“Decent fusion sushi place, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We were staying at the Park Plaza Hotel and wanted a good sushi place nearby. The Snappy Sushi is a 5-10 minute walk away, right on Newbury Street near a lot of good shopping places. So we decided to go there (on a Friday night). We waited about 10 minutes to get a table outside (they offered us one inside in the basement but it had the feeling of a dungeon so we passed on that). We ordered a couple of sushi rolls, both traditional (salmon and avacado) and more creative ones. Plus some salmon nigiri. Overall, the sushi was fresh and fairly good, although not outstanding. The mamemaki roll was a bit bland, and the use of brown rice instead of proper sushi rice was perhaps best termed "a good idea gone bad". The restaurant would be better advised to perhaps give the option of brown rice for those who want it, but to us it really detracted from the flavor experience. On the other hand, the service was good and very friendly.

“Underwhelmed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

A 'fast food' type sushi experience; special roll was delicious but lunch bento box left much to be desired. It lacked freshness and flavour, and was a bland box of mushy textures. An inexpensive lunch, but there has better to be had.

I should mention the hostesses were excellent - friendly and responsive.

“Good Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

The restaurant has a really nice outdoor seating area. The food was served within a reasonable amount of time. They were very understanding towards any food concerns we had, and did their best to accommodate. Overall a very good sushi restaurant.

“Happy surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Great fusion food, very helpful and friendly service, and excellent value.
Don't arrive too late if you want to sit outside (very nice) - there was a 20-30 minute wait for tables outside. That said, the inside is perfectly okay.
