Who doesn't like noodles? 1/4/2010

I have been wanting to eat here since I knew about it many years ago.....but in a city with this many dining options, somehow we never got to this place until recently. For me though, the fact that the advertise the noodles is a huge draw for me, carb lover till the end! Pros: Warm noodles and rice, what's not to like? Cons: Seems like always a wait. more

Best Noodle House 8/13/2008

This place has the best noodle soups anywhere. Perfect for a cold day or when you just want something comforting and delicious. There's a wide variety of different soups, noodle dishes, and sushi as well. The ingredients are fresh and delicious, and you can't beat the prices. The sushi rolls are also very good. Love it! Pros: Soups, Sushi more

Pretty good noodles...nice environment... small and cozy 2/10/2008

I came here because of the good reviews also. The price is good for what I pay for. However, seems like the waitress are pretty not that nice... to their own people. They serve the White folks really well... Jessh, I wonder why? However, only one or two waitress was doing that. The environment was dimming and its a really nice place to have noodles. The sushi, however, wasn't as great. I love the choices and their specialties... but it doesn't taste as great as I expected them to. So my over all experience wasn't as delightful. But I will go back again for sure just for the noodles itself, and possibly try more of their sushi selections. Pros: Price, Noodle, Cozy environment Cons: Parking, Service more

Quality to Price can't be beat 8/28/2007

Hotei is my go to place for reasonably priced sushi. The food is not ""cheap"" by any stretch but it is inexpensive compared to what you would get at other places of the same level. The food is absolutely delicious and consistent from visit to visit. Some of my favorite things to order are the 49er Roll which contains fresh salmon with lemon on top. I order this roll every single time, you pretty much have to if you like fresh salmon. Double Hamachi roll is great for hamachi lovers. Another great dish is the Nabeyaki Udon if ya feel like a hearty boll of noodles. I usually split it with a friend as it is too much for me alone. Gayoza is not bad ether. Their great service deserves a mention also. I have never had a problem with any of the waiters and always receive great service over the years of being a regular. Ones I took some friends here for dinner and they wanted fresh wasabi (not the colored horse radish you get at most sushi places) We asked the waiter for some and he was willing to actually go across the street to Ebisu and grab us some. We felt bad and declined his offer but I really liked his dedication to our dining experience. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a casual, yet delicious sushi place. Pros: Reasonable Prices, Great Service, Consistent & Delicious Food Cons: Parking. Gets a bit stuffy on rainy days. more

Great Japanese Soups at Very Decent Prices 10/10/2006

I was surprised that our lovely meal for two - two hearty soups and saki for two - came to $25 with tip. Good pricing, great food, friendly staff, and spare decor. A great neighborhood place. more

Best Japanese Noodle house in SF! 9/8/2006

I found this place when I used to live in the neighborhood almost 7 years ago.. However even after I moved to Potrero, I still make the 15 minute drive over here almost once a week. more

Great Ramon noodles! 7/31/2006

I love this place. Friendly service, great prices, amazing food. Try the delicious seafood ramon with tons a wonderful sea creatures in it and a broth to die for. Great potstickers and vegetable tempura. Goes down great with a Kirin Ichiban! Pros: Amazing food for cheap with friendly service Cons: Parking and wait. (less crowded than Ebisu!) more

Great Casual Japanese 6/12/2006

Me and the wifey's favorite local casual japanese. Though small (approximately 25 seats), is kid friendly (we bring our 3 yr old there and always see at least 1-2 kids in the restaurant). The food is good, though we have not tried the sashimi. Rolls are excellent and wifey loves the Udon. Their curry is savory and phenomenal (my current favorite). Good sized portions and the pricing is terrific as well. Definitely a place worth trying out - it has become a regular place for me and my family. Pros: Good Food and Cheap! Family Friendly - quick kitch Cons: Very Small. more

udon 5/6/2006

This place has good udon and sushi. I always come here if I am in the mood for a good bowl of udon. Their sushi is a lot better than many places in the city also. Try this place out. You'll like it. Pros: service, food, price more

Authentic, Super-quick, Hot, Cheap, Delicious 8/3/2005

I recently started a job only 2 blocks from Hotei. On lunch I can place an order and in less than five minutes walking over there they have my order ready! Everything I have had has been prepared just as it should. The food is authentic japanese, delicious, and perfect every time! I recommend the Uakyu sushi, the Oden dinner and the udon w/vegetable tempura. i'm hooked! more
