We celebrated a milestone with friends and family at this casually elegant restaurant in Brookline. The table was set up for our party of 12 when we arrived and a good meal of shared delicacies were enjoyed in a quiet setting where we could visit...More

A good barometer of authenticity and quality is the one given by Japanese expats and visitors and in this sense Shiki came up frequently as good choice. The food both the sushi and especially the non the sushi selection was very good and the service...More

The most authentic Japanese restaurant in Boston! The food here is sooooo good and fresh all the time. Closest real Japanese food experience in Boston. The kaiseki sets, hokkaido don (sea urchin, crab meat and scallops) is my favorite. But let's be real, everything is...More

My wife and I have been frequenting Shiki since it opened. For those unfamiliar with Shiki, this is not a 'sushi and beer place'. The non-sushi menu is actually more interesting and the range of quality sake's is eye-opening. Anyhow, when we came here in...More

It used to be great i heard and from the review, but they might have changed owner or whatever. Service is pretty bad, food is not worth the price and wait. The sashimi isnt as fresh too. I'd say try it at your own risk.

I am a sushi lover and freak, and by far this is the best sushi in brookline. The superb service done by japanese and the guest are from diverse part of the world. Small and not pretentious setting but full of flavors and fresh fish.

This is a nice little restaurant that serves authentic Japanese dishes. My favorite was the seared Mackerel with grated daikon. Not a dish you see in most Japanese restaurants but it was delicious. Also enjoyed the Saki sampler: 4 sakis for $14, though the servings...More

If you're craving Japanese food in the Boston area--for authenticity, taste, and variety --you must go to Shiki in Brookline's Coolidge Corner to find it! This small, Japanese run restaurant is located in basement on Babcock Street. It's not cheap, but not O-ya pricing either:)...More
