Slimy, tasteless Mac n cheese. Tried their homemade burrito which was cold and bland. Even their homemade cookie was rock hard and boring. If you do go here stick with the chicken dishes.

I bought some salads to take out and paid by credit card. The terminal asked whether I wanted to leave a tip. I said"no" because I don't expect to tip on a takeout order. The server was clearly displeased. This suggests that either (a) she is underpaid and needs tips to make ends meet or (b) she is greedy. The... More

A great place to put together a takeout/picnic meal - roasted chicken, lots of interesting salads and sides, and more. We fell in love with the lemon-garlic-rosemary chicken, the kale-apple salad, and the tomato-arugula-mozzarella salad.

This was,in fact, one of the very first restaurants that helped to create Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto. Like the name indicates, it's very chicken centic. It's a lovely place to eat, and you order at the counter. You therefore are able to SEE all of the salads, soups, and meals. You can pick out the ones that Turn You On. The... More

The sign said hours are 10 until 8. We entered at 7:30 and the food was wrapped up tight and the place was empty. The server was annoyed when we walked in and said the food was only for take out. Sorry we bothered her. Thank goodness there are other, more friendly places to eat in Berkeley. This place was... More

Chicken in many ways, all seem great, the one I had was great, plus yummy creative salads. We ate in and the seating area was very pleasant. SInce there is counter service you can pick what you want and get it quickly.

As a veggie lover I can always find a dish to try at Poulet although occasionally I get a meaty chicken breast at a reasonable cost. These days my carb free diet can even get a makeover by trying eggplant with yougurt dressing, kale salads, slaws, white bean salads, and peas with prosciutto. The servers always humor me by only...
