I go here about once a week because the sushi is that good. If you're seated in the back, like most are, it feels like you're in a Murakami novel, completely tucked away from reality. Service is great, very friendly staff, very accommodating, chefs skilled and hospitable. Quality of the fish is superb. Simple menu but more than you need.... More

Sushi is great. Always the freshest ingredients. The service is so familiar it could be misconstrued as gruff. Just order the Hajime special and you are golden

I have been to Hajime sushi restaurant late October. It was Sunday evening and I could parked my car at the station parking lot which is just hundred steps to be there. Sushi was a nice taste and the atmosphere in the restaurant is like a Japanese local restaurant, which I could be relaxed.

Fresh, good quality sushi. Recommended by a coworker and I decided to check it out on my way from NY. We arrived around opening hour on Sunday - yes, check out their hours of operation as the place is closed during the day on Sunday. It was pretty empty in the beginning but got packed by 7pm. The service was... More

Driven by raving recommendations, we went for a date night. Let's forget the poorly decorated place but our table was very close to other customers. Service was ok (even if they gave us another table's meal!) but the sushis were really not ok, with not enough rice, too much wasabi and not so fresh and not well cut fish...

I have eaten lunch here several times on the weekends. The place gets busy that is for sure. The food is consistently good and fresh. I think you should try it!

Let master Sam prepare sashimi for you. When Sam knows what you like he delights you with his wonders. Eel sunomo is delicious.

after our fifth visit we were convinced that "Sam" and his team were the superb sashimi, sushi and related experts! He will tell you the origin of every fish, some imported from Japan, and the way of preparing his ginger and the sauces. People come here from Manhattan and beyond. We came from Annapolis and it was worth the trip.... More
