    Great lunch menu and prices on combos! My black mussel udon was LOADED. Not obvious from photo, but I needed a separate bowl for the shells...

    Lunch menu is only M-Th! The pommes fries were delicious. Scallops on the risotto were also very tasty.

    Cinderella roll, veggie gyoza, sake. Be warned though that the service is hit or miss and mostly servers who haven't worked in the industry. Patience for BS pays, though, as the food is quite good.

    Sit on the patio if the weather is nice -- they have pretty lights. Good spot for a birthday dinner or date. Little expensive, but great sushi! Service is slow.

    Some of the best sushi in Berkeley! Be prepared to wait a good bit for your rolls (~15-20 mins) but VERY worth it!

    The best japanese restaurant in Berkeley! It's not cheap, but worth it! Albacore Tataki and Spicy Crunch are the best ones!

    I thought their appetizers were gorgeous, but then we tried the rolls. Super-yummy, and you can't really go wrong with anything.

    They have one of the most delightful tiramisu, but they may run out so be sure to check with the waitors!

    The monkfish liver foie gras is very tasty. And be sure to check the "freshly caught" board.

    The sushi is so flavorful. Can never go wrong with the lion king or zoolander.

    Seaweed salad is fresh and a cool complement to the spicy crab in the lucky sushi boat

    Poor service. Not sure why they have a menu they were out of about 10 things and what we were able to order did not come as described in the menu.

    Way overpriced for what you get and it's crowded. Service was terrible when we went.
