    The sushi was just okay relative to other places in Boston and the prices were not only insane, but fairly misleading. There is a larger selection of individually priced pieces vs. rolls so you naturally gravitate there but it becomes wildly expensive. We had a 4 person dinner with moderate drinking and nowhere near a ton of food and it was $600 without Tip. I will not be returning anytime soon unfortunately.

    The restaurant is so nice. The Decor is amazing. The hostesses were very nice and welcoming. The crispy rice tuna was amazing, probably our favorite. We also tried the scallop appetizer and it was delicious. The salmon tartar was average we both agreed we’d probably not order it again. The Sushi was good. We shared the chocolate cake dessert and it was very good, very rich chocolate flavor. Our server could have been friendlier but overall we had a good experience and would come back.

    Amazing food, definitely worth the price. Not too loud so you can go and still have a conversation, but not too quiet where it's awkward. Great service and quality traditional sushi.

    Overall it was a good experience although I do have a couple of suggestions. For the menu I would make it more client friendly, meaning make the description of the sushi roll choices more clear. Most places will give a better explanation of what each roll consists of.

    Our server was the rudest server I’ve ever had in my life and as an industry professional I normally wouldn’t say this, but it that guy hates his job so much he shouldn’t be doing it. It ruined my boyfriends birthday dinner and I was embarrassed. Also - he didn’t stop touching his nose in a very disgusting way

    This was by far one of the best if not the best sushi restaurant I've ever gotten the pleasure of trying. Not only was everything we ate incredible, the service was top notch. Our server and captain on shift struck up great conversation and helped recommend incredible items. The ambience and music was also very good. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone that is looking for one of the best sushi experiences available. If you go in larger group 3-6 people, I recommend trying as much as you can and covering as much ground on the menu - it will blow you away!! Thank you for the excellent service and culinary experience.
