By and far Murasaki has the best sushi hands down! It is always fresh and served with a smile. The food on the menu is delicious. They always come up with new and delicious rolls. The owners are friendly and eager to please their customers. The restaurant is small so make a reservation or come early.

I picked up some takeout sushi and it never disappoints. Murasaki has some of the best sushi in the area. Would be great if they offered more of a unique variety though. Even so, what they do offer, always hits the spot!

I met up with a colleague. Neither of us likes raw food, but we like trying new places. Ample seating and easy to carry on a work conversation. Service may be slow if you arrive too early (but we had time). Good hot green tea, several lunch specials. I had the bbq eel, another place that serves it very tasty.... More

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... More

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... More

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.

A nice place for lunch in West Hartford. The seaweed salad, hand rolls and sushi/sashimi set lunch were fresh and deliscious. Attentive and friendly service. Great value!

This is a real Japanese restaurant and the flavors match the style. It is quite different than Chinese. We went for lunch and the staff were very friendly. The seaweed salad is the best we have had in a very long time and so was the food. We will be returning to this restaurant in the future for dinner and... More
