Great choice of Japanese food. Excellent pieces and surprising taste. A right spot to be repeated on a next vacation.

This was a wonderful place - one of the best I have every been to! We did a chef's tasting and it was perfect. Our waiter was excellent - he knew his sushi and sake. I highly recommend this place if you are in Boston!

This is an amazing little restaurant. We were blown away by the creativity of this chef. I have only eaten Japanese food this good in Japan or at Nobu - and I feel this is one to beat it. Try the tasting menus and plan a long evening to savour and enjoy the amazing and creative dishes. Really worth any... More

I know it's probably not saying much, but this little sushi place in the middle of Kenmore Square is the tops in the area. Some innovative special rolls, always high quality, and fast delivery if you live in the area. Very reasonably priced as compared to some of the other larger, "fancier" sushi places.

We ordered the vegetarian lunch special with tea. It came with miso soup & a small salad, avocado roll & a weird pickled veggie roll, as well as the sweet rice pockets. We liked everything but the weird pickled roll. The bill was reasonable. Location is right on Newbury street.

Used to really like the sushi until I got mild food poisoning last summer.
