“Tempura’d goodness’ll roll out of a dark-wooded sushi bar and include epic rolls like the Red Monkey (deep-fried spicy tuna/seared albacore/salsa/garlic ponzu) and the Spicy Cracker (deep-fatted seaweed/spicy tuna/avocado)…Saru’s got an extensive rice wine program and mad Japanese beers like Echigo and Asahi Black, so you’ll have no trouble wetting your warp whistle.”

“Noe Valley finally has a destination sushi bar.”

”The Naked Scallop” roll blew my mind! Filled with snow crab, avocado, scallops, masago, and wrapped with soy paper, the whole thing just melted in my mouth and left me yearning for more.”

San Francisco Magazine

“A notably stylish joint…where everything from the ponzu to the soy sauce is made in-house.”
