    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.

    Bite into the California Handroll gives you the creaminess from the avocado and crab and offset by the vinegar, which offers a slightly sweet and salty flavor added into the rice. Read more

    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.

    Joshuya Brasserie's Pork Belly Porridge truly hits the spot with strips of pork belly, fried gyoza, and a clean and simple, deliciously fried egg. Read more

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    BerkeleyRestaurantWeek pulled pork items were not worthy of even a "meh" rating. Sushi was really good though.
