We met 4 friends here for our first visit and it exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere felt very comfortable, intimate, quiet but not secluded. We arrived right after they opened and after the first hour 60% of the tables were filled. Our waitress was charming and her help was appreciated since this was our first visit. Everyone loved their food... More

Katsu Restaurant is a small spot tucked away in a strip mall adjacent to Lucky Store and Doug's Restaurant. The ambiance is cozy and quiet.

This little sushi place is hidden in a strip mall in Castro Valley. It's a favorite with locals who swear by it because of their freshness. I like their rolls but I think where they really shine is their fresh fish in their nigiri and hand rolls.

If you're looking for great sushi that won't break you bank this is the place to go! Always fresh, always delicious! They don't have any frill and lace but if that means holding onto some of my hard earned money and getting the quality of fish I'll take it. This is our go to sushi place!
