    I always leave Musashi with a feeling of greatfulness and gratitude that this restaurant exists in Palm Desert. It’s some of the most amazing sushi I’ve had in the world. The ama ebi was an absolute treat, but for the less adventurous, the Musashi is a tremendous signature roll. A great selection of saki, I would recommend the HIZO OTOKOYAMA. It’s hard to beat some of the basics, and they expertly execute the maguru nigiri. It’s absolutely tender and delicious. Service is attentive at the tables, but I highly recommend sitting at the bar and interacting with the chefs. Watching their expert skills beats a TV or cell phone!

    Seated on time. Sushi was outstanding. Each item we ordered was served one at a time. Would have liked it all served at the same time.

    Hands down best sushi & Japanese fair in the Coachella valley! Every morsel we ate was so tasty & fresh. It’s obvious everything is created with thought & care. Friendly helpful staff. Cozy seating. We will definitely be back. Ditto to other reviews; reservations needed.

    Food was fresh and delicious. I am still transitioning to new portion sizes at full price, but that is a universal restaurant and market thing. Very attentive and friendly service!

    I wasn’t happy that the menu posted on open table had lower prices than the actual menu. The tempura soba it had no flavor. The nigiri was good. The California roll was filled with too much mayo.
