Reviews:"This is, hands down, THE place for sushi and other very authentic Japanese delights in Boston (They also have a branch in Brookline!), and (SURPRISE!) itīs one of the cheaper places in town. The original Chinatown location is open practically until dawn. Ginza consistently gets the top ! rating (26/30!!!)for Japanese food in the Zagat survey, and itīs not hard to see why. Every item on the virtual encyclopaedia of a menu, from creative maki and an extensive nigiri selection to mouth-watering appetizers (over 40) and nabemono is worth a try! Special praise goes to the hirame-usuzukuri, monkfish pate, ebi-su, tempura, and makimono such as the spicy tuna, īcaterpillarī, īkmeeksī, and īscorpion.ī Dinner can run from about $20 to $40 per person, depending on what one orders. Nothing will clear out the wallet more quickly! Lunch specials (including donburi) are a particularly attractive option for the budget-minded (about $8). The wait staff (all in kimono), though occasionally overburdened, canīt seem to do enough for you. Reservations are recommended; on weekend nights the queue can extend out the door."
- Harry Perlmutter ( [October 26th 1998]
"I feel this has got to be the most over-rated place in Boston. I've had several experiences over the last couple of years when I've dealt with rude service and poor quality fish at this place. You're also in a catch-22 situation in that if you go during normal restaurant hours you're stuck with an overburdened staff, and if you go late at night they are apathetic (perhaps being one of the very few late night places in Boston has made them less concerned with customers). I've had much better luck at Gyuhama and Sakura-bana. "

Phone:(617) 421-9405
Reviews:"Excellent sushi and pan-asian dishes."
- David Suspanic ( [May 13th 1998]
" This is THE place regarding both the quality of the food and the place as such (they have this huge fish tank in the restaurant!). Not as inexpensive as Shino Express but they do have excellent sushi (very fresh and nice presentation). The place can be pretty crowded, especially on Friday and Saturday nights (no wonder ...) This restaurant was my all time favorite when I lived just round the corner. "

"If you like sushi because it's young, hip, and a flashy way to spend your money, look no further. If you have the money to spend, Osushi does have some talented chefs and amazing ingredients--$300 sakes (that retail for $120), bluefin, kampachi, and japanese scallops. They don't use surimi/kanikama in their california rolls here. While Osushi does have nice, high-end ingredients like bluefin otoro and wagyu beef on the menu, and takes full advantage of Boston's fish markets to offer seasonal fish specials, their profit margin is quite high. Expect to pay $35 for 5 uzuzukuri-thin slices of kobe beef, surrounded by an absurdly overwhelming garnish. A savvy menu-reader will notice dishes like the uni rice with toro tartare and realize that the $22 dish is made from tuna scraps and uni pieces unfit for gunkanmaki--fundamentally good ingredients made palatable by a smart chef, but a ridiculous markup, nonetheless. This restaurant is situated in a mall with shops like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Jimmy Choo, and is priced and poised not to appeal to foodies, but to the nouveau riche--if you care what a suit looks like and not who's on the label, you might not be fooled by this dressed-up sushi farce. The ambience is loud techno and dim red lighting--loud and young, but admittedly hip and stylish. It's like designer clothing--it's not as amazing as its price, but it certainly isn't bad. Spend your money where you choose, but I'll be looking for something more authentic and more focused on the food next time I'm in Boston. "

- Andrea Achterberg [September 18th 1997]
"Incredibly inexpensive considering the quality (and the location)! Especially great for take-out. The restaurant as such is very basic (nothing where I would spend an evening, more a Sushi bar than anything else). "
