This restaurant is substandard. The sushi is mediocre. The menu is uninspired. The miso soup itself has no flavor. The service makes me cringe -- the staff seem judgmental and I always feel they want me out. My recommendation: there are great sushi restaurants in San Francisco, so unless you want geographical convenience, go elsewhere.

I first went to Grandeho's when it first opened in the Valley. I was not impressed. So my return was filled with trepidation. I am happy to report that it is much improved. The sushi was well made and tasted extremely fresh, the sashimi perfectly cut and all side dishes were very good. Will return!

We stopped in for lunch as Zazie (next door) was fully seated. We had tempura vegetables, bento boxes, and udon bowls. Chicken teriyaki was dry and tough-could have been frozen. Teriyaki was cloyingly sweet and thick. Beef teriyaki was tough and heavily over-salted. The fruit served in the bento box and the rice were good. Nothing else food-wise recommends this... More

We love this little area just east of Golden Gate Park and near the Haight-Ashbury. It is a good place to stop after a day at the park or to order take out if in the area. The staff were very friendly and the place is so small it is hard not to have good service. You can sit at... More

Took the grandkids there for lunch... Very fresh food, nice size portions, and good variety. Not crowded at lunch, and folks are attentive. Expensive, but worth it..

Nothing out of the ordinary here, but very fresh, tasty, well prepared Sushi dishes. Very simple environment - not fancy. Good sushi bar, and small tables. A well done neighborhood Sushi Restaurant.

As a French family living in the neighborhood we like to have family dinner. The children live Japanese food. Kamekyo at Cole is a big deception. The decoration of the restaurant is very basic. The food is very so-so served in American too big portions, and the price is also too big for what you had. Long story short: to... More

My wife and I love this place for so many reasons! This is the first and only place I have ever tried sushi (I hate fish) because the quality is exceptional.

Tired Japanese standards prepared unimaginatively-- there must be 1,000 better Japanese restaurants in SF. Sushi seemed fresh and a wide variety offered but, again, this is all circa 1980.
