Foursquare Tips

  • try their avocado tempura, you wont regret it!
  • Ask Robert for a ijumi Judan sake!
  • Come for lunch it's cheaper and the specials are great. Best is Friday for the garlic salmon. If you come for dinner check the board thy often have live shrimp and yellow tail collar
  • Lunch Soecial - Yellowtail Collar - wonderful
  • Go for the lunch specials and call ahead for a reservation. This place can get pricy and crowded. I enjoy their organic teriyaki chicken with sushi and salad. Yum.
  • Sit back and let Yama take care of you and you cannot go wrong...
  • omakase w/yama is the way to go
  • Enjoyed their sushi. Was told expressly only to eat at the sushi bar.
  • Lunch special combinations
  • Management must have changed; food is different from before. More "Americanized" and not as traditional as before. Service is still great, but... Unfortunate changes imo. Maybe better in the future.
  • Don't ever order tempura rolls. Sashimi set is decent but too pricy
  • Sit at the sushi bar where Jun is serving, he's the most skilled sushi chef at Kitayama! Sushi prepared for tables is made by the most junior sushi chef.
  • Amazing sushi and lunch specials
  • Try the maguro sashimi - it's delicious!
  • Kitayama was such a great place for dates few years back. The furnitures are a bit worn out, but the court yard still pretty. Most surprising was their vegan option! Very innovative and delicious.
  • The sukiyaki comes out on an individual heating tray. Fun to eat, and tasty, too!
  • Terrible Japanese food.
  • The Three Kings Roll is great!
  • Try the Salmon Teryaki - I love that I can walk over from Marriott Bayview! Few glasses of wine and only have to walk across the street!
  • Try the cucumber rolls - Great food, The bartender Ted is the best! Sit at the bar or outside and have a glass of wine with dinner!
