New interior is very nice. People are nice. The food was not great. Fish was not fresh. Okay overall. I will not order sashimi next time.

Among the best sushi n both freshness and preparation, We have been sushi fans for decades, long before it was readily available.This compares favorably with sushi we have had in Boston, Cambridge, New York, DC and many other cities. Mid size family run pleasant environment and friendly service.

I should have known better than to go to a japanese restaurant with the name of 'ginger', after all, I had lived in Tokyo, Japan for 5 'superashi'years¥¥¥¥¥! The restaurant was full and the service was good, unfortunately the food went rapidly downhill; the RICE, foundation of all sushi and maki was undercooked with no seasoning; sushi were edible but blend;maki were ridiculously large and misshapened; the only saving grace were the sashimi. But alas, this is BOSTON! How could one go terribly wrong with Boston's finest offerings, FISHES & SEAFOODS??? Lesson learnt, do not eat in non japonica restaurants! SAYONNARA! ¥¥¥¥¥¥¥!

Good location with ample street parking. Newly re-opened. Relaxing atmosphere. Nice décor and comfy seating. Mid-priced range to upper-priced value for lunch; more expensive for dinner selection. Had 2 varieties of bento box: Good quality meal; presentation looked good; sushi seemed fresh but cut smaller than average. Quantity is sufficient (although skimpy on rice); portions are on the small scale.... You will leave satisfied but not fully stuffed. We had exemplary service and attentive waitress but she took a break amidst our meal. The table next to us was served by a snotty waitress (caught our attention) that needs attitude adjustment or needs to get retrained with customer service. No matter, we will return and try another dish next time we are in the area.

Restaurant was clean, food was good, however our waitress was not very friendly nor good. When my husband ordered Teriyaki Shrimp and it came doused with sesame seeds, it wasn't anything he could eat since he can't have seeds for medical reasons. When we asked the waitress if she could make one without seeds, she brought a new one without then quickly told us in a snotty manner that we should have ordered without to begin with. Nothing on their menu said it came covered with sesame seeds so it wasn't my husband's fault. Then when she was cleaning up after us (a party of four who spent quite a lot for the meal), she spilled the leftover soup on my husband's coat. She offered to help clean it with wet napkins, however, there was no offer to pay for the dry cleaning. Needless to say, we won't be going back there. The waitress' attitude needs a lot of improvement and we can find other Japanese restaurants with better treatment. The only reason I gave this restaurant an "average" rating is because the food was alright.
