We stumbled upon Delica. It was just what we were looking for. I had the tuna hand roll. Super fresh tuna. And i also had the shrimp patty. The patty is like 5 fresh, whole shrimp, bundled together and then fried with a batter. Delicious. It is served with a yummy tartar sauce! And then you have the option to... More

Busy lunch place and consequently felt very rushed. The food looked great, presentation was very good, but it turned out to be rather bland. Hard to find the salmon in the salmon chowder! If you in a rush it's fine, but there are plenty of other options.

The shrimp cake was amazing, the pork cutlet and soba soup also very good. We were pleased with our quick snack from this little restaurant in the ferry building. We ate cafeteria style at the long tables outside. Not sure if they have table service inside.

Table service is slow so I favor their takeout options. Favorites sell out quickly because everything is fresh and made in small batches. Sushi us good but nothing extraordinary. Get your carry out and sit on benches on the water.

I come here for healthy salad options, that typically are not the run of the mill offerings you can find in an average deli. There are some seaweed salads, some with mushrooms, and often have a sesame or soysauce based taste. Sometime very good but sometimes you have to wonder who is putting these salads together. I would suggest people... More

We decided to join the queue and purchase lunch at the deli counter. The salmon chowder was hot and extremely tasty, the best I have ever had. My daughter chose the combination plate salad which she watched being freshly prepared. We also shared a dungeness crab croquette, which was very ' meaty' and satisfying. Followed by 2 cold speciality teas.The... More

One of the few if not the only "Delica's" not in Japan. Kind of a Japanese version of a Deli with delicious take out lunches made with care and the finest ingredients. So tasty and healthy, well-designed and the owners support non-profits so commendations to the management of this fine, reasonably priced eating establishment.

Having lived in San Francisco for 9 years, I have been to Delica many times. Their Bento Boxes are delicious! The green been salad is something I love to eat along with the meet rice and one other salad. The Ferry Building is wildly popular because there are so many delicious options. Plan on a crowd and taking your Bento... More

We have a place in Oakland and consider it worth it to take BART or the Ferry to Delica just for the Wasabi Potato Salad. This place is often very busy, but the line moves quickly and if you can score a bench outside, it's a good day. Containers of food can be taken anywhere, though. Everything else we've ever... More
