    There is this box on the menu that gives you access to many things at a reasonable price, considering most sushi places are expensive to eat. Besides they have a green tea cheesecake that is magic!

    We splurged a little on the lobster filet mignon roll and it was definitely worth it. Has definitely set the standard for specialty rolls. Well worth every penny!

    The fiery bincyo is a lovely, lovely starter. The signature rolls are absolutely delicious too - not traditional, but really interesting fusion stuff. Delicious. Strong recommend.

    Choose from a fabulous array and very inventive sushi selections. Some of which are pretty much to die for. Pic below is called Sake Garden.

    I never leave tips but this place is incredible! The sashimi quality is better than I've ever tasted. The presentation is original and the desserts will make you wish you hadn't eaten as much.

    Want a filling veggie meal for lunch? Try the veggie bento box called Garden of Eden. So many little things to eat and all so yummy.

    In addition to an array of creative rolls and small dishes (we liked the super dynamite roll and the buna beni), be sure to stop in on Monday or Tuesday to enjoy 50% off their wine and sake list

    Where do I start? Get the Pyramid of Tartare, the Fiery Bincyo, the King Raffi roll, and the Avocado Top Roll. All so amazing!

    Hamachi nigiri, seaweed salad are great but the rolls are underwhelming. Killer tunes & sweet vibe but more a place to be seen then to experience amazing food

    Yeah this place is really good. Fresh and fun scene. Low key. The avocado roll was a fav. Get the pyramid as an app!

    Great fish. A lounge feel with anime films playing on the walls. The kitchen dishes also shine along side the sushi bar.

    Incredible sashimi. It's been since I've been a bit afraid of my food (shrimp heads), but it's was worth it. Amazing.

    The name says it all. Japanese anime porn on the TV displays helps spice up the dining experience, in case you're too scared to order the funkier rolls.

    The Basil Gimlet is good and goes well with sushi. Also, the dragon roll is great.

    Start with the garlic edamame and check the board for which nigiri is fresh.

    All the deserts are amazing, but the best way to end your meal is with the green tea cheesecake and green tea ice cream. SooOOooo gooood!

    eh. i'd say the ambiance is more of a draw here than the food. anime, dj's, happy hour specials. the place is always pretty packed though - so at least you know the fish is relatively fresh...

    Highly overrated and overpriced. Check out Live Sushi over on Potrero Hill for a much better Sushi dinner.
