This is my favorite sushi place in Boston area, and have been going back consistently for about 5 years now. Love their specialty maki rolls, specially the Fujisan Maki. The quality is always great and generously portioned. Very friendly staff as well.

This place is very good and simple. Not much to the decor and a lack of air conditioning but the food is fresh and well prepared. They give you a card and pencil where you put down quantities of what you want. I especially like the shumai. The price per piece of sushi is much less than usual. Very good... More

We love to stop here on our way to an evening game at Fenway, spend $25 for the two of us to eat dinner, and hit the park full and happy. Don't... More

I've eaten and taken away here many times over sevveral years and the quality of the fish and cuts has consistently been among the best I've had outside Japan. It's a not an attractive place, nor are the staff particularly friendly, but if you're after quality, you won't be disappointed. For value for money this beats every Nobu experience I've... More

I've been in sushi restaurants in Japan, London and New York, and I must say that this is where I've found the most fresh and flavory fish, specially the sashimi (salmon, mackerel, sea urchin, yellowtail and white tuna being my favorites). They come in big, succulent pieces, and at a very affordable price. Also the maki special rolls are yummy,... More

Raw fish is very fresh and Special rolls are different. You must try it if you love japanese food. Staff are very friendly. Small place with a Shushi bar.
