We liked: 1.) The broad array of choices on the menu. All types of Asian themed entrees. 2.) The food was well prepared and well presented. 3.) Service was prompt, professional and pleasant. 4.) Ample space at the table.

The experience started with new waitress Soo who was very pleasant and took our order when we were ready and we were not rushed. My co-worker commented on the service and the freshness of the sushi / sashimi. The presentation was wonderful! RECOMMENDED!

Ma Soba is a neighborhood favorite here in beacon hill. The menu is large and the variety is excellent but all the Japanese classics are there too. The wine list is very impressive...especially for a sushi restaurant.

Sushi was fresh and portions were good. A fair amount of baked options. Not a lot of variety as far as types of fish, but good rolls nonetheless. Ordered carryout once and delivery once, both were quick. Servers were very friendly.

We ate here mostly for a change of pace and it was near TD garden. It was ok, nothing special or memorable.

We absolutely love the quality of the sushi and the price is reasonable. The salmon is perfect every time :) There are often groupons available, too.

General Tso Chicken, General Tso Shrimp, Hunan Dumplings (EXCELLENT). Great service and atmosphere, decorated with holiday touches. Perfect place for my girlfriend and I to go before our show at the Wang Theater (short walk up a nice one way road and through the park). The servings are large, expect to have extra. Recommend the Hunan Dumplings if you like... More

Decent atmosphere and service, terrible food. We did not order from the sushi menu but the broccoli and beef in brown sauce I ordered tasted so bad, gristly grey steamed meat and rice that was not I would not trust the kitchen enough to order sushi there. My first and last meal here.

I love Ma Soba! They have excellent service and their prices are fair. Their Sundrop roll is a must try! They are a great place to go when the weather is nice as they keep the front windows opened. It is a great place for a date night or a business dinner.
