What I think people should be aware of is that the nori has now been contaminated with radiation. According to one study, the seaweed off the Pacific coast is now 500% higher in radioactive iodine 137- that affects your throid, than before Fukushima. I wouldn't even consider eating the nori from Japan and would ask your local sushi restaurant where they buy their nori wraps. We need to find out how much radiation is in Nori and I don't think we know that at this time. An article written this year- California Slammed With Fukushima Radiation Posted on March 30, 2012 by WashingtonsBlog www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/03/california-slammed-with-fukushima-radiation.html The Journal Environmental Science and Technology reports in a new study that the Fukushima radiation plume contacted North America at California “with greatest exposure in central and southern California”, and that Southern California’s seaweed tested over 500% higher for radioactive iodine-131 than anywhere else in the U.S. and Canada: Projected paths of the radioactive atmospheric plume emanating from the Fukushima reactors, best described as airborne particles or aerosols for 131I, 137Cs, and 35S, and subsequent atmospheric monitoring showed it coming in contact with the North American continent at California, with greatest exposure in central and southern California. Government monitoring sites in Anaheim (southern California) recorded peak airborne concentrations of 131I at 1.9 pCi m−3

Come on now, people. Sushi Ran is the best sushi in Marin by a country mile. It might not be worth the money you pay there, but it is the best. 69 isn't even in the ballpark.
mike jones July 23, 2012 at 09:23 PM
Yes john sushi ran may be the best but for me its only a special night because it will cost you but Yu Shang in san rafael is the best if you don't wanna be broke after. How is Yu shang left off the list?
Donielle Chelini July 24, 2012 at 05:19 AM
Yu Shang's

Anyone voting for anything other than Sushi 69 obviously hasn't been there. Sushi 69 is better than ANYWHERE, even Japan. BEST!
Kim Burggraf July 25, 2012 at 07:36 PM
YU Shang is the bomb of all bombs! Can we add by popular demand?

Tenkyu in San Rafael is the only place I go when I eat out, plain and simple.
Karen Mainini August 02, 2012 at 03:21 PM

Karen Mainini August 02, 2012 at 03:23 PM
