Sunday Sushi Lunch near Ghirardelli Square

fuzzyone Aug 7, 2008 12:41 PM

I am looking for a Sushi restaurant open for lunch on Sunday in the general vicinity of Ghiradelli Square in order to satisfy my daughter's birthday wish for Sushi lunch followed by Ghiradelli's ice cream (hey its her birthday). I realize walking distance is a tough one so anything reasonably close would be great. Thanks.

    If indeed the Ferry Plaza Seafood restaurant serves sushi than it is only a street car ride away. What could be a better birthday treat than catching the old Blackpool tram on a Sunday afternoon for a ride to Fisherman's Wharf for a Ghirardelli sundae. Probably only a fantasy.

      Unfortunately North Beach Sushi doesn't open until 4:30, Sushi Groove not until 5;30.

      Anybody ever try Sushi Hunter?

      Ferry Plaza Seafood doesn't have sushi. Delica rf-1 does, though it's a cafeteria rather than a sushi bar.

        Tried Sushi Hunter tonight and I was impressed. The restaurant inside is clean and furnished nicely, a pleasant surprise after looking at the exterior. Service was friendly quick, although there were only 10 customers there at the time.

        The AYCE menu is pretty large, a nice mix of nigiri, sushi, and etc items, with a few untraditional items (lettuce and fried chicken roll in particular). The nigiri and rolls were better than I expected, on par with generic stuff like Sushi Rock. Tempura was a little flavorless, the curry tonkatsu was overcooked more on par with a buffet.

        Overall a very good AYCE sushi experience.

          Tagging this on to a last year post may get it lost. Starting a new topic on AYCE and a Sushi Hunter review, which seems to be missing on this board, would probably get more attention.
