    Sushi is a bit better than average but not amazing; prices are high

    Crunchy maki was the best, but everything we had was fresh and delicious

    Tummy not feeling well after eating the food there. Not authentic ;(

    Maki combo is a good deal for 3 rolls, miso soup and a salad.

    The Spider Roll is a wonderful classic here — along with the Volcano Roll and Ladybug Roll

    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.

    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.

    Kelsey Schur · August 19, 2014

    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!

  • Seong Hyun H.

    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.

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

    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

    The smoked salmon mango maki is great! Order anything with spicy mayo or tempura. The BJ maki has everything you want (tho not healthy). Get hot sake!
