Never Less than Stellar

I have visited this restaurant many times over the last 5 or more years and every time has been excellent. The restaurant is always packed so we are sure to make reservations. The service and quality of food are truly 5* in the city of Worcester if not all of central MA. I have heard there are a... read more

First off, the good. the sushi is really quite good. Probably the best in the area. Significant portions and high quality. The service is always fantastic. Prompt, helpful, knowledgeable. There are about 4 good beers on tap. Not bad. The cocktails, however are great! And reasonably priced. Now, the negatives. The inside is very cramped. I've been here a few... More

I have been going with a friend for a few years and have never had a bad meal. The server is always suggesting the specialty of the day (note those are offered on week days and not weekends). The mai tais are very good - you can taste the alcohol not just the juices. Must try sushi are: Volcano; peacock... More

Some people will complain about anything. This was a great find. My wife and I went here in the middle of a Snow Storm on Valentine's Day. While the front part is busy and packed, the tables in the back are excellent and romantic. And speaking of excellent, everything we had was excellent...best I have had in this region. I'm... More

The sushi was very fresh, if a little sweet for my taste. The calamari tempura was delicious! I would come back again.

The tables were cramped together. The restaurant was so poorly lighted, we could barely read the menu. The noise level was so high, I could barely hear my husband when he spoke. And the food wasn't even anything special. My vegetable tempura and sweet potato roll were bland. And my husband was disapointed with his beef tataki. What was supposed... More

A bit disorganized with the seating of their patrons and the seating is a bit tight. They tend to push parties of 2-3 t the sushi bar or the regular bar because the place is so small. But I have to say the sushi was great. The presentation of my Nigiri deluxe was very nice and tasted great. My wife... More

Brought a relative from New York here. He said that it was as good as any sushi restaurants in New York. I have to agree. The sushi is fresh, with best cuts of the fish and is well prepared.
