Sushi Ko has been anchoring the once hot , busy and now hovering on life support Larkspur Landing mall just a stone's throw from San Quentin for 30 years. It has weathered the many comings and goings of different businesses in this beleagured mall that is trying to compete with 2 other malls in the tiny Twin Cities (Larspur and Corte Madera) of only 25k people.
Being in Marin, where there are very few if any really good Asian restaurants of any kind, (You go to SF for that!), Sushi Ko caters to their audience. The sushi is heavily leaning toward popular non-Japanese rolls of all sorts, Americanized for the local palettes.
I went on a Sunday evening, when there is a Japanese sushi chef there who knows what he is doing (the only night he works here), but the place is caucasian owned by the silver haired lady that just seated you. So there is onlyt so much he can do for you.
The prices for sushi are fair: maguro $4.95, Hamachi $5.50, Kanpachi $5.50, Aji $4.50, and Toro $9.50.
Vegetable Udon, $8.75. Otokoyama cold sake, $6.95.
Probably the best thing to order here is the bento combinations. Designed to please the clientelle, too, but it is hard to screw up teriyaki, and the tempura is ok.
The sushi is ok, not great. But what can you expect? If you don't want to drive over the GG Bridge to get more authentic sushi, go here for a local fix to keep you going until you can cross the water another day.
