When I go, I usually pick sushi nigiri plate or chirashi bowl. Both of which are below $20 and come full of good quality sushi. I guess my favorite is chirashi bowl as they don't come with cooked sushi. If you are a real sushi enthusiast (and not just cooked sushi rolls), you can substitute the shrimps and other cooked...

Musashi is not what it used to be. The sushi is still very affordable, but the quality has gone down considerably. The sushi rice is really overpowering with vinegar and lacks sweetness. Most of the dishes like the sukiyaki bowl also seem to be made with less effort and carelessness. The one dish that seems to have survived the wrath... More

Great prices, great service, fresh sushi, but these days we opt for togo. There's always a line outside the door. Cold or not.

A hole in the wall giant among sushi places! Tiny cramped little sushi place, a bunch of 2 top tables and a 4 chair sushi bar. People were friendly, especially with the close proximity, get to know your neighbor! Small menu but they have good stuff as specials, ask the waitperson and be prepared for a goodly list. We ordered... More

Small, cozy with great mix of people you would expect to find near a University. The special was a great way to try several different pieces. They open at 5:00. By 5:02 all the tables were full. Seriously, looked at my watch. The tables turned over quickly so the wait wasn't bad. Love this place.

Price is very reasonable. The line is ALWAYS long though. Very limited menu for sushi lovers mostly. I have been there many times and I will go back again soon.

One word: CHIRASHI! To die for! Best chirashi i've ever tried in my entire life. Good price too! If you're a big fan of only one type of sashimi, you can tell them to make your chirashi only with that type of sashimi. I normally order the normal chirashi, but my friends always order all-salmon chirashi. Sounds legit? I know... More

Cheap, fresh, masterfully made. Musashi's is easily one of the best Japanese places in Seattle. They don't take reservations and the place is small, so be prepared to wait a little bit. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Musashi's has the best and most reasonably priced sushi in Seattle! Anytime I have friends/family in town visiting, I take them to Musashi's.
