Best. Japanese. Ever.


I really want to like the food, but It was okay. The salmon & unagi nigiri were nice though. The delivery however it took almost 2 hours. I don't think i'll order again.

I always could eat sushi! 3/24/2010

OK, aside from offering all the typical rolls you have come to crave when it comes to sushi and making them really well, Wasabi and Ginger also offers sushi made with foie gros. For me that was the standout of the evening! more

Great Food! For a good price. A local favorite. 2/16/2010

This place is really great, and was recently remodeled. New comfortable chairs have replaced the old wooden ones, and tile surrounds the bar. Some of the better tiger and dragon rolls I've tasted in SF. Most meals come with complimentary soup, salad, eda mame, & green tea ice cream. There is a special section that can be reserved for parties, where people sit around a traditional Japanese style table. Service has been excellent with the exception of a few times during slow midweek business hours. Still one of my favorite places to go with a date or friend. Nice quite atmosphere (I don't have to shout over crowds or loud music) and great food. Pros: complimentary dishes, great food and a nice quiet atmosphere Cons: service is usually good, but can be inconsistant. more


Sushi is average at best. Service is the worst. They pretend to be nice and then talk sh*t in chinese. Slow and not attending. Don't ever order for delivery. Called was STILL ON THE WAY 1.5 hours after ordering. Rude and overpriced sushi...definitely not worth it. I WILL NEVER GO BACK!!! more

good sushi. could use some help with the service 9/8/2006

The sushi is always fresh & delicious at W&G. However, depending on who serves you, you could wait a long time to give your order to the waitstaff, get your food, get refills on water/drinks, etc. Pros: delicious sushi (especially the rolls) Cons: service, lack of parking in the neighborhood more

Good food, worst service 11/12/2005

The sushi and presentation was very good, fresh and creative. But the service was horrible. They forgot things, took forever, and didn't pay attention to my party. If it was amazing food I would recommend it but I can't say that I had a great experience. more



Great value, good food 9/22/2003

I go to Wasabi and Ginger more than any other sushi place in the city. So affordable and good. Pros: Solid value Cons: Dull atmosphere, Parking not easy more

Good Local Sushi Spot... 7/5/2003

Walked by Wasabi&Ginger many times but finally stopped in last week. Started off with a sake cocktail and shrimp stars. Moved on to the tempura, salmon teriyaki and salmon rolls. All the food was very good, the menu is very diverse for a small restaurant. Decor is simple and the service is very good. A great spot for a quick bite to eat with no pretentiousness.... Pros: Good Service, Diverse Menu more

11 out of 10 rating 6/16/2003

Free valet, free edamame, free dessert! This is, BY FAR, my favorite sushi restaurant in the city! Everything on the menu is excellent and their innovative rolls are wonderful. It is not overpriced and the atmosphere is not snooty. I cannot say enough good things about this place. You have to go....I do about three times a month! Pros: Excellent sushi, staff is great, free valet Cons: Decor could be better more

The Best Ever 12/13/2002

I'm from Philadelphia and before visiting SF, I searched citysearch for the best sushi restaurant. After all that research I stumbled upon Wasabi and Ginger while walking down Van Ness. It is crazy that W&G isn't #1 on this thing. It was the most creative sushi I've ever had. I thrive on ""special rolls"" and they had an entire menu page PLUS daily special rolls! Really nice service and fast too. FRESH fish! Highly recommend it. more


Incredibly fresh and large sushi portions, best rolls, and free valet parking make it the best sushi spot in town. The front room with its sunken tables is a great spot for large groups to get together for sushi and drinks. more

Yum! 10/22/2002

This place is delicious! The sushi is fresh, the people are nice, and the valet holds my dog for me if I am picking up a togo order! They are great! more

great sushi without the wait 10/1/2002

my roommate recommended this place to me, and i'm glad she did. the sushi was fresh, the rolls were interesting, and there was no wait on a friday night! there are definitely places with better atmosphere and food, but this is a great find for one of those nights when you just want good food at a decent price, but you don't want to do the usual, crowded scene. more

Great recommendation from hostess 9/11/2002

My husband and I have been looking for a reasonably priced, good quality Japanese sushi restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by W&G. The hostess/server asked us whether we had been there before, and made a couple of recommendations (their special spider roll, spicy roll) that we thoroughly enjoyed. The prices were reasonable. On top of all of this, there was free valet parking! Pros: Free valet parking, Fresh sushi more

W&G rules 8/30/2002

It rules that i live a block away from this place. The fish is always fresh, everything is decently priced, and the staff is awesome. Im surprised this place isnt jumpin all the time. Pros: Quick seating, Fresh more

This place rocks! 8/20/2002

I stumbled across this place shortly after it opened and have been a regular ever since. The fish is fresh, the prices are fair, and the service is good. Pros: Reasonably priced, Valet parking more

    Sushi-starved locals head here for quality rolls served by a staff that's known for being congenial and prompt. Good for groups, the casual dining room makes up for its lack of...
