Definitely a must, the mains are great but I have to say that the sushi pieces are awesome. I definitely would recommend the salmon ones. Amazing. Also the staff offers you a cup of green tea before serving which is very nice, the only thing is that always try to book a table with anticipation because it's a very small... More

This is such a good restaurant! The main meals are sadly disappointing which is why I didn't give it 5 stars but the sushi, gyoza and tempura are amazing. You could spend a fortune on sushi in dublin which is why this place is so popular- the prices are brilliant. It's between 5 and 7 euro for a sushi roll... More

Nice small japanese resturant. Be sure to book though. Good prices and good service. Food is good but sashimi could be better. Defo good on a modest budget

I've been to Musashi twice now. The first time earlier this year and the review that I gave on that visit was not favourable. However, upon giving the place another shot I felt compelled to post a second review in light of the fantastic food I enjoyed. Where as the previous time I had simply ordered one large platter of...

Admittedly the location is not the best. Located on Capel Street a friend introduced me to this hidden place. Make a reservation as the place is tiny and always packed. The service is inpeckable, not found often in Dublin. The food is delicous, with fresh ingredients and freshly prepared. A wide variety of sushi and noodle and rice dishes are... More

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.
