Best Japanese Restaurant in Japantown (other than Kiss)?
my fiance's sister is visiting for a few days. She spent a few years in Japan so she is pretty well versed in Japanese food. I'm guessing we can't get into Kiss on such short notice, so any other ideas?
I've never been to Kiss, but it has received good reports on Chowhound. Unfortunately, there aren't that many good Japanese restaurants in Japantown. The best is probably Kappa, and if your fiance's sister can speak Japanese, that will be most helpful there. It's above the Denny's at 1700 Post St and is quite expensive, but authentic. I've also heard good things about Ino Sushi. Maki and Kansai are also fairly good. Bushi-tei has had some good notices but I think it might be more of a fusion place. Here are some links:
