The food here was great; I've been to the FuGakyu in Brookline and it was fantastic. There were some things, however, that were a little disappointing. Let me just first say, the environment was great. We arrived before the rush during the weekend, so the atmosphere was quiet. My friend and I used one of the booths that closes - great touch! The individual who seated us was fine, very friendly. I'm not one to judge, or to hold grudges, though I felt our waiter was having an off day. He did not seem at all excited, gave us our menus and left. We thought little of it. A little while later he returned, took our order with an aloofness and little excitement, and mumbled enough that I couldn't figure out if he was agreeing with me or asking me to specify what I wanted. His overall behavior was odd enough that my friend and I picked up on it and glanced over at each other. Fast forward to the appetizer - it was good, we ordered the vegetable kushi-katsu. I was a bit disappointed it was *only* fried zucchini, as other places have garnished it with onions or other vegetables. Before we were finished eating, our waiter came back and took the plate away while refilling our water. We didn't notice as it was happening, but it was disappointing as there was little reason to finish eating the appetizer without the sauce! The entrees were excellent, though we felt the sushi could have had more presentation (for this being a pricier restaurant). The waiter checked on us twice in 15 minutes, so it was a little disruptive, but still a nice dinner. It took a little while for us to get some attention to process our check and to get our check, and the waiter initially forgot my food that I requested to take home (a simple mistake I suppose). Overall, decent experience, but I do tie enthusiasm of the staff and presentation of the food into the price of an expensive restaurant. I'll probably eat here again, I just hope the servers are as excited to be there as I am. =)
Nice private room
We had a large group of 12 people and reserved a private room. The room was great, only downside is how loud it gets in a small room with 12 people all talking at once! Food was great, drinks were delicious. Food is priced high but quality is excellent.

Amazing. Great food & the waiter suggesting a boat to share all of our choices was a wonderful idea (& really worked out!)
Not worth it
We were there at 5 pm so the service was fine. I emailed ahead since I have a gluten sensitivity and was told I would have options. When I arrived I actually had very few options. I stuck with some basic sushi. My husband ordered a steak medium and it came medium well and wasn't really a good cut of steak - gristle - hard to cut. The prices are high for the value. I'd rather eat at Oyes in Reading or Sakura in Wakefield.

Excellent service and delish sushi though pricey.

Amazing food & great service!
Friendly server but HORRIBLE otherwise.
Although we were seated promptly everything else went downhill from there. Upon being seated we placed our drink order. Approximately 45 minutes later our drinks arrived. The server apologized but to wait that long was ridiculous. From there, when entrees were brought out, one in our party had to wait ten minutes before their entree arrived. After entrees were all brought received, we realized that server never brought the soups that came with our meals. Once again the server apologized and brought them out but come on!! Prices are not reflective of either quality of food or service. I did complain to manager when we were leaving and had the feeling I wasn't the only one who had done so. I also ran into a friend who was also having dinner there and they were not pleased wit their experience either. I will not be returning.
Love this place! Food was really good and waitress was super nice and attentive. Will definitely be going back!
Wrong place, Wrong time?
Disappointed. Restaurant was empty and quiet. The two drinks we picked from the Special Drink menu were unavailable. The kumomoto oysters on the menu came out as a COMPLETELY different kind of oyster. The service was so unfortunate. Not that it's an excuse but maybe our waitress was newer? We were left to wait a long time to place our food order. Our food arrived pretty quickly but in the middle of eating our meal, we were told it was last call. So we said okay thanks. Then an unexpected last minute diner joined our table after the last call announcement and the restaurant was still able to accommodate his quick order so I was grateful for that. However, we made the mistake of not asking last call for what. We thought it was last call for the bar or last call for sushi. But then after we were done with our meal, we asked what there was for dessert and then we found out, last call meant it was for EVERYTHING. Then we asked what kind of dessert was on the menu and we were told, "I don't know the kitchen is completely locked up and I can't look". As we left, we asked the host at the front desk, what was on their menu for dessert and he let us know the selection and let us know that the kitchen closes 30 minutes before the restaurant closes. Again, maybe the waitress was newer and didn't know how to answer our basic questions but it felt more like she didn't care much to make any effort. Beware that you won't be able to get food 30 minutes before closing. Maybe they should change their operating hours to reflect the kitchen hours. Other places serve food until their closing times so it's a little misleading. The sushi was good quality though and my friend said the ramen was pretty good so it wasn't a total waste of an evening.
Need to upgrade Chopsticks
My husband and I went on Saturday at 5:15 for his birthday. We have been to the Brookline store many times but have wanted to try this new location. It is in an outlet mall so parking was free and easy to find. They gave us a semiprivate room with sliding doors, so that was nice, probably because we were so early and had made a reservation, but nevertheless it felt more authentic. The French Rose wine that we wanted (there are 2 on the menu) was not available, but we substituted a very good French white. We ordered seaweed salad and it was very good, also an excellent hot appetizer of sea bass with sweet miso sauce. For the entre we ordered an assorted sashimi plate that was plentiful for the price, and the fish, especially the salmon and tuna, were nice big slices and very fresh and good. The green tea ice cream was really good and came with a surprise which we enjoyed. Our server was a young girl, very friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing that surprised us was that they served thin wooden chopsticks that you can get at the cheapest Chinese restaurant. And to make matters worse, after our appetizers, we were not even given a new set. I was not very happy about this, and feel that a restaurant of this caliber and style should be using much better quality chopsticks. They really need to upgrade this aspect of their presentation and service. I would go back again, especially when the weather is warmer so we could walk around the shops after the meal.

