I was very pleasantly surprised. The reviews looked pretty good and I was in the mood for Japanese. The reviews do not do Inaka justice. I had a great Tempura dish, salad with a refreshing ginger dressing and received very personal service. The ambiance is simple and pleasant. Sushi Bar as you enter (was not in the mood for sushi...

When we go for a dinner and a movie, we always go to Inaka. Service is fast, the staff recognizes regulars, the wait persons are happy to describe the dishes. There is a small sushi bar and a large sushi menu. The menu has pictures of the food and this is great for newcomers. We have loved all the meals... More

This is totally one of my favorite Places in the world. They have such a variety and such a good quality I always go as much as I can. In the Menu they have all the Pictures of the plates which makes it super simple to know what you are eating. For starters, I always have the Miso soup or... More

Friendly staff, easy parking, convenient location near I-495. Good selection of Japanese and Korean food. Better than Japanese restaurants in North Andover.

First of all, the sign on the building says "Sushi Inaka", in case you are looking for it. The menu is a mix of Japanese and Korean things. We are not actually sushi-eaters, but my husband loves the "kopdol bibimbap" (Korean hotpot), which is gluten-free, and I love the noodle stir fries. We go all the time. The place is... More

I have visited this place with two of colleagues for lunch. I have ordered the hot-stone bibimbap with tofu, which is quite delicious. The kimchi side that we have ordered is quite small in portion for its price tag, and is not tasty at all. The restaurant is quite spacious, and there are no issues with parking. Overall, I will...

I've never connected sushi and Lawrence MA. Owned by a Korean couple, the restaurant is located near the highway in a small and nice strip mall, next to Denny's. Inside, the place is very clean with nice furniture and decorations. We were a large group, 15 people and ordered from the sushi menu as well as traditional Korean meals. The... More

Tried Sushi without the expert guidance of friends and we made out just fine. The owner helped us choose things that we would like and also try things we had not attempted in the past. I was with my 15 year old niece and we both enjoyed the experience and the adventure. The server was quite helpful. We went for... More

We decided to swing into Inaka before we went to a most one night. We were pleasantly surprised! While the decor and interior aren't much to look at, the sushi was delicious (and we are very picky). The seafood was fresh, the tempura was served hot and crunchy, the tofu was cooked just right, the rice was the perfect stickiness.... More
