    55555 by Brodie W

  • Marissa C.My favorite Japanese restaurant in the Mission-Castro area. Known for their tofu but also have some of the freshest 🍣 in town

    55555 by Marissa C.

  • Simon W.This place is a real hidden gem - it's pleasantly low key with really high quality food. Strawberry Mochi and the tofu are highlights. They also open for lunch with a tasty and filling $15 lunch menu.

    55555 by Simon W.

  • Alex PlutzerThe strawberry mochi and ankake tofu are really special

    55555 by Alex Plutzer

    55555 by Sahil D.

  • Alexandros BI'm not a fan of sushi, yet I loved every single dish in this place. With about $45 per person you can get a decent dinner.

    55555 by Alexandros B
