Everything was amazing. Miso soup, salad, and gyoza were delicious. Miso and gyoza were very authentic. Shrimp and vegetable tempura was a work of art, a lot of food, and very good.

The Sushi is fresh and well put together. The sushi chefs were well trained and they do a great job putting great sushi rolls together. The kitchen is also very good and they deliver some of the best cooked Japanese dishes in the Boston area....More
