“Best Sushi in West Hartford, Hands Down!”
Review of Murasaki Japanese Restaurant - CLOSED

Murasaki Japanese Restaurant
Cuisines: Sushi, Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 February 2016

I've been a proud patron of Murasaki for several years, and can honestly say that the staff go above and beyond in catering to their guests. Most sushi establishments simply advertise what rolls they have available that day, collecting your "sushi card," and subsequently leaving. Murasaki does no such thing. What many people don't understand is that there's a difference between a sushi joint and a Japanese restaurant. Although Murasaki may offer finely prepared sushi rolls, it's also a full-service restaurant. This means that they offer phenomenally crafted ethnic appetizers, paired with delicious imported wines that you don't see at other sushi places.

Murasaki has easily become my favorite Japanese restaurant! Located in West Hartford center it offers amazingly fresh sushi and sashimi along with a wide variety of delicious Japanese dishes. While I always love to get a tuna roll or sashimi my favorite dish has become the nabeyaki soup. Similar to a ramen it offers thick noodles in a delicious broth and should not be missed!
The restaurant itself is tiny with less than 15 tables. Has a very cozy and authentic feel. The service is more relaxed than other restaurants so it can take a little longer to be served but it is more than worth it and never too long that you would think about leaving.

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 and sashimi options change frequently but we've never been disappointed with our choices.

Murasaki is our favorite Japanese restaurant. Staff is very friendly and remembers our preferences. My wife loves the soft shell crab appetizer. Other favorites are the tempura dishes, beef teriyaki, and the Bento dinner boxes.
