The dishes were surprisingly prepared and one of my new favorite places. The soba noodles were just perfect and the sashimi was fresh. The food tasted like if you were in Japan!

Sorry to rain on the '5-star' parade going on around here, but for us, several reasons made Minako a definite "no-repeat" experience:

1.) While the lure of 'organic' does imply SOMEWHAT higher prices, the pricing is highly unreasonable for the quantity of food you actually get. We ordered wakame salads, which turned out to be tiny for $8.00 each. Plus, the flavor of these salads was very unappetizing. (As the appetizer prices are omitted from the menu, we only learned JUST how disappointed we were when the bill arrived.) The "appetizer" portion of the tofu teryaki was, for $12.00, woefully tiny.

2.) Very slow service. For a 2-person dinner, how long can 2 plates of teryaki take? Pretty damn long, we learned. The timing of the delivery was off as well, as one of us was served our entree 20 minutes before the other.

In summary, our experience with the pricing and the mediocre quality of the dishes makes this place a very poor value for the money you spend.

I especially disliked the fried eggplant appetizer because it was greasy and served with a dipping sauce that seemed to be made primarily of mayonnaise. I felt that the rest of the dinner that night was bland and unmemorable. However, I clearly remember the rows of partially empty jars of food sitting out, unrefrigerated, on the shelves behind the kitchen, and thinking that they looked unsanitary. The co-ed bathroom was dimly lit, the only toilet tissue roll there, had fallen on the floor and the floor was wet. Our total, for dinner for a party of two, came to approximately $60. Even though, service was extremely slow. I gave the waitress a $10 tip, which was 15 percent. The next morning, I glanced at my credit card receipt and was surprised to find that we were actually charged $73.56, because a minimum gratuity had been included in our bill, thereby increasing the tip to 20 percent. There was no prior notice that a minimum gratuity would be applied for a party of two. I don't want to go there anymore.

This is the best restaurant in SF.

Yoko and Judy make the experience feel like going to eat at your long lost japanese family's house. The food is fantastic, with tons of creative choices and artful presentations.

The restaurant is so small that sometimes there's a long wait and that can be annoying. It is nice to see people complaining about the restaurant because if everyone had a positive experience there, I'd NEVER get a table! In fact, the owner deliberately discourages restaurant reviews in local papers because she doesn't want bigger crowds than she already has. They have a very loyal clientle who loves them as much as I do, so if you're not there for the whole experience and show up with a bad attitude, please go to one of the yuppie restaurants around the corner on Valencia instead.

Pros: Great food, good for vegans and people who want organic, wonderful owners, nice ambience once you're inside

Cons: parking, people who are in a hurry and rushing the waitstaff

minako's is very talented at japanese food. their fish, whether it be in something cooked or raw, is always fresh and delicious. but they also have excellent sukiyaki and other traditional japanese dishes. if you're a vegetarian looking for japanese food, minako's is one of the few japanese restaurants i know of that also caters to vegetarians and even vegans. their veggie eel is not exactly like real eel, but it's very tasty. and they're also environmentally conscious to boot, as everything they serve is organic. as long as you're patient and friendly (don't go there when you're in a rush -- they have just one chef in the back doing ALL the work and she really works hard to make all the food just right), minako's is an excellent choice for dinner.

I went a few month ago because the place got high reviews. The wait was long and the food was not as appetizing. One of my friends is japanese and her dad is a chef. She didn't eat half of her order and I barely touched my age tofu. It's just a piece of tofu fried poured over some soy. I can make that at home instead of paying almost 10 bucks for it. So all we did was drink alcohol and try to eat some of the sushi pieces to stuff our stomach. I am quite embarassed to take my friends there. But the daughter was nicely to make conversations with us as others were waiting for her service

Minako is a wonderful, organic Japanese restaurant in the Mission district with many vegetarian options. The food is delicious & the owners are friendly! And their sukiyaki is to die for.

