Son dying to eat sushi on our visit to him at Udub

Son was dying to eat good sushi and happen to hear about this place. Prices were good and we ate the unagi chirashi, butterfish, and shrimp tempura all of which were like a taste of home in Hawaii. We started with the Giza and local spot prawns which we devoted very fast. Place was casual but... read more

I came here for happy hour with a friend and we tried several of the hors d' oeuvres and the sake. The service was good, but the food was average. It has the atmosphere of a fun place to come after work and feels intimate.

I've been looking for good sushi in the Fremont/Wallingford area for ages and never noticed this basement Japanese restaurant at the corner of Fremont Avenue N. and 36th Street until earlier this week. So a friend and I went back for lunch and are we glad we did that. We both ordered a variety of sushi and all proved to... More

The first thing you will notice about Chiso is that, like its surrounding Fremont neighborhood, it is decidedly unpretentious. The crowded basement space is minimally adorned, with family-sized tables and a bigger than average sushi bar. By contrast, the food is brilliantly prepared and elegantly presented. Start with the miso soup. Here, it's much more than a floury broth with... More

We were visiting Seattle for the first time and spent five nights exploring the various areas. Fremon is known for some unique landmarks and within a block of Chiso is the famous Lenin Statue that was brought originally to Seattle for smelting and somehow found its way here. Also less than two blocks away is the famous Troll Under the... More

Tues 4/23/13, 1:15: Chiso Restaurant/Seattle, Wa: Tried it on a expiring Groupon. Easy 2hr free street parking. Seating a long shape with good lighting, very nice roomy sushi bar, though waiter service a bit rushing, not experience. I counted 3. My selections: miso soup: gave a great start, nicely seasoned with tofu still somewhat crunchy, nicely touch with the added... More

Chiso is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant that also happens to serve excellent sushi and other Japanese food. The ikura nigiri is an example of how fresh their fish is; I am often disappointed at other sushi restaurants because I'm comparing with Chiso's, which is succulent and never squashed. Their hamachi kama is a yummy cooked dish for those who don't... More
