SAKANA SUSHI BAR & GRILL offers some of the most authentic Japanese cuisine in San
Francisco. Founded in 1996 in downtown San Francisco, SAKANA's warm environment, great tasting food, and friendly service make the customers keep coming back from all over
Tourists often wander right past this Post Street hole-in-the-wall sushi spot -- unless they're
in the know or from Japan. Despite its unassuming ambience, the eatery is listed in Japanese
guidebooks as THE place to get a fresh- fix in the city. On weekend nights, locals line the
sushi bar, each looking as though they we're the first to discover how terrific the sashimi
and tempura is here.
Be sure to ask head sushi chef Michael for his recommendations and don't be afraid to try
new things. On-demand rations of Toro, or fatty tuna, are well worth the market price.
