""Food is mediocre at best. The sushi did not seem as fresh as it could be.
I ordered a roll and requested no cucumbers due to an allergy. 10 minutes later it was delivered full of cucumbers to my chagrine and the chef refused to return it.
Service is incompetent and rude. I love Japanese food, lived in Japan for 10 years), and eat out a lot.
There are plenty of good choices in the East Bay for Japanese food. Why choose the worst?""
Probably the worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant. After living in Japan and experiencing quite a lot of exclusion/rascism, I will not accept being treated that poorly in my native land.
Avoid Sushi Banzai on principle but I'm sure the owner thinks there are a ton of gaijin he can fool.
Cons: incompetent, rascist, rude
