Spectacular. A new name for this small space, this is a step up from most sushi restaurants. Truly fresh and unusual fish. I only ate sushi but I wish I got around here more often. Go no where else but do call for a reservation, it only has a dozen tables or so. 650-873-1084

Very fresh and excellent variety of fish excellently prepared by the sushi masters. Knowledgeable staff and lots of Japanese customers = great sushi dinner, perfect for long flight.

The name may have changed to Amami San but the address is definitively good. Second time I am dining here before an early flight from SFO and the jury is out again ! Outstanding sushi, especially variety of toro and sashimi selection. Rolls are amazing, in a nutshell the " sunshine" bomb. Btw plenty of Japanese customers ...good sign !

Stopped here based on TripAdvisor reviews and proximity to my hotel. The restaurant was packed upon arrival. I ended up ordering a Rainbow roll and the Spicy Tuna roll to go. Both were very good and well worth the long wait. I would definitely return on a future visit to the SFO area.

It's great to enter a restaurant and see the owner take pride in knowing his customers. With each customer walking in, the Chef welcomes them by their first name; over a few dozen people in and out and it appears to be Yoko's loyalist and for good reason. Kudos on the memory and cleanliness. Food presentation is amazing. Chef as... More

The staff was very pleasant; the food was so-so; the place was nice and quiet and open late. Perfect for what we were looking for.

The service is prompt and extremely friendly. The food is extremely fresh and tasty. The music is a little sappy, but all in all a wonderful find.
