So much tasty food at low prices! We arrived in time for Happy Hour so many items were even less money. The drink menu included over 20 different sakes plus a bunch of other Japanese drinks. We had a terrific seaweed salad and a lightly...More

Perhaps the best sushi and Japanese I’ve had in the states. I just picked a place with good reviews and went. Don’t let the outside discourage what you’ll find inside. Everyone was extremely pleasant and I was fortunate to walk in and be seated at...More

We were visiting friends in Berkeley and they said this was their favorite Japanese restaurants. Decor is basic, seating is tight, and service is average. Sushi is good - we had maki and nigiri - many varieties of rolls - and everything was good. No...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,...More

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...More
