Party Sushi is descent sushi -- not the best, but certainly reasonable prices. The atmosphere is nothing to write about -- not a place you go for a nice dinner. But, still enjoyed my food.

I totally disagree with people saying that they have small portions (really, how much larger are they expecting their roles to be? It is sushi, not a burrito!!).

The food is tasty and inexpensive. It's sad that people judge them from maybe one unique experience. I have been consistently eating there at least once a week, and every other weekend for almost a year and have no complaints and it is absolutely worth the 20 minutes drive to get there.

The manager, Carole is a sweetheart, the chefs very friendly.

They are very accepting and appreciate positive and constructive criticism.

Pros: Tasty and inexpensive sushi!

The sushi is very cheap and i like to go here often. The waitress who normally works there is so nice, but when it gets busy she gets really stressed out and tends to serve the wrong tables first. Last time i was there it took about 1.5 hours to get my food and leave..to bring the food it took the longest. It is a good place to go if they aren't busy. Its also very loud if its busy since the tables are very close to one another. Once i was there when a homeless man came in and went up to a table and started picking up peoples food. The owners and people who worked there were too shy to tell him to leave, and he smelt very bad. it ruined my meal to have a man smelling like urine walking around and touching peoples food, not to mention swearing and saying bad things to a child. I was almost offended that the staff would not tell him to leave, or would not even replace or say sorry to the table whose food got touched. very odd situation! besides that its been good. my favorite place is Man Puku on college avenue. Also cheap, and very good! best for to go.

Pros: cheap food, good food

Cons: pick the wrong day and it can be very slow!

Note: I've never dined in, so can't comment on the service. What follows is a review of the food itself.

Too many people I know have dismissed this place because it looks and is cheap. Don't let Party Sushi's low prices and kitsch decor deceive you. The fish here is top quality--fresh and delicious. And in the end, this is the most important factor for making excellent sushi, especially nigiri. The dizzying selection of rolls range from standard to bizarre (pickles and jalapeno; eel and strawberry; tuna and mozzarella), and heavily features cream cheese, avocado, and mayo (make sure to specify if you don't want mayo in your roll). There's so much variety that you should be able to find a roll that matches your palate. The flower roll (fresh salmon, avocado, tuna, tobiko) is superb and is a meal in and of itself. Despite the high quality of the food, the prices are well below the sushi average. So, if you are a discriminating sushi fanatic with a thin wallet, Party Sushi is where the party's at.

Pros: fresh fish. CHEAP!

Cons: some of the rolls are downright bizarre; use too much mayo

Ah, finally an affordable sushi place with that uses fresh fish and ingredients. For my first meal at Party I had a spicy tuna and avocado roll with a bottle of cold saki, which rung me up around 10 dollars. The roll was big with plenty of fresh avocado and sauce to spice things up. The saki was good and cheap with 14% alcohol, and it made me a little tight, which was what I was looking for. Overall, a great sushi experience!

Unfortunately, Party Sushi isn't a cause for celebration. While they have some variety in their menu (yay!), their sushi portions leave a lot to be desired (boo) -- and it's not as if the prices are cheap enough to make up for it. Now add in the goofy, dusty inflatables that "decorate" the place (circa "college dorm room"). Put plainly: the food is stingy; the environment is dingy-- so seek sushi ecstasy elsewhere.

PROS: Friendly service, variety in menu
CONS: Small portions, dingy environment

Pros: yummy, cheap

Cons: bad service

We came in with a larger party, ordered and ended up waiting almost an hour before we asked a server about our food. Turns out they forgot to place our order and gave us the biggest hassle over it. Terrible service, it's not worth the cheap food to go.

If you're on a tight budget but craving sushi...this is definitely the place to go! Although obviously not as tasty as all the other highly rated sushi restaurants, very very well worth it for the price that you pay. We ordered 5 rolls and a beer and it came out to less than $25 plus tip!! Try the Berkeley Dynamite rolls!!! But beware of the cheesy and tacky decor....just think about how cheap you're going to be paying for your dinner!
