The restaurant serves some of the best Japanese food i ever had. The monster rolls were perfect and so were the tuna rolls. The atmosphere was quiet and the service perfect. I'd love love to return there.

Nice and friendly staff. Reasonable prices but food is average. We had edamame and gyoza for apps. The edamame came out slightly warm. My husband ordered a chicken teriyaki dish. It was very disappointing, per him. My daughter and I had 3 sushi rolls. The Godzilla, a speciality roll- SF, and spicy tuna roll. All were okay but the Godzilla... More

My daughter was craving sushi so we drove to Sweet Ginger based on the reviews here. We found it just as the other reviewers did--family owned and operated with a very friendly and attentive atmosphere. It is small with an open feel from the huge windows. Food was very fresh, deliciously prepared, and fairly priced--a great combination. Highly recommended!

We arrived just after opening evening hours on a weekday. We did take-out of a few select sushi items. The miso soup was traditional, hot, and nutritious. The age-dashi tofu was typically bland, but with a good dipping-sauce. The dynamite roll was solid value, hearty (as sushi goes) and very flavorful. The dragon roll was good too. The Monster roll...

Often overshadowed by its well known competitor Sushi Ran, this place should not be overlooked. Family run and friendly, the food is always very good and reasonably priced. The setting is lovely, all glass with a view of the beautiful park across the street and of the little shops down Caledonia Street, and you can sit indoors or out, where... More

A neighborhood type of eatery, nothing fancy, just good basics. I couldn't tell if the sushi chef or the waitress were Japanese or Korean. But I can tell you the food is good! We had sushi rolls, soup, salad and sashimi. All fresh and tasty!

The food is good. Not the worlds best best but good enough. The people are nice. Service is good. Not too expensive. Good for a quick bite to eat.

We are locals and have been eating here for over a decade. I'll be the first to admit that Sweet Ginger is no Sushi Ran, but as parents most nights we're not looking for a destination restaurant, just a place to feed our family without breaking the bank. Sweet Ginger offers good Japanese food at relatively decent prices for Sausalito.... More
