fun, flavorful and unusual sushi place

I love the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant, first of all. It is fun and stylish. Then the food is also great -- not just your usual sushi fare, but some menu items I haven't seen elsewhere, including full meals with salmon and some yummy appetizers. The waitstaff is friendly as well. My... read more

We gave Sushi 29 another chance and it will likely be the last time we go there. The wait staff was slow and uninformed. They couldn't tell us about the duck and couldn't be bothered to check with the kitchen. The portions were very small and the price was quite high. They goofed on the order as well. That is... More

Ordered potstickers first, they were just average, nothing special. The sushi was good. Get the crispy California roll, it is amazing. Really liked the double salmon roll, very fresh. I didn't like the spicy tuna roll at all, it was really fishy.

I visit from England to stay with family quite often and have always used the great sushi bar nearby! I now have a really hard decision to make next time as to which one to visit, both are great restaurants. My favourite dish was the Golden Gate Sushi which was so good we ordered another! Godzilla Roll is worth a... More

We stopped here after an Ohio State - Berkeley Football Game....the Japanese restaurant we used to go to had changed owners and was no longer Japanese - so we stopped here instead. The food was very good - very fresh sashimi, excellent salad, good appetizers, saki, and green tea ice cream for dessert. Nice food - yummy and fresh. Not... More

A recent accident has temporarily closed the locally appreciated (if not beloved) Sushi 29. An automobile failed to stop outside and came crashing into the restaurant a short time ago. This is a loss to everyone, most seriously to the family that owns and runs Sushi 29, but also to the driver and of course to the neighborhood, too. One... More

We've eaten here about five times. The sushi is outstanding. It has become my favorite Japanese restaurant, and I've lived here 20 years. Sometimes I order the chirashi. One clue is that serve real sisho leaves, not that green plastic that ordinary sushi places use. Last night we had nigiri and it was great, large portions of fish with the... More
