Best Dinner we had in Seattle for the BEST price!

I love sushi and make sure I find a place in every city we travel. This restaurant was one of the best I have found. The prices are extremely reasonable and the sushi was delicious. I wish we could have gone back! The restaurant is very small with only a few tables, but the wait is reasonable and... read more

We walked up to the restaurant and it was full. When we asked how long the wait would be, the server responded, "About 20 minutes." I seriously doubted her, but she was spot on, if not overestimating. We looked at the menu while we were waiting and one of the servers asked if we were ready to order. Uh yes,... More

Ever since I found this Japanese restaurant decades ago, I've hardly been to another one. The food is fresh and all hand made on the spot. There's nothing fancy but good food. When ever I go back to Seattle, I must eat there and they still accept personal check.

This small restaurant (a few stools at the counter and about nine tables) serves up fairly average food at bargain basement prices. I'm not a fan of the sushi here but was in the neighborhood at lunchtime today so decided to go in and try something else. I ordered chicken teriyaki on a skewer, mixed vegetables on a skewer, a...

Small restaurant with limited seating and parking, but the quality of the food is amazing! Just do take out and eat at your own leisure. The serving is generous with unbelievable low price.

Musashi is a very small place so good as long as a group is 4 or smaller. Expect a wait during prime times. Outstanding value for sushi and love the Hamachi Kama.

Brilliant and straightforward sushi. Large pieces of fresh, well chosen fish, rocking rice, fast service, and cheap. It's among the best stuff I've had.

This place is a gem. Don't let the long lines scare you, it goes fast! If you are looking for basic sushi with fresh fish this is the place. You are not going to find designer spider rolls etc... on the menu. There is no fancy restaurant. But the fish is fresh and the staff cares! I am an Alaska... More

Fresh local fish - great value and excellent quality. This is very traditional with Japanese owner and kitchen staff. Came for lunch at opening and a line was forming - worth the wait.

This restaurant is a well-kept secret. There is almost no street parking, the dining area is very small, and they are cash/check only. Given that, you will not find cheaper prices anywhere. Additionally, their portion sizes are huge and the quality of the fish is high. If you are doing take-out, it is worth the drive.
