Good, not great.
For all the hype, I was disappointed. Tasty, but you’re basically paying for a lot of rice.
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:Onigilly’s very small storefront provides just enough space to order and watch them make your order. The turnaround is fast since everything is made and ready to assemble.

What I ate:
- Onigilly Set (3 per set) ($9)
I chose snow crab, spicy shrimp and teriyaki chicken. By far the best one was the shrimp, it was the only one that didn’t get lost in all the rice. Each onigilly is 2 thick triangles of rice stuffed with your choice of filling and wrapped in seaweed. The set comes with 3 pickles and a few edamame. I was definitely full after the meal, which sounds like a good deal in San Francisco for $9, but there is so much rice that it doesn’t actually seem to be worth the price. I’m glad I tried it once; however, I don’t see myself going back.
