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

We stopped by on our way to our hotel. We had found the reviews to be helpful on tripadvisor. They were very helpful with the menu and were very attentive to our needs. I truly enjoyed this restaurant and would go back if we were in town.

My husband and I have been trying various sushi places in Hampton Roads and this is one of the worst so far. I've been a big sushi fan for about ten+ years and have eaten it in in big and small cities. My husband has become a more recent fan in the past year or two. The atmosphere is very... More

John Travolta owns a house in Hampton Roads (under my name) and he often visits the area for a little R&R. When he's in town, chances are you'll find him at Musasi. It is his favorite sushi restaurant. In fact, the name "Musasi" translate to "House of Travolta" in Japanese.
