Nice little find!

I've been Sei Bar in Medford a handful of times in the past year and a half. I've had the Thai and Chinese food there. I haven't tried their Japanese yet. The restaurant from outside is deceiving because it looks very small, however, there is plenty of seating inside. There's a back dining... read more

My friends and I really enjoy this place for sushi and drinks. We haven't ventured beyond the appetizers to any main dishes because we enjoy the great sushi they have to offer. The service is always very courteous and quick. I also use this place during major holidays to feed my friends or get a much needed break from cooking.... More

We arrived 6:00 ish on Friday -- on our way to a concert in Boston and the traffic was lousy, so we decided to eat just outside of Boston. We live in Medford and had seen this place for several years. We were greeted by a group of people at a podium just inside the door. We were shown to... More

Had sushi almost everywhere around Boston (except those restaurants that cost $100+ per meal). This is by far my favorite, go-to place. From the perfectly cooked rice, to the perfect amount of rice, to the perfect seaweed, to the fresh, tender salmon or tuna or whatever you pick, the sushi is exactly what I like and want. Also the prices... More

I have tried many sushi restaurants in the Boston area and this is by far the best. Sushi is fresh; chef is creative. The scallop U10 appetizer is lovely. I have never had a piece of so so sahimi here, and that is not true of many other usually reliable places. They also have some other asian selections if your... More

I live nearby in Somerville, and this is my favorite sushi restaurant around. I also have them deliver sushi to my door more frequently than I’d like to admit. The staff are so friendly and fun to be around, and of course the sushi is awesome. The spicy scallop maki is my fave!

At times we can only afford the appetizers since it is a bit expensive for us. They food is first rate, fresh and lovely and delicious. A must try.

Sushi in Medford?? I never thought this would be an option in a town that is known more for sub shops, Dunkin Donuts and little Italian joints, but Sei Bar holds its own. Not only is the sushi very fresh here, but the service is also very good. The ambiance is nice, but there is no issue with being dressed... More

I'm not big on Sushi so I didn't think I'd like the Sei Bar. Much to my surprise they have WONDERFUL dishes like "Sesame Chicken" and "Salmon Jade" (my favorite!) and many more meals which are "to die for!!" Their appetizers are so different; Tuna Popcorn, Shrimp Popcorn, Seafood Tempura - everything I've ordered at this place has been a... More

The setting/atmosphere has been greatly improved with their expansion. The service is strange/not in sync and the food is medium good.
