We had a very delicious dinner here, and it was really hopping on a monday night! We ordered a bunch of appetizers: Tako-yaki, fried octopus balls, which were very yummy- little balls with bits of chopped up octopus in them, We also ordered jalapeno poppers which had cheese in them and were breaded in panko, not too spicy. We had... More

The host at the restaurant has limited planing skill and lack of customer services ! I was told that my table will be ready in 20 minutes and took almost 1 hour . A lot of frustration and miscommunication with this gentleman and the customers . Later he came to my table and offered me an ice cream because the... More

This is our second trip to this delicious Japanese-sushi restaurant and it was just as delicious as the first visit! There are many choices-something for everyone to enjoy. This is one of my favorite sushi restaurants!

I am an avid sushi eater and was visiting the area on family vacation. We wanted some sushi and the one place that was recommended did not have carry out so we chose this place to pick up. It was fresh but the cutting of the roll was terrible. The pieces were way too big and the rice was rather... More

I had the omakase (chef's choice) 10 pc. sushi. It was completely fresh and absolutely delicious. The ambience was very nice - it was a nice day and we ate outside in the lovely courtyard. Service was excellent. We all ordered the tempura ice cream for dessert and my companions dessert looked perfect but mine was kind of melty and... More

I went with three other friends on a Friday night, about 9:30. We ordered in the restaurant and asked to take it out so we could eat at home. Service was exceedingly slow - most of our order was done quickly but the one chef who was preparing sashimi that night (I guess the only one there at the time... More

The sashimi lunch was pretty fresh and the selection - scallops, salmon with roe and whitefish. Will go back whenever in Cal.

Great local spot, cool patio seating (space heaters available) and cozy seating on the inside, including at the counter. They were very busy Sunday at 6:30 PM when we arrived. My first visit but based on the quality of the food (freshness, temperature, presentation, taste), I understand why. We ordered a couple rolls and sweet potato fries. The Lion King... More

I was in Berkeley for a course and I bumped into this place. It is pretty far from the main road (around 4-5 blocks) but it is worth the walking. The sushi is superb and fresh. There is a large variety of fish and some specialties. I would definitely recommend it. The prices are really good compared to the usual... More
