Sushi near the Boston Common Loews?

Pre-holiday date with the SO tonight: dinner and a movie. Where might we get tasty sushi within a brisk walk to the movie theatre, given that the show starts at 6:45 and I'm off work at 5? I work near the green line Arlington stop and was thinking we'd just pop over to Newbury for a quick bite at Shino Express (I think it's called...) and then a walk through the garden and common in the snow. White Christmas indeed.
Thanks in advance!
That area of town is actually a sushi wasteland. At one point in time there were plans to open a sushi place in one of the storefronts of the Ritz Boston Common but I read that the residents nixed that idea (I guess they prefer vacant storefronts that have sat empty for 5 years). Your best bet is probably the Ginza in Chinatown which is about an 6-7 minute walk from the Boston Common. FYI, Shino Express is not the best place to eat in. Also, while I would certainly call it affordable sushi, I personally think calling it tasty sushi is a bit of a stretch. Finally, while I haven't been there in years since I lived in the neighborhood, I used to eat often at a place in Chinatown (on Beach St, I believe) called Suishiya (sp?). Perhaps someone has eaten there recently and can chime in.
