Some of the freshest (and most affordable!) sushi in the bay area sit at sushi counter to be treated like seafood royalty
Excellent Japanese food! – Always loved sushi. This is definitely a place to visit!
Really Good Sushi – The Sushi was great. This place also has really good sake. The service was pretty slow, but if you're out with friends its a really good environment and a good time.
The best sushi! – Although the ambiance isn't as flashy as other sushi restaurants in the city, the sushi itself is the best! Very creative rolls and always, always fresh.
OVERRATED – Even with a reservation, I've had to wait up to one hour. They try and build up the biggest bill they can by giving you more than you order and then charging you. No Sake list so you don really know what you are getting and what you are paying? Roger (owner/sushi chef) a bit full of himself. Loved it at first and now I'm boycotting..
Can't imagine life without Zushi – I can't even count the number of times I've replied, "Anything but sushi" when asked what I felt like for dinner. Well, on the last occasion I said that, my answer went ignored and I was taken to Zushi Puzzle. When I sat down and Chef Roger asked what I liked, I told him what I didn't like: raw fish and seaweed. He sure had his work cut out for him! What I soon found out was that I actually did like sushi... love sushi. What I didn't like was bad sushi as I had tried much of it over the years because I did always want to like it. I've had a couple dozen visits since then and he never ceases to amaze me with his inventive rolls, always the freshest fish, keen knowledge of sake and fervent desire to please his patrons with the best sushi on the west coast. I've continued to try other sushi places in the city and beyond and none can compare. I've seen reviews on here claiming the sushi at Zushi is "alright." I can only feel sorry for these people as I know their palate must be broken. The live scallops, signature hand roll, butterfish, tunas - all divine. And if you can, you should try the tempura banana. Now when asked what I feel like for dinner, you can't get me to say anything but "Zushi".
Authentic you may find in the city! – They use fresh ingredients, varieties of rolls you may choose. Sashimi is so fresh! Try it! I definitely come back
Contender for the Best Sushi in SF – Absolutely my top stop for good, fresh, inexpensive sushi in the city. It's my default choice for where to eat out. Kind of a pain to get to down in the tourist motels of the marina though. Kind of a "hole-in-the-wall" that really delivers. I've eaten my fair share of sushi around the city and this place is one if the few I would recommend to friends.
Best sushi anywhere – This is a great sushi restaurant! The different types of sushi they have are fantastic. I have tried more kinds of fish here than any other sushi restaurant in San Francisco. This is the sushi I compare all other sushi to.
