Chotto vs Izakaya Sozai. Also other current SF Izakaya thoughts?

pauliface | Jun 27, 201109:37 AM     23

I have my SF favorites for Japanese (Kappou Goumi, Kiss, Sushi Time, Ino, Nihon Whiskey Lounge, and Yume across the bridge. I even like Juban from time to time).
But a number of new Izakaya style places have opened that I have not tried.

Tonight specifically (it's a Monday so the choices are fewer, as many are closed) I'm trying to pick between Izakaya Sozai and Chotto. Has anyone been to both who would like to compare?

And generally speaking, I'm curious for thoughts on Halu, Ju-Ku and Sebo. Have not tried these. (Note, I have tried Nombe and liked it but for the price have not been tempted to return)

Thanks!
