A top sushi spot in the Bay Area. Fresh, high-quality raw fish along with solid hot dishes like black cod. If wait is long, eat at the bar.

Great sushi, good atmosphere and service – We were in Sausalito for two days and found Sushi Ran on Google Maps. As out-of-towners, we really appreciate finding good, healthy food when we/re traveling.

We found the food here to be really good. I think this was the best sushi we've had in a very long time. Had the Crunch Roll, Seared Tuna, Unagi and steamed veggies. Great textures and flavor combinations. And they didn't go overboard with the rice in items like the two piece Unagi. It was about the fish, not how much rice they could stuff it with.

We ate there two nights in a row if that tells you anything.

The service was good. As big water drinkers, we loved that our glasses were NEVER empty.

Fresh Fish – Besides the crowd in the restaurant the service and food was great. Also the atmosphere of the restaurant is soothing

Mystery hype – I've been going to Shushi Ran for years... and years... it's the default location of the place, I guess. It's ubiquitousness on "best of" lists is one of the strangest things I can think of in the restaurnat scene. The "restaurant"area is very small and hard to get into, but the two times I've dined at the bar the food was unremarkeable. The overflow "bar" area is where I have sat trying out things like the highly-rated black cod and caramelized shrimp (the former very greasy and both so salty I could almost not eat them), the grilled squid (always a bit overcharred and much better witht the sauce that comes witht the nori-wrapped ahi), etc. The wine list has gotten noticibly less interesting in the past year or two, though the service has gotten much better.

Delicious and high quality – I heard that this was a great restaurant; then I heard that it had gone downhill; so I went to try it out for myself. The fish was excellent, high quality, fresh. We sat at the sushi bar and the chef told us to 'trust him' when we ordered the omakase. I'm glad we did! I will definitely be going back.

Bad Service – Visiting San fran for a few days and went to Sausalito for the day, this seemed to be the only sushi there. The chefs were not very enthusiastic and the service was average at best. The sushi was good but very expensive.The worst part for me was I sat at the bar and was quite disgusted by the dirty food encrusted brown gap between the horizontal and vertical pieces of the sushi bar, definately could use a cleaning!!!!!

Great sushi and Japanese restaurant in cozy Sausalito!! – The first time I went to Sushi Ran, I wasn't overly impressed. However, my recent dining experiences changed that! We escaped SF and went to Sausalito for the weekend. We had reservations at Sushi Ran on Friday night then ended up eating there twice b/c it was SO good. I recommend ordering more than just the sushi. The basic sushi is good, but somewhat overpriced. The salmon (sake) sashimi was delcious. Spicy tuna roll w/ avocado was perfect. Our favorite dishes were two chef specials - miso glazed cod (to die for) and Vietnamese shaking beef w/ dipping sauce (awesome). We also enjoyed the sake and wine list.

Most boring sushi place ever. – I didn't realize until this experience just what I've come to expect at a sushi counter. I realize a lot of it now because the chefs at Sushi Ran don't really do any of it. After ordering a couple of nigiri, we ended up ordering "omakase", which they take to mean one exact set menu of 7 pieces of sushi or 5 kindes (2 pieces each) of sashimi. Every single "omakase" order was served, nonchalantly, on a single tray, all at once, with exactly the same presentation. But what's the point of sitting at the bar if you can't eat the sushi one piece at a time, right as it's prepared? Sushi chefs that I enjoy tend to prepare a dish or a roll, hand it to me, and listen for any feedback before deciding which piece to prepare next. These guys were completely out of tune with that idea.

Also, nobody speaks japanese anywhere. Not the clientele, and certainly none of the chefs. Perhaps I have unjustifiable exectations for any place in Sausalito.

The sushi was not great at all, but what came in the set menu was definitely worse than the pieces we ordered ourselves. A lot of the fish was actually pretty good. Garnishes were immediately forgettable if detectable. The Natto roll I ordered had about the blandest natto I've ever tasted.

Delectable Japanese cuisine in Sausalito draws destination diners and laid-back locals. – The Scene
Colorful modern paintings and framed photos of regulars decorate this casual, calming spot. Couples and families sit at wood tables, enjoying quiet conversation, while folks at the bar chat up sushi chefs about the fresh fish displayed in front of them. The waitstaff, which provides team service, helps inexperienced diners--often beginning with, "How adventurous are you?"

The Food
Classic and signature spins on Japanese seafood line a several-page menu. For starters, the sunomono salad sparkles with juicy crab shredded on a mountain of thin cucumber slices bathing in rice vinegar. Chunky Japanese cucumbers give a crispy crunch to the marinated-salmon roll--each over-sized bite filled with creamy avocado and crowned by a lime sliver. Grapefruit adds a citrus kiss to smoked hamachi tataki: a tongue- and eye-pleasing specialty dressed with decadent yuzu truffle sauce and paired with a delicate, diced avocado mold.
