Best sushi bar in the East Bay
What is the best sushi bar in the east bay? I searched on Yelp and Benihanas came up. I put my phone down and sobbed.

Yume is fantastic, but please make sure you are familiar with their rules before going. They will not take parties of more than 2 - they are very strict about this. Three seatings a 5, 7 and 9. If you get there at 5, they will give you a reservation for a later seating the same day. If you get there much after opening, it may be full for the day.
We have not braved Yume yet, but will. I have had some delicious meals at Kirala - really should sit at the bar. It gets loud and busy, but I have had incredibly fresh fish here.
Some adjacent diners at a favorite restaurant recently recommended Kiku Sushi in Berkeley. It was very good. Small place. Simple with a few new-to-me offerings. We've only tried the omokase.
Sushi Sho is on our must try list now.
