One of my favorite Bay Area sushi joints 9/28/2005

Uzen does have a great atmosphere. It has the cozy feel of a neighborhood place, but they take care of the details - nice stoneware, decent (and often attractive) service - everything is quite aesthetically pleasing. The atmosphere helps one to overlook the prices, which are a bit on the high end for a neighborhood sushi joint. That said, we've never had a bad meal there on probably about a dozen tries. The fish is always impeccably fresh and often generously cut. In my opinion, the best value at the restaurant is the scallop/salmon sashimi salad, which we order and highly enjoy every time. more

Fab Sushi 8/15/2005

I like this spot. It's cozy. Downright small, really. The service is quick and the tuna is FRESH. In the literal sense and in the hip-hop sense. I think. Anyway, the sushi chef seems possibly a tad crazy. In a good way. Either that or he thinks all the guests speak Japanese and want to hear it LOUD. It's cool, though, because he rolls a mean tekka maki so I can't complain. And I do love the soba noodles. They come with tempura that is just right. The veggies are flavorful and the sauce tasty. The ambience of the restaurant is pretty hip. The shape is funky and the lighting makes for a lovely evening out. more
