Dad and I dropped in to Ai Sushi on Geary in San Francisco one evening, and enjoyed some dinner. We noticed immediately that it was geared more to sake & sushi parties than diners. From the photos on the wall, it looked like there is quite a party crowd enjoying the bright ambiance here.
My dinner started with a nothing special but OK salad.
And Dad's started with a warm miso soup, which he liked.
The Sunset Roll was really good -- it was essentially a California Roll topped with eel and avocado. This was the most impressive thing we had.
Dad enjoyed the Chicken Teriyaki and Tempura Bento box.
I had Tempura Zaru Soba. The tempura was served first.
Closely followed by the Zaru Soba part of the equation. The Tempura and Soba were fine, but not remarkable. The dipping sauce for the noodles was quite snazzy and inventive as well.
