On my birthday, my husband took me here for the prix fix omakase dinner. It was unforgettable! The entire meal was an experience. We tried some things that were more familiar, and had other dishes unique to their restaurant. The ingredients are incredible fresh and very thoughtful. We have returned several since then, and ordered from the regular menu. It's... More

I like sitting on the 1rst floor, upstairs I feel isolated. Uni in the shell. Many special fresh items on the board. Sake selection. Sea bass appetizer is great. Gets busy.

I had the Ruby Roll and Hot Soba. The roll was fantastic--would order again in a heartbeat. The soba was in a miso broth and was perfect for a cool evening. Service was quick and friendly. The menu was a little overwhelming, but only because they have so many creative options. If I lived here, I would definitely come again!

This restaurant is fantastic, fish is fresh and chefs are very creative. We have never been disappointed. We love the infusion roll with jalepino and the Zach rolls. Fresh sashimi can't be beat. It's a really small restaurant, make reservations or go early.

We've been here quite a few times since moving from Alameda to Castro Valley. At first, we missed the sushi in Alameda, but once we found i Sushi, there was no going back. They have traditional sushi as well as several pages of specialty rolls. My wife loves the large selection of vegetable rolls. Its on the pricey side, especially... More

I tried this place for dinner tonight. My son had the salmon with california rolls and I had the teriyaki tofu. My son didn't care for the california rolls. There wasn't a lot of crab in the roll and it was clear it was imitation crab. Our dinners were OK. Granted we didn't give the sushi a real try.

Is this place pricy? Yes...is it worth it? YES! Come here knowing that they will serve you unique dishes, extraordinary sushi and incredibly fresh seafood and even kobe beef! The raw scallops are absolutely amazing! They melt in your mouth like butter, and they're what I love the most so far.
