Owners Eun-Joo Chang and her husband Jin Chung, also the head chef, took over a space at 357 Castro St. (Suite 3A) earlier this year after Sono Sushi closed.
Chung previously worked at a large Japanese restaurant in Fresno, but the couple was always interested in opening their own place, either in downtown Mountain View or Palo Alto, Chang said.
“My favorite cuisine is Japanese, even though I’m Korean,” Chang said. “I just love sushi and sashimi.”
Rumble Fish serves everything from sashimi, nigiri and rolls (there are close to 40 of them) to udon, chicken katsu, yakitori and fresh oysters. Chang said all the sushi is made from “very, very high-end, quality fish.”
Drinks-wise, she said an increasing number of customers also expect not only quality sake, but high-end wine, so they’re working to boost that part of the menu.
