Not as traumatized as 'pursuit' reviewer but I'd have to agree with the negative impression. I am a local and took my chance 3 times at Cafe sushi because it's very close to me and reviews (magazines) keep putting it on the map. We'll assume they pay for this... The space could host any activity and has zero personality -... More

Ample parking, excellent service, warm savory food. Bring quarters for the meters. Great place to meet friends or family.

Reservations are needed here especially for dinner. Parking is on the street. Have quarters. Sitting at the Sushi Bar is generally the Chef Choice. The price is based on what fish they have at that time. Anywhere from $85+. There are 6-8 different offerings. I had Miso soup that was very tasty. Also had Eel, shrimp and ginger Makimono. Very...

To be fair, I did not eat here -- because I WALKED OUT. I came here on a Thursday night -- it was empty, smelled moldy, but because the reviews were so strong we braved it out and thought we'd try it. Sat at the sushi bar when a non-Asian man walked over and started to set up our area.... More

I go here quite often whenever I visit Cambridge. Seems often quite busy here for dinner and the good value sushi choices is the reason. The fish is fresh seems there is good selection sadly does not seem to offer stuff some stuff I like but I guess isn't for the locals here such as uni and ikura. For a... More

Stopped in here for some rolls when passing though town after seeing it 2nd on a list of Boston's best sushi. It was not that great. Too much hype. I shared three rolls and only really enjoyed one of them (avocado and eel)

I ordered the sushi combination and it was good. The rice was the perfect temperature, and the fish was skillfully cut and formed a very good nigiri. Service could be better but the food makes up for it.

We ordered a sushi platter and a nigiri platter for takeout and I have to say that it was the best I've ever had. The presentation was beautiful and the fish was extreme;y fresh and expertly prepared. I look forward to going back to a visit.

I went to Cafe Sushi for a birthday dinner and was treated to a sushi experience like no other. I eat a lot of sushi and have experienced omakase experiences at other restaurants but the thought and care put into preparing for this chef's tasting was clear in every plate. The fish was exceptionally fresh and each course was well... More

The fish is clearly very fresh. The menu has a big variety of rolls and tasting plates. The salmon aburi is truly outstanding.
