Name your pick(s).... Im very flexible on budget, am willing to spend top $$ if its worth it.
OK... must I conclude that the top Japanese fare in SFO is airport quality gyozas...????
Actually, T-2 has a high quality sushi bar. During peak hours, you can sit at the bar and it is like a real sushi bar. During off hours, there are pre-made to-go boxes.
besides the in airport place mentioned above chowhound.com is a really good place to search for a wealth of information.
Well... I have had top quality Gyozas at Narita... so anything is possible....
I wanted to try this place when I departed SFO this time around, but my logistics meeting at the airport had to be scheduled at another terminal so I missed out.... grrrrr
Will make a point of of visiting this place next time I fly into this airport.
I would say that the top Japanese food closest to SFO is 10 1/2 hours away -- in Tokyo. But I must admit that the last time I passed that Japanese place (I assume you are referring to the one in international terminal G), it was doing a pretty good business.
Back in February 2009, I asked a foodie colleague of mine from SFBay where to go for sushi between Palo Alto and SFO. She pointed me at Sushi Kei in Millbrae. It was very good, but I don't think I'd say it was amazing. But it was pretty close to SFO, IIRC.
Sakae Sushi in Burlingame is the best sushi I have had in the Bay Area, plus some of the menu items are excellent. Not cheap, but worth an occasional splurge.
My boss and I are both traveling to SFBay this week and we're going to have sushi Tuesday night. He suggested going into SF proper since we normally never make it there from the Peninsula.
Would you vote for Sakae in Burlingame, over any place in SF?
I'm not as familiar with the sushi places in SF, but friends tell me that Sakae is comparable or better than the best places in the city as far as quality and freshness of fish. Going to SF would be a different experience, of course, and probably more fun.
Ended up at Sen Dai in Milipitas... Boss didn't want to drive north. Very tasty.

Looks nice- somewhere I need to try soon! Thanks for the picture.
Kappou Gomi in SF. Not a sushi place, but amazing authentic Japanese food.
Sushi Sams is an unassuming, good sushi place in San Mateo - just 10-15 mins drive from SFO.
