Hip atmosphere, definitely not your run of the mill Asian place. Food is pricier than a basic Japanese ramen place, but you don't get the quantities of meat or goodies that we've come to expect for our cash. My husband ordered a roast pork ramen but got only one slice of pork. I ordered plain ramen with an order of... More

I ordered the Seasons Bento Chicken...I only ate a few pieces of the chicken because the texture was off-putting. The rest was ordinary. Although I am in the area now every week, I won't be back. There are many options for lunch in downtown Berkeley.

Just dropped in for a quick sushi snack and Sapporo on a Saturday afternoon. Not all sushi is on the menu and requested yellowtail which was good.

Popped into 'Seasons of Japan' for a quick dinner and ordered their dumplings and Sashimi Bento. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. It is not somewhere offering formal dining and it feels more like a noodle bar or fast food restaurant. However as a solo traveller I really appreciated the informal and relaxed dining and there was... More

Seasons of Japan is one of the better Japanese eateries I have been to in Berkeley. Located near the Bart station it has a small but diverse menu and is one of the places that vegetarians can find a decent selection of options.

I had a large bowl of Ramen Noodles they were really good except the usual egg on top and some of the garnishes were missing. Though at the price at $8.60 one can't complain. The broth was tasty and the noodles cooked just right.

Located on Shattuck Ave. in Downtown Berkeley. The restaurant has somewhat of a fast-food atmosphere, partly due to the fact, that one orders the food at the counter and then waits for the number to be called out. During slow times, the ordered food is brought to the table though. The Chicken Breast / Teriyaki chicken / Weekend Sushi Set... More

DO NOT ORDER ONLINE. I ordered dinner for 2 online, and right as I was leaving to pick it up they called to say that they closed early and would refund my purchase. One month later, no refund, no response from the restaurant. In general, it's essentially americanized fast food, so you can't expect much. For the prices it's not... More

Seasons of Japan has a great location right in Downtown Berkeley. It's a great quick option for any sort of chicken, beef, or shrimp bowl and many types of rolls. Reasonable pricing and great rewards program! 1 point for every dollar spent!
