Located in Half Moon Bay's historical Debenedetti Building, Sushi Main Street's unique decor welcomes you even before stepping through the front doors.
The unique interior decor is a blending of imported Balinese woodwork and other Asian accents.
Sushi Main Street is a San Francisco Bay area Japanese restaurant featuring nigiri, sashimi, sushi rolls, sukiyaki, teriyaki, tempura, udon, and many other Japanese delights.
Fabulous decor – The decor is worth stopping in and having a snack and some saki.
Haven't eaten here for awhile - but really loved the interior design. Hopefully the food has improved - if so, I will return!
If this isn't what you're looking for, take the drive to Pescadero to the one and only restaurant that serves amazing seafood, homemade soups and pies... only a half hr away from Half Moon Bay! Very casual atmosphere.
Wonderful Rolls! – My husband and I ate here last weekend - we were out the door with two sapporos for about $50 - most of the rolls are 4.25 which is SO CHEAP! but they were also excellent. We had the pork potstickers which were good and the wasabi gyoza maybe? which were ok....sort of crispy and round. But we really loved the roll with macadamia nuts on it - original and very tasty. Overall I would highly recommend for a fun, great sushi dinner. Our server forgot a couple of items but was very sweet about it - great place for groups or casual...
try the uni! – i am a sushi lover, and thbis place did not dissapoint. Not cheap, but sushi never is. i suggest the tuna shashimi and the house salad. and saki of course!
Don't Waste Your Time or Money! – The sushi is just "ok" and the service is HORRIBLE! I received the same snotty attitude from the owner that I have seen other people post about (I know she is the owner because her picture is on their website). Having worked in Customer Service, I am shocked that they have managed to stay in business this long with such bad attitudes! I would never recommend this restaurant and am sorry that we wasted money that contributed to their bottom line! You can get much better sushi and service somewhere else!
Imperialism - Sushi Style – It's hard to believe the postings that rate this restaurant so highly - probably employees or owners postings. There is no such thing as an off night here. The staff and owners will soon suffer a loss of business as a result of their rude behavior. The fish isn't always that fresh (we get fresher fish in Florida including Ahi and Ono from Hawaii), the rice is hard (been there 2 times just to make sure it wasn't an "off night").
If I were to compare it to another restaurant it reminds me of the Sushi found in the basement of a train station (take your choice). In my honest opinion I think you can get better food, at much more reasonable prices, and much better service at Bennihanna's in Burlingame. They'll never see me here again.
Editorial Review – Japanese specialties, including fresh nigiri, sashimi, sukiyaki, teriyaki, tempura and sushi rolls, served in a rustic, Asian and Balinese-themed den.
DO NOT EAT HERE! – Do not eat here unless you want some rude service. I went for my second time to this restaurant because we heard the sushi was sooooo great. It was pretty good so we went back. When we arrived this time we had to wait 10 minutes before we could even ask for a table. We finally asked for a table for 4 and the hostess rolled her eyes and said "it could be a half hour...40 minutes..you'll probably have to sit at the bar.." Just rude...and made us all want to leave...so now we will never go back.. It's not that good so don't go there.
Rude, rude, unprofessional! – I have never been treated so poorly! We arrived at the restaurant at 8pm and the owner told us it would be a "few minutes". We told her we wanted a table. There were only 3 two top tables. After 45 minutes passed, a 4 top became available. Three people came in with no reservation. It was obvious that they knew the owner, after some chit-chat she said "this table just became available" and sat them at the 4 top. I said "excuse me, we've been waiting for 45 minutes" her response, "I can't place 2 people at a 4 top!" I said "then we'll take our business elsewhere" and she had the nerve to respond "fine then, I guess you will" in a snotty tone in front of other patrons waiting to be seated.
tasty sushi, lovely atmosphere – Unfortunately, the previous viewer must have been to Sushi Main Street on an off night - which I have never experienced! The fish has always been fresh, intriguing combinations making you ask for more even when you are full, and the beautiful interior and fun popular atmosphere of this restaurant has always made me look forward to my next visit the minute I walk out the door! Prepare for a wait if you come late - it gets PACKED!
Minor Disappointment – So much hype about this place, I decided to visit it. The ambience was unique and creative, but the sushi was average at best. The rice was cold and hard, and the sashimi was not all that fresh nor was it well cut. It is not the bad sushi from a cheap restaurant, but it certainly doesn't measure up to the best.
