This sushi bar and lounge serves up a wide variety of fresh sashimi, inventive seafood dishes, and specialty cocktails. Read on to learn more about this fish lover’s haven in Outer Richmond.
Happy hour is hard to beat. SF Weekly even voted it one of the best in the Bay Area. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily, enjoy specials like $3–$4 appetizers, $3 draft beers, and $8 specialty cocktails. On Monday–Thursday, the maki rolls are also 25% off.
The food’s so fresh it’s still alive. Some of it, at least. You can order live scallops, uni, and orange clams, provided they’re in season.
It’s a sushi lover’s dream. The extensive menu includes a huge selection of sashimi and nigiri and more than 40 maki rolls, including the popular Romeo & Juliet roll with salmon, avocado, fresh scallop, tobiko, and a touch of spicy mayo.
Don’t skip the cocktails. Many of the specialty drinks are classics made with a Japanese spin. Try the lychee “martini”—lychee-infused premium sake—or the strawberry sake mojito—shochu, nigori sake, strawberry, and mint.
