Fun place to go in a group - get a private room. Menu is extensive. Rustic Americana sushi - as opposed to trendy or gourmet or authentic Japanese business man sushi. Still fills a need for consistently prepared average or just above average sushi in a hygienic and slightly trendy locale.

A fairly large-scale Japanese restaurant with different rooms and set-ups -- including rotating sushi bar and traditional-style rooms where you sit on top of the pit. It has the atmosphere of hip place, though not overly refined or upscale. The food we ordered - various sushi, nabeyaki udon, and seafood shabu shabu - were all decent. The portion felt large....

I have been to Fugakyu several times, often for special occasions and am never disappointed! The atmosphere is great, complete with slide-in doors and a real japanese vibe. I look forward to it every time and especially enjoy the Ebi Mango Maki and shrimp shumai. That being said, I really don't think you can go wrong with any order! I... More

I have heard rave reviews of this place before and remember enjoying it years ago but went for lunch and was extremely disappointed. Everything was just ok and I didn't really enjoy any of the sushi rolls. I would expect much better for what they charge.

Extensive menu options for sushi, sashimi, tempura, and more. Everyone can get what they want. Love the atmosphere here with the sliding doors that allow private dining, the art work, and the gardens.

I like the location. It is right on Beacon in Coolidge Corner. They have great cocktails but overpriced. They also have rooms for small and medium size parties.

We love having sushi at Fugakyu. Its always fresh and delicious, with nice presentation. Waitstaff are extremely nice, and the place is well run. Have been here many times and the food is consistently great. Love the gyoza! They offer a flight of white wines, each of which complements the food, nice selection.
