Goan Fish Curry
Sea Bass kabobs
Chola Bhatura

You will not be disappointed. Their fish is flavorful, moist, and no fishy smell. The preparation is number. It bests all the high priced Indian restaurants in the bay area, hands down.
Berkeley Thai Chiam (3 star)
University Ave.
Green curry Chicken
Basil chicken
Pad Thai
This had been my most favorite Thai restaurant since I discovered Thai while doing undergrad at Berkeley. However, the last couple of times I went there, the food all seemed to have the same taste, nothing distinctive.
Berkeley Thai Siam Cuisine (4 1/2  stars)
1181 University Ave.
Berkeley, CA 94702
(510) 548-3278
Siam Basil Chicken
Ginger Chicken
Went there for lunch on 12/19/05. Clean, spacious restaurant. Food was delivered hot, and looked and tasted fresh, clean and vibrant. the Siam Basil Chicken was ordered medium hot, and was the favorite dish. I'd probably order it hot next time. This is a better place than Chiam if you have a large party.
Berkeley Mexican Juan's Place (1 star)
941Carleton St.
Berkeley, CA
(510) 845-6909
Nothing to recommend Went there in September 2005, because we were looking for a place that could accommodate 18 people, and I remember this place being popular while an undergrad at CAL. What a let down. The only thing the place offered was quantity. The food had no flavor.
Berkeley Mexican Mario's La Fiesta (3 star)

Castro Valley Pizza Pyzano's Pizzeria (4 star)

Castro Valley, CA 94552
(510) 881-8878
Thin crust with sausage. Show  the owner compete on the Food Network Show. These guys have won tons of awards, I've tried it twice now. the first time I ordered the thin crust with sausage and I thought it was above average. The second time we ordered the regular crust with chicken and artichokes, it was a bit bland. However the crust was good. I still prefer, Zackery's and Anitca over Pyzano's.
