I grew up in Japan and the sushi here was like the "fast food" or "deli" sushi found in local supermarkets - edible, but average at best. The quality of the fish here was mediocre (some pieces were downright stringy and chewy), and the fish was so thinly sliced that if you held it up to the light, you would be able to see the cheap wall decorations hung up on the restaurant walls through it. We were excited to try Zushi after reading the rave Citysearch reviews, but were highly disappointed with our visit. There are hundreds of other mundane sushi restaurants in the city that are worth a second visit before this one.

Pros: Service, No wait (about 15, people on Fri night)

Cons: Quality and flavor, Parking, Empty

I've always loved sushi and have been to numerous places in the city. I just went to Zushi Puzzle last night and it has got to be the best sushi I've ever tasted. The fish is fresh and everything just melts in your mouth, like butter. I would highly recommend the Romeo & Juliet and also the Armadillo Roll. The wait for the food to come out was a bit long, but definitely well worth it.

Roger is the most amazing sushi chef. We go to Zushi Puzzle about twice a week and always make a point of sitting at the bar. Hands down the best sushi anywhere.

There is no denying that Roger serves the freshest and finest sushi in the Bay Area. Our whole family unanimously agrees to go here every time we go out to have sushi. Yeah, we have tried several of the other highly rated sushi places in the Bay Area, but nowhere is there finer sushi and specialty rolls than here. Once you have tried it, you will be looking forward to going back again and again...as does my family and I.

Roger is hands down the most talented sushi chef I've ever encountered. I have been to Zushi Puzzle four times in the last three months, and he continues to surprise me. His rolls are delicious and creative, and if the live scallops are available, they are a MUST! :)

Zushi Puzzle has the most fresh, best tasting sushi. Since eating there, I have a hard time trying new places. The butterfish is unbelieveable, and their rolls are original and delicious. Make a reservation for sure, and sit at the bar if there are just a few of you.

Zushi Puzzle has some of the best Sushi in SF! If you have time for a bit of a wait, hold out to sit at the sushi bar... the sushi chef is totally entertaining and if you're charming enough, you might get a roll named after you!

PROS: Great Food!
CONS: Some things are a little too spicy -- look out!

We sat at the sushi bar and Roger the sushi chef took care of us, even though it was our first time there. Do try the butterfish, it's heavenly. He'd give us different things to try and we even got free dessert and saki. The whole staff spoke Cantonese there, but Roger is truely a master sushi chef. We noticed the sous-chef making dishes for take out and the tables in the restaurant. So, sit in the sushi bar. Oddly enough, pictures on the restaurant walls have only Caucasian patrons in them and no Asians.

I was a total skeptic going to Zushi Puzzle... I mean, I already *had* a favorite sushi place across town, but I went and I was BLOWN AWAY. The fish is so fresh, Roger gets the best, most interesting varieties from around the world... Butterfish, flying fish, Japanese Uni (sooo sweet), and the Live scallop are to die for. His presentation is amazing and he even serves fresh wasabi. If you like uni, be sure to try the Maika roll - uni, eel, and a quail egg to top it off! So good!

The sushi melts in your mouth and the service is excellent. The staff is very friendly and efficient. ROGER, the sushi chef, knows all the regular customers and makes everyone feel right at home after your first dining experience. All you need to do is put your faith in Roger and he will serve the best fish you have ever had. Since eating at Zushi Puzzle about a year ago, I will not eat sushi anywhere else. My boyfriend and I went somewhere else once (which will remain nameless) and we couldn't even eat it after having Roger's amazing creations. His fish is fresh, his rolls are original and his personality is delightful. The best sushi place in the worls!

I've tried the romeo and juliet, dynasty spider, and dragon roll. Those three were made in a very good combination of flavors. It was such a harmony melted in my mouth (so iron chef's commentary). The presentation of the rolls/sushi is a work of art. It's worth it, although the prices are bit too expensive. You should try the beef short ribs and the agedashi tofu too. They're so yummy. The service was okay, and the food comes pretty fast.

WOW, we ate there the other night and it was the best zushi I have ever had. ROGER is the king of Sushi. We had the SK YUM YUM roll and it was the best thing I have ever eaten. I also really like the live scallops and butter fish. but the Yum yum roll had the butter fish and scallops and avacado with a little spicy sauce. it was GREAT!!!! I would get two.

