Only great dinners during our 15 years of visitation. Jimmy and Joe are the perfect greeters. If you really want a tasty meal, friendly servers and fresh authentic Japanese food,... More

We ordered 3 makis, miso soup, tempura, and ocha All tasted delicious! I don't normally eat raw fish, but I could tolerate theirs - all melt in your mouth Nice atmosphere, too! Our waitress was very nice and helpful. My only complain is it's kinda pricey.

Bring your own bottle, fresh rice on the sushi that is not only tight, but plump, friendly service and meaty delicious hamachi crudo... Fresh. Came with some friends who are regulars, and were surprised to enjoy some nice sushi and dumplings in Wellesley without Wellesley stuck upness. My son had noodles that were chewy and very well seasoned with a... More

Almost... I can't say it was exactly oki, but it reminded me of it. Maybe it was the atmosphere. Sushi definitely better than high dollar, top rated sushi places in the area. BYOB is a plus too!

This is a good sushi restaurant. It has cozy atmosphere and good service. My husband doesn't like sushi but he can eat very tasty beef there.

Everyone was too tired to go out so ended up getting take out - the teriyakis were quite good and large portions with fresh salad and miso soups. The seafood and vegetable tempura was especially excellent! Very friendly service.

I love this place, the sushi is fabulous. I always get the unagi, salmon, seared tuna and so many great rolls to choose from on the menu. The green tea ice cream is one of my favorites. You also can bring your own wine, bonus!

Very ordinary sushi, pretty much same quality sushi can get in any “Super Market” chain. Also one order of Toro Sashimi should not cost 18 dollars, needless to say poor quality one. There are much better Sushi restaurants in 4 -5 miles radius and the bill will be the same or even lower.

Thank dekale
