Visiting SF and looking for a great sushi restaurant

  • 7

I am staying in Nob Hill (at the Renaissance Stanford hotel) and am interested in great sushi (or any other restaurant) near the hotel. I am also interested in hearing about great sushi restaurants that are not necessarily in the neighborhood. I don't necessarily want high-end but more local, everyday favorites that have really good sushi.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I live in Nob Hill but go to Zushi Puzzle at 1910 Lombard (cross Buchanon). It is the best in town. Chef Roger will take care of you.

    1. Using Chowhound's vastly improved search feature, you will find extensive discussions of: Ebisu, Koo, Fuku, Ino, Zushi Puzzle, Takara and Murasaki. Unfortunately, these haven't been consolidated onto a single thread. Each has its partisans.

        1. Kiss seafood has fans.

          1. Tokyo a Go Go is pretty high end but its worth the money. They have some pretty amazing innovative stuff. It's on 16th street in the Mission between Guerrero and Valencia. Also, have had good experiences at Sushi on North Beach on Columbus St.

            1. My local neighborhood gem is Tanuki on California Street in the Avenues... Every time I want fresh, dependable, and reasonably priced sushi, I go there.
              I've been to Koo on Irving St and Sushi Ran in Sausalito. I thought Koo was pretty decent but a little more pricey than what I would like to pay for and I didn't find Sushi Ran that great based on the prices you pay.
