15. Client Testimonials:

I was impressed with the quiet serenity of the place, the quick and attentive service, and the free fried salmon skin appetizer that appeared on our table while I was reading the menu. I had the Avocado Seafood Salad. It was a delightful, light, subtly tasty appetizer, which was exactly what I was looking for. My friend had sushi and sashimi, and said it was excellent. The prices are good, the quality is high, the staff is professional, and it's a lovely place hidden in plain sight.

As a bit of a sushi snob I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and presentation of Ponzu's sushi and maki.

I had the spicy salmon maki which was a great deal at $6 for 6 regular sized pieces, the volcano maki which was HUGE and very very good but the same price as other places I've been ($15).  You could easily split this between two people and be pretty satisfied with another small dish on the side.

Crazy maki also gets five stars and I think it was a great deal at $8 for 4 large pieces.

I will definitely be back!

After returning back to Mass from college I was taken to Ponzu by a friend who was shocked when I told her I hadn't had 'real' sushi before. Well I am so glad that she brought me here! We started out our meal with  miso soup. It was fantastic! a good amount of tofu and seaweed. We then ordered one of each the four seasons maki, tempura shrimp roll, philadelphia roll and the caterpillar. I discover that I don't like eel but everything else was amazing! The four seasons and shrimp are my favorite. we paid $26 a person and walked away full. I've also tried the California roll which is fantastic as well! since that first time I have been back at least three more times in the past month.

Since I first reviewed Ponzu, I have up-ed my attendance to about once  or twice ever week or so. It is a quick, easy, and consistently tasty place to grab dinner.

My favorite include the tofu with brown sauce (add cashews), the red coconut curry with coconut rice, the veggie maki rolls, the crispy bean curd with peanut sauce, the veggie egg rolls, and now the Malaysian Indian style noodles with veggies.

Although I have had several run ins with the head hostess... she doubled charged my card on three separate occasions... The staff is friendly and remembers your favorite dishes. Meagan N. and I have become VIP and even receive special complementary appetizers from time to time. Thank you Ponzu, for feeding me whenever I am too tired to cook.