Be sure to explore the maki roll selection beyond the typical go-to items like spicy tuna and California rolls. There is much more to the menu! The scorpion roll was especially tasty.
Love at first bite!
From a foodie herself, I highly recommend this place just because the sushi is on point and their booths offer privacy doors (which is awesome, making things a little more romantic!). The prices are somewhat fair and equal to the quality of their sushi, the only thing I recommend to the restaurant is slightly bigger portions. It wasn't a deal breaker for me but something I did notice compared to other restaurants I have been to, quantity should overpower the price just a little! It brings customers back more and more, getting the bang for their buck. I also loved the fried ice cream, it's my dessert go-to! Just a little smaller than what I expected, but not a big issue for me! All in all, this place is great and will be my sushi go-to given its right down the road! Another plus is that it's in the mall, so it's nice to go there for a bite after shopping for a few hours.
Dinner on New Year's Eve 2015
My close friend met me here for New Year's Eve the other night, we had reservations for 8:15pm. I made the reservations last minute online at Open Table and we were lucky there were still tables left. Overall we had a nice time, the food was good and the service was decent. We wished we'd booked earlier that day or a previous day as the cool booths with privacy sliding doors were all taken, but we were still pleased with the available table we got. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends & co-workers.

Great Sushi Spot
I have been to their location in Brookline, which is great. I love this new location in Lynnfield in Market St. If you are in the mood for sushi, this is a great choice. Excellent food and service.
We went here after my husband got off work. He'd been in before for lunch, but I hadn't. Great looking restaurant (lots of outdoor tables in the summer), very friendly service and delicious food. We had the pork gyoza, sashimi appetizer and three rolls (spicy tuna, spicy yellowtail and scorpion). This definitely was top among sushi restaurants in the greater Boston area for us so far - portion size was very fair and prices very reasonable. We'll be back!
Authentic Japanese Cuisine
If you want authentic Japanese cuisine at a high level of quality, go to FuGaKyu. I met a college classmate for lunch. He ordered a bento — a lacquered box with the meal in compartments — and I had the sushi & sashimi plate. I've visited Japan six times, and all the food at FuGaKyu, from the miso soup through the main course to the sectioned orange, looked and tasted as I would have expected in a fine restaurant in Japan. My classmate enjoyed his salmon teriyaki and all the accompaniments as well. Service was flawless, prompt, and attentive. The decor in the area where we were seated is modern — shiny and angular, the result of being located in a newly constructed building in a new outdoor mall. You wouldn't mistake it for 18th Century Edo, but they've done what they can to make it attractive with Japanese elements. There are other areas where the ambience may match the authenticity of the food. so I'm giving it a "very good." The location is also convenient — adjacent to Rte. 128 (I-95, for you out-of-staters) in Lynnfield. So the place to go for Japanese food in eastern Massachusetts is FuGaKyu. I have no doubt the Brookline and Sudbury locations offer equally excellent dining.
Having been to Fugaku in Brookline many times, we were excited to try the Lynnfield restaurant. We were with another couple who don't eat sushi so we were a little worried about that but there were plenty of cooked items to choose from. I saw mixed reviews on line so I was a little nervous but our sushi was delicious, everything we ordered was fresh and looked great. On the other hand, our friends, who ordered entrees from the kitchen, were very disappointed. The steak teriyaki was ordered medium and came out well done the first time, rare the second time and finally cooked properly the third time. Of course we were almost done with all of our other meals when she finally got hers. The other cooked meal was ok but certainly looked like it wasn't worth $30. Prices overall seem a little high.
Quality for the price wasn't on par
I've eaten at many local area restaurants, the sushi here was slightly above average, but the appetizers and entrees were average at best for the cost. 2 rolls of Maki, 2 appetizers and an entree, with 1 draft beer came to $70, and the sushi was the best part of the meal. Our server was great but didn't ask if we wanted actual silverware. (I am proficient with chopsticks but my girlfriend is not). You could get a better meal at the Mandarin Reading for 1/2 or 2/3 the cost.
Our favorite place
Our kids love the "closed" room. We always ask for the booth and have the door closed. My girls (4 and 5 yr old) loves Fugakyu. It was my daughter's first day of kindergarten and we asked her where she wanted to go to celebrate, she asked for Fugakyu. My younger daughter has peanuts allergy and I know everything is safe for her which is so nice.
Love the booths with the doors!

