Reviews for Kiraku

Probably my favorite Japanese restaurant in the bay area!!! I would definitely come here more if I lived closer. Quality is great. If you're like me who likes to try different bites of everything on the menu, then this is the place. I'm a fan of restaurants who offer tapas. So far, everything I have ordered off the menu is delicious. They do have a seasonal menu so if you're the type to look at the menu ahead of time and write down what you want to order...just know that the full review

For this price, definitely best Japanese food I've had in the East bay. Simmered beef and scallion pancakes, wagyu beef skewers, bluefin tuna with eggplant, corn tempura with green tea salt, and a carafe of crisp, juicy sake all for $60. Wait time was 90 min so plan ahead.

Food was delicious. The ikura, uni, and toro in the deluxe Kaisen box stood out - all were fresh and flavorful. Other dishes that stood out were the A5 beef skewer, beef cheek skewer, and sweet potato brulee. However, as others have mentioned, don't think the price you pay is justifiable. There are other sushi restaurants in the bay area where you can get more bang for your buck. If I were to rate this place strictly on the food you get vs. the price you pay, I'd give it a full review
