Jimisan is the king of sushi!!! – You have to eat there to actually believe how good the food is.Words do not do this jewel justice. Fresh seafood, fresh veggies, fresh (made in house by Jimi)sauces with cold japanese beer and/or warm/cold saki. Add to that expert preparation by Jimi and Todd with thier own creative flair and you have the makings of one of the best dining nights of your life.
You want something you can't get anywhere else. Ask Jimi and your wish will come true or better.
Nowhere have I ever had such a sushi dining experience. Every dish was an adventure.
I live in Southern California and I have already planned to go back to Jimisan's next year. To me, Jimisan's comes before the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island as a must see.
Make a reservation because it is no longer an unknown. When it gets busy, order some quick items to hold you off because your order will take a little longer to get to you but make no mistake this is not a knock because it is worth the wait. You cannot rush perfection.

One of the Most Amazing Fish and Sake Selections in the City (at very reasonable prices)!! – Jimisan used to work at Sushi-ran (not Ebisu), which is the only Japanese restuarant that got a Michelin rating in the Bay Area, before opening his own place in the Sunset. He serves only the freshest fish and serves some pretty unique things that may have been flown in all the way from Japan!! His Fresh Ikura is to die for! He also has a great sake selection!! Unfortunately, it is not a very trendy scene, so it doesn't get super crowded, but Jimisan will not compromise the qualify of his fish despite that!! The upside is that it's super easy to get a table!!
the best -- why is it always so empty? – This is my go-to place for sushi in the Inner Sunset. It's been open for a couple years and the proprietor, Jimi, used to work at Ebisu. The items are really creative (ask for the live scallop), the fish is fresh and the portions are generous. It's a mystery to me as to why it's never super busy when I go. If you're looking to see and be seen, this isn't the place to go, but if you're just looking for a laid-back place to eat some good fish check out Jimisan.
