Great sushi a la carte. I used to enjoy the chefs choice sometimes but not so much lately. My son doesn't eat sushi and they have a great varied menu for him of Japanese and Thai dishes. Give me the sushi and sashimi! Great service. Great sushi chefs. Few people sit at the sushi bar. I opt to sit at... More

Wanted to like the place after reading good and bad reviews but alas it was not meant to be. As an experienced diner and restaurant server I will admit that I'm a bit critical when it comes to eating out. Let me point out some pros and cons. Pros: Fairly close by No wait Cold beer Timely service Cons: Glass... More

I eat here 2-3 times a month, and I am never disappointed ( I was actually there last night). My favorite sushi is the Mexican Maki (crunchy tempura crumbs mixed with crab meat) and Half Moon Maki. Two of my favorite dishes are the Sesame Chicken and the Chicken Pad Tai. The lunch specials are amazing - great portions for... More

I've been Sei Bar in Medford a handful of times in the past year and a half. I've had the Thai and Chinese food there. I haven't tried their Japanese yet. The restaurant from outside is deceiving because it looks very small, however, there is plenty of seating inside. There's a back dining room you can't see from the front... More

My friends and I really enjoy this place for sushi and drinks. We haven't ventured beyond the appetizers to any main dishes because we enjoy the great sushi they have to offer. The service is always very courteous and quick. I also use this place during major holidays to feed my friends or get a much needed break from cooking.... More

We arrived 6:00 ish on Friday -- on our way to a concert in Boston and the traffic was lousy, so we decided to eat just outside of Boston. We live in Medford and had seen this place for several years. We were greeted by a group of people at a podium just inside the door. We were shown to... More

Had sushi almost everywhere around Boston (except those restaurants that cost $100+ per meal). This is by far my favorite, go-to place. From the perfectly cooked rice, to the perfect amount of rice, to the perfect seaweed, to the fresh, tender salmon or tuna or whatever you pick, the sushi is exactly what I like and want. Also the prices... More

I have tried many sushi restaurants in the Boston area and this is by far the best. Sushi is fresh; chef is creative. The scallop U10 appetizer is lovely. I have never had a piece of so so sahimi here, and that is not true of many other usually reliable places. They also have some other asian selections if your... More

I live nearby in Somerville, and this is my favorite sushi restaurant around. I also have them deliver sushi to my door more frequently than I’d like to admit. The staff are so friendly and fun to be around, and of course the sushi is awesome. The spicy scallop maki is my fave!

At times we can only afford the appetizers since it is a bit expensive for us. They food is first rate, fresh and lovely and delicious. A must try.
