Uzen is a great neighborhood sushi place. They specialize in traditional sushi (read: don't ask for a flying drunken fiery dragon roll), but their fish can't be beat. Good miso soup and salad too. (fyi, free with an order of 3 or more rolls/nigiri.) Very well priced and much better than the other sushi places in the neighborhood!
P.S. Don't bother with the other items from kitchen. None of the cooked entrees we've ordered have really impressed.
Uzen is a great little sushi place. I had some very tasty sushi, and my spouse had chicken teryaki. The sushi was great - tasty, smooth, yummy.
I like the spare, industrial decor. When we were there they had some light trip-hop playing. Service is attentive, it's a small place, it should be. Overall, a great neighborhood sushi place that's hip, fun and very tasty.
Uzen is a small, trendily-decorated restaurant on the main Rockridge high street. They have a separate sushi menu, changing daily specials and regular menu as well as a sake menu. Quality and selection are terrific, fish cuts are succulent and sizeable. This is the best place to go for sushi in Berkeley (introduced to me several times by Japanese friends, to boot!).
