We have eaten at Fugakyu many times over the years and consistently find it to be an excellent restaurant for sushi and Japanese cuisine. Very fresh food, fine service, lovely ambience - an overall great choice if you are looking for good sushi in Boston/Brookline.

日本人としては、味は普通です。雰囲気は日本の和の雰囲気があるので、外国人向けにはいいかもしれません。値段は高めです。もう1回行きたいか?と言われたら、特に行かないと思います。 The taste of the food is average. Japanese atomosphere. it might be a good idea to try lunch.

Food was OK, service was kind of slow. Each table is set in a closed small room which I felt a little tight and awkward.

Enjoyed an early dinner on our way to the airport. Restaurant is much bigger than it looks -- busy, but quiet, with attentive service. Food was good but even the Edamame lacked flavor
