I have been to Mt View for sushi several times, but haven't been here since last week. I was pleasantly surprised to find a good sushi place near Castro. The place is small and packed, but the wait is well worth it. The sushi was extremely fresh. I will definitely go back again.
Sushi Tomi Is Good Stuff: It's with mixed feelings I write this review.
I went for the first time last night. It was Thursday - on a whim - I made a reservation for two. It was a good whim as by 7:00 there were people standing up and down the sidewalk waiting to get into the joint.
The restaurant isn't huge. The atmosphere isn't spectacular, but the fish is the best I've had on the peninsula.
The thick, very fresh, slices of fish are served on perfect rice. For those of you who really like sushi, you'll know how important good rice is.
Everything tasted extremely fresh - from the miso, to the toro. Even the pickled ginger (gari) was some of the best I've had.
Sushi Tomi won't be an everyday indulgence though as the prices weren't cheap. $4 for 2 pieces of nigiri. Dinner for two was $60+ when all was said an done.
As I mentioned - this review is written with mixed feelings as I almost hate to have more people to compete with for seats.
Absolutely the best sushi in the bay area. Skip the menu and go straight for the omakase option and allow the chefs to select whatever is particularly good that day. Beyond sushi, they also offer a full menu of delicious traditional Japanese fare
one of the best japanese restaurants! the service is a bit slow and apparently word about this place has spread, so it gets busy and there's usually a wait. but, it's totally worth it. the sashimi is so good -- it will melt in your mouth. i've been a couple times and have been impressed with everything i eat. i highly recommend it!!
My favorite sushi-Japanese restaurant for lunch.
Sushitomi has different lunch specials each day, so its a good way to try new things.
They have traditional dishes as well as ones you don't see often.
The fish tastes fresh and the food is good. So far, I've never been disappointed.
The place gets busy during lunch time but I've never had to wait(get there before noon).
The prices are very reasonable, especially for the specials and combos.
hands down some of the best sushi I have had. Spicy tuna rolls, hand rolls, California rolls, Unagi are all yummy! We tried some local Sake and I was not very impressed but they do have more $$ imported stuff (next time). Overall authentic Japaneese food, small resto, nice ambiance. And you might have to take of your shoes and dine in true Japanese fashion. Will definitely go back!
Now that I read other reviews, maybe I should go hunt down the online group that others mention and join it - apparently locals signing up for it get insider information.
Their menu had plenty of variety, including a good set of choices for their combination dinner. The sushi was fresh, the rest of the food flavorful... it was a bit set-off from the rest of the restaurants on Castro but obviously well-known and frequented, as there was a line (not so long as to be discouraging) around 8pm on a Monday night.
Went here for lunch because of the reviews I saw and I would say I was a little disappointed. I ordered the Sushi lunch plate which has some rolls and Nigiri. I found that that the taste of each was variable, the Salmon was really good, Hamachi and Halibut were ok but the Tuna was disappointing. I also am not sure I like having the skin left on the side of the fish, and that is mostly what I got on that day. The rolls were ok but the seaweed came away from two of the rolls which makes it messy to eat. When I asked about it they kind of appologized but said that's what happens when they make the rolls sometimes. Well I've been to many sushi places and I have never seen that before. The waitress I had was very friendly with everything but when I wanted to get my bill and leave I had to wait another 15 minutes because they had made a mistake on another bill and where constantly using the credit card machine to resolve it. The other lady that tended to the counter was not very friendly at all but she never waited on any tables so it was not a big deal. Overall I'm glad I tried the place and it was not a bad sushi lunch but I think I would find other Japanese places to go to before returning here.
