I've had high expectations after some reviews and got a bit disappointed. Asked sushi for starter what was good and a bento box as main: the curried beef had a way too much cumin, so I couldn't taste nothing else. The chicken/veggies broth was weird (or maybe I was just feeling the cumin taste yet). The price for bento box... More

Have been here a number of times over the past two years. The food is consistently excellent and the portion sizes are generous. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Seating is limited so it can be difficult to get a table without booking. Does not have an alcohol license but you can bring your own bottle of wine. For sushi lovers... More

We tried both locations of Musashi The Capel Street location is small and cozy and the Custom House Square location a little bigger and better able to accommodate groups but food is awesome at both. Prices are reasonable and portions are good sized. Highly recommended.

I wanted to eat something before heading to the cinema and I wandered through Capel St. to find Musashi restaurant which was conveniently near the Jervis Luas stop. I was greeted with warm and friendly smiles and a bustling of activity. They were busy that day, but service was excellent, as I was able to get my food with only... More

Came upon this place yesterday when going down Caple Street. Near Bridge. Fantastic value for lunch at only 8 euro for main course. Sushi at 6 euro for 8 pieces is fantastic value also. Lunch between 12 and 5 every day. Well worth a visit if in the area. Staff and service brilliant.

Located in the centre of (north side) Dublin, it really is the best spot for Japanese cuisine! I've never had sushi and tempura made with such fresh ingredients! Their main dishes are also delicious, flavourful and plentiful. It always has a nice atmosphere and is always teeming with people so if you want to try it I'd recommend booking in... More

My soup was very good but everything else was average. It was right by the first (and last) Hop-On Hop-Off stop in Dublin.

This place is a gem. Sushi is traditional, beautifully fresh, with a varied selection. Prices are very competitive, and this place is jammed every lunchtime (deservedly so). Service is also excellent. Highly recommend a visit.

Eating here was a delightful experience. Excellent sushi served with a smile. Service is a well oiled machine and of high standard. Against better judgement we also took a desert which was a mistake. Probably not by their own cooking (hope not). So leave it at the Japanese food only and you will enjoy it AND at very reasonable prices!
