I recommend the black cod and highly recommend making a reservation (I couldn't get through calling so I sent a text to their other number and got a reply). All the food was delicious. A couple next to us said they came in yesterday and liked it so much that they came again that next day lol

This was a great discovery for me. After reading multiple reviews in local magazines I have decided to give it a try. Parking is ample on the street and free after 6 pm. The place was packed. There are 2 bars . One upfront and does not have a sushi chef. You order the food from an older lady. The... More

My husband and I have a favorite local Sushi place that is amazing and also All-You-Can-Eat, so when we go out for Sushi we are most often disappointed. I must say that Maneki's has the most bang for your buck of anywhere else we have been for Sushi, and had really good flavor as well! Being a vegetarian, I only... More

Everything was delicious. Soft shell crab, salmon Rockefeller, rolls, all great. Service was pretty good. My only quibble was the hole - in - the - wall ambience. Boxes piled near the door, wasn't sure if it was open.

This is a venerable Japanese restaurant (on a steep hill) in Japan Town of Seattle. It is an izakaya-type restaurant which means they have sushi but that is not their specialty and they do not do fusion foods, causes for complaints in the very few less-than-stellar reviews I've read here. Oh, and one more criticism I saw was about having... More

If you are looking for authentic Japanese food, this is the place. This is not Pacific rim or any other Asian fusion. The restaurant has been in business over 100 years. You will need a reservation on most nights. The prices are reasonable. If you are in the Seattle area and enjoy Japanese food, this is a must. Good selection... More

The outside of the restaurant isn't much to look and we had to sit at the bar. However, the food was very good -- the sushi was delicious and the nabeyaki udon was savory and very good.

We actually were directed here by a server at Barnacles when we asked where do you go for sushi? Although the menu seemed extensive, we stuck with sushi and were not disappointed. Impressed with the price, quality and serving size. With so many restaurants to choose from, it was nice to be directed to an authentic Japanese restaurant frequented by... More

Great food, good service at amazing prices! We made reservations and good thing, because the place was BUSY! Everyone enjoyed the food from pot stickers to sushi, tempura to sukiyaki. We will be back and highly recommend this restaurant!

An izakaya style restaurant (and bar). A wide selection of dishes. We ordered a bit of everything from sushi rolls to takoyaki balls, tempura and teriyaki staples and the black cod miso collar. The only dish that was below expectation (first time having it) was the takoyaki. Would have preferred a firmer shell instead of the mushy texture that we... More