Roger is simply amazing! His creations melt in your mouth, he always insists on using nothing but the freshest and finest ingredients and he always has something new and exciting to try (if you are feeling adventurous). Roger and his staff are unusually friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. If you don't like something, tell Roger who will be sure to fix it any way you like, or suggest something better suited for your unique taste. I would recommend this place to anyone. Some of Rogers unique and delectable rolls include the Live Scallop, Supa Mike, Killer Josh, Armadillo, and butterfish Nigiri.

I dont know what all the hoopla is about. This place didn't come close to meeting my expectations! I ordered the Salmon Teriyaki and it was old and dry. The rolls were good but the food wasn't expectionally that great. Our table smelled of mold and we were moved to another table. Compliments of the house was the Saki that was great!
Definitely not worth the value buyer beware!

You've got to taste all kinds of sushi there.

I can't remember all those fancy names they give to the sushi (Billy Boy? Danny something... etc.) But I highly recommend one kinda of sushi which the skin is green (maybe made of grean bean paste?) slightly deep fried, with avocado and great fresh stuffing inside...Mmm... Yum...

Sashimi is great too. Fresh.

Only thing to complain is-- the free green tea they served, tasteless.

I just want to say the dishes prepared by Roger are delicious. We came all the way from New York and was highly recommended to go the Resturant. The experience was fantastic. Not only was Chef Roger friendly more than importantly the food was just how we New Yorkers say it "Bangin". And I am not even a big of Japanese food, from the sushi to the sashimi to the hand rolls and etc...(names I don't know really) everything was good. This is what i call good food and decent pricing as well. If you a fan of Japanese Cuisine you must!

If there is anyone in the city who has not yet experienced the gem that is Zushi puzzle, they are seriously missing out. Chef Roger presents to you, one of the finest, refined and unique sushi experiences one can find. Stand outs by far are the live uni and live scallops, along with pretty much anything else he slides your way. Exquisite traditional sushi. The one bad thing I can say is.......... that the meals have to eventually come to an end.

If you haven't been to this marina sushi bar, you are missing out! It's by far the best sushi I've ever had in San Francisco. I should know (as my name states). Definitely try the Mighty Masha roll - shrimp tempura on the inside with butterfish, avocado, and spicy sauce on the outside. It's not on the menu but Roger, the owner/chef will make it for you. It's so delicious that I'm still tasting it.

This place is all about Chef Roger. He works alone behind the sushi bar, quickly creating top notch sushi for the entire restaurant. Because it's just Roger, it's consistently great food. Plenty of space at this restaurant - I've brought large groups here multiple times with plenty of space to stretch out and even mingle around. The food can come out a bit slow when the restaurant is full of customers, but it's worth waiting for. Very reasonable prices for the high quality sushi.

My son and I vacationed in San Francisco after his college graduation and we stumbled on Zushi Puzzle as we stayed in a hotel less than a half mile away.

Simply remarkable. Incredibly fresh, and generous portions. Roger, the owner and chef, made us feel incredibly at home. The sashimi and rolls were the best I ever had (even better when complemented with his special reserve Korean sake blend). We failed to save enough room for dessert, but it looked decadent. I can't say enough good things about this place. The value, friendliness of the staff, and quality of the food made for a remarkable time. Don't miss this SF gem.

I've come to love Zushi Puzzle! My Japanese upbringing has made me a stickler about keeping Japanese food traditional, but this is the first time I just don't care. The Puzzle Large nigiri sushi and price are amazing, and all the special rolls are unique and tasty. Roger is definitely an artist. His combinations are new and definitely deviate from standard sushi, but are always delicious. So far all the non-sushi items Ive tried (Gomaae, Agedashi Tofu, Sukiyaki, and Nabeyaki Udon) have all been different, but only the latter two noodle dishes have disappointed. Regardless, my recommendation is to go for the SUSHI lovin and save the cooked stuff for another place! So far, all three times that Ive gone there hasnt been a crowd, so please support Roger! He might not be Japanese, but he sure knows sushi.

Honestly Zushi Puzzle's sushi is better than Sushi Groove's, and rivals Ebisu. I can't believe more people don't know about this place yet! Even better, they have friendly, attentive & accomodating service, and a family-like feel since everyone knows who Roger, the sushi chef in the aloha shirt, is. An overall winner. Modestly priced too.

When it comes to a true sushi experience, there is no substitute to Zushi Puzzle. Sake bombs, wasabi roulette, you name it!! The creativity and freshness of Chef Rodger's inventions are amazing. I suggest the Supa Mike, Killer Josh, and Frank Rising rolls.

Pros: Fresh, Fun, Not crowded
