Awesome Sushi north of Boston - what's your vote?

We love Sakura's in Chelmsford. We also have tried Dynamite in Hudson, NH and love it too.

We're always looking for great sushi places.

    1. re: SuperGrover

      I agree on Takumi. I find that you get the best service and recs if you sit at the sushi bar and strike a conversation with the chef (when possible, occasionally the language barrier is too great).

    2. We did try that and liked it, we did a sushi recommendation special but was dissappointed - I think because they were playing it safe and we are more adventurous sushi eaters.

      1. You You is good too but the service is always so horrid I refuse to go anymore.

          1. Right off Exit 6 near the Kohls.

            1. NH? Rt. 3? Is this Nashua?

              1. Exit 6 in Nashua off the Everett Turnpike (Rte 3)--you know, where the state liquor store is. I like YouYou--they also have Korean and Thai specialites. The green curry is amazingly hot and the bibimbap is tasty.

                There was a new sushi place advertising in the Nashua Telegraph. I think it's located where Osaka Tea Garden used to be and they were offering "French-style" sushi--whatever that is.

                1. Hmmm, I'm not picturing it (you you), I must go by it a million times. In by Shorties? And we love Thai so that's nice but I really detest bad service - enough to keep away from awesome food.

                  1. It's right where the gas station is. It is kinda hard to find it unless you're looking.

                    1. Directions: Going north, get off exit 6. Make a left and at the first light by the gas station, stay in the far left lane and make a u-turn and a right into the business complex that's right next to the highway. Not as complicated as it sounds.

                      Actually, we've never had horrible service there. It's been a little slow sometimes, but nobody has an attitude.

                        I realize I am replying to two-year-old complaints, but ...

                        I've never had problematic service at You You. On the contrary, I've usually found it exceptionally attentive, and they always seem to genuinely appreciate your business. It's been one of my favorite places in Nashua for years. I can't speak to how "adventurous" the sushi may be, but I've never once felt that it wasn't fresh.

                        The ambiance/decor is also fresh and pleasant, and they have an array of other Japanese, Korean, and Thai dishes as well. I love their spicy tofu pad thai.

                        Etsogo in downtown Lowell also has fantastic sushi.

                        1. re: tunamelt

                          Keep meaning to try You You and we love Etsogo as well. They have some nice malaysian dishes.

                          1. re: tunamelt

                            Been to YouYou several times and sat at the Sushi bar. Never had any problems with the service and the sushi was very good. Ask for their popular and special maki's which aren't on the menu and the servers and sushi chefs are quite helpful. My daughter and I especially enjoyed the Red Sox roll :)

                        2. I agree, YouYou's service is terrible. I went to Yuki on S. Willow in Manchester this weekend and it rocked. They have a deal right now- 3 rolls for $9.99- it was fantastic.

                            I agree with you, Yuki is amazing with the sushi, and its Japanese grill is beyond wonderful. They pamper you from the second you arrive. If you like great service and even better sushi/tappan grill this is for you.
                            I am still astounded it is never packed in here, every time I went I was treated like a queen.

                          2. The sushi place that has moved into the old Osaka Tea Garden space across from the Pheasant Lane Mall is called "Red Leaf": http://www.redleafnashua.com/index.html
                            The sushi chef apparently worked at Nobu in New York and puts together some pretty avant-garde combos.

                            1. kewl, have to try that. We used to go to Osaka Tea.

                              1. Although I've only had the Korean specialties there, I like Dynamite in Hudson. They have what looks like a nice sushi bar, though I've never tried it there. Fwiw, I've been to You You a few times and never had a problem with the service. I like the Korean and Japanese dishes and tuna rolls.

                                1. We did Yuki in Manch yesterday, takeout. Very very good. Can't wait to back and sit. Very busy day at work, so it was eating on the run but very delicous. got this great creative Barbara Roll (tuna, avacado, wrapped in cucumber), hot tuna roll, spicy scallop with tobiko and a couple staples unagi and edamami.

