It's a take out restaurant with a few small tables. Located in the parking lot near Shaws and Melrose animal clinic. The food is good with reasonable price. The staff is friendly. Plenty of parking. Open 4 pm

It's tiny in there. Most people do take out but if you eat in byob of wine or saki. Friendly staff and good rolls. Not fancy. Very charming.

I lived in Melrose a few years ago and used to frequent this hidden gem en route home from work. To say then, that it was the best sushi in the area was an understatement. That sentiment remains as we just made the journey back after having left Melrose. I had to visit "my" Sushi Corner to see if my... More

I would recommend it - the difficult part is getting there. Well, getting in. They are no longer open for lunch, and their dinner hours are limited. They're hard to find, tucked behind Main Street, near Shaws and the Animal Hospital. Seating is also limited. However, once you get there, sit, order, and get your food - it's well worth... More

Sushi Corner has been producing reasonably priced, great tasting sushi for over a decade. This family run operation is as consistently good as any place I've seen. The sushi is made with great care, portions are generous and the prices are extremely reasonable. Special rolls, maki, sashimi, appetizers - everything is always excellent. It is pretty much a take-out spot... More

I go here for takeout quite often and love it. The prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly and my order is always ready by the time I'm told. The restaurant itself is small and I've never eaten in, but I'd definitely recommend takeout!

I must say that I am addicted to several of their signature rolls, and always find myself disappointed when I"m at a different restaurant and cant' find something equivalent. Great variety, fresh fish, and BYOB if you are dining in (visit Beacon Hill Wine & Spirits around the corner if you forgot to bring something - they even have sake).

I live down the street from Sushi Corner and order from them all the time! The miso soup is always hot, very flavorful, and delicious; the avocado rolls are fresh; and the salad has some of the best ginger dressing I've ever tried. The place is tiny so I would recommend take out over trying to dine in as there... More
