MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Set back in an ordinary strip mall, the vibe and service at this sushi jewel are anything but. Wonderful, warm, and gracious, diners here are in for a treat. The interior is sleek and stylish, with dramatic pressed-tin ceilings and a coveted eight-seat counter. Naturally, reservations are a must, especially for the omakase, complete with items that can hang with the best in San Fran.

Fans of nigiri should make a beeline for the chef's selection, but the more discerning palate will revel in market specials, like silky Hokkaido scallops, sweet and succulent live spot prawns (with the traditional deep-fried heads alongside), as well as firm yet delectable octopus. Everything is minimally dressed—all the better to accentuate the product's supreme quality.
