Daikanyama is a relatively new sushi restaurant that opened in Lexington Center less than a year ago. It was started by Judy and Ming Chow. Before this endeavor, Judy Chow was a partner at Fugakyu Cafe in Sudbury. Her husband Ming Chow worked as a sushi supervisor at Whole Foods for seven years.
If I'm in the Lexington area, I like coming here for lunch because the prices are reasonable and the sushi is pretty good. Sadly, ever since I went to Japan and had the most amazing sushi ever, I have not been able to enjoy sushi in America as much as I did before.
Nevertheless, this place is a nice place to go for lunch, and I've never had to wait for a seat.
Here is the makimono lunch special, which is only $9.75
The sushi-sashimi lunch special is a good deal for only $13.75.
The sushi lunch special is also good, and you get to choose which maki you want, plus it's only $9.00. Here, my friend has chosen the Alaskan maki, which is salmon with avocados (yum!).
Green tea is free, and the ambiance is nice. On Sundays they only offer the dinner menu during lunchtime, so if you want to enjoy the good value of the lunch specials, go Mon - Sat.
