The sushi was so sublime I don't know what to call anything I had eaten before. The drinks I ordered complimented the food beautifully. I ate at the sushi bar and had no issues with space or comfort and the chef was extremely nice and friendly. The price, while expensive, seemed nominally fair. The only problem I had was entering the address into the GPS and not the name of the restaurant and ended up on Washington Street, Dorchester. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for sushi.

Great, really fresh, well-prepared sushi, and excellent table service. On the fancy side - expect a complete, multi-hour meal for dinner. Expensive - nigiri $6-10 per piece, sashimi $10-14 for two pieces. Will definitely go back. Try the ankimo!

Went there with my friend family who visited from west coast purely based on high internet ratings and boy, I felt ashamed. Warm dishes we had were absolutely the worst you would expect. Sushi dishes were not too bad but mediocre at best. Couldn't believe this place is considered as one of better restaurants in Boston.

Not somewhere you'd likely go every weekend but for special occasions it is worth the splurge. Excellent original sushi dishes and other Japanese dishes all with excellent service.

Fish was fresh, well prepared, and creatively presented. Seasoning and marinades were fun and adventurous, and complimented the fish nicely. Fantastic fish, fantastic experience. Atmosphere was slightly dark, but very enjoyable (and this added to some of the lit or flaming presentations)

Sorry is the state of dining in Boston if this considered tops. It's not even good as a sushi restaurant! True sushi-- the kind that comes from Japan -- is all about balance and quality, plus subtlety. That's right, you're supposed to detect flavors, texture and temperatures (cool fish, warm, properly prepared rice). Not so here on any count. I'm sorry to say, but all these "best sushi ever" pronouncements reflect a lack of experience.
