  • Sushi Bistro

    Great food

    Great sushi for a good price, it’s between about $10-13 for a unique roll but they are well worth it... for example we paid $13 for a roll that rolled the sushi in cucumber instead of seaweed… It was certainly better value and more importantly better food than most of the sushi restaurants that I have been to. Parking can be tough but its worth it.

    The Only place to get your sushi fix!

    You've got your mom-and-pop places and shi-shi sushi joints, and both have their advantages, but Sushi Bistro is the best of both. The prices are great (it should be $$ not $$$ rated) for the consistently amazing food this place serves up. I wish I was there right now! Mmmmm... The fish is always fresh because Xin personally selects almost every fish he expertly slices, and frequently has seasonal specials. The portions of nigiri, sashimi, and rolls are large, and I guarantee you've never had such tasty and creative house special rolls -- try the Spicy Crunch, Ragin Cajun, Waikiki or Watermelon Man! If told you everything I love the list would be too long, but the baby lobster in a hand roll or salad is a favorite, and any of the seared fish or fried rolls are outstanding. You will be amazed by anything you order, I swear. And did I mention their fine sake selection and Kirin on draft served in chilled pints? I think a pitcher only runs about $12... They also have great Japanese fare: tender teriyakis, light and crispy tempuras, and bountiful udon bowls. The miso soup, seaweed salad, and other appetizers are great, and the miso salad dressing is worth sopping up with rice when you're done. This owner-operated joint is the ONLY place I will eat sushi in San Francisco and I'll tell you why: I had eaten there a few times already at this point when they had just opened about two years ago. One day I was walking past and saw Xin leaving with a box of fish in his arms, and said jokingly, "I thought the fish was supposed to come in as big pieces and leave as little pieces in people's bellies!?" Xin laughed and said, "Yes, but I don't like this one, so I'm sending it back." Then and there I decided this was the only place I would eat raw fish. Since then I've seen a lot of Xin (pronounced 'Sheen') and Debbie, and I miss them and their amazing food so much since I've traveled and moved. It's the last place I eat before leaving The City and the first place I go.
