Maki madness on Sunday!

On Sundays you can get your selection of maki rolls for only $5! The spicy tuna is my go to, and most other role I've had are pretty good, especially for the price.

Gari isn't the best sushi around , but isn't bad and the prices are reasonable, especially for the lunch special and maki madness. Maki madness is a deal on Sundays that if you pay in cash and a minimum of $15/ person, you can get a list of rolls for $4.75 each. My menu favorites are the organic salad and... More

Great prices for Maki Madness sale. Great way to go out on a cheaper date. The sushi is always fresh and the staff always friendly. Love this place!

Spicy salmon rolls and spicy tuna rolls are NOT spicy at all ... Sushi is good - but missing something ... tried several rolls on 3 occations and each time everything seemed a bit bland to me. Price are very high.

I never do a rest. review unless it is exceptional, and Garri Fusion is just that. If you are tired of bland everyday sushi then you must try this place. Every reason of why you eat sushi in the first place is right here, FRESH FISH prepared in a creative way that creates exploding flavors as you close your eyes... More

We order from Gari a lot. My boyfriend loves fugakyu but Gari has better prices and is almost as good. The place is small so dining in can feel cramped but the takeout is always great for us.

I just opened my citysearch account, because my husband and I ordered some sushi rolls by delivery. Then we found A PIECE OF GLASS in mango roll. We have a little boy, if he ate that "glass" sushi roll..? Also terrible customer service ever.. Be careful when you eat their food. seriously.

Try the gari bruschetta! Gari is located in Brookline. Most people have heard of Fugakyu and are completely missing out on this hidden little sushi restaurant that in my opinion is way more delicous!

Took an hour and 20 minutes for this place to deliver to me even though it is only .84 miles away from my house. When the food showed up it was totally gross. I will never order from this restaurant again. They told me that because it took so long they would give me 20% off, big deal! Food should... More

I discovered this hidden sushi bar with my fiance last month... and we've already been back two more times! You'll walk right by it if you're not on a mission to find it. But I recommend you go searching, because the food is amazing, the service is friendly and fast, and the prices are reasonable. In fact, if you go... More
