Sushi Ran

In the pretty seaside village of Sausalito just across the Golden Gate Bridge, Sushi Ran has been turning out what many consider to be the Bay Area's best sushi for nearly 30 years. The sushi menu is executed by 2013 World Sushi Cup–winning chef Taka Toshi and Michelin-starred chef Seiji Wakabayashi, who together deliver impeccably fresh, maki, nigiri and sashimi dishes that are miniature works of art. The equally delightful non-sushi side of the menu is worth a look, with specialties such as kaffir lime–roasted sea bass, scallop-chive dumplings and wagyu beef carpaccio with arugula and micro red cabbage.

I've been going to Sushi Ran for years and the quality and service has only increased with every visit. Every bite of every dish takes me twice as long because I want it to last that much longer - Not to mention the time spent after each bite where i look at my wife and say "it's sooo good!"

I LOVE Sushi ran.  Most important, the fish is always fresh so I feel safe ordering anything off the menu. The cooked dishes are unique and I like that they make menu changes adding new dishes as well.  I was not familiar with Sushi Ran when I first moved to Sausalito; I now know people come from all over the Bay Area to go there. The first time I ate there I was raving to everyone that I'd "found the BEST Japanese restaurant"  and they were all like "well, duh!" Seems everyone knew but me! It's a popular local hangout for dinner, or just to meet up for a glass of wine and appetizer. I love the relaxed atmosphere and people are always so friendly. I usually end up chatting with all kinds of new people (locals and tourists) at the Sushi Bar.

Sushi Ran is one of my favorite restaurants. A great place to celebrate a special occasion or just meet friends after work. The fish is always extremely fresh and unique - I almost always try something new every time I go. I also like that they pick sustainable seafood. Sake selection is great!
