I had a delightful lunch bento box of chicken teriyaki with miso soup, shrimp tempura and salad - a great deal in a delightful setting right downtown. Needham has changed a lot since I grew up here and this creative and excellent Japanese restaurant is an example of the new diversity in town.

We've tried several sushi places in or near Wellesley. They were listed on Grub Hub so figured we'd give it shot (although we hesitate to order sushi that's "delivery" because we prefer it as fresh as possible). We were very pleasantly surprised at how quick and good the sushi is. Our order is always accurate and they provide plenty of chop sticks and soy sauce. When delivered, it is packaged well (cold separated from hot). Every sushi roll we've tried has been very good - spicy tuna, tuna & avocado, unagi, dragon, etc.). Spicy kimchi fried rice is pretty good.

Six of us had dinner at Gari in early December. Two of us were familiar with Japanese cuisine and ordered for all of us. We couldn't have been happier with the choices.

Appetizers we sampled were Fried Oysters, Crab Rangoon, Seaweed Salad, and Dragon Eye. The Dragon Eye was spectacular in all ways. A ball of lobster salad on a bed of toasted rice with thin slices of mango covering the lobster. The presentation was beautiful on a white plate with splashes of a tasty sauce. All appetizers other than the seaweed salad came with an accompanying dipping sauce, none of which were the same. We ate every bite.

The main course included raw and cooked fish, all delicious. But the main attraction was the Messy Caterpillar described as "Cooked. Avocado, eel, cucumber, tobiko, unagi sauce with spicy kanikama salad".

Gari has a full bar and generous pours. I'll return to Gari next time I'm in Needham.

My wife loves the teriyaki salmon, and I enjoy the spicy kimchi rice quite a bit. We don't eat sushi, but when we have taken people who eat sushi to Gari, they have all liked it. We have gotten take out at Gari at least 20 times in the last 3 years, and it is always well prepared and as ordered.