                                  We have done Dynamite in Hudson for sushi, excellent - it's just not in our path of travel or else we would go more often. Very good. Very creative and fresh.

                                  1. Thousand Crane in Manch NH, Inaka in Lawrence

                                      i second that! Thousand crane is my fovorite place to eat ani believe has the best (and frankly very innovative) sushi. i know the owners and their sons personally. very nice people who work hard to keep the place running smooth. i recommend the Tropical Dragon special sushi and their various daily specials.

                                    2. macca on another board some time ago recommended Haru in North Andover and its good really good. I agree w Inaka in lawrence too.

                                      1. Hi

                                        Sushi Island in the center of Wakefield can't be beat. It is owned and operated by a sushi master from Japan and very authentic.

                                        1. Is that the one just off 128 across from REI and Division of Motor Vehicle office?

                                            No, downtown Wakefield right next to the Duckwalk, a great Thai place.

                                          2. Well, with another recent Boston thread on Sushi Island - I can't wait to hit this place. My most memorable sushi experience so far has been in Seattle.

                                            1. We had dinner at Morimoto in Concord NH last night. Wildy busy on a Saturday night, though we got right in at 6:30 (7 people!) with no reservation. The sushi/sashimi combination was very good--not terribly original, but fresh and nicely presented. The tako sunomono (octopus vinagrette) was delicious. Service was friendly and accommodating. Though not in the same league as Takumi in Nashua, it is a nice addition to the food scene in Concord.

                                              1. Funny, We must have crossed paths. We were running errands. Really wanted to do Hermanos but knew it would be mobbed, even ran into that bookstore there and commented on Morimoto (been there and we liked it too, very good and talented Tepankaki too if you want the whole package). We decided to go south and hit La Carrata (manch/hooksett) - big mistake - really mobbed. Went to Tinker's Seafood (next door) - fabulous seafood. Never been!! Lots of awards and they have a fresh seafood counter to go too and NO JOKE!!! FOUND MY SUSHI GRADE TUNA that I've been posting to find. It looked great, but I want to call back and ask the manager/owner. Kid behind the counter says its fresh every day-sign said "sushi grade tuna" and nice bright red.

                                                  Thanks for the heads up on Tinkers having sushi grade tuna. I had no idea..your post may cause a run on it! Do you remember how much a pound it's going for?

                                                  1. re: tunapet

                                                    I didn't, I'll be calling them sometime today. let you know the scoop if I find more details.

                                                    1. re: lexpatti

                                                      $8.99 per lb, spoke with Mrg. gets it daily from Boston (didn't know where but owner would know if call back later). It's yellow fin tuna.

                                                      steamers were awesome, usually only have that in summer. Had great fried oysters too. Great place, can't wait to get some tuna to try out a few new recipes that called for that tuna. Todd English's tuna ta ta has been on my list for ages............... yummmy!!!

                                                2. If you happen to be WAY north of Boston, say in Portland, ME, go to Sapporo in the Old Port on Commercial St. Very fresh and well prepared sushi and great service, too. I'm pretty sure their fish comes from Brown Trading Co., which is well known for selling the freshest and highest quality fish in the area (when we make sushi at home, we get our tuna there). So, Sapporo is the place in Portland, if you happen to be in town.

                                                    I prefer Miyake in Portland. It is by far the best Japanese resto in Portland Maine. Makes Sapporo look like any other Japanese restaurant.

