Sushi Boat Restaurant
Look carefully for this downtown sushi bar or you might miss it. The tiny entrance has stairs that immediately lead downstairs to a cozy, traditionally spare Japanese dining room. Filling the center of the room is an imposing sushi bar, circled by boats ferrying a shifting selection of fresh sushi. To the side are booths where one can order exactly the sushi selection one wants without having to grab it off a moving target. The staff is brisk and efficient, and the prices are reasonable.
I've been to over 10 sushi places around SF, some of the priciest, I've found that some of the best bargains and food come from the least known places, and this is DEFINITELY one of them, highly recommended for a secret spot that is easy to miss
OMG, my BF and i went here several weekends ago and the sushi was so nasty!
the texture seemed fresh, yet tasted rotten. very freaky. just some of the bad stuff i had -- amaebi, hotate, white tuna, hamachi. they were out of uni and no quail egg for my salmon egg. oh well.
I work near this place and have tried them over the last year somewhere around 15 times. I am not going back.
The counter seats by the fish boats are pretty quick and cheap, but other than that the sushi is uninspired, stale and repetitive. They do alot of krab with a *K*...
Don't even bother trying takeout. They can not get an order right to save their lives, and they repeatedly loose orders so that you wind up waiting for longer than it would have taken to sit at the counter and cram down a quick bite.
Today I noticed they only had a 95 on their inspection post. Heh... sushi that's 95% fresh? I don't think so....
Almost missed this sushi bar and if it wasn't for our wandering to specifically locate a Sushi Restaurant we would have. The entrance leads immediately downstairs to a small dining area, in the center a sushi bar, circling it a stream carrying boats ferrying a constant array of fresh sushi. At the bar a small price list based on the design of the plates. There are tables and booths to the sides and the feel is very intimate regardless of the fact you are seated next to a stranger. I was not a fan of sushi, but no denying, I am now. Still have yet to eat Raw Fish, but had plenty of other delectable choices floating my way. Stop by and enjoy a great Japanese Sushi Bar.
Picture this: Tiring day walking in downtown SF near Union Square and hunger strikes. You could fork over a few bucks @ the local Burger King, but your intestines will make you pay for it later. Walk a few more blocks onto the art gallery street of SF(south of Union Square) and look for the Japanese sign that marks where you want to be. Yes, you will be going underground for this nourishment.(stairs) The polite staff will ask if you want to sit @ the sushi bar with it's actual cute boats carrying scrumptious sushi or a more private table. The restuarant is not large, but comfortable with it's authentic looking Japanese screen and hip Japanese pop music. They have the classic sushi: california rolls, tempura rolls, avocado rolls, etc. I would however like to recommend the spider rolls and excellent miso soup. Not a sushi person? Try the skinless chicken teryaki bento box which includes a salad, rice, and you can add fried tempura.(which is great by itself if you can't eat a lot) Have saki if you must, but the hot green tea is the all digestion help
you will need. After this delicious meal, the hardest part about leaving this establishment are the stairs leading back to the surface and back into the bustle of SF.
