Best Value – The quality of food was pretty good, but its the value that is most attractive. They're portions are huge and well worth it.

Hotaru is the father of sam – Just as small and crowded as sushi sams down the street but this place is FAR better. Best sushi in town or in the bay area for that matter. Slow service but all of it is worth the wait since its good food. Why wait for bad service and bad food when you go here for GOOD food and slow service? I think its due to the understaffing and packed tables tho...but as wait but they smile.

Good "value" i guess because you pay the same price for GOOD food..but lets face it...sushi is not cheap...and if it're a fisherman or not really eating sushi.
