Business dinner with an old friend. We were looking for great sushi and found that and more. Appetizers and the sushi rolls were excellent, and our server was one of the best ! She was engaging, funny and really knew her stuff

I have worked nearby for the last few years but did not go until this last weekend. They have some nice lunch options that are priced between $14 and $18. The price is on the high side but you got a lot of good food. I had the Sushi lunch box while my friend got the salmon teriyaki lunch box.... More

My wife and I have been here 3 times, though not in the past two years until last weekend. We live in the area and love Douza which is close by. We went on a Friday night and called Douza first which had a 45 minute wait. We walked into Haru and were immediately sat in a 1/2 empty restaurant.... More

This is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. I eat here whenever I am in Boston. After five visits, I have never been disappointed. Everything I have eaten is outstanding and the service is excellent. For the location, atmosphere, and food quality, it's quite reasonably priced. I highly recommend this place.

A fun place to escape the city rush. The service is great and the people are friendly. The restaurant is not too noisy and the food is quite good.

We had a very good sushi and excellent service at Haru. Very nice lady that served us and was willing to do everything to help us with our 5 month old. Would go there again for sure. Good sushi, fresh.

Eating sushi at Haru has become somewhat of a tradition when I'm visiting Boston. The fresh, tasty sushi and lively atmosphere make for a very pleasant dining experience that keeps me coming back for more. Pricing is reasonable and the food is always consistent. Last year my wife and I had a surprise engagement party thrown for us in one... More

I stumbled on this sushi place cutting thru the Prudential mall. Great sushi and very reasonable prices! The decor and atmosphere is very trendy but not loud. I really enjoyed the sushi. They had a special crawfish roll is a spicy roumalade sauce. Very inventive!!

This is a big venue reminiscent of some ancient Chinese restaurant with lacklustre decor. Ninety percent of tables were unoccupied on a Saturday lunch time. I had some undersized California rolls that were substandard. The udon came with white tofu with slices of Chinese mushroom and snow peas. I suspect they actually have a Chinese Cantonese chef and not a... More
