Haiku Sushi Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Everything about our first

    Everything about our first visit to Haiku was excellent, from the thoroughly entertaining waiter to the fantastic food. The crab rangoon and crunchy lobster rolls were especially delicious. Looking forward to our next visit!

    We went for lunch expecting to order Sushi and some apps for the non-Sushi lover. Our server let us know about the special Crab Rangoon Maki so we got that and what a delight! It may have spoiled us for typical Crab Rangoon forever and created a Sushi convert in the process. The Gyoza were also wonderful cooked: seared crunchy, well seasoned and served with scallion soy sauce. The edamame were plentiful, cooked perfectly crisp and had just enough salt to bring our their natural flavor. We're looking forward to our next visit, soon.

    Haiku is our favorite sushi restaurant in Worcester County. It's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. The menu includes many other interesting Japanese dishes as well as sushi. Wonderful, high quality food, superb service, an excellent bar and a pleasant environment. The uni was fresh and delicious -- my standard for the attention to quality throughout the restaurant's operation. You won't be disappointed!

  • Don't believe the website
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/27/2013
    We were looking for a special restaurant in which to celebrate our wedding anniversdary. When checking out Haiku's website we noticed that they were offering a free dessert or appetizer with any entree Tuesdays through Thursdays. We decided this was a good enticement to try it, so we made a reservation for a Thursday evening. After looking over the menu, we asked our waitress about the free dessert or appetizer. She just shrugged it off and indicated that they hadn't offered any freebies for a very long time. We should have taken the hint and left then and there. Unfortunately we stayed and were further disappointed by our experience there - it certainly did not meet the high expectations we had formed reading other's reviews.

    Very comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Service is superior, Randy and Sean are wonderful. Very extensive menu offerings, something for anyone, not just sushi lovers. Chef's Creations are a must, what a variety! Lobster bisque appetizer was just perfect. Great specials, especially the tuna steak (cooked perfectly) and salmon. Very nice wine list. I'll be going back for my 3rd visit soon because there are so many items I want to try. Our entire party loved it - not one criticism.

    We had 6 sushi rolls, and a mix of salads and clam chowder for appetizers, as well as the razatini and some homemade watermelon margarita. The food was excellent, and the waitress was very nice and attentive (though very busy). It's a very tightly spaced Restaraunt but we had plenty of room in our booth.

    The food was absolutely amazing! Everything was fresh, delicious, and attractively presented. I loved the creativity of Kenzo's sushi rolls. I was hoping for a quieter and more romantic atmosphere and I was surprised at how noisy and busy it was inside. I will definitely return to enjoy the incredible food and great service but I will have a different expectation about the atmosphere and ambiance.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/9/2013
    Our evening reservation was not noted in their book, however we had made our reservation via Open Table. The seating was very crowded and uncomfortable. Service was very slow, and our dinners were not delivered together. Two in the party had ordered sushi(entire order not delivered at one time) while the third had ordered a steak, thus we needed to wait for the steak to be served. Cocktails were fair. However, we did visit one day for lunch, the service and food was excellent.

    This is our second time to Haiku since we discovered it. We loved it so much we brought our friends. This Asian fusion restaurant has it all, from sushi to steaks to lamb and fish dishes. Every dish is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate! Try the sushi appetizer with the beef tenderloin and the tempura shrimp. Amazing! Thanks, Kenzo, you are truly an award-winner! The service is excellent, from when you are greeted to when you are seated. Thomas was attentive, made excellent suggestions, and gets five stars in our book! We can't wait to go back again and bring more friends. We travel from Bolton and it is well worth the trip!

    What happened to this restaurant? It used to be great! Decent sushi. No frills plating display. Maguro tuna tasted not quite fresh. Slight refrigerator taste. Didn't know the price of tea until the bill came. Pot of very weak green tea was $5! Really!? $5 ?!? ( A Pepsi is $2. ) Waitress was super friendly and helpful. Was able to answer questions and make suggestions. Probably won't be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/11/2012
    I had a groupon deal, and decided to use it for my anniversary with my girlfriend. I made the right choice! The deal, first of all, was excellent! We split 2 appetizers (edamame, and the avocado salad) which were both great, and the perfect size. We had 3 rolls, the alligator, the twister, and I forget the name of the other, maybe the sunrise? Regardless, all three were so different, and bursting with flavor. you could tell that the fish was fresh, and that the chef was very much into his work - a very nice guy! The staff was friendly, and really helped me out a lot. When i told them it was my anniversary, they jumped right on board and brought out a beautiful dessert. We had the greatest time, just sitting and laughing.

    Maybe I'd set the bar too high based on all the great reviews I've read but dining @ Haiku was a disappointing experience. The food was good but there were a number of problems with the service. Repeatedly got our order wrong. Long waits between ordering & being served especially considering it seemed to be a slow night. When it came time for coffee & dessert, we decided to go elsewhere.

    I loved the sushi specials, very unique and delicious. They have a great selection of wine but I really liked the sake flights. Such a great idea. You get to try samples of different types of sake. We were very happy to find that they also had great food for my non-sushi eating friends. I definitely recommend this place.

  • Under New Ownership - Oh! No!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/14/2012
    My wife and I went to the Haiku in Worcester to celebrate our wedding anniversary, expecting to have fine food and excellent service as we had had in the past. The restaurant is under new ownership and it has lost that excellent service that it use to have. We arrived at 4:30 PM and left near 6:00 PM. We were the only people eating in the restaurant. One other person came in and sat at the bar during this time. The new kitchen staff has to get up to speed to learn the menu. It seemed like forever to get an appetizer (Gyoza) of dumplings containing shrimp and vegetables. It took the cook and owner so long to decide how to plate the dish that by the time it was served, it was not hot anymore.
