Aside from being the greatest piano ballad ever written, chopsticks are the favored instruments of the world’s most skillful eaters. Practice your forkless feasting with today’s deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and other pan-Asian cuisine and drinks at Ma Soba in Beacon Hill. Its moderately upscale atmosphere and well-prepped lineup of meticulously prepared cuisine placed this establishment as one of the best sushi restaurant in 2006 by Citysearch. Use today's Groupon to introduce a few soy-sauce heads to this well-respected house of sea rolls to earn mad sushi street cred.

The menu is stuffed with 53 different maki rolls (including baked and tempura rolls), ikura and hamachi sushi, and Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and Korean favorites. Regulars love the ninja roll (albacore tempura, crab and avocado, $10.95), the disco shrimp roll (layers of baked shrimp, scallops, spicy crab and avocado, $12.95), or the nonexistent roll roll (sourdough roll, kaiser roll). Order a roll for everyone at your table including the guy who just followed you in because he thought you were Frodo Baggins.

The exceptional, fresh, and expertly cut raw-fish specialties are served in an airy, light-filled dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows, wood chairs, stone floor, and rich red tablecloths. Every level of the multi-tiered sleek sushi spot feels open, especially in the summer when the restaurant slides away the glass windowpanes, removes the roof, and dismantles the walls. A sparkling wine cabinet displays Ma Soba's sweet plum wines, and it stocks a huge selection of imported Asian beverages such as Kirin and Sapporo beers. The expert servers can tell you which liquor goes best with which entree like tofu and Chinese eggplant stew ($13.95) or mango beef with Kahlua and bean noodles ($15.95). Parking is just $5—a time-saver when you're dining in Beacon Hill or need to make a quick exit after dinner to fulfill your obligation to plant at least one apple tree per day.


Citysearchers named Ma Soba one of the best sushi restaurants:

  • This was, by far, the freshest raw fish I've ever eaten...the fish was DELICIOUS. My white tuna just melted in my mouth; the salmon was so buttery I almost went to heaven, and the veggies were fresh. What a treat!!! – k1peters
  • What incredibly rare service! The sushi was unbelievably fresh and variety resulted in a harmonic balance of freshness+flavor+texture, that pleased even the most finicky of pallets [sic]…They really offer something for everyone, even one of my friends who doesn't eat raw fish got a good fill of delicious non-fish rolls. – jwong83

Ma Soba has also earned 4.5 stars on Yahoo! Travel:

Ma Soba

A banner printed with tiny white fish flutters above Ma Soba's sushi bar, where chefs in pert white hats tuck ribbons of fish atop rice and seaweed. In the kitchen, stovetops sizzle with Chinese, Korean, Thai, and other Asian dishes, such as bulgogi, tempura-battered seafood and vegetables, and entrees spiced with chili-and-ginger general tso's sauce. Wine and water goblets moor maroon tablecloths in the softly lit dining room, where potted orchids and bromeliads complement a Japanese screen painted with branches and cherry blossoms. Ma Soba also packs entrees into tidy containers for carryout and delivery orders to offices, homes, and tree houses.
