In a recent SF Eater article, they showcased what diners can expect at Sushi Ondo. “At Sushi Ondo (1550 Howard Street),diners who choose the omakase menu will receive three flights of nigiri sushi interspersed with small Korean dishes called yori (similar to Japanese small plates called zensai), like mulhwe, Korean whitefish ceviche.” Hoodline also has an excellent article showcasing this new restaurant.


The yelp reviews are rolling in and diners are loving what they are serving up at Sushi Ondo. Here are a few reviews for those considering a visit:

As an avid consumer of omakase, I was both intrigued and skeptical about this concept of pairing traditional Japanese omakase with Korean dishes. But even in just its third week of operations, Sushi Ondo has really figured out how to bring the two together in a complementary way. And it makes perfect sense since the brains behind the concept are also behind Sushi Hon (excellent omakase) and Barnzu (contemporary Korean). They’ve mastered both cuisines, so why not make this beautiful love child? – Christina W.

Loved this place and their mission to pair Japanese Omakase with Delicious Korean dishes. A nice balance going from fresh mouth-watering fish to Korean meat, so no fish overload, which never happens to me but for some it can. Great service and they were able to make substitutions for my gluten free date. – Kevin B.

Only 2 weeks old and Sushi Ondo has things impressively fine-tuned. The omakase alternates between Japanese and Korean dishes and it works incredibly well. The sushi is beautifully prepared and ultra fresh and the Korean dumpling and stew are beautifully done and are well suited to pair with Japanese cuisine. – Justin G.

Sushi Ondo is located at 1550 Howard Street. You can learn more by visiting their website and following them on Instagram.
