  1. I haven't been there in a while, but Downtown has been very good both times I've eaten there. They have a back (large) room with a door to keep out the loud bar and music.

    1. haven't been there in awhile either -- good idea. have you been to la rose?

      1. Venus Restaurant is pretty good. Casual but good food.

        1. We ate at Mount Everset the other night before a show .... atmosphere is not much, and its much too bright inside, but the food is great ... particularly the Nepalese dishes. The Berkeley Special ($18.99 - Tandoor shrimp & chicken, a wonderful lamb/cilantro dish, an Indian-style vegetable curry, a small bowl of dal, Rice, Naan and a couple other things) is enough for two to share, with maybe another dish thrown in too -- the Balinese chicken (about $8) was a very good accompaniment.

            Have they changed the old Burger King furniture?

              Nope, still the same. In fact I think you're the one that tipped me off to the place on tnis board. Bad furniture, good food. Perfect chow.

                They dressed it up a little. While the plastic booths remain, the tables have tablecloths and there are regular chairs at some tables. I liked Mt Everest and am always happy to see they seem to be doing good business when I drive by.

                Mount Everest
                2011 Shattuck (at University)

                We were there a few times just after it opened and really liked it.

              3. What about Angeline's for Creole food? I know there was some discussion about authenticity of the gumbo but I've enjoyed it two times, and loved the hush puppies and the barbecued shrimp.

                Angeline's Restaurant
                2261 Shattuck Ave
                Berkeley, CA 94704

                  Unfortunately, Angeline's is closed on Sundays.

                    They've fixed that space up very nicely.
