I have been a customer of Inaka for over 10 years, but this was my first visit in the last few years as I moved away from New England. I was pleased to have the opportunity to go on my most recent visit North and it was every bit as good as it always was. I got two orders of... More

I've tried quite a few restaurants around the area and have yet to find sushi like the one at Sushi Inaka. I've been visiting their establishment for as long as I can remember and I must say the quality of their food has remained consistent over the years. Great

We had the New England maki, spicy tuna and salmon as well as the hot chicken and beef bee bem bahp. Everyone enjoyed the meal and we were all stuffed. The staff was very friendly and knows a lot of the guests. The decor is simple and the restaurant is very clean and bright. Their menu has pictures that help.... More

Prepare yourself for the lady there. She is the wife of the chef I think and she is not a people person. She has no clue of what customer service is. My husband and I normally get our food to go so we don't have to deal with her. We try to hard to be pleasant with her but she... More

The restaurant is actually called Inaka Japanese & Korean Restaurant, and since we just had sushi and Japanese food a few days before, we ordered all Korean dishes starting with scallion pancake as appetizer, and our regulars Kopdol Bibimbap (an order of beef and another of chicken) and Bulgogi. It did not disappoint. In fact we were so full we... More

I've only had a handful of dishes at Inaka but what I've had has been consistently good, tho a bit pricey. Their miso and udon noodle soups and oshitashi are great. Sushi is good but nothing special. Service is always decent.

Dinner was excellent as always, especially the bibimbap, which is served in a hot stone bowl. They also have great sushi and udon noodle dishes.

I'm a sushi snob. I've had the best and I've had the worst. Inaka in Lawrence is somewhere in the middle. I had the sushi regular combo which was 18.95. In other places this would have been $3 cheaper. The rice was a bit dry, and the cuts of sushi looked like they were done in haste rather than skill.... More
