Best Sushi On The West Coast

Having lived in Japan, worked for a Japanese company in Tokyo and having a Japanese wife who is a gourmet chef; I know Japanese food and this place is amazing. Basically, it is a family run, authentic, Ginza-esque, hole-in-the-wall eatery with the best hot food and sushi on the west coast... read more

I enjoyed the sushi, glad we had a reservation, otherwise we wouldn't have been seated. The service started off good but our second round of ordering took forever. Other than that, good and affordable food.

Came here for lunch. There was no name on the door but the place was packed. Lively and vibrant - everybody was having a fun time. The food and service were great. I see a return visit (or two) in my near future.......

The quality and freshness of the fish here is amazing. It made the sushi experience a true delight. We let the server order whatever she thought we would like. Then we sat back and enjoyed fresh rolls and sashimi. A true delight. Don't come here expecting Vegas rolls and other similar "inventive" styles. This place delivered exactly what we had... More

It was so good. And so authentic. We were sitting at the bar, watching the chef preparing our food, everything was sl fresh and so good. Haven't had sushi that good in a while.

I set out on a quest to find great sushi in Seattle. It turned out to be surprisingly difficult. The overall quality of fish and preparation I encountered was quite high. Shiro had great tuna and maguro nigiri, Nishino had a marvelous California ambiance, Sushi Kappo Tamura was elegant ... but the selection of fish was alway quite limited, and... More

We randomly picked this restaurant among great choices in the International District and were not disappointed. There is no name on the building, but the line outside definitely was a clue. We had a 15 minute wait. We ordered various sushi rolls and a curry dish. Everything tasted very fresh and was attractively presented. The service was rather fast, probably... More

A Seattle business colleague reserved a table for us here - luckily for us! Tiny restaurant. Very delicious sushi. Even the Miso seemed to be more flavourful than the usual fare. As there were 6 of us - we had a variety of items. The Marine Roll was AMAZING! So fresh. Presented on beautiful wooden 'plates' too. Very friendly service... More

Call me biased because they are family friends, but no matter how many sushi bars there are in Seattle when we visit from Idaho we always stop in and are spoiled rotten! Quaint and comfortable, great service and the food is outstanding! Can't wait until the next time we can visit you guys! Ruth Nobuko & Monica send our love!

Line up early for the seating at lunch on Friday. Bring an umbrella if you have to. Look up the Address because the name is NOT on the door. There is a cool place to shop next door if you are with a friend and can swap waiting shifts. Tsukushinbo has famously good ramen. The broth apparently takes a few... More
