Each time I dine here I am amazed at the very high caliber of the creative fusion of tasty ingredients. The menu always changes but I opt for the fish dishes which are most delicious I've ever had anywhere--very fresh tasting, moist inside

The place is really nice, comfortable, clean. The people were friendly and service was really good. Never had to ask twice for anything and they always made sure we didn't need anything. The seafood was great. I loved the appetizers. Prices are reasonable. Parking is not so great though. I would still go again.

Pros: Everything we had was perfect & we're picky!

Cons: none-maybe the size for some parties would be tight

I went to this restaurant on a recent trip to SF and I STILL crace the black cod topped with crab sushi rolls. The scallops that I had as an appetizer are also the best I have had.

Rarely do I go to a restaurant where each visit tops the last, but this is the case with this one. I love trying new dishes here and make it a point to only go with people who share! Unfortunately I agree that the service is not quite of

asian fusion food, the food is a tad bit on the greasy side and the menu selection is a bit limited (1 page back&front), but overall the food tastes pretty good. pricing is about right for the food quality that they serve, convenient location, food is unique, cant be found at another place.

the place is usually pretty busy, hard to get seats during the dinner time unless you make reservations, most of the time have good customer service, one or two of the waitresses tend to be a little less friendly and hardly smile, otherwise all the other waiters are nice and courteous and tries to meet all the requests of the customers.

PROS: goes out of the way to meet the requests of the customer
CONS: usually really crowded, a tad bit on the greasy side, limited menu

This place is one of my favorite places to eat in San Francisco! All their food is delicious, and their service is excellent! They used to have another location that was a bit larger and easier to find parking for, but now it's just this one, i think. I absolutely love their seafood dishes, and their appetizers. Everything is presented so well, and tastes as good as it looks! Also order a bottle of their white grape juice -- it is awesome!

PROS: the food, the service, the presentation
CONS: the parking..ugh
