I've eaten here twice in recent months, both times for lunch, and been pleasantly surprised by the sushi, a tempura roll, and also a two-for-one deal. It is actually a little pricey, but the fish is fresh. Service has been uniformly friendly and efficient. The decor is so ugly it is beyond belief---tastelessness at this level is almost worth a...

Tasty fish. Don't let the price scare you, the orders of two piece nigiri share like four so bring a friend and try some new cuts!

A small neighborhood restaurant with a very nice variety of fresh sushi and other dishes. We have experienced good service combined with reasonable prices.

Small place on Upper Solano -- a street with many, many restaurants. We were there again tonight (maybe our 10th visit!) -- a repeat for us after trying sushi at many other spots. Everything is so very fresh, nigiri sushi choices are 2X the size you will find at other places, rolls are tasty and everything is beautifully arranged. Whether... More

We gave Sushi 29 another chance and it will likely be the last time we go there. The wait staff was slow and uninformed. They couldn't tell us about the duck and couldn't be bothered to check with the kitchen. The portions were very small and the price was quite high. They goofed on the order as well. That is... More

I love the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant, first of all. It is fun and stylish. Then the food is also great -- not just your usual sushi fare, but some menu items I haven't seen elsewhere, including full meals with salmon and some yummy appetizers. The waitstaff is friendly as well. My sister and I had a tasty... More

Ordered potstickers first, they were just average, nothing special. The sushi was good. Get the crispy California roll, it is amazing. Really liked the double salmon roll, very fresh. I didn't like the spicy tuna roll at all, it was really fishy.

I visit from England to stay with family quite often and have always used the great sushi bar nearby! I now have a really hard decision to make next time as to which one to visit, both are great restaurants. My favourite dish was the Golden Gate Sushi which was so good we ordered another! Godzilla Roll is worth a... More

We stopped here after an Ohio State - Berkeley Football Game....the Japanese restaurant we used to go to had changed owners and was no longer Japanese - so we stopped here instead. The food was very good - very fresh sashimi, excellent salad, good appetizers, saki, and green tea ice cream for dessert. Nice food - yummy and fresh. Not... More

A recent accident has temporarily closed the locally appreciated (if not beloved) Sushi 29. An automobile failed to stop outside and came crashing into the restaurant a short time ago. This is a loss to everyone, most seriously to the family that owns and runs Sushi 29, but also to the driver and of course to the neighborhood, too. One... More
