Excellent food

Great restaurant. Went already few times, and would like to recommend. You can bring your own wine for a €6 corkage. Food is always fresh tasting and delicious. Service is very good.

Went to Musashi on a friday afternoon for lunch with my wife and son. We had a short wait at a busy lunchtime but it was well worth it. Bento boxes are excellent value and the best we have had. Other Japanese restaurants in Dublin are twice the price and half the quality. Would highly recommend that you try this... More

This was my favourite restaurant to go to while I lived in Dublin. The food is delicious and fresh every time and the staff is friendly. The place is quite small and it might be better to reserve a table as it is quite popular. I love the atmosphere and the beautiful interior in the restaurant. I definitely recommend it!

Was brought here reluctantly by my sushi loving friends but it's a great spot. Really good value for money I spent 8.50 on the lunch deal vegetarian bento box. Really filling and nice variety of you can't decide. Very rice heavy so great if you're starving! To be honest I can't tell the difference between different types of sushi/Japanese but... More

Make sure to book a table as the place is always full and yo might not be able to get a table. The Miso soup is good, their sushis are very good and usually well presented (although I've had some exceptions). It's BYOB, and I'd recommend to bring your own wine if you enjoy good bottles. The staff is ok,... More

Well, I went to Musashi with really high expectations....Many people have recommended it to me, even going as far as saying that they had the best sushi in Dublin......I have to say, that was not the case during my visit. Being part of a rather large party of around 12 we were shown to a very small table where we... More

A regular sushi fan the place is cheap and cheerful. The sushi is good quality and best of all is that does not cost a fortune. I am a regular there and for a person sushi, a glass of wine and dessert you would be paying less than 20€ I really recommend you to book in advance as it's always... More

Musashi is one of my favourite places to get sushi in Dublin. The rice had a nice texture, slightly on the sticky side and served at a warm temperature, which helps bring out the flavour of the fish. All the pieces of sushi (norimaki, hasomaki, nigiri and sashimi) that I tried were tasty and perfectly made. The ratio of rice... More

Dined here early on a Tuesday evening, without a booking you'll be waiting in the queue that goes out the door and down the street if you turn up anytime past 6.30. Sushi starters were to die for - fish was super fresh, light and very well presented. Noodles for main were not as good - a poor selection on... More
