Chef Mourad understands how to incorporate bold, balanced flavors in every bite. Aziza is one of my favorite spots in San Francisco.
One of the most inspiring meals of the year. Each and every course was masterfully prepared, extremely flavorful and provoking.

Pristine sushi with bold, balanced, delicate flavors. I take my family here every week (and it is 60 miles away!).