PROS: delicious, healthful, organic
CONS: highly addictive! ;)

Amazing. A Japanese restuarant where I can eat almost anything and not have to worry about meat or byproduct.

My favorites:

Miso - I never get to have the miso at any other place I go.
Agedashi Tofu - Other places bring out a bowl with a few cubes of tofu. Minako's version is a block of tofu (that's right, a block...), fried as expected and wading in a pool of lovely sauce. It's heavenly.
Sushi rolls - Here I can get the vegan versions of those rolls I drool over when I'm out at other restaurants. And they're delicious.
The owner and her mother - The chef is Mom and you can taste the love in every bite. I was told that she cooks in shifts; all meat, clean the grill, all veggies. This is wonderful. And the owner, who also happens to be part of the wait staff, is equally as lovely.

Recommedations:

If you go, don't be in a rush. My average dining time has been over an hour. It moves along well if you order some appetizers, a few pieces of sushi and an entree. That way you'll have food on the table at all times.

They also close when they run out of food, so you're taking a chance later in the evening, rather then earlier.

After eating at Minako, all I could remember was the extremely long wait for the food to be brought out...nearly a hour after we ordered. The food was quite ordinary and I couldn't tell the difference between eating organic and not. I heard so many good things about this restaurant, but I won't be back.

When we went in, there was a table available at the window but we werent allowed to sit there. Minako did not want us sitting there. Instead we were put at a makeshift table near the kitchen where we were brushed up against when they walked by us. The service was too slow considering how big the restaurant is. They charged us for four pieces of vegetables and uncooked tofu at outrageous priced. The tofu kebab was not edible. The waitress told us the chef ,Minako, said that is how it is made in her restaurant. It was not japanese food. We ordered sushi and for the first ever neither one of us ate all of it. The fish had an oily quality that made me a little naseous. I was embarassed by this this and ended up paying $90 for a subpar dinner of half eaten or uneaten food.

This is absolutely my favorite restaurant in SF, and my favorite sushi joint ever. After a couple of visits, you'll get to know Judy, who makes you feel right at home. She's a sweet girl, but she'll let you know if you're ordering too much food! The food is the best around, I always get sake nigiri and it's always very fresh. Try the Age Tofu, the presentation alone is worth the price. Vegetarians will not be disappointed, this is one of the best vegetarian options in town. Leave your expectations for a pretentious, upscale sushi-bar at home, this is about top-notch food and pure sushi love.

Minako's chef, Yoko makes her own Udon! Not only that, did you know that she grows her own vegetables in her garden and serves some of that in the restaurant? She also has some twenty-year-old vintage pickled plum (umeboshi). Try it in a roll with shiso leaves and cucumber and you will taste something not even a typical person in Japan would not have a chance to eat. Very rare and special place. Vegetarian/Vegan friendly as well. I saw a Japanese family dining there and they said the food was excellent. (There is a man named Allen, who dines there every night!)

I've eaten here many times. The food is very good and different than the standard Japanese fare. They can be quite slow due to limited kitchen staff though, so if they are busy and you are in a hurry, it's not a good choice. But if you have time, they are worth the wait. The widest vegetarian selection for a japanese restaurant in San Francisco. Friendly family run restaurant.

They may try to make foods Authentic Japanese, but I disagree. Im Japanese and I felt most of foods taste too sweet either too strong to me. And everything taste kind of same nothing distinguish other wired thing was they dont put price on the menu. We dont want to ask them all prices, so customers dont know till seeing bills If I say Chinese like American Japanese, then you wont be disappointed.

I went 4 months ago. The portions were small and the prices were a bit high. Not expensively_priced, but NOT a "Cheap Eat". The oddest thing was timing of the service. One meal (hard to share) came out after 25 minutes, and the sushi and appetizers followed about 25 minutes later. (mid-week and only 3 tables full)

Minako is easily missed when walking down Mission, but don't overlook this tiny treasure. With tremendous sized rolls and many vegan selections, I was overwhelmed and stuffed by the end of my meal. I'm not a huge veggie roll fan in general, but the gabo and shitake roll was yummy. Also, look for fat slices of tasty hamachi. The waitstaff was really nice and the chef made fancy presentations. The restaurant isn't too exciting on the inside and we ended up spending about $40 bucks each after tax and tip (but er overordered and we are big eaters). Oh, you can also look forward tp a yummy fruit and gelatin desert at the end of your meal.

