This restaurant brings together the refined tastes of Japan and the spices of Peru to create a menu that’s sure to please. Food was very good and ambience is nice as well. The booths make a nice venue for a date night.

Excellent food, warm & professional service. For cocktails we ordered Beatrix Kiddo (outstanding) and Gordon Gekko. For dinner - Hamachi Amarillo, Blackened Octopus (absolutely outstanding), Char Sui chicken (outstanding) and Hamachi Ceviche. Highly recommended! Linh gave us excellent service. Will definately return.

This place is amazing. Fresh sushi, good service, reasonably priced. Had the RUKA spicy tuna, Dan Dan spicy noodles and tuna poke. All were delightfully well done. Ate here last evening and already wishing we could go back for lunch (if only they were open)

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
