Overall the meal was amazing, incredible food with amazing flavours. We didn’t have the taster menu and opted for A La Carte but if we were to go back we’d definitely go for the taster menu. The restaurant was simple in terms of decor and...More

Pretentious overpriced nonsense. Unless you've taken a course in Japanese cuisine good luck in figuring out the menu and deciphering the dishes in the dark with those size 0.02 font menu sheets. I never fully understood the true meaning of overrated until i found this...More

Very friendly staff, just around the corner from South Station. I decided against taking their multicourse set menu, but to choose a la carte. Standout dishes include silken tofu tempura, cold soba with uni, and black trumpet mushroom nigiri, pork belly, egg omelette with truffles....More

The food in this place is out of this world, the tastes they manage to infuse together would shock any palette. Granted it is not a traditional sushi restaurant but if you are willing to try new things and have a rate for the finer...More

It is in a marginal neighborhood, down an alley. Unprepossessing from the outside is an understatement. The you enter and it is minimalist cement, wood, japanese decor. But you don't come for the location. You come for the best sushi in Boston, and maybe in...More
