Best in the area! Great fresh sushi!

Excellent quality of sushi / sashimi, certainly the best in the area. Also has a cute Japanese table for those who are willing to take off their shoes before they eat. I would certainly come back to Mr. Pi.

I have lived in Metuchen very close to mr. Pi's sushi for a long time. Have to say this being my first visit, I was very impressed with the quality of the food. Loved the sushi, was some of the best I have ever had. While the food was great, the atmosphere wasn't. Something quite distracting going at night was... More

I never saw such unhappy people, two sushi chefs, one leading against the wall yawning, the other looked soooo mirserable he was frightening. I sat at the sushi bar, behind it was messy, cluttered and dirty looking. The staff which was abut 5, sat off the side in complete view on the handful of customers, texting and whatever on their...

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 Sushi Lunch Special #3 is their favorite.

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