Minako's is superfantabulous!!!! The personalized, home-made feel to Minako's dishes is unlike anywhere in San Francisco. You will feel nurtured and comforted by the delicious Japanese creations you never thought possible. I'm not sure if their chopsticks are made of organic wood, but *everything* else at Minako's is organic, right down to the soy sauce and the prices are very reasonable, actually a bargain for what you'll be delighted with. The last few times I've gone, they've added bits of octopus and lotus roots to my inari! That's so cool & yummy! There's a similar level of culinary creativity in a lot of San Francisco restaurants, most of which are way more pricy than Minako's and they don't play the Ramones or Hanoi Rocks either. So what are you waiting for? Get a table before the rest of The City finds out and there's a line around the block!

I hate to say this but Minako is superb. I only hate to say it, because you'll make it crowded and difficult to get in to.

When was the last time you had *real* wasabi? The atmosphere is fairly flat, but Judy and her mom are so kind and sweet and the food is beyond description, which makes it *SO* worthwhile.

Finally, be patient. It's a small place with only one waitress. Be prepared for a long, though fantastic meal.

Minako had some very interesting selections on their menu. My husband ordered the mackeral that was cooked in a unique sauce that was very good (but not necessarily for everybody). All the food we ordered was superb. My only caution is that the service is INCREDIBLY slow. You should not eat here if you are trying to catch a movie or are in a rush. Rather, expect a long, leisurely dinner and enjoy the experience.

... by the funky 'dealer-laden' neighborhood. This is a true find in a rather rough mission street block. The sushi takes and improves on the traditions. A tuna poke special was served in a martini glass with two kinds of tobiko. Beautiful to look at and delicious too. Sushi was served at a leisurely pace. Large portions, interesting presentation and an interesting and attentive waitress make this a nice mid-week spot. A great value too. Don't miss the bathroom which looks like you're in a surreal undersea room!

Minako is the eptiome of a family eatery. Run by Minako, and her mother, Yoko, the cozy little sushi joint on Mission has a very homey and comfortable feel. When I ate there, Minako knew every customer who came through the door by name, indicating that she has a genuine interest in the people she's feeding. And feed them she does.....

The sushi menu features all of the old sushi standbys, plus a plethora of experimental new nigiri sushi. Vegetarians will be VERY pleased with the amount of selection they have here. I'd say that at least half the menu is Vegan, and delicious to boot (I myself am vegetarian, so I was thrilled to find this.....).

Eat at Minako.

Finally a Japanese restaurant in San Fran that does vegan too! There is one in Berkeley already and gratefully they present different tastes. Two things I suggest them changing is the preparation of the teriyaki tofu-dredging it in cornstarch is a great idea, but only when they cook it thoroughly, which didn't happen here. It was served on a sizzling iron platter, and althrough the bottom cooked well, the top and sides left us with powdery strangeness. THe other suggestion is to vary the type of tofu they use. We ordered two different styles of tofu dishes and they were all made with the firm tofu. Other than that, the food was excellent, and who doesn't love dining to Misfits and Duran Duran? The hostess was extremely nice.

I cannot praise this place enough! All the times I've been there, I've been treated to super-fresh sushi arranged in simple but beautiful presentation (one time I got fresh-cut orchids for plate decoration that the waitress urged me to keep), an awesome waitstaff who treats you like a friend instead of a walking wallet, and a soothing atmosphere to relax with friends. This is not fast food and on average, it takes 2-3 hours for a meal there. But when you're there, it seems more like 30 minutes!!
