After a long trek across the desert from Las Vegas, I was thrilled to get to the coast (yes, Oakland is close enough) to have sushi. It was great! I had the dragon sushi and spicy tuna. The warm sake was perfect for a cool summer night in the Bay Area.

Great sushi spot! This is one of my favorites in Oakland. Food is fresh and tasty and their sake box rules are so fun!! The only bummer last time we went we couldn't "save" our boxes as they ran out of room. The atmosphere is one of the best things about Coach - cozy and super welcoming. This is where... More

Great thing for me, not for 2 of my companions though who got quite tipsy on the never ending alcohol! Go if you’re in the mood to drink... More

Coach is a baseball coach. And when Coach is not coaching baseball, he is greeting every guest at his tiny lakefront restaurant, filling their saki box or saying goodbye to every patron that leaves the place. He is the ebullient face of a happy place, packed almost every night with lovers of fresh Japanese food. They have distinctive specials, we... More

Honestly, the food here is not all that. I can get this caliber sushi at a lot of other sushi bars. But two thumbs way up for the service. The owner and his wife really make sure you are enjoying your meal and enjoying your time at their restaurant. They make you feel right at home. Two more thumbs way... More

GREAT Atmosphere and great food. They have bottomless sake service for alcoholics. Reasonable prices. It's a small joint though
