NEW: Tenroku Sushi with conveyor belts in SF Japantown - any reports?
I have been there 3 times since it opened and frankly was a little surprised. Despite the sterile, surreal ambiance, the fish was pretty good on all occasions--nothing to rave about, but perfectly decent and fresh. If it happens to be slow and there isn't a lot on the belt, one can always order from the menu. There are several non-sushi items that are okay as well. Service is a little too attentive though (almost as if the four waitresses were on invisible conveyor belts of their own). Perfect place for a quick snack and without the questionable hygiene and low quality fish found at the "boat" place in the same mall (how often DO they change that water?).
Tried out the pretty new Tenroku in SF J-Town. It's a conveyor belt sushi bar kinda place with chairs all around the bar & 1 table inside, some tables outside.
Got seated right away & just picked the dishes we wanted & we are eating!
There's face towels before you start. Hot tea given. Wasabi & ginger given to you almost as soon as you are seated.
Dishes we got. No names given, so what I think they are:
Some fancy looking roll
White tuna looking thing
Chopped up tuna looking thing
hamachi w/ monkfish liver
fatty tuna looking nigiri
another of the fancy looking roll
lids put aside and wait person will pick up.
Prices are by plates which you stack up:
Other plates can be anywhere from $3-$12.
Our total before tip $48.40 for 2 ppl. Charge it. I liked it, might go back one day.