                                                  2. We finally made it to Red Leaf in Nashua last night. It's in a strip mall next to Costco on DW Highway across the street from the Pheasant Lane Mall. The did an OK job renovating the former Osaka Tea Garden space--unfortunately they took out the tatami mat tables and replaced them with booths. We got there a little after 8pm and the room was already starting to clear out--the waiters seemed more preoccupied with bussing tables than getting us seated. Service was, shall we say, a little erratic throughout the meal--more enthusiastic than professional. They have the usual selection of silly martinis and tropical drinks, but strangely, could not provide a gin and tonic, because they had run out of...tonic! OK, now that I've gotten the whining out of the way, the sushi itself was excellent, possibly better than Takumi up the street. We started with monkfish pate with yuzu miso topped with black caviar and a few rolls--soft shell crab, eel, and the house (Tuna, salmon, whitefish, crabstick, avocado, fish roe). All were delicious, though the standout was the pate, which managed to be light and unctuous at the same time. We followed this with the chef's selection of sushi and sashimi, which arrived in one of those giant boats. The toro was so fine we actually ordered more of it. One other interesting item we tried was yellowtail collar, which was the meat next to the fish's spine, grilled and served with a dipping sauce--fishy and delicious, not for beginners. We finished with ginger and coconut ice cream--yum. On the way out, we talked to the sushi chef, who invited us to sit at the sushi bar next time and try some of his off-menu specials. In spite of shortcomings with the service, this place is a true sushi destination--highly recommended.

                                                      almost tried it Sunday night but La Carrata's wasn't packed and it was our first choice after getting back from Florida. We never got any sushi in Florida (even though there was a good one on my list in Naples to try) so sushi is high on my list to get that craving to pass. :-) Thanks for the review - maybe we'll sit at the sushi bar.

                                                      1. re: Dual

                                                        Couldn't agree more--and Tak (the owner) is both very knowledgeable and entertaining. Try the monkfish liver in season, and always request the real wasabi (I think it is pretty standard with their sashimi, but I'm not sure vis a vis sushi)

                                                        1. re: Dual

                                                          Yosaku gets my vote too! Although I hear the new Miyake is awesome, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

                                                        2. there is also Haru in No. Andover

                                                          and Sushi Inaka in Lawrence

                                                          for both i would recommend only going on a thursday night or early on friday night.

                                                          1. Lin's oriental grill on 28 in salem has a great selection of sushi...wonderful tuna!

                                                            1. I just had the spicy salmon roll from YouYou and it was totally awesome! That was good sushi. They get my vote.

                                                              1. We have tried nearly all of these places listed - here's our sushi-obsessed take:

                                                                Our favorites:
                                                                Sake, Saugus - not the best atmosphere but superior fish and our favorite, by far
                                                                Kame, Beverly- we would visit more often if it was closer
                                                                Yokasu, Portland - better than Sapporo, Ben Kay or Fugi
                                                                Bluefin, Middleton - consistent, comfortable
                                                                Sake, Portsmouth - same owner,same great fish, but they know us in Saugus
                                                                Oga, Natick - not North and quite out of the way for us but excellent

                                                                Other Options
                                                                Uni at Clio - not North, but every sushi lover should (save up and) visit at least once
                                                                Bamboo, Westford - nice atmosphere, good chinese if you visit with someone not comfortable with sushi (poor soul!)
                                                                You You, Nashua - we used to visit at least once a week, but the service from the owner and inconsistency in fish quality have kept us from there for several years
                                                                Inaka, Lawrence - convenient, in a pinch, when we lived closer, but consistently mediocre fish and annoying staff
                                                                Dynamite, Hudson, NH - we used to visit when we lived up there, recently heard they closed
                                                                Lins, Salem, NH - we were underwhelmed
                                                                Tokyo, Salem, NH - OK in a pinch
                                                                Sushi Island, Wakefield - only visited once but enjoyed it, had great service
                                                                Sato, Waltham - great sushi, Douglas is great! ( I heard the Stoneham rest. closed)
                                                                Mootone, Andover - only went once when it first open...it's very convenient if anyone has a recommendation!
                                                                Yokohama, Lawrence- fun atmosphere on a busy night, OK fish
                                                                Penang and Tokyo, Exeter, NH - only visited once, was good, regulars love the owners
                                                                Tokyo, Nashua, NH - my first ever sushi experience years and years ago, mediocre

                                                                  1. re: merrvally

So, if you had to chose between a special trip to Yokasu in Portland or Sake in Portsmouth, what's your recc? Also do you happen to know if the owners at Sake are Japanese?

