Creative, extremely fresh sushi

Top quality ingredients. Been coming here for some time. It is very easy to miss its tiny door on the outside of the mall next Bloomingdales. The manager & staff are so friendly and open to accommodating requests. Use the tablet to check out all their creative specials.

Daikanyama is our go-to restaurant, by far the best Japanese restaurant in the Boston area. The food is outstanding, specials imaginative, presentation beautiful, service excellent, the room itself is lovely. We love Daikanyama for lunch, as well as dinner; on our own, or with friends or the entire family. By now we've been there dozens of times, and find it... More

Daikanyama is really excellent. Higher quality food and more authentic Japanese presentation that other Japanese restaurants in the vicinity. Surprising location inside Bloomingdale's in Chestnut Hill mall, but a pleasant surprise. Worth many return visits

We popped in for lunch on a very rainy weekday afternoon and sat at the sushi bar. We were given a filthy tablet on which to view pictures of the food - that was off putting in and of itself, but we ordered and I was very careful to explain that I was sensitive to some of the heat so... More

The decor is sleek and fitting for a high-end mall, but the service is mediocre and the food quality is uneven. For instance, on my second visit tonight I ordered the agedashi tofu, which was good the first time I came, but this time the tofu was old or of the wrong texture and the dish had been improperly fried....

My mother, brother, and I ate here on a quiet Sunday evening while most folks were tuning into the Pats game. So the restaurant was quiet and not too busy. I compliment the restaurant on its interesting take on sushi and I think the quality of the fish was quite good, but not outstanding. It was nice to try some... More

Daikanyama sits quietly in a corner of Bloomingdales in Newton, MA. Its decor is modern, elegant, and minimalist. The venue feels like a shrine or temple more than it does a restaurant, and would therefore not recommend bringing children Service is prompt and subtle. The specials are presented to you in a tablet. The regular menu was expansive and we... More
