This is the best Japanese restaurant in Boston. Fish is very fresh. The chef is very creative. The service is excellent.

Friendly and knowledgeable service who helped us to navigate the menu. This must really have been the best Japanese restaurant we have visited. Long open hours. Many veg options, which is crucial to us. Fabulous food!!

I went here with friends and food and service were both good. Good sushi selection. Our waitress was excellent and very polite. This is a large restaurant which is hard to find in a city like Boston. Even though it is large, it has an intimate feel that is great for dining out with friends or dining as a couple.... More

Food was very good, selection was perhaps overly large ( can start to feel like a diner) We were seated on the top floor of this huge restaurant.. There are several intimate spaces though so it doesn't feel massive. Our waiter Ivan was excellent, non intrusive and polite. I would go again

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.
