Looking for Japanese near Chinatown

Tomorrow is my sister's birthday, and I want to take her to a yummy Japanese restaurant. I'm from Seattle, so I'm not familiar with anything around here. My sister does have a car, so we could go somewhere further from Chinatown, if needed. I just want to get her some yummy sushi while I'm in town... esp. as it's her b-day. She also likes other Japanese dishes, so maybe something that's not just a sushi bar? Oh! I think she would love to do a habachi grill - anybody know of a good one? There will be 4 of us.

  1. Japantown is only 10 - 15 min. by car from Chinatown and there is a parking lot. Go there instead.

        22 Peace Plaza.
        San Francisco, CA 94115

        A good place is Ino Sushi, small place on the second floor of Miyako mall. Reservation is a must if you go. Not sure if they take same day reservation.

        There is also a Japanese BBQ restaurant. Could be kind of expensive. $45 per person I believe.

        There are few other places like Mifune all inside of Japantown.
