In the 1990s I lived in Sausalito and discovered a wonderful little Japanese restaurant on Caledonia Street where I ate at least twice a week for a number of years. Time marches on, now I live in Napa and Fuku-suke has moved to Larkspur. Because neither my wife nor I drive after dark it has been difficult for us to get to Fuku-suke, which is open only for dinner. But once or twice a year we get to the Larkspur location. We were there last Sunday and were pleased to find our old friends, Mama-san serving and her son Warren-san in the kitchen are still there and it is better than ever with a much-expanded menu and the same meticulously prepared dishes. I have never had better sashimi and my wife loves their Bento box. The place is small and a bit out of the way, but for top notch Japanese food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere, Fuku-suke is an excellent choice.

Really good and affordable sushi. We had a great time and were particularly pleased that "crab meat" means crab meat and not the cheap alternative crabsticks. Great selection of specials. And the scallop nigiri were massive and to die for!

This quaint little Japanese restaurant has been in Marin for decades. The quintessential Mamasan runs her restaurant with energy and solid dishes. The udon is delicious as is the sukiyaki. The bento box has a light, crisp tempura and a tender teriyaki chicken. Many nights a wait is required to get a table. This a small place. It's worth the wait. There's no fusion or sushi bar. Just a few tables with benches run by a little lady who gives receives hugs on a regular basis.

If you are looking for an ethnic relief from "basalmic reductions, kale, figs etc" and local atmosphere, this Japanese strip mall family run restaurant meets the criteria.

Their is a great little Traditional Japanese spot. Very simple and good. If you want good bento box with teriyaki and tuna rolls this is perfect. Not for people who want big elaborate and exotic sushi. Very sweet staff and good service.
