There are plenty of very interesting rolls - just ask for a recommendation. The venue is very clean and the waitresses are alright but don't expect many refills of your water - once you get your food you're on your own. This is definitely one of my favorite places within walking distance from Northeastern University.

My friends and I regularly eat here when we go go concerts at symphony hall and NEC. The atmosphere is calm, with some asian flourishes, but not at all stiff or overdone. My service was very fast, but still quality. I was surprised how good the sushi was the first time I ever ate there! Great variety on the menu and descent prices (one expects to pay a little bit for good sushi). I highly recommend it! Some of the best sushi in Boston.

I have recourse to eat at Symphony Sushi quite regularly, and I'm glad it there, since the immediate neighborhood offers little else of its quality. Everything I've ordered has been fresh and good, but especially high on my list of favorites are the salmon, rice and green tea broth soup (generous chunks of tender salmon fillet in a delicious and surprisingly delicate broth could often use more rice though), and the Maki Deluxe plate: three separate and equally exquisite rolls, one containing spicy tuna (with a wonderful crunch!), the second tempura shrimp with fresh crispy sprouts and peach (unexpected, but completely beguiling), and the third a simple yellowtail that serves as the perfect foil to its more complicated companions. I have a ritual when I eat this dish, carefully alternating between rolls in order to savor the characteristic flavors of each. They are so complimentary and yet so different in taste and texture, that I am always in a state of near bliss by the second round. Add a big can of Sapporo Silver to this, and you have something approaching a perfect meal!

I work in the neighborhood, so I eat here quite often. The food is good, and a good value. Not over the top, but perfect for lunch or early dinner. The lunch specials are popular, and there are quite a few to choose from. Try the curry pork or curry chicken bento! The noodle soups are great also, my favorite being the spicy beef variety. The service seems to have gone through a flux recently, it has been good in the past. Right now, the waitresses hardly speak English and often miss the "extras" on the order, such as forks, lemon wedges, etc. If ordering take out, be sure to have them read the order back to you, and check your receipts!

I really enjoy the food and the atmosphere is nice. It is very clean, and has an "asian" theam as would be expected. They do not have free refills on soda, but their food is reasonably priced. Their appatizers are preety big (especially the edamame), their rolls are averageish (6 pieces). Everything tasts fresh and looks fresh. Their desserts are also reasonably priced. Service was a little slower than I would have liked, but not so slow that it caused me to complain. With the ckeck you get a piece of gum which I think is a really nice touch. Over all it is a nice meal (not a "fun" experience, but a nice sububed meal).

This is pretty much the best sushi I have had in Boston. Great for take out. Mostly standard stuff. Rolls are not too creative for the most part but are high quality.