                                                                      I guess I would say Sake for a special trip. I visited Yokasu about a month ago and was not as pleased as usual. We did, however, visit with a party of 8 and had a really bad (unknowledgable) waitress. Typically, we would sit at the bar...here or anywhere else.

                                                                      Even without that experience, I would probably still rec. Sake. The quality of their fish is consistent. I am not sure if the owners are Japanese...they may be tiawanese(sp) ...our favorite sushi chef there is from Taiwan.

                                                                      Also, saw that Sato II is, indeed, still open...so don't rely on any of my restaurant gossip reporting!

                                                                      1. re: merrvally

                                                                      2. re: qianning

                                                                        Sake in Saugus is also our hands down favorite. Portsmouth is also excellent. The owners are Chinese - now two brothers, separate ownership. Both were previously owned by the brother who now owns Sake in Portsmouth.

                                                                        1. re: qianning

                                                                          I frequent both places. I think Yosaku is somewhat better than Sake. Siitting at the Sushi Bar at Yosaku has a much better vibe than Sake. Yosaku tends to have more variety in their fish selection. The fish quality and portion sizes are comparable.

                                                                          1. re: GeoffD

                                                                          2. We went back to Red Leaf in Nashua last night, and though the sushi was very good, the service was so amateurish is was almost funny. There were only two tables seated at 7:00 (us and a group that was finishing up). The waiter did not crack a smile the entire time we were there--his language skills were so basic that ordering appetizers became a major negotiation. He was so overwhelmed that he said "I go now--you order main course later" and ran off. The appetizers came out in a slow progression, and once again the monkfish pate with yuzu miso and black caviar was fantastic. Thankfully, when it came time to order our main course, a more experienced waiter came to our table and took our pretty convoluted request. It took a LONG time to get our food--granted, hand-making sushi is pretty labor-intensive, but what do they do when the place is busy? The chutoro was delicious, and the sea urchin very fresh. We also had a couple of orders of the hamachi collar, which is a nice, fishy way to finish up. One last note: the ventilation system is not up to the task--the smell of fried food hangs heavy in the air.

                                                                              1. re: lexpatti

It is owned and operated by a Japanese guy who is also the sushi chef. You may not always find the largest variety of sushi at Sushi island but everything he offers is absolutely of the highest quality. Kenji-san was trained in Tokyo so he knows his sushi very well. He also offers a complete range of other Japanese food for those who are not sushi fans. The prices are also pretty reasonable and much better than most places in Boston.

                                                                              i will be checking it out a few weeks after it opens and i will post.

I grew up in NH but have been gone some long while now. There sure wasn't anything like a sushi restaurant back when. My how times change.

                                                                                  1. I have tried a few more places but we still keep going back to Sakura's in Chelmsford. They are consistently fresh and awesome service. Tonight they had lrg scallops as a special (just came in). Sooooooo sweet, we just got them naked, no rice. We've been in when they announced that they just received toro, sooooo good. Even their sides are excellent - we always get miso soup and edamame, sometimes this wonderful crab salad - then loads of sushi/maki. Their salmon is always wonderful, tonight we also go mackrel and sea bass and our usual unagi and a creative maki.

Kyotoya is BYOB and sushi is fresh and inventive. Sake is such a trip! I love the fact that they have such an extensive Japanese food menu, alongside their sushi. The interior is a hoot.

As I just posted on the Boston board, driving past the shopping center on 3A in North Billerica today, I noticed that the place that was formerly Feng Chung (and before that, Mandarin Buffet) is now Nana Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar. This is a fairly large restaurant, near the intersection of 3A and 129. Anyone been? With authentic CH-favorite Szechuan Gourmet and The Pongal, the wonderful new Indian place, 3A in Billerica is becoming something of a suburban dining destination, so I hope Nana has the same high quality.

