New to the sushi scene in Fairfax, Murasaki is rolling up authentic sushi rolls while the kitchen sends out beautifully plated katsu dishes and ramen bowls. The perfect answer for locals seeking fresh Japanese fare, this Asian spot pleases all tastes with its miso and fresh sashimi.
Visitors who can’t quite fall in love with the idea of consuming raw seafood can explore the comprehensive tempura and teriyaki menus, or even opt for a hot lunchtime bento box. Guests say the fried calamari is crispy and enticing, and the chicken katsu is rich with flavor and topped with a distinctive homemade tangy sauce, while the miso soup could cut even the worst winter chill. The weekends to be quite busy and waits to sometimes run longer than expected, but Murasaki makes a fantastic quick lunch or no-wait quiet dinner choice during weekdays.
