What a great restaurant! I had the best sushi I've had in a long time. The Ebi Mango Maki and Alligator Maki where my favorite. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very well decorated interior and plenty of room to eat. Very good variety of beer, wine and saki. Owner knows how to make his customers happy. Thanks for a great eating experience.
BEST SUSHI – Best Sushi in Town. Always fresh!! Staff also very friendly!!
Incredible Food and Atmosphere – My husband took me out to dinner for my birthday on 10/19. I checked through the internet for this restaurant. I made a great choice. We ordered Sashimi, which my husband said was the best grade of fish he has ever tasted, it was so fresh. The Beef Negima and Vegetable/Shrimp Tempura were superb. The Tempura was cooked at the correct temperature so that after taking it home, it was not soggy with oil. The presentation and service were impeccable. The waiter was personable, cordial and was not condescending when questions were asked. This is a great pick, and which you won't be disappointed in. The menu has something for everyone, and is printed so that you can understand exactly what ingredients are used, which is great for any first timers.
Great place for dinner – I tried New Ginza after the fabulous reviews I read, and I was not disppointed! The food is delicious, be it sashimi, maki rolls, california rolls, noodles, everything. I've dined there 4 times so far and have never made a reservation and never really needed to. We were always seated pretty quickly, I think the longest wait I had was 10 minutes. The staff is very curteous, and very attentive. I've only been there on Thursday-Saturday night, and our food was always fresh. I think this place is moderately priced, but worth it for the freshness, selection, staff attitude, and general atmosphere and dinner experience. The tables generally seat 2-4, and about 15 seats are available at the sushi bar.
Good food – New Ginza is a cute place - nice atmosphere. The sushi is very good and the waitstaff are attentive. They have a good selection of maki rolls. I think they are a little overpriced, but the quality is very good.
Great food, the very best Sushi Chefs, and the wait staff is outstanding. At the New Ginsa, I have never seen the bottom of my tea cup.
Best Japanese Restaurant in town!! – I think a mistake was made from the previous post. The waitresses in New Ginza NEVER wear kimonos. They wear white shirt, tie, and black pants all the time since the very beginning. rocca44 must have been to a wrong place and it may be the Ginza at Brookline or China Town. The waitresses of these two restaurants WEAR kimonos! The New Ginza (in Watertown) is different from them and that?s why they called themselves New Ginza. My wife and I are regular customers of this restaurant and we found that it is one of the best Japanese restaurants in town and in term of service they are the best I think. We always go there for lunch (we just had lunch there today!) and we found the waitresses are all very nice and friendly. They are always there to serve you whenever you need them. I also notice that they always check and refill your cup of tea or water before it becomes empty. Is it great service or what! Foods are always fresh and delicious! Highly recommended!!
Very Disappointed! – I went to this place after hearing all the great reviews, but was very disappointed. First of all, the place smelled as I entered with my friends (we all noticed it). The service was not impressive and was very slow. The waitresses wear kimonos, however instead of the outfit they should focus on providing prompt service. Be aware of the daily sushi specials that was recommended to us, and was not on the menu: we forgot to ask the price so we had the suprise waiting when the bill came! These specials were 3x the price of the sushi on the menu, but that is nothing. It was simply not worth it. Everything was way tooo salty. I sadly have to say that I will NOT revisit this place.
best sushi in newton/watertown – this place is fantastic. great ambiance, delicious and fresh food, fast service (even though the place is always hopping) and friendly staff. i am called by name whenever walk through the door (they got it off my credit card and always remember me!) and am always brought the low sodium soy sauce (i requested one time) and they ask if i would like my usual (and rattle off my order) it is either creepy or wonderful :) i never have a bad experience at new ginza. i always hear ginza in brookline hyped and i would definitely choose new ginza over that place. you won't be sorry!
good sushi, lovely atmosphere. – i love all the blond woods and friendly waiters. you don't have to head into the city for sushi this good! great lunch specials.
