about sashimi when it comes to sushi. (Even thought they claim not to be a sushi bar!) As SFist's own Jay Barmann (writing for 7x7) notes, "expect some unique and gorgeous sashimi presentations, often involving the whole fish, artfully used as a serving vessel." "This under-the-radar, Outer Richmond spot stands apart from the others in that a) it came recommended to us by Ino-san at Ino Sushi, and Gomi-san is one of his oldest friends, and b) it's not strictly a sushi spot, but a Japanese restaurant with beautiful vegetable appetizers, fried tofu, and a ton of other stuff. But expect some unique and gorgeous sashimi presentations, often involving the whole fish, artfully used as a serving vessel."

I am in love with this restaurant. So many great things about it. I love the ambiance. Little, quaint space with some soft music setting the tone. The service is wonderful. And the food is incredible. I also love the fact that so much is traditional Japanese food that I am not familiar with. I would *kill* to have this restaurant in Arizona. I think that the only reason that this place wasn't hours deep in wait and priced through the roof might be that it's a bit of a hike from downtown? It was phenomenal though. First of all there is a huge, huge menu and it's pretty tough to determine what to order. They have each fish listed with 7-10 different preparations. Then there is a specials menu and a beer and sake menu. I'm pretty overwhelmed with all of it so I put myself in the hands of the lovely older ladies that man the restaurant and it always turns out great. My favorite dish is their ochazuke. If you're not familiar with it is basically a very simple dish where you pour tea over rice and add some savory toppings. With this version, the tea was actually replaced with a gorgeous bonito broth. You could have it with a selection of ume, cod roe, salmon, salmon eggs and maybe a couple other items. I've had it with ikura and salmon. Both were amazing. It also came with some fresh wasabi and some other condiments. Inside the bowl was some shaved nori, some pickled radish, some other herbs and something that looked like bee pollen? If I lived here, I'd swing by for this at least weekly (double in the winter). The flavors are super subtle but they are so clean and everything goes together just perfectly. I've had so many meals where the chef puts together combinations that don't better the ingredients. I've had many where the chef really does elevate the ingredients and then I've had a few dishes here and there where it's perfect. This was the latter. Can't wait to go back!

Great food. Very authentic Japanese food that I have never had in the US. There are usually tables available also. Don't understand why this restaurant with food hard to match in San Francisco and very reasonably prices always have tables, even on the weekend. Amazing value.
