I have been to the capel street place a few times, great sushi! The fairly new IFSC place is not as good though, especially getting sushi delivered is terrible. I have had sushi delivered from IFSC three times now, two times it took them more than 2 and 4 (!!) hours respectively. When you call they have no clue where... More

We've been going to their Capel St restaurant quite often since we discovered it in January and it was always very good. We've tried both their sushi and their cooked meals and both are nice although my favorite are the "surprise" sushi ie the chef's selection with evocative Japanese names :-) Staff are always extremely helpful and the green tea...

More than once on my trips down Henry st have I bypassed all of the cafes, bars and restaurants to walk that little bit further to the bottom of Capel street where I have have found probably the best value and tastiest bento box lunch in all of Dublin. Each time the selection has been different and fresh and gorgeous.... More

To my mind, there's no better Japanese restaurant in Dublin City the Musashi on Capel St. My friends and I attempt to visit every couple of months, returning for the food, service and value. Whereas I'm not a fan of sushi, I have it on good authority that the fish is fresh and tasty. I'm a fan of Musashi's ramen,... More

I highly recommend this restaurant as I've visited a few times and each time I've been pleased and it is great value for money. There's a good variety of things to choose from on the menu; the food tastes like it's made with good quality ingredients and always appears freshly made, well worth the wait for it. The service is... More

I am a regular at Musashi and cannot put in words how good the food is! The sushi is better than any I've tasted by a long shot. The service is perfect 90% of the time and the plum wine is a must. Always booked out which is a shame but a great sign too!
