Oakland or Berkeley Sushi - besides Kirala?

  • 8

Does anyone have a recommendation for good sushi other than Kirala in the Oakland / Berkeley?

    1. I'm not much into fusion rolls so I can't make a recommendation there.

      For a more traditional experience, check out Sushi Sho (on Solano) or Uzen (on College, near Broadway).

      1. Sushi House in Alameda is pretty good and reasonably priced. Their Island Roll is awesome. It gets pretty crowded, though.

          1. Mitama, Tachibana, and Uzen, all on College (in order, if you're driving from Berkeley to Oakland, starting at the corner of College and Alcatraz).

              Thanks for the reminder about Mitama. I still haven't gotten to check this place out. A recent report says that Mitama has been getting some fish from Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo:


              Does anyone know if this is a regular practice of the restaurant, or something more occasional?

            2. Angelfish or Yume, both in Alameda, but both worth the drive. Best sushi I've ever had anywhere. Best "bang for the buck"? Geta, off Piedmont Ave.
