Amazing Atmosphere, Good Food

While on a business trip, some friends and I made our way here. We were worried at first we may be underdressed, as the hosts were wearing suits, but the customers were all casual. There were tatami booths and individual tables. We all had a lot of different sushi - all good! - and the Momo... read more

The sushi had a special touch, as did the architecture. It was decent for vegetarians. The staff seemed very busy.

Fugakyu is one of our go-to places in Brookline. The kitchen is open late and I love the atmosphere - has the option of a cozy bar, sushi bar, regular restaurant, or tatami rooms. It has a pretty extensive menu. We particularly like the una-coco maki, Black Forest maki, and the gyu-carpaccio. I do not think that this is the... More

FuGakYu was a true Japanese experience. I visited with friends and ordered a broad selection from the menu which all dishes were satisfying. A true Japanese taste makes this restaurant a great option. The place is good for large parties, as it is a big restaurant.

My husband and I are big sushi fans. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted a reputable restaurant to enjoy our time together. We went to Fugakyu for lunch and was seated immediately in a very intimate setting with sliding doors for privacy (it was spectacular)!! The suchi was the best that we've ever had and our main course... More

I have eaten at Fugakyu on many occasions. It is pricier than some other sushi options in Boston (I order from Fin's Sushi regularly), but the quality is higher in terms of food, service, presentation and ambiance. Food: The sushi is pretty fresh and on par with their prices. The party boats are good to share for larger groups, and... More

Excellent, fresh, invitingly prepared and well made sushi, sashimi, maki and Japanese food in general. Our family and friend's go to place for sushi. Seems to draw a large crowd of students and 20-30 somethings from Japan, so I guess this is a very good recommendation as well. Very pleasant atmosphere with comfortable dining area, sushi bar and many private... More

This used to be our favorite sushi restaurant in Boston. It is still decent, but no longer outstanding. The food has gone downhill while the prices have gone uphill. You can get sushi of this quality now at many places in Boston for 1/2 the price. The sake and hamachi were both firm but a bit slimy. The Idaho, which... More

I celebrated my birthday with my family and we were all delighted by the quality of the food! Very well prepared and quality ingredients! If you order a Shabu shabu, do it for more than 2 persons, so you get it cooked at your table. This was the only disappointment, we ordered so many appetisers that there was no place... More

This was the second or third time we had been to the restaurant. We usually sit at a small table in the main area but we had a party of 8 and decided to try for a "tatami" room (need 8). Fear not, the area under the table has been "dug out" so you don't have to sit with your... More
