18 "Japanese" Restaurants in San Francisco.
Yuzuki is one of the best restaurants in SF, operating somewhat under-the-radar. Get a reservation while you can.
Japanese fusion that doesn’t suck at Nomica in the Castro. And some traditional stuff too.
Serious quality sushi, provided you're willing to pay. Akiko's Restaurant will even serve you up a baby barracuda.
Nojo is a great example of our favorite type of restaurant: excellent food and easy to get into. Chicken on a stick for all.
A safe house from spicy sauce in the Castro, Eiji is one of the best low-key sushi spots around.
Onsen is a Japanese restaurant attached to a communal bathhouse in the Tenderloin. And it’s definitely better than it sounds.
Serious sushi types rave about ICHI in Bernal Heights. We like the sushi, but the cooked food is really where it’s at.
Domo is a neighborhood sushi spot worth a visit, even if you don't live in Hayes Valley.
The bowls and salads at Glaze Teriyaki Gill in the Fillmore won't let you down.
Ace Wasabi's is a fun izakaya in the Marina with sushi, hot things, and plenty of sake bombs.
A fairly corporate Financial District Japanese spot that's perfectly suited to dinner with your boss.
