All reviews seem positive

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/20/2012

A good spot, and some excellent cuts of fish - definitely a place to seek out good sashimi. Their rolls were the standard fare - not bad, but not terribly creative. Overall, a good sushi joint that doesn't stand out too much from the crowd. more

fresh cow hollow/marina sushi (gr8 4 lunch) 10/8/2007

Its been open for a year...but I just started eating there. I love sushi and was thrilled when Hime opened on Lombard...but they arent open for lunch or on Mondays. This is my new regular when Hime isnt open (and if I want to save a few $s in return for less atmosphere) Pros: good. fresh. not too costly Cons: nice but less atmosphere than some others more

Amazing service and tasty sushi at a very affordable price 5/29/2007

My girlfriends and I were planning on eating at different restaurant in the neighborhood, but they had a two hour wait for seating. So we decided to walk back up the street where we had noticed a sushi restaurant. It was about 8pm on the Sunday before Memorial Day, and we were able to be seated immediatly. The dining room was small, but very cute with enough room between tables so you didn't feel like you were on top of your neighbors. The menu was very extensive and offered lots of different cooked and raw selections. Our order came out of the kitchen very quickly and looked wonderful. The sushi was very fresh and the pieces were all very good sized. After our meal, we asked the server to take our picture (we were in town on vacation) and sadly the batteries in our camera died. The sushi chef immediatly asked what size and ran in back to find some for us! Our experience up until then was very good, but that really put it over the top! We all eat sushi on a very regular basis and this is some of the best ever. Not only that, it won't require you to take out a loan or sell a kidney to be able to pay the bill! Pros: No reservation required, great service, great value Cons: The lighting isn't the best more

Good Sashimi for Great Price 11/19/2006

We were at the Bayside Grill for a game and wanted sashimi afterwards. Luckily, SkipJack was right next door. We'd never heard of it before, but decided to give it a go. My boyfriend and I are a bit picky when it comes to sashimi...after all, it's raw fish, you don't want to f*%# around with that! (Our personal favorite is Sushi Ran in Sausalito, but for the city, this place is great!) We sat at the bar to watch the chef at work. Pros: ambience, price, sake list Cons: closes pretty early more

a sushi gem 11/16/2006

This place is a true gem on often overrated Union street. The sushi is fresh and delicious, the decor is inviting, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. They also have a large sake menu and every one I have tried so far has been fantastic! Pros: ambience, delicious food and sake Cons: a bit of a wait more

You better be good when your food is raw. 9/4/2006

You can scrap the atmosphere and the celebrity rolls anytime when your talking freshness and sticking to the basics. Sashimi here is the thickest and freshest you will find; the meat literally melts in your mouth. The portions are good sized, reasonably priced and the menu offers good variety even for the not so daring. Its a small local place without a lot of fan fare, but then again I am not there for the interior decorating or the scene. It's got a nice easy feel to it, great sake menu, and go figure lets me create atmosphere for a change whether it be friends or the one I love. Simply said its a great place if you want to eat and not be scene. Pros: Food & Sake Cons: Parking is always a challenge on Union. more

Good Sushi, No Frills 8/29/2006

Shipjack's has good sushi. The fish was fresh and the service was great. The restaurant is small but has a sushi bar in additional to table seating. This place is not super trendy but a good place to go for decent sushi and good service! Pros: Good fresh Sushi Cons: not much of an ambience more

Best Sushi, Sake, Service 7/8/2006

This is a great place to go any night of the week, the atmosphere is smooth and modern. The food is amazing, (my personal favorites are the Shiro Maguro Sashimi and the Dragon Roll). They have a premium sake selection hand picked by a respected sake master. The customer service is excellent, your tea cup or sake glass will never go empty. If you're looking for a new place, a date place, or a girl's night out, this is it. Pros: Food more

  • In Short
    A sushi bar backed by large sake bottles dominates one corner of the minimalist-style dining room. Blond wood, dropped lighting, and gray and slate blue walls give the one-room...
