Rumor is that the main chef is leaving. That would be such a crying shame for New Ginza because he is what makes this place really sing! The weekend bento box is a joy to eat. A huge box, including soup and ice cream, is a steal at $20. On weeknights, I love to eat the duck special dish. Strongly... More

This is by far my favorite Japanese restaurant in the Boston area. It is well worth the trip! The staff is warm and friendly. The atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing. The Ramen Bowl (which is a weekend special) is decked out with pork, meat crumbles, hard boiled egg, veggies, etc etc etc. It is a truly unique dish. Whenever I... More

I dined with my parents and daughter Sunday night. My friends and I used to come here a lot but our favorite manger left and we missed him so much, we were reluctant to visit. But we've eaten here on occasion, nonetheless, because it's so darned good. Sunday we ordered the Gyoza and Shumai (both pan-fried--otherwise they're soggy). The shumai... More

This is our favorite "neighborhood" sushi place. You can't compare it to the high-end places like OYa or Oishii, but as a regular "go to" place, we love it. The rolls are perfectly made with not-too-much, not-too-little rice. Fish is fresh and our kids love the Udon noodle soups. Our favorite appetizer is the HOKKAIYAKI with Scallops...so YUM!

Kids and I found this place on trip advisor. We were not disappointed We were served promptly, efficiently and professionally. The food was fresh and we loved. Poking on the stone slab. We found 1 plate of steak can feed an army so be mindful of such. 1 plate could have easily fed 3 of us. Although we cooked our... More

I went here for lunch with a bunch of coworkers and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious bento box- a ton of food but totally worth it to try a bunch of different food. Everyone else enjoyed their sushi and basic meals.

Family friendly atmosphere. They will make special chopsticks for your little ones. Sushi quality and price is ok, there are better places in Boston or Brookline. My kids however go gaga for this place. Love the aquarium with the "Nemo" and also grilling salmon on a hot stone.

Tired of Super Fusion I have been going here instead. A little more expensive and worth every penny. Try the very generous and creative bento on Sundays.

Food is outstanding . . .fresh, flavorful, and extensive menu. Low key vibe, good service, can hang out at the restaurant as long as you want. . . Never feel rushed.

I work nearby and love coming here for lunch. The restaurant is pleasant inside with good lighting, and a menu that is perfect for me. At lunch you pay around $10 for salad, soup, and an entree--I always get the salmon teriyaki, which is delicious and served with some (soba) noodles, steamed rice, and excellent vegetables. It is a healthy... More
