Reviews for Ippuku

Highly overrated. High prices and very small portions. In Tokyo, there are better places for half these prices. I'm Japanese, and grew up in Europe and Japan. This place was okay for awhile, but success has gone to their heads. I heard the bartender in the front bragging to his friends (in Japanese) that: "I was hired because I'm good-looking, and it brings in the women". Haha....no.

Ippuku is one of the best spots in the Bay for Japanese food, and one of the best spots in downtown Berkeley if you’re looking for a nice, special occasion dinner. The bartender is super knowledgeable about sake, so nerd out.The yakatori is what they’re known for. Don’t miss out on the Tsukune.
