THE VERY BEST!!! – I live around the corner and had a friend over and we love sushi! This place is awesome! The service, the ambience are above Highly. The other night they had a 40 minute wait so we check out another place close by that is new. NEVER AGAIN. I am making rsv for this Friday so we can make sure to be seated! Don't miss going to KOO!

Incredible! – We have been enjoying weekly great sushi for 20 years! My husband and I dropped in at Koo months ago as a walk by for we try new places all the time looking for quality sushi. We abandoned our old enjoyable sushi haunt that very night. We go every week without fail, driving all the way from the East Bay to sample not only their superb sushi, but their excellent cooked food also. Their desserts are incredible. Spoonful of Happiness is the absolute best taste delight!! I almost hate to spread the word in fear we will never get seats. Great sushi is so hard to find!

Absolutely Incredible – I'm from Japan and have been on the hunt for "the" perfect sushi restaurant in SF. After months and months of searching, and hundreds of establishments tested, I've found it at Koo. Everything was perfection, from the taste & quality of the food, to the service, ambience, and price. Everything was wonderfully authentic - even the staff members were Japanese (and who also spoke highly polished English). I would highly recommend everything on the menu, as everything we ordered was excellent. Especially try the "Spoonful of Happiness" to start off with. Amazing. The quality and taste of the fish was impeccable. Highly rivals restaurants in Japan.

ups and downs – chicken teriyaki - nothing special

una-kyu - very fishy tasting

hamachi kama- yummy with ponzu sauce

miso cod - great

calamari - lots! good value though comes with aioli which adds to unhealthiness

My favorite Sushi restaurant! – I was never big on Sushi until I went to Koo , I love this place ! Absolutely must try's are

the "Best Roll" and "Aji" Very nice service , fast and very polite and welcoming. We usually try to get seats by the bar too see the food being prepared, and the chefs always make us some extra freebie snacks. Last time we got 3 of them ! :) Atmosphere is great for a romantic date , or cozy dinner. I virtually have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant , highly recommended.

Yummy – From the first bite of the Grilled Godzilla Tofu to the last morsel of Mt. Fuji chocolate cake (with white chocolate mouse filling!), our taste buds applauded this Inner Sunset gem. As residents of the Inner Sunset for the last year, we've managed to hit most of the 9th Avenue fare, but Koo had escaped us. Thank CitySearch for lighting our way. As someone who enjoys sushi, but has yet to fall in love with it, I have to say the Azteca (crab, avocado, gobo--which appears to be an orange roe, and cucumber, all wrapped in white fish, then topped with a tiny bit of jalapeno, spicy mayo, tobiko and ponzu---ooh ponzu--then lightly baked) was the finest sushi I've ever consumed.

The service was delightful, the ambience ambient, and overall, it was superb.

Make a reservation. Enjoy.

Excellent food – My fiance and I were visiting from Los Angeles and looking to get away from the tourist-vibe of Union Square. This place was a perfect neighborhood destination outside of the main attractions of the city. It had a great laid back vibe and very attentive service. We ordered several items from the menu and loved everything we got. The food was excellent. Our only complaint is that we ate way too much because it was all so good. The sakes were great, too. The place had a lot of diners but seemed able to accomodate walk-ins. Also, the prices were pretty reasonable in comparison to other sushi spots I've been to. Overall, great experience and we definitely plan to come back.

Terrific sushi – Very freash and creative sushi. Try the azteca roll or any of the negri you won't be disappointed. Parking in the neighborhood can be challanging but well worth the effort, the muni train storps at the corner as an alternative.

Amazing sushi – I just moved the the neighborhood and was so happy to find Koo so close by. It's one of the best sushi joints in town. Inventive, but not too trendy, super fresh. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was just right, it never seems to be too crowded, we have never had to wait for a seat, but we always go early.

Great food and service – The food at this place is phenomenal. We went with eight people and had no problem getting seats. Had almost half of the dishes on the menu. Everything was great. I highly recommend the cajun handroll. The best part is its open until 11.
