Don't miss our Late Night Ramen every Friday and Saturday starting at 11pm - it's first come, first served.


Trendy and chic, Uni has become a hot spot in Boston for inventive Japanese fusion cuisine.

Tucked deep inside the Eliot Hotel in fashionable Back Bay, Uni features a full menu of exotic Far East dishes and an extensive sake list that is unique for Japanese restaurants in Boston, MA. Recently redesigned, Uni delivers a hip atmosphere, while award-winning Chef Ken Oringer and his team create the freshest dishes before your eyes behind the open glass sushi bar.

The coziness of the 21-seat, modern-style dining room provides for an intimate and pleasurable dining experience.
The Boston Herald’s restaurant critic Matt Schaffer awarded four stars to Uni stating: “Oringer displays the same imaginative flair, commitment, quality and attention to detail that has made Clio one of America’s best restaurants.”  
Uni has received a score of 95 out of 100 on the 2009 Opinionated About Dining Fine Dining Survey, noting that Uni is "Worthy of Special Attention"!

Ken Oringer has brought Sake Bombing back to Uni Sashimi Bar at The Eliot Hotel on Sunday nights from 5:30 to 10:00. Guests are invited to experience the exotic taste of the Japanese alcohol and the fun of Sake Bombing.
