We love trying different omakase in S.F., and this one was particularly excellent—interesting, unexpected, delicious. We had the nigiri omakase option, and the fish was excellent, on par with other high end sushi restaurants in S.F. But what really stood out were the vegetarian courses in the meal. Each was perfectly prepared, with subtle yet complex flavors. Every small dish was exquisite and completely different. The food was beautifully presented and the service was outstanding—friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. It was a cold night, and the waiter brought us fresh mugs of steaming green tea again and again. Even the tea was particularly high quality and well prepared—flavorful with no bitterness. Of the many Japanese restaurants we have tried in S.F. and elsewhere outside of Japan, this one seemed wonderfully authentic. Reminded us of meals at minshukus in Japan with so many little dishes, each a delight. Will definitely return.