                                                                                                1. Just had some amazing otoro at Takumi in Nashua--it was marbled like wagyu--sublime.

                                                                                                  1. Yama Japanese and Korean restaurants in Hanover, NH (Dartmouth College http://tinyurl.com/lkvjhv) and West Lebanon, NH (http://tinyurl.com/lto33r). It's all about the fish quality, freshness and how it's cut. Yama is excellent.

                                                                                                      I would agree, Yama is a wonderful place to eat! The fish is very fresh and the service is great. I would recommend sitting at the sushi bar and chatting with the chefs, they are friendly and do a great job. The lunch specials are well priced, an overall fantastic place.

                                                                                                      -----

                                                                                                      96 Main St, West Lebanon, NH 03784

                                                                                                    2. Who woulda thought... a sushi bar in Claremont, NH! Last time I was there, about three years ago, it was the Bistro Nouveau restaurant. Bistro Nouveau moved to Eastman at least two years ago and the place had been vacant since then. This week (Aug. 15, 2009) Kouzoku Japanese restaurant opened with a completely renovated interior. They have a black granite sushi bar, large hibachi table, new flooring and furniture. As with every Japanese restaurant I have visited in New Hampshire, the owners and workers are not Japanese.

                                                                                                      I wasn't really hungry, but was passing by and had to see the place and sample some sushi. For many years, my NH sushi benchmark had been Moritomo, in Concord. Then, about a year ago, I went to Yama for the first time and it was outstanding. Yama has become my new benchmark. Getting back to Kouzoku... the maguro (tuna) and hamachi (yellowtail) were fresh, top quality and sliced perfectly. Both servings were about the same thickness as Yama's, but about an inch longer. Like Yama, the sushi is not embellished with anything other than a bit of wasabi (green horseradish) between the fish and rice. Both seemed a bit dry compared to Yama's, and not quite as flavorful (probably the rice). However this was only their third day in business, so I'm thinking they could be a contender for "Ichiban" (Number one) as soon as they find their groove.

                                                                                                      A friend visited Oct. 9, 2009, and said, "I am not a sushi fan, but love hibachi bars. It was wonderful. Much better than Koto's in West Lebanon. I had the salmon and my friend had scallops. Both were excellent, plus they gave you two shimp as an appetizer."

                                                                                                      Kouzoku is at 236 Washington St., Claremont... across the street from VIP automotive supplies.

                                                                                                      1. What are the reports on Karma in Westford? A coworker raves about this place as the go-to place for sushi.

                                                                                                        1 Reply

Coming back home, we are always pleasantly surprised by how good the sushi at Moritomo in Concord NH is. Just take the main Loudon Rd exit, its in the shopping center across from LL Bean.

                                                                                                          Oh, hell of a lot cheaper than NY too!

                                                                                                          1. Is Takumi the best place to go for sushi in Nashua right now? Better than You You and Red Leaf? Thanks...

                                                                                                            2. A friend of mine took me to a very small sushi place on Rt. 1 North in Saugus. Maybe someone can help with with the name. It was on the Northbound side in the plaza after Carl's Sausage Kitchen with the Subway on one end and the wine store on the other.

                                                                                                              Owned by 2 brothers from Japan. The food was great, very reasonably priced and the selection was great.

                                                                                                              Don't know the name but would recommend it.

                                                                                                              1. Just had some very fresh and very tasty sushi at Little Tokyo on Maine Street in Brunswick, ME.

                                                                                                                    Have you tried that Tapas place just down the street - Ole Tapas? what did you see at MRT?

                                                                                                                    1. re: lexpatti

Was surprised at the quality of the production. Lowell is a great town--I need to explore it more.
