The sushi was very yummy and the pricing was great! For 3 sushi rolls it only cost $12 with the lunch special. The one down side was the place was a little small and very cramped.

We found the restaurant on my Garmin GPS and it stunned us. Simple outside, just south of true China town where we were offered pigs intestines and tongue, this place had a western Chinese feel, nice decor and THE BEST SALMON SUSHI I have ever...More

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest
your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the

Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide
