We stumbled onto Sakana after looking at a list of 70 restaurant provided by our hotel, and we liked it so much we went back the next for dinner again. The place was not big, cozy without feeling cramp. The staff was friendly, laid-back and helpful. We had sashimi and sushi combo and everything was fresh and delicious. The next... More

Small Sushi restaurant in a good location near Union Square. Food did not disappoint and it was affordable enough.

In a neighbourhood full of sushi spots, this was a pleasant surprise. Very good rolls, some of the fish is flown directly from Japan and it's a good deal.

We came here on a recommendation from my brother, who lived in San Francisco for about 5 years. It's nothing fancy, but the perfect place to go for some quality sushi and people who know what they're doing. Our waiter made some great recommendations for sake, and they accommodated my request to leave out the wasabi from my nigiri pieces.... More

Best deal in Union Square amazingly fresh fish at really amazing prices. Sakana has great fish choices, both local and flown in from Japan daily. Helpful and knowledgeable staff that seem to love their job. What more could you want

We discovered this restaurant across our hostel and keep going there for dinners. It has wide selection of sushi, very tasty teryaki (especially beef), free Japanese green tea (unlimited refills!), green tea ice cream, very friendly staff and prompt service. All at affordable price.

We found this restaurant the last time we came to town after doing the trolley tour to union square. I was actually looking for another sushi place that is now gone, when we noticed a lot of locals eating here. We went in and ordered all the featured rolls. We really enjoyed everyone of them. This time I brought a... More
