Neighborhood Japanese spot where unusual ingredients make for twists on traditional sushi.- Google
"Hot Love - baby lobster, avocado and crab meat rolled in snapper."
"Aloha 101, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Hawaiian Breeze are the highlights."

I love this place. The rolls are delicious. Always a good selection of nigiri/sashimi. And they are very consistent. I've never had a bad meal here. Definitely get one (or more) of their signature rolls. A few suggestions - C-2, First Crush, or the Monster In Law if you like a little spice.

THe vegetarian menu for this place is amazing! I love the fact that each sushi roll has it's its own complimentary sauce. Hands down the best veggie sushi rolls I've ever had.

This not a review for a new place but a place I've been to again and again. Their unique items are their super-creative, one-of-a-kind rolls that really showcase what California-style sushi is all about. The "hot love' seared scallop roll with a mayo-cheesy sauce on top that has been broiled to perfection is a case in point. When I went a few days ago, I actually deviated from my goto and got the nabiyaki udon instead of their signature rolls, which was the bomb! The broth was super flavorful with a sweetness to it like sukiyaki broth/carmelized onions. I highly recommend this place. Make reservations at the Richmond (and the Mission) locations if you go.

Now this was brilliant. I've been to one or two mediocre sushi places in SF, but this is not one of them. I tried one of the brow rice rolls, the Red Devil. Absolutely recommendable! I'm sure to revisit.

Only been there once but will be back soon. We got 3 things and each one was a exemplary. That can't be a coincidence. Service is a bit stand offish but the food makes up for it.

This is a really tasty treat! The menu provides a good mix of unique and standard options, and everything we've had there was good (most were DELICIOUS). This is my favorite sushi place I've been to hands down. Nice wait staff, TVs, beer & wine, sake bombs, and a great ambiance. Love this place!!

I give this location 4 stars instead of 5 stars because it's not as good as the one in the Mission in atmosphere and service. The food however, is just as good, and I still think at this price point that it serves the best raw fish out of all the other comparable Japanese restaurants.

A friend from Mission district recommended this place. Very fresh, of course, with interesting special dishes like black snapper (ask what they have available). Great and very creative rolls, some of which were mind blowing. The lettuce wraps are particularly interesting, sort of a Korean-Japanese fusion. Even their nigiri offers a slight twist with creative use of subtle touches.
