excellent sushi with unbelievable price1

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.

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 walked by the 1st night to Molly Moon ice cream and this place was crowded though there were 3 other Japanese restaurants on same block. 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
