Good Japanese Food in Brookline

Tried sushi and several other dishes and all were very good. I especially enjoyed stir fried udon noodles with vegetables. The space is pleasant and the service friendly and helpful.

We had gone with our kids to Fugakyu Brookline many years ago and had vague but positive memories of the experience, so we decided to try it with friends recently after a movie. Either our memory or the place has deteriorated. We had reservations and were seated promptly in an enclosed space . It was all downhill from there. A... More

My husband and I and our two adult children had dinner at Fugakyu this past weekend. The sashimi tasted good and was presented well, but we were less impressed by the rolls. If you're going to charge about $12 for spicy tuna roll, it better be good. It was average. The caterpillar roll, $12.00 was good but small. We have... More

Excellent food each time. Service can vary but everyone is really super nice. Place is quite big and atmosphere can vary depending on the seat. Make sure to request private / quieter corner if preferable.

We had a business meeting here over lunch. The food was excellent but the service was not all that attentive. Everyone was pleased with what they ordered.

I was in Boston on business and FuGaKyu was a convenient sushi spot. The prices were more than I am used to because I am from Texas, but I must say I ate here twice on this trip. Great sushi, great flavors, great location, many choices

For family or couples, one of the best places to get sushi,sashimi and maki in the burbs. The wait staff has been these forever and it feels like home once you go there more than once. A lot of variety and excellent quality food.

Used to live closer and went here all the time. Is it more expensive than other sushi places? Yes. Is it worth it? Unquestionably. Had a great dinner last night. Got there a bit early for our 7PM res, were given a great table up front. Service was wonderful, food was EXCEPTIONAL. We're big Sake Sashimi fans and have had... More

We selected this restaurant because it was only a block from the Holiday Inn in Brookline where we were staying. When you're the only Caucasians in a Japanese restaurant you know you're in the right place for this cuisine. We tried some traditional dishes (miso soup, fried goyza) and moved on to duck in a spicy sauce and scallop katsu.... More
