An integral part of the Chinatown scene, this bright and friendly restaurant serves Japanese and Korean food. The sushi is quite popular with the young regulars. Other exotic fare includes noodle dishes, Korean soups like Tu Gae Mae Un Tang (clams and vegetables in hot and spicy stew), and house specials such as Tang Su Yook (deep fried shrimp, beef, pork, or squid with sweet and sour sauce). For those with the late-night munchies, "midnight special boxes" are available. The restaurant has a full service bar.
Bad Service Restaurant I ever been to. I ordered for to go on saturday afternoon. I was told that my order will be ready in half an hour. I waited in the car for 35 minutes. I came to pick up my order but it wasn't ready yet. A waitress told me they haven't do it yet. She gave me a signal that it's up to me if I want to wait. I asked her "So you don't want to accept my order?" She didn't say anything. So I left the restaurant and swear that I will never ever come back to this restaurant!
Suishaya is hands-down the best sushi deal in Boston. If you are especially looking for a deal, stop by for the lunch specials from 10am-2pm or the midnight specials from 10pm-2am. At these times, they serve great Japanese-style lunch boxes that come with tempura and salad.
Not only is the sushi very reasonably priced, it is quite good and includes such creative specials as "Red Sox Maki", "Godzilla Maki", and "Patriots Maki", which are as fun to look at as they are to eat.
The Korean fair is also quite good and comes with the 5 traditional side dishes. My favorite is the Bulgolgi Beef, which consists of marinated grilled beef strips served on a sizzling platter. I also like the thick cylinder rice noodles known as Duk Bo Ki. Duk Bo Ki was a little weird the first time (due to the intense spice and spongy consistency), but after a couple of tries, I started having cravings for it.
If you feel a little adventuresome, try the bubble teas, which are sweet creamy iced teas with chewy tapioca bits at the bottom. My favorite is the green bubble tea.
The only drawback is that Suishaya is located in Chinatown, so secure parking is non-existent (unless you are willing to walk from the theater district), and the area gets a little creepy at night despite the heavy police presence. So if you go late, dress down, stay alert, and travel in groups.
Also, once in a while (certainly not every time), you may encounter waitstaff with less than perfect English. So, if you are not patient, or don't have good cross-cultural communication skills, what are you doing in Boston? They don't call this place the "hub of the universe" for nothing.
