Reviews for Kiraku

Great spot for dinner and conversation. Wide selection of new and familiar dishes. Do not be scared by the long wait list, it goes by quick (and staff does ask you to clear the table once finished). The sashimi was so fresh but don't be afraid to order new things! Great Japanese spot! Also the grapefruit Gelato at the end was just so light.

Kiraku is a popular izakaya style restaurant south of Berkeley's campus. There is a wide selection of many dishes that are all delicious. They have every type of Japanese food that you can want. The chef is super awesome, accommodating dietary restrictions and the staff do an excellent job making sure every table is doing well.

Overall, everything tasted great; the raw fish was fresh. I loved the agedashi tofu and the somen noodles. The ramen also stood out as it was different--the broth was light and refreshing. The only thing I didn't like was the grilled rice ball; it was bland and it wasn't crispy enough. I wouldn't order it again.
