Something for even the non-seafood patron!

My friends and I often get lunch at Mr. Pi. Their lunch specials are good and reasonably priced. I do not eat seafood and have always enjoyed their non-sushi options like the gyozo dumplings. I love the ginger carrot dressing they make for their salad. My sushi loving companions say that the... read more

Mr Pi's used to be my favorite sushi restaurant, Until Mr Pi opened a new restaurant and rarely spends any time in Metuchen. The service has gone down hill without him. A great example of 'when the boss is away . . .'

My hubby and i wanted to try a new place in the middlexsex county area. When I googled review on sushi restaurants nearby, Mr. Pi's had great reviews. We decided why not give this place a try. We got there around 3pm when they just opened. We were the only customer. The waitress was folding something in the corner and... More

Though I prefer thinner cuts... and the slices were too big to put into your mouth at once... I liked the sushi here... the salmon was sea-fresh, the splash roll exquisite... had their signature dish - the 'Volcano' and it was good as well... the Mochi was exquisite... note that this place does not serve alcohol, but you are welcome...

After surgery my wife was limited to using 3 fingers on one hand to feed herself. My immediate solution was to turn to our favorite sushi restaurant (Mr. Pi's) to solve her concern about my cooking skills. The menu is so vast that duplication is not a problem. The quality of the food is excellent and the Miso soup is... More

This is the only place to get quality sushi in Metuchen. The place is a small hole in the wall but you won't be disappointed.

One of the great finds in the area. Look for Mr Pi's on Central Ave. Central Ave is not central to Metuchen, but easy to find. Parking is limited. It is a small place. A call will make sure you get seated. If you like Sushi, you will be impressed.

My boyfriend takes me here sometimes. It's a great, affordable local sushi place with a good atmosphere. Try their mochi ice cream and other deserts!
