Kirala: Restaurant Info 23 July,2015Check, Please! Bay Area

  • Steve

    Kirala has the best unagi nigiri I’ve had just about anywhere.

    If you want to avoid the dinner wait on the weekend, get there right when they open (or a little before). There may already be a line waiting, but you’ll get seated sooner. I prefer a seat at the sushi bar, that way you can ask the chef what is particularly good or fresh.
