The menu at this tiny, nondescript Japanese venue includes organic & vegan dishes as well as sushi.- Google
"Minako has the best gluten free / vegan food in the city."
"Absolutely wonderful!"

As far as I understand, this restaurant is owned and run by a woman named Minako and her parents. Every time I've eaten here Minako was there, and took great care of us, making sure to recommend things that she thought we might enjoy more than others and making sure we had a great experience overall. You can tell a lot of thought and care goes into making the food as well; everything I've had here was delicious! The place itself has quite a lot of character as well. It's a small, intimate place and the menus are hand-drawn! Great place for a date.

This restaurant is outstanding. The food is very fresh and inventive, and the customer service is amazingly thoughtful. I seriously adore Judy and her endearing, talented mother, and will be back.

I came with a large group for a birthday dinner. Since the restaurant is small, we basically filled almost all the tables. We went with "chef's choice" to decide on the dishes to serve our group and they piled on dish after dish, like a banquet, so I got to try quite a few items. My friends all know I like to take pictures of everything I eat. Well, after a couple dishes, I stopped taking photos. The food just wasn't to my liking. The fish didn't taste very fresh. The brown rice rolls were just okay. We got a couple dishes of deep fried foods which were unappealing. I had been excited about the healthy and organic aspect of the cooking but I didn't eat anything that I liked enough to want to go back. Even the dessert they served us was plain agar agar (vegan gelatin) which is basically flavorless. For a $60 a person dinner, there are other places I would have rather eaten at.

Extensive menu featuring brown rice sushi with lots of vegan options, and everything we tried was great. Small space with a small (but friendly) team. A little pricey.

Never had sushi so good before. Everything was so flavorful. Daughter and mother own and run this place. Both are extremely pleasant. Daughter took the time to explain to us some of the dishes. Her personal recommendations about the seasonal fish were awesome. Will definitely put them on my list for a regular visit :-))

Went For: Saturday night dinner The Vibe: family-run restaurants with a LOT of quirks, rules and weirdness Special Dish: udon, vegan or organic Japanese Avoid Their: chicken teriyaki Price Point: HIGH, their price points are much higher for the same dishes elsewhere The Service: where do I start? Their strict rules and stiff personality made our eating experience very unenjoyable! Reservations: n/a FYI, FRIENDS: just be prepared to love it or hate it, there is no in between Eat up, Kimmie

Vegetarian Sushi. Yes, don't get that confused look with dead silence pause -- it exists. Vegetarian Sushi exists with a great menu of choices and flavors at Minako *Organic* Japanese Resturant. Minako is operated by a mother and daughter offering a unique experience of taste as you look through their self made menu. Vegetarians browsing a menu want an option to seek out Japanese food and its experience without having the sea/fish element. Bay Area -- San Francisco -- offer many choices for Vegan or Vegetarian eaters, but lacks on offering Sushi. Minako in the Mission neighborhood is a great choice. When you visit, ask: do you have any aged pickled plum? Pro Tip: Minako is opened only on: Wednesday through Sunday, from 5:30pm until 9pm. Arrive Early.

Top notch gluten free Japanese. Minako is incredibly knowledgeable about food allergies and they can accommodate a wide range of dietary restrictions in style. Not to mention that everything here is delicious!
