We had sushi, sashimi and big rolls, and I cannot complain for the fish freshness and quality except for the tough octopus of the sushi (I normally would expect tough fish is not served). However, I would define all dishes tasting a bit 'flat', without that something that makes a japanese restaurant stand out compared to others serving good average... More

I have been visiting Musashi now for the past two years and it's equally as good every time.. I've introduced family and friends to this place and it just doesn't disappoint..there sushi is just delicious!! The service, staff, atmosphere and food are extremely hard to beat.. Keep up the good work!

Read LovinDublin review and visited to try out noodles...very clean, but food was tasteless - two noodles dishes. Tempura prawns were soggy (cooking oil wasn't hot enough) and skewered chicken was fatty and also tasteless. Won't be back.

I'm not an expert in Asian cuisine, but, I love eating it. The food is fab. I normally choose small portions of different types of sushi to have a good mix. They have some delicious lunch specials for less than 10 euros (noodles, rice or ramen). The atmosphere is great. The tables are a bit small but I think it... More

I always enjoy the fantastic food and the friendly service in musasashi. A good selection in the menu, lots of sushi and sashimi along with noodle and rice dishes. Good for veggies and meat eaters alike! Generally requires booking, especially in the evening.

This is a very busy restaurant but deservedly so. The food is attractively presented and of very good quality. We were presented with complimentary Japanese green tea to start with and chocolates to finish with. The service was excellent. just the job after our extensive walking tour of the city.

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.
