for $2 a piece. I wanted to try everything!! I can't recommend this place more if you're not caring too much for ambiance, but love great sushi.

Freshest sushi in the city!

Hands down, my favorite ""quickie"" sushi place. The sushi here is cheap, fresh, and fairly creative. I love the yellowtail with mango roll, for example. Prices can't be beat, and the fish is the freshest I've had. This isn't a place for a nice, sit-down meal, however. Your best bet is to order take-out and eat it at home or go to Golden Gate Park for a nice picnic.

Good Sushi For Cheap

Yum Yum Fish is Japanese owned and operated. It's 1/2 fish market, 1/2 sushi counter, so the fish used in the sushi is extremely fresh, and is sold at or near wholesale price. For example, a 2-piece order of maguro here is $2.40; at any other decent sushi restaurant, it'll be around $4.00. This is more of a ""deli"" style place, and it closes at 7:30, so it's not a place you'd go to for a nice dinner. But it is great if you want to get great, fresh fish at a cheap price. They have a few small tables for dining in, too. Service is always good.

Best fish in the world ?

Bar none the best quality fish in the city, the bay area, or perhaps the world !

One can easily spend three times as much for sushi that is almost (but not quite) as good, sure you will get 'ambiance' and a 'waiter' -- but if you want masterfully prepared fresh fish then head over to yum yum.

The Best

With the exception of the sushi place on the 100 block of rue Dauphine in Paris, this is the best sushi spot in the world . . . and it's less expensive. Akiko's (Mason Street) also is out of this world, but Yum Yum Fish is the cheapest you will find in the City. Combination of quality and price cannot be beat. I love it there, and often I'll time it so I can get a table.

take out

Most of the business here is takeout. The sushi business shares space with a tiny fish market. You can fit 2-3 at the tiny tables for a quick lunch bite but not really a dine-in kind of place. Their prices went up again recently and a large platter to feed a party crowd costs over $50, still reasonable compared to other places. Great place to order some quick sushii to take home.

The best

Doesn't get better than Yum Yum. Large portions and low prices. Very limited seating though.

Look for the O-Toro.
