Everything we ordered was excellent! We had the pork belly bun as an appetizer, snow mountain maki and cowboy maki. Everything was excellent! There are uncooked and cooked items, so there is something for everyone. Service was prompt and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We've been here several times. The maki rolls are well prepared, generous and reasonable priced. There are always some nice chefs specials. The portions are very good. The wine and beer selection reasonable and good.

I'm a big fan of Maki, sushi and sashimi. This restaurant always has a great selection and efficient service. If you are attending a musical event nearby, plan on getting there by 5:15 or you'll have to wait.

Stumbled on this little gem. Went to a show at NEC, around the corner. Great sushi, beautiful presentation. Very reasonable with very good service.

Looking for a good sushi restaurant to go for dinner before a performance at Huntington Theater, Symphony Hall or New England Conservatory? Go to Symphony Sushi (but go early ... longer lines closer to curtain times). Lots of excellent vegetarian options. Friendly staff. Very reasonable...More

My comments are based on three lunch experiences. My advice is to only eat here if you can't get into anywhere else. The sushi focuses on non-sushi--sushi with eggs and sushi with cooked shrimp. The sea bass lunch was pathetic--thin strips of sea bass that...More

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
