Fine Sushi in Worcester

We had an unexpectedly fine meal here. The fish was fresh, the maki were good. The menu isn't extensive, but all the basic sushi, sashimi and maki choices are there. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but it really lives up to the good reviews it has gotten. There is a small... read more

Drove from Boston to here to meet a friend from CT. Chose this based on other reviews. Top notch from A - Z. Service was friendly, just the right pace / tone. Atmosphere was lovely (we sat in the back patio area - fully enclosed). Price to quality was right on par. I've been to some of the "best" sushi... More

Very fresh sushi, spectacular cuts (no stringy, difficult bites), lovely presentation, excellent service, very nice ambiance. 4 in our party, all loved it! Most impressive for this gluten-free traveler is that the server knew everything on the menu that was gluten-free (and dairy-free) and even made recommendations of how to make other menu items that had gluten, gluten-free. The gluten... More

I love Baba each time I go. The fish to rice ratio is perfect and it is consistently this way. The sushi is so fresh and delicious. The service may be slow, however it's not because they are not working hard, it's because they are so busy! Will absolutely be back.

Some of the best sushi that I have ever eaten has been at Baba Sushi. Fortunately, it's very close to where I live although it would be worth the trip from just about anywhere. Great place to sit at the bar and sample the many offerings on their menu. Always delicious, always fresh and

We were in Worcester for the weekend and a coworker recommended Baba. We are close friends of a sushi chef in Buffalo NY, so to hear this was the best sushi place we were a little skeptical. We were pleasantly surprised! The fish was fresh. Presentation was beautiful and staff was very nice. We found it to be within normal... More

There is no question that the food is good. The service was as well. Was it better than the competition? Not sure. Maybe. But I am not convinced that the experience justified the premium price and probably wouldn't go back.

I have traveled far and wide but, Baba is my absolute favorite sushi restaurant ever! No need to travel- right here in Worcester you can experience sushi at it's most delicious. Any date night or special occasion will be memorable at Baba. I have even had lunch with my 9 and 10 year olds there. They tried sushi for the... More
