Might Be The Best

This could be the best Japanese food restaurant in Seattle. This restaurant has been around for decades, and the quality must be the reason. The food is traditional and very reasonably priced. I will go back.

This is the place to get a table for sushi in Seattle. People make it sound hard to get in or something, which I have never experienced. You just call their number leave a message about your desired reservation, and she calls you back. Beyond that part, the food is truly soooo wonderful. It is not expensive, nor is it... More

We ordered all sushi and the fish was fresh. Best deals were $8 for order of toro (2 nigiri) and amaebi was under $6. Scallops and ika were just ok. Ordered the appetizer of scallops and mushrooms which were pretty good. Last call for ordering food was around 10pm (closing time 10:30)

As long time residents of the area who also eat more than our share of sushi and Japanese food we were pretty excited to finally be dining at Maneki. Our original plan was to sit on mats in the small traditional rooms but even calling a few days ahead we found that wasn't available. No matter, we ended up getting... More

Maneki has been serving traditional Japanese cuisine in the heart of Seattle's Asian community for more than a century. I live in Seattle and have visited Maneki many times. The food and service has always been excellent. The menu includes a wide variety, lists favorites and combinations, and the staff is very helpful in explaining alternatives. I favor the seafood...

If I read correctly Maneki has been around for 100 years? Mom and her daughter greeted us and they also responded to the text # for reservations. We ordered a sashimi selection and it was expertly prepared and fresh! A long time Seattle friend recommended and he was spot on. The location is in the ID or International District.

We went here for a friend's birthday. We got reservations for 8:30 and we arrived right on time and got seated promptly. It's a small place on a corner with a small area for seating plus tatami rooms. We had a nice tatami room to sit in with interesting décor, and anime style art. I was pretty hungy so my... More

We made a reservation here based upon reviews and that it has been in business for 100 years. The food was very authentic and we did not enjoy the meal. The dishes had very fishy tasting fish that was inedible to us. We tried to ask to create our own roll, just for the kids, but they do not deviate... More

I went there with a couple of friends and we had a reservation at their tatami room. This place is very good for friends drinking sake and enjoy some Japanese appetizer s. But, the food is mediocre and most of all my favourite unagi don is so disappointing. It was small in size and not freshly made. Tastes like microwave... More

Great small family operated restaurant with history. The service was average but the food outstanding. Had the tripe soup and eel sushi. Portions were very good. Prices reasonable. The three of us are till full on about 50.00 not including alcohol. Would return for sure.
