Almost like Tokyo – The only place near Boston that comes close to what sushi is like in Japan. Not the fanciest, but honest authentic sushi. Lots of special fish that other places don't bother to track down, and Chef Junji cures his own salmon and mackrel (saba). Also the only place around here where the chirashi is a true delight, not just a place to ditch weird shaped pieces of fish. I also love the oshi-zushi (pressed sushi) with fish eggs in the rice. The American style sushi rolls are good, but the more traditional stuff is where this place shines.
Not the best I have had – I have ordered sushi here a few times....its is literally about 5 min down the street, from my house, so I really want it to be good, so I can eat sushi more! But, it is just average. Among other things, I got a shrimp tempura roll (amateur sushi , i know) and there was nothing but rice and shrimp. Usually it comes with some spicy mayo or sauce, but here it was very bland. Its also hard for me to talk my husband into sushi for dinner if they don't have non-sushi dishes. He ordered a chicken dish, and was a little disappointed when he got fried chicken fingers and white rice. There is better sushi in the area. If it wasn't so convienient, I probably wouldn't come here at all.
Great little sushi joint – reasonably priced and great service. Both sushi bar and private seating available.
