The owners have retired. It was wonderful while it lasted. We will miss George and his 30-year old knife he brought with him from Japan. He was the real deal...and his experience showed in the quality of his food.

Nice small place. Local feel. Good service. Nice to see a Nama sake in 1/2 bottle on the menu for a very reasonable price. Toro was awesome and not expensive. We really loved it.

Murasaki was recently selected as one of the top Japanese restaurants in Connecticut. The quality and variety of the food is a major reason. Although the restaurant is small, the service is quick and a table is often available after a short wait. The sushi...More
