Really liked their lunch optionS

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.... read 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

Wanted to go here for "late night" eats. From 10pm to 11pm they have a happy hour.... Happy hour for the employees trying to leave I guess, they locked the door and were cleaning the floors. Not busy enough to stay open :( Too bad. I went to douzo. About 10 minutes away, walking... They were open, and the sushi... More
