My top Sushi place in USA

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... read 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.

I love everything about this place except for that they don't have too much space for people to sit down. They have good menus with good prices and lot of college students love to visit this place since they have such good prices

As a poor college student, I love to visit this place to get chirashi bowl from this place. It only takes 10 to 15 minutes if you take 44 from UW campus.

Really fresh salmon. Both quality and quantity were good for the price. $1.80 a piece of Nigiri, but it really a sashimi at some other place. Big piece of salmon on a tiny bit of rice. 10/10 would return.

We came back the 2nd night and there was a crowd outside waiting,but turned out only a 5 min wait. We had only sushi though we saw everyone eating the chirashi bowl special(we didn't... More

The Chirashi bowl (with seared salmon and tuna) is absolutely delicious. Although it doesn’t look like much on the picture, it’s a lot, enough to fill two tummies! And it only costs $15! Great price and quality. Highly recommended!

I was going to UW 3 years ago and this was the place where I was always going. Sushi here was super thick and enough to split it in a half to share. I will never forget that soft melting taste of sushi there. Recommend you to eat sushi here and then go to Molly Moon's which is just few... More
