Best Local Japanese

Shige Japanese Cuisine

After 25 years serving customers, Shige Japanese Cuisine is a downtown Boise pillar known for plating up sushi, nigiri and sashimi made with the freshest ingredients available. As one Yelp reviewer wrote, the food "nourishes mind, body, and soul." We agree.

2nd Place: Sakana Sushi—Sakana means "fish" in Japanese, and there's certainly plenty of that available at Sakana. With traditional dishes ranging from the hibachi and sushi to the more obscure nabemono (a Japanese hot pot dish), it's a mental journey to Japan with every dish.

3rd Place: Fujiyama—Fujiyama promises diners "the full spectrum of exotic flavors, textures and visuals," and spices up its sushi rolls with ingredients like pickled vegetables, crispy tempura, asparagus and eel sauce.
