A very cute little place with friendly service. The prices are what I'd consider mid-range (about $15 per person for a good sized roll + drink and dessert). I had the inhouse special called Mountain Rolls and it was delicious. I suspect it's a bit westernized as far as sushi goes, but it was very tasty. I believe it had crab and avocado in the filling, and it was topped with baked salmon and a sauce which tasted like thousand island and mayo. I highly recommend this. Someone in my company had the Sexy Rolls, which was also very good. I forgot what this was like exactly, but it had tempura and cream cheese in it. The Shiitake sushi was ok, kind of plain but I suppose it's meant to be that way (it was just nori maki, rice, and shiitake). They had mango and strawberry flavor mochi. If you get the mix, I suggest you eat the mango one first. While it is the better flavor of the two, it becomes bland if eaten after the slightly stronger flavored strawberry. I suspect they know this because they put the mango on top.
I eat here at least once a week. The service is great. They always bring out free Miso soup and Edemame, Osaka Sushi down the street doesn't do that! The fish is always fresh. It never smells. If you like spicy rolls, I suggest the Firecracker roll, the spicy tuna roll and super dynamite roll. The Meguro, Sake and Unagi sashimi are to die for! Last week they made a special roll on the house for my husband and I. It had jalapeno, cream cheese, spicy tuna and was deep fried. OMG...it was so spicy, but it was so so so good! I have taken all of my friends that love sushi here. There is never a wait. It is truly the hidden jewel of the Castro. I have never ever had bad service, even on a busy Friday or Saturday night.
I went to Warakabune Sushi with a friend of mine that is a regular there, I was so impressed with the quality of their food, and the cordiality or the employees, I also loved that you get to see the sushi before you eat since you sit at the bar and the sushi goes "aroun" in the little boats. The sushi is great, the place is small but very cozy. It's usually pretty packed after 8pm so I would recomend going in early right after is opens so you can get the best variety possible. I highly recomend the white tuna tataki, the tuna salada and the caterpillar roll!!!
This is a really classy spot on the embarcadero in the SOMA area. I went here with some friends on a friday and it was fairly packed but most people here come for the happy hour special. We went in for the dinner and they try to sell you on the sushi sampler. They make it sound great and it is but they don't tell you the price. Little did we know it was about 35 dollars a head for the sampler which barely made a dent in our appetite. Definitely over priced in my opinion but the ambiance and my main course was good so I will not drop it any more stars.
This place is right next door to my complex so its easy go down and get some food. The service is not good at all. They only have two waiters for the entire restaurant and therefore it takes them a long time to take the order or come back once the food is delivered. We always order out now. The food is still great when you get it home. They usually will give extra sauces if you ask for more. They are expensive but the sushi is definitely fresh and good. We usually order the chicken teriyaki dinner and two sushi rolls for two of us.
We're no food critic, me and my girlfriend decided to try to eat here since we've been hearing a lot of good things from friends and roommates. Very dissapointed! They were the smallest cuts of sushi we've ever eaten, same as for the tuna and the most expensive we've ever paid. Could not say it's a bad place since it was our first time, but it might take us awhile to save up to go back there, i bet they have other good stuff there but i won't recommend it to anyone who's hungry and on a budget.
This is the third sushi restaurant in this space in the last 6 years or so, and definitely the best. They have a great sake selection, unique rolls, friendly service, and all you can eat for both lunch (around $20) and dinner (around $25). Its everyone or no one when it comes to all you can eat (everyone on the table orders it, since you cant have one person do it and share). We eat here maybe 2x a month, and its a favorite and definitely one of the better sushi places in this neighborhood
I love Trader Vic's in Atlanta. It's campy, old school and untouched in 40+ years. I expected more of the same with the Tonga Room and it is just way over the top. The pool was cool with the bandstand in the middle. The rain and thunder was definitely campy if a bit underwhelming. We did visit for dinner which I won't be doing again. Service was great, food was barely average but prices we're crazy. Do yourself a favor and just come to visit that bar, enjoy the drinks and the show.
I sat in the main section with five friends. We had a reservation and had no problems getting seated. The food was really good and the prices were pretty reasonable for the high quality. This place has some really good sake choices too. Just ask the waiter/waitress. The service is kinda slow, but its not really a problem if you plan on spending time at the restaurant.
Yes, the menu is rather limited, but the quality of their raw fish absolutely awesome ! I've been going here at least twice a month for maybe 8 months now and I have yet to be disappointed from the freshness. Chef is great too in telling me if the uni is fresh for the day or not. A definite great find!
