I was having an 8 hour layover in San Francisco on my way to Austin, Texas and have decided to take the BART from the airport to downtown. I used to go to high school north of SF and so was quite familiar with the city. Got off on Powell and Market and walked around Union Square and such. Had... More

This was an unexpected late night supper after a drinks reception, so we wanted a light meal. Ryoko provided a great range of sushi, sashimi and other great meals, washed down with Japanese beer. Just right! The atmosphere was pretty loud and fun - great way to end the evening.

So this place doesn't have the greatest sushi in the world, but it's a fun vibrant place to eat. Relatively loud (but not too loud) club music and a real energy.

I tried this restaurant with some colleagues without looking anything special but after the first dish we were so happy to discovered a nice sushi bar with great sushi! We tried different stuff: from soups to sushi and sashimi and everything was really really good! We suggest this place! The servants rush all the time and sometimes service is not... More

Get there early and sign in for table! Great vibe and good dance music. Served up delicious food quickly with expansive menu and a lot of daily specials. Not your typical sushi bar! If looking for a quiet evening not your place. If want fun, terrific food and attentive service, check it out.

This is by far the best sushi place in San Fran... From the fresh fish from Japan to the Saki to the apps... don't go with a lot of people - you and a friend at the most. Sit at the bar if you can. Get some rolls, fresh raw fish and and saki ... tip the chef's and ask... More

A bit of a wait. When entering, go down the stairs and signup, waiters will come to call your name, when they have place for the amount of people you came with. Load music, always have a dj mixing tracks. Great sushi! Worth a visit. I come here every time I'm in the city.

Kong queues worth every min of wait.....Food was authentic and flavourful - staff were extremely efficient, friendly and obliging. Great place - a definitely must visit in SF.

we had the churashi which is slices of fish on rice. This is the best sashimi that I have had in the US. The fish was fresh and incredibly tasty. We got there just before it opened at 6pm and were able to be seated immediately. I highly recommend it.
