The place is located near the port. You can sit both indoor and outdoor. You can enjoy the view and sun light during your meal. The reservation is required. The service is good. The taste of the sushi is great and fresh. My friend recommended me this place and i think it's really worth the price. The parking space is... More

A good friend of mine took me to this restaurant. He had lived and worked in Japan for many years and this is his favorite place in Seattle. We spent an evening catching up and enjoying whatever the Itamae created for us. He was very specific with certain offerings that we only use the sauce he had prepared for that... More

A small group of us went here for sushi, sashimi & sake. The location was nice, rift on the water, watching the float planes taking off. The service was ok; very polite but disorganised. (We kept asking for ginger but it never arrived.) The food, though, was sublime. We had squid, then salmon & tuna steak sashimi, a golden tofu... More

We ate here 8 years ago and this was one of the things that my husband and I were most looking forward to on this trip. We were both highly disappointed. Don't get me wrong the service was great. Summer our waitress was very knowledgeable and very sweet. However the food seriously stunk! When she saw that one of the... More

Outstanding & fresh nigiri (tuna, salmon, yellowtail, eel, etc.) and excellent rolls (spider, rosanna, rainbow, seared salmon, etc.) HINT - ask for a side of wasabi aoli! My wife is gluten free & you can... More

This was possibly the best sushi I've ever had. Everything was exceptionally fresh and beautifully prepared. The service was also very professional and extremely quick.

Just great fresh sushi! Everyone in my party found the sushi amazing! The Magma roll was a highlight and reorder, although the crunchy roll was a winner as well. Execution even on the everyday California rolls was above par. Service was a little slow, but hey, it was a Saturday night and they were busy. A little more attention and... More

Great sushi stuck away from the hubbub. Very fresh and delicious. A bit of a wait for takeout but good value for Seattle prices.

This is my husband's favorite place for sushi! The service is always outstanding and the food very fresh! We usually sit at the sushi bar where we get our fill of sushi! This restaurant is located on Lake Union with a great view of the Space Needle!
