    They no longer accept exchange requests. I many times requested to exchange tuna for salmon on my mini kaiseki dinner set but they ignored and do not honor such requests... but still good sushi.

    Miso soup was spot on and the sushi is certainly above par. The seating arrangement is a little underwhelming but the service more than makes up for it. 😊🍣

    Get a few rolls each with friends and try them all. Also, they are excellent about allergies and have items containing shellfish clearly marked as such on their menu.

    Mini kaiseki is nice and filling. Donburi was microwaved I think? It was a bit mushy. Fresh salmon and tuna. Quick delivery.

    Very place for sushi and very crowded during the weeknights and weekends. Also, it's VERY EXPENSIVE so watch out how much you eat! Decent selection of saki, too, though pricey as well!

    A bit expensive, but totally worth it. I love unagi don and mini kaiseki. Mango smoothie is also good.

    Very accommodating to food allergies. 3 vegans had no trouble funding good food here. Just tell them your food allergy/dietary preference and they will look out for you!

    Miso yaki and chawanmushi here aren't bad. Dragon roll was filled with sweet potato which was weird.. Everything else is just gourmet priced for below average jap food.

    Voted "Best Japanese Restaurant" by @BostonPhoenix readers in 2012! To really impress your date, shell out for the kobe beef sashimi. Nothing says love like actual gold garnish on an appetizer. Read more