Amazing dining experience
We have been to Fugakyu several times and each time has been a great experience. The food, atmosphere and service combined makes for an amazing dining experience.
why be open late
hours said they were open late we got there and the stools were up with the exception of our table. it was so uncomfortable that we left without even eating.
Best sushi in the area
We tried this the other night and have to say it was some of the best sushi we've had. Great service and location too. Can't wait to return.
Although it is usually quiet when I come here, I am always greeted with a smile and great service, especially by Diane and Cat!! The sushi is delicious! They have some innovative rolls and the lunch is a great value!!!
Excellent food and personable waitress
The food was excellent and the waitress was lovely. Unfortunately, a young family with an overtired and persistently crying baby was seated right next to us and the parents were not considerate enough to remove the crying baby. We will return to experience the dining expereince when we are not trying to rush out of there.
The food was great. Sushi was amazing. It was expensive so not an everyday place for dinner, but will definitely go back.
High quality is Lynnfield
Excellent , fresh, trustworthy quality Japanese in the suburbs. I went because I enjoyed the Brookline Fugaku and I wasn't disappointed. The lunch portions are very generous so go hungry or share.

Second time not impressed
My sister really wanted to go to FagaKyu for her birthday after I told her how great it was on Valentine's Day. We went and we had a party of 6. Instead of placing us in an open area they placed us in one of the boxes. They are just that extremely cramped and claustrophobic boxes. There are vents over head that amplified whatever anyone was saying. Our waitress came in and yelled so loudy it was awful becuase my parents had questions and although she was knowledgable everything needed a story and it was all turned up to 11. So if you get a southern waitress ask to move to a different waited area. She spoke over what people were ordering so she brought my sister the wrong thing on her birthday... Needless to say I did a lot of explaining afterwards that that was nothing like the experience I had on my date 2 weeks before. I'll keep going back but I dont think it will be with her.

Food and service was great. Might want to consider turning up heat, it was freezing I kept jacket on the whole time
Fugakyu was amazing!
We dined at Fugakyu in Lynnfield (Market Street) on Feb 14th. (We were actually there to celebrate my daughter's birthday, not Valentine's!) The service was fantastic. The waitress was very patient and answered all of our questions regarding the menu. Her recommendations were so good! The food was perfect. The Makimono and Sushi were very good. Our entries were also beautifully prepared, presented and tasted fantastic. I would definitely go back and would recommend this restaurant to others. No complaints at all.

Very cool! We sat in a private booth! Sushi was amazing and fresh. We got the hot pot and that was really delicious as well. Great experience!
Not up to par
Horrible service. Food was supbar as well. Desserts even lacked taste. This location is nowhere near the quality of the Brookline one. it was dead in there on a Thursday night. I'd be willing to bet that this location will be closed with the year. I would never go back.
Great Food, Poor Service
My family went there for New Year's Eve. The fs gportions (especially appetizers) were very small given the high prices for each. The biggest drawback was the service - very poor. We waited almost 15 minutes before someone even acknowledged our group. I asked 4 times for a fork before one was provided by one of the bus boys. Given the high prices I expected much better service and bigger portions. With so many other options at Market Street, we won't be back.
Sushi was excellent, as expected.
Sushi was great, enjoyed the booths with privacy doors, came in handy with a louder family of 4 next to us. Sushi was fresh and very flavorful, and great choices. Will surely return.
