To start with, the atmosphere is of a not so clean kitchen. Dirty mirror on the counter, stained, dirty and crumpled menu. Old mushy fish in sashimi and sushi rolls, and a waitress that is letting you know you are intruding. All this at a...More

One of my favorite sushi places of all time. Must try the ceviche and the blue fin. Clam miso is also outstanding. I tend to keep it pretty simple here and order about 5 orders of their ceviche- simple and absolutely delicious. I actually dream...More

Enjoyed dinner with a friend who took me to this place when I suggested to have sushi dinner. As advertised, this is a gem of a place. Unassuming, fairly small, but the sushi and sashimi are extremely fresh and flavorful. Everything was excellent. From sashimi...More

The dimunitive Kabuto storefront, sandwiched between apartment buildings, provides entry to a fine sushi restaurant. The simple interior allows clear views of the Chef as he works. The sushi is more nuanced, delicious and well presented, especially in combinations. I look forward to returning.

This is the best sushi I has in San Francisco. It's. Not cheap but the quality is amazing. If you're into it, try the abalone spoons. They're super yummy and quite an experience for your taste buds.
