For this price range, one of the best Japanese restaurants in Boston!! We eat here every week.

Great food - the tempura here is fantastic, so is their sushi. We prefer their teriyaki chicken over teriyaki salmon, but both are good. Udons are also good.

Great value - For $12 set, you get miso soup, salad, rice, california maki, shu mei, tempura and an entree (chicken or salmon teriyaki etc).

We regularly bring friends here, and have only had good experiences.

Last Sunday, my wife and I , with friends, we went to this Lesley University. From the front side, near the Porter square MBTA station. It wasour first visit to this area, and we were so surprised with the numerous litle Japanese type restaurant/eatery. It reminded me of the small neighborhood eateries in Japan!
We were impressed with the menu and the variety of Japanese dishes. We ordered sashimi and soba soups, it was delicious! We will be back to try the other Japanese little restaurants/eateries, soon. The parking at the rear of the building seem spacious, but we only had to walk a few yards from the subway! It was a very good adventurous Sunday!

While visiting Cambridge and staying at the Mary Prentiss Inn we walked down to Blue Fin per recommendation of the Innkeeper (who was half Japanese) and we are so glad that we listened to her. The food was delicous and the service was friendly. We can't wait to try this place again so we can try something different.

Blue Fin is in Porter square. Take the T or if you drive, park in the lot behind the building and get your parking validated at the restaurant before you pay the security guard. This is in the Lesley University complex and there are several other good food options, mostly Japanese style restaurants, in the food court area. Blue Fin is my favorite. Go with friends so you can order a lot and share. Yakiniku donburi, hotate hokkaiyaki, agedashi tofu, steamed gyoza, on the list of things I have ordered.

We went there with a baby and they directly put us in a small ugly room and not in the main room. Out of curiosity, i checkrf the main room and there was a lot of free tables. It feels weird to be a second class customer (you still pay the same price anyway) because you have a baby with you.The sushi are ok, nothing to dye for... but it is quite cheap.
