I am saddened to write this update. It's been about a year or so since we were last here and I couldn't believe how disappointed I was with this visit. First off it is obvious they are struggling. No more wait staff, no more liquor...license, cheap plates, paper plates.....packaged wasabi!!?? Not the great restaurant it once used to be. Worst of all was the sushi! I noticed the difference right away. The presentation was terrible on a plastic plate. Our maki rolls came out too fast and made me suspicious. The one I had tasted like it had been sitting around for a couple hours. Mushy rice and chewy seaweed and nothing tasted fresh. The spicy seafood salad was mushy too! The prices had really gone up! We had seaweed salad, seafood salad and 4 maki rolls. $90+!! What a total disappointment. This place was the best sushi restaurant for me for a couple years. At this rate, I don't think they will be open for very long. *sigh*More

Personal taste preference is a hardest thing to judge in a restaurant business. But if about the size that is being small, I would dare to compare any other similar type of restaurants around; and regarding about overpriced, if you are not getting...More
Absolutely love the food here! Wasn’t expecting much but proven wrong! Went during lunch today and got the udon with two sides with a roll of sushi. Good portion for the price- the fish was fresh! :) enjoyed everything!
It’s the best sushi place around. The fish tastes fresh. It’s like they just got it! Quality and tons of selection. The price is good too. It’s our place to go for sushi. The host is the best, very very friendly. The atmosphere is nice...it’s small and cozy. They also do take out and deliver. Parking is a little tricky.More
Ocean is our go-to place for sushi, usually as a family outing. We've been multiple times over the past 3-4 years. Host is very friendly. Nice atmosphere and decor. Service can be a bit spotty at times. Like it better for eat-in than for takeout....Prices are reasonable. Always very fresh.More
Came here for lunch on the weekend. Tons of options for maki rolls as well as standard non-sushi choices like noodles, tempura, etc. I got the Godzilla Roll, it was very good. Prices are reasonable and service is quick.
I love this place! The maki, sushi and sashimi are all excellent. The wide selection makes it a treat to order something different each time I go. Some of my favorites are the Scorpion Maki, Melrose Maki and the Spicy Tuna Maki. The temperature of...the food is perfect (not too cold) and its fun to sit and watch the chefs make the meal right in front of you if you sit at the bar. The price is reasonable and the ambience of the restaurant is mellow, When I order from home, the delivery is swift and accurate. If you don't live at Windsor at Oak Grove apartments, it's best to park on Main St. Oh, and they close from 3-5pm each day.More
Just off Main Street in Melrose close to Malden. Nice ambiance with the chefs right there. They have tables, and a bar seating set up. Good service extensive menu with a lot of choices - all delicious. Nice touch is the tempura flakes in many...of the maki's. A bit on the expensive side but who wants cheap sushi hang over. Free parking outside of the restaurant.More
Wandered into this little storefront in one of the new residential/commercial developments that have popped up at the end of every T line everywhere of late. Glad we did.
Nice room, nice staff, great food. Huge extensive menu, lots of combos and options. Affordable. Generous...portions, quality fish. Have been back for birthday meals and random lunches and am always happy with the experience.More
I will be short . My stepfather who has never eaten sushi with us after trying ocean sushi now loves it. We order twice a month take out there . Fresh amazing and delicious . Melrose is a nothing town it needed some flavor and...ocean sushi has it ! I highly recommend you try it !More
