We had a surprisingly really good bento box lunch from here. The decor isn't on trend, but the staff here were friendly, and the food speaks for itself. Not gourmet Japanese but perfect for a work lunch.

This is an excellent restaurant from service to menu choices and price. Couldn't fault it in any way. It is always busy so you really need to book it, even for lunch mid-week!! Which illustrates the popularity of it. I have had the chef house sushi plate for two which has been amazing and consistent. Their tempura is to die... More

Very good food and nice service; good place to go for a decent Japanese experience. The atmosphere is nice, a bit too noisy as the dining room is not really large.

I've tried salmon sashimi (5pcs), small seaweed salad and miso soup. It came with a cup of jasmine tea... Very tasty and cost only €8 The place is elegant and definitely good value.

Musashi Musashi. I love Japanese food so I've been going around town dining at different Japanese restaurants. This is a gem in Dublin City Center. One of the best Japanese cuisine I've had so far. Great food with great flavours. Served by lovely attentive and professional staff. I visited here Monday evening with a reservation. No doubt they're always packed,... More

I eat here for lunch 2 to 3 times per month for lunch. Bento box menu is very good and a very good price. Miso soup is never a let down. Will continue to come to dine here regularly.

Nice little place with excellent service. Had the gyoza (dumplings) for starter and the curried chicken with noodles, prawns and veg for main. Really delicious and good value. Would happily return. We availed of the byob for €6 corkage.
