“A nice, quaint, off the beaten path Sushi restaruant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

I have dined at the sushi bar on several occasions and have enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Sushi chefs are friendly and open to tailoring dishes to your liking even if it isnt on the menu. Quality is excellent and portions are reasonable. I think their prices are just a scosche high compared to comparable sushi restaruants in the area. That said, I don't mind paying a little more for good quality, friendly service and cozy atmosphere. Quality of fish is excellent as it should be for sushi grade fare. All sushi is not created equal. So far, Musashi has not disappointed.

“What a find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

Thanks to Trip Advisor. The freshest sashimi, nice portion, good price. Chef Masa was very creative, making us "something" and yummie that was not on the menu. Very attentive wait staff, cozy atmosphere. Will be back soon.

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

Best sushi I’ve ever had the fish is cold and very fresh and I’m not sure what they put in their California rolls but I am addicted to them they are a definite must have. The staff is super nice and attentive I don’t think my glass was ever empty once.
