I loveee this place, and it's so convenient if you live in Malden.
First off, best food for a fancy dinner/get-together. The portions are just right and the price is plenty fair considering how tasty it all it. The sushi is probably the best you can find in all of Malden, and competes against the big wigs in all of Boston in my opinion as well. The drink list is pretty wonderful and extensive as well, with a fully loaded bar. Also, I'd recommend coming on a Thursday-Saturday night because there's live music/jazz and the place feels very lively and welcoming.
The owner is incredibly nice. Sometimes, if you go in for late night drinks, Enrique of Exchange St. Bistro will be there since the two are close friends and they might offer you some free food if you make acquaintances with them! haha. That happened to me once, and it was one of the best nights ever and secured my faithfulness to both restaurants :)
Pros: best sushi in Malden, Thurs-Sat live music, full bar
Cons: lately they've been really anal about their tips...annoying!
