Little Japanese/Sushi Place on Laguna and Sutter

A friend of mine came across this place and suggested trying it out. It didn'thave a large sign or anything, but a small thing on the door seemed to indicate that it's called Kiss Seafood or something like that. This immaculate place seats 12 and turned out to be quite good for the price.

We had the omakase dinner which offered 7 courses plus dessert (grapes and fig) at $35.

Some hightlights:

I really enjoyed this appetizer that consisted of a jelly made from broth and had chunks of vegetables and fish embedded in it. I liked this a lot!

The sashimi course had an excellent prawn sashimi. The cut of maguro (tuna) here was also nice but a notch below some of the better ones I had.

The sushi course with just 3 things (salmon roe, tuna, and halibut) was also worthwhile.

The chawan mushi (savory egg custard with fish and vegetables) was also silky and wonderful.

Their miso soup was too mild and not as tasty.

Portions and timing was just right. But I would have loved more sushi.

Has anyone else been there? Love to hear a second opinion.

On a different note, I had a kaiseiki dinner at Kyo-ya last week, which was very enjoyable and not too outrageously priced ($60, which included a serving of pretty good sake). The portions were generous, beautifully presented and well prepared. I loved their cashew crusted eel. Only complaint was the pacing - the food came out too quickly.
