Good sushi

We come here on every visit to the Andover area. Love Japanese and this is a good place to go if you are looking for some. Quality is good, price is reasonable all in all nice to come back to.

I've only had a handful of dishes at Inaka but what I've had has been consistently good, tho a bit pricey. Their miso and udon noodle soups and oshitashi are great. Sushi is good but nothing special. Service is always decent.

Dinner was excellent as always, especially the bibimbap, which is served in a hot stone bowl. They also have great sushi and udon noodle dishes.

I'm a sushi snob. I've had the best and I've had the worst. Inaka in Lawrence is somewhere in the middle. I had the sushi regular combo which was 18.95. In other places this would have been $3 cheaper. The rice was a bit dry, and the cuts of sushi looked like they were done in haste rather than skill.... More

I love their dumplin soup! My only complain is that they only accept cash for purchases under $10. Which is a bit of a pain because the soup is only $8 and I ussually dont carry cash!

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.
