About 10 years ago an aunt of ours recommended Musashi to us. She had been going there for years. Since then we have ordered a number of take out party platters for family Thanksgiving and New Year celebrations. We have been consistently impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. The sashimi is always fresh and perfectly cut. Many... More

I have been to Japan more than fifty times, and several of those trips involved stays of multiple months. If you add it all up, I have spent 2.5 years of my life in Japan, and loved it there. Needless to say, I have had lots of exposure to Japanese food in both major cities and in the bucolic wilds.... More

I'm pretty picky about Japanese restaurants. I'm often disappointed when visiting small neighborhood restaurants. Not so the case at Musashi. I had dinner with my daughter and friends here last night. Musashi is a small place - pretty unassuming. We had a 30 minute wait on a Saturday night. The quality of the fish (critical of course) was great and... More

The rolls and the fish where fresh and tasty. Just wish they had more choices on the menu. Very basic. The seaweed salad was also good but again, very basic. It is off a very tiny side street. Seems like an old, dirty, rundown area, lots of panhandlers. Shocking this is the location of the University of California Berkeley.

Food arrived on a variety of beautiful ceramics. Outstanding grilled items, try the tongue and the squid. Order a dinner and they will give you salad, miso soup, and pickled vegetables along with the main (meat and sautéd veg). Great selection of sake. Excellent value for the price; happy hour until 7pm. Attentive waitress. Traditional Japanese feel. Recommended!

"ohukuro no aji" That is what their sign outside says and It is so true. I've had various items here and 90% of them satisfies my japanese food needs. Agedashi Tofu, Chicken Kara-age, ika yaki, kakuni, gyu-don, chawan mushi, tempura to name a few are all good. Im not a fan of their wappa meshi but it very affordable price... More

While taking my Daughter to college this fall we stopped for lunch at this restaurant for Japanese food. My girls are gluten intollerant so Japanese is usually ok for us but this place was great! Very traditional place and good prices! and very good tasting!

My husband and I went right after they opened for the day, around 5:30 pm, and were the first customers. I had two kinds of nigiri sushi, my husband had udon, and we shared some ohitashi and edamame. They also made me onigiri at my request, despite it not being on the menu. Everything was very tasty, flavorful, and not... More
