    The spicy tuna rolls here are to die for. And I don't even usually like sushi. I would eat this for dinner every day if I could.

    Crunchy maki, spicy yellowtail and saki papaya are delicious.

    if you're with a group, it might be worth the extra wait for a booth. they're kinda fun, with sliding doors and paper lanterns &c

    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

    Ask for the off menu Bukkake roll. It's like a party in your mouth!

    My favorite makis are: Spicy Tuna, Ebi Mango, Baked Salmon, Fugakyu Maki & Shrimp Tempura.. but their all amazing! The sushi is very fresh and makes an unforgettable impression on your palette.

    Seaweed Salad, Toro Sashimi, BJ maki, Louisiana Maki. Cucumber Saketini followed by a glass of Oroya with the sushi. Green Tea Tempura and a Truffeltini for dessert. You're welcome.

    The King Crab Salad appetizer is to die for!

    All front desk staff is very arrogant. I feel uncomfortable for this attitude. They are wearing suits but they treat customers as the criminals.

    The deep fried snow crab tastes like an expensive fish stick. Do not blow the $7 on them.

    Smoked salmon mango maki and the Louisiana maki are sooo good

    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.

  • Benjamin S.

    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. 😊🍣

    Some of the best sushi in the Boston area

    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.

    Caterpillar roll is delicious and love the banana dessert

    Karen Frascona · August 16, 2014

    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.

    Jaim · December 26, 2013
  • Jacob C.

    Don't try to order more then 2 mai tai's. They no "likey" even with a $650+ bill.
