Best sushi and great service. We will definitely come back again. We went hear as a blind recommendation and it was definitely the right choice. This was the best sushi we have ever had in Virginia bar none. First class service, great food, and good prices.

We have been going here since they opened in 1997 and from the beginning it became a favorite. Mike and his staff are always welcoming and the food has never lost it's quality. Thank you Mike for 17 years of great food!

Ordered sushi and sashimi for two. It was excellent and beautifully presented though it was actually too much food for two. Also enjoyed the miso soup. We went there with a very large crowd which seemed to overwhelm them so service was very slow, but it was with the wait. A variety of dishes were ordered and everyone was pleased... More

Authentic Japanese food, and good service. We had miso soup, sushi, and edamame, all of which was very tasty. The restaurant is in easy walking distance from the Virginia Air and Space center.

Went with 4 other people for a weekday business lunch. We all had one of the lunch boxes. Plenty of food. It came with Miso soup, small salad, California rolls, rice and I had the Korean bulgogi which was well cooked and flavorful. Everyone was very pleased with the food and the service was excellent. Very attentive, explained the menu... More

I first started going to Musasi with my late wife and our next door neighbor who is Japanese. I have continued to go there after my wife's death, both with my neighbor and my daughter and sometimes with her boyfriend. I tend to stick to one or two dishes after discovering that their sukiyaki is not the Tokyo style that... More

Friendly staff. I go there frequently for the sushi and sashimi. Always super fresh and yummy. Family run with great service. Sashimi deluxe always a winner. Also the tempura on rice...ten don.

We tried Musasi for lunch one weekend but had to order off the dinner menu as they usually arent open for lunch on the weekends. The food was good, though pricey. The service was fantastic and we would return.

This is a warm and welcoming establishment in downtown Hampton. We have been going for 10 years, and have never been disappointed. The sushi is fresh, and the Korean dishes are delicious (even the kimchee!). So much better than a chain or franchise. You can even rent your own chopsticks. Mr. And Mrs. Kim are always the best hosts!

I eat at Musasi every time I am in the area. The prices are decent but the fish has always been super fresh and the crafting of the sushi pieces is really nicely done. Plenty of places will just drop a chunk of fish on a bit of rice, but sushi is an art form and you can really see... More
