Best of Boston

2006 Best Sushi


The old-school Japanese-themed décor may be a bit hokey, but this Brookline institution still offers adventurous eaters an unrivaled selection of creative rolls, such as spicy cod roe with squid and scallion and grilled pineapple, crab, and cucumber. Traditionalists will be equally sated by the sublimely fresh nigiri, which kimono-clad staffers deliver literally by the boatload.
