SF Weekly's Description

Cuter, more intimate, and generally more food-focused than the majority of the Castro's sushi restaurants (many of which prize stereo volume and a convivial atmosphere over fish quality), Eiji pulls in a type of sushi-hound uninterested in teriyaki-soaked poultry. Apart from the sushi and sashimi selections, the oboru tofu is excellent, along with most Japanese dishes on the specials board.

    If you have ever wondered while flying in an airplane what it would be like to take a bite out of a cloud, then you have to try Eiji's home-made tofu. It is unlike anything you have ever tasted, super-light texture and delicious seasonings to add to your particular taste. The sushi is great too, some of the best uni I have had, truly a hidden treasure in the Castro.

    Fantastic tofu, but also some great sushi. Go for the daily recommendations in the blackboard. We had top notch Ankimo, Sanma, Hirame, and a great eggplant dish. All Japanese staff btw.

    Everything is delicious but the strawberry mochi is exceptional!

  • Premshree P. on 06/25/10

    Get the strawberry mochi. Oh, yum!

  • Traci H. on 02/20/10

    Order the oboro tofu! And definitely try the strawberry mochi--never thought of strawberry, azuki, and mochi in combination before.

    Excellent nigiri! The quality is always top notch. The lunch special is a great value.
