The Best Sashimi Dinner You can buy on a budget

Toyoda is a small Mom & Pop joint run by a small Japanese family, The Dad makes the sushi and sashimi and the wife and daughters serve the guest. This place will rank the highest for full value for money. We ordered one sashimi dinner between two of us and were served a platter of 4 to 6 pieces... read more

This is not fine Russian-style table service. As food is ready, it comes to the table, regardless of the order you'd expect it. So don't be surprised if an appetizer shows up between the main course and dessert. The food is good, the service passable, and the place is very lively. Great selection of sake and very fine sushi.

Toyoda serves really good sushi. Be sure to go early as the wait for a table can be quite long. I saw a review about better service at the bar, so we waited for the bar and were quite happy with our meal.

I've been going to Toyoda Sushi for about 20 years, for good reason. Hands down, they have the best sushi and sashimi in Seattle. And I'm picky; I'm from Japan. Their restaurant is tiny, and there is often a line to be seated, but it's definitely worth the wait.

Bit on the pricier side - should have realized that the restaurant does not cater to average diners when I notice the absence of "Bento" box specials on the menu. Went on a Sunday night for dinner - place was packed and we were in a rush - but happy to get our orders in timely fashion. Dinner for three... More

My husband and I visited Toyoda Sushi on a suggestion and ordered the sashimi dinner. It was both beautifully presented and melt in your mouth. I've never had sushi this good! I highly recommend sitting at the bar to enjoy watching the talented and humorous chefs.

Toyoda has delicious sushi in generous portions, served a friendly atmosphere. Always welcoming and entertaining the staff and other patrons are the best.

Been coming here for years, but have to say the place seems to be drifting down. The sushi chefs make some very nice sushi, and they do a good job attending to bar diners. But God help you if you want or are forced to sit at a table. The wait staff is totally disorganized, there is no such thing... More

We love this place! We always have great service even though the restaurant is usually very crowded. We have moved to Denver, and visit Toyoda every time we come back home. It's our favorite place to eat, hands down!

We have been going to Toyoda Sushi for years and the quality has been excellent the entire time. You need to go early if you don't want to stand in line. The menu is fairly extensive, the service is prompt and polite. We love the owners and staff at this restaurant. It is such a treat to go there!!
