SF Weekly's Description

This friendly Japantown venue showcases Japanese cuisine above and beyond the standard sushi and tempura. Among the stars: rich, succulent salt-broiled mackerel; an iron pot of creamy rice and sweet crab meat; vegetables and seafood simmered tableside in broth; and a bento box of vinegared rice laden with supple, luscious sashimi. Most dishes come with appetizer, pickles, green tea ice cream, an invigorating bowl of miso soup, and an ethereal, savory custard. A bowl of ochazuke -- rice cooked in tea with plums, seaweed, or seafood on top -- makes a comforting snack.

Tips from foursquare

  • Rock Saké on 10/17/11

    Sit back, grab the lunch combo with a half bottle of Rock Saké and enjoy the time spent in this charming Japanese restaurant.

  • Prisczy D. on 08/27/10

    Best service in a japanese restaurant

  • Ken B. on 10/10/12

    Won't validate parking unless your check is over $30 (even if it's close).

  • Sherilynn M. on 05/22/11

    This place is okay, but very authentic so it's hard to make a custom order. Come knowing what you want, or speak Japanese!

  • Steve J. on 04/30/10

    One of the few places with Japanese beers on draft! Also, they have great small plates and udon noodles. It's their specialty here...
