Papa Don't Preach: Monday Night Sushi Recs needed

Fellow Chowhounds, I'm in trouble deep. My friends visiting from the ancestral homeland (a landlocked state) have requested sushi tonight. I don't want to awaken the SF v. Vancouver v. L.A. v. NYC sushi fight, I just want a recommendation for a good sushi place IN SF proper (otherwise we would just go to Kirala - my stomping ground!) that is open tonight.

I have tried Yelping around to find places open Mondays - Umi, Tataki, Sushi Zone/Time/Puzzle, & Okose appear to be highly rated. Any thoughts on these? All the chow threads I saw for seem to be 3-4 years out of date, but please do direct me to any relevant recent ones I missed.

Thanks!!!

  1. Tataki is GREAT. I highly recommend them, you can count on their fish being super fresh, even on a Monday!

    They also have a great little happy hour from 5-7pm with some super roll and drink specials.

      Thanks Denago! I have been thinking of choosing between Tataki and Umi (Tataki is closer to their hotel, too). Anyone else want to weigh in? I really appreciate it.

        I prefer Tataki to Umi but it's usually easier to get a seat at Umi. Tataki is just great because of the sustainability slant and the fish is always interesting. umi is a nice space but I've had hit or miss experiences there.

    2. Ozumo in Oakland is not as good as Kirala's but close, However on Monday nights it's all you can eat sushi for $30 which is an amazing deal

      1. I have always found the difference between Friday sushi and Monday sushi so extreme that I would recommend setting expectations for them - then be surprised when it's good.
