Went to Busshari with my friend after a long day of sightseeing. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. AND, they have a deal on wine & saki-- only $5 a glass on weeknights. Would definitely recommend!!

Went here with a couple of friends for dinner. The food was generally nice but not amazing like I had been expecting. Service was generally good and friendly. Would go back, but keen to try other Japanese restaurants before I do.

Seating was functional and spacious for a crowded little restaurant. Everything fresh made right in front of you. Had, pork beef as maiBs. Sushi rolls, soft shell crab and tempura prawns all great.
