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!

For many years, my spouse and I have travelled to Seattle every Christmas,for 4 glorious days in the city. Since our families are two states away, this has become an annual ritual for us, and one that we look forward to every year. One of the dilemmas of Christmas in the City, or almost anywhere, is trying to find a... More

After reading all the local reviews, thought this should be THE place for sushi in South Lake Union. Admittedly, I only had sushi take-out from here and did not get the whole dining experience. With that being said, the sushi was a little on the high-end, though not obscenely so, more in the range of a fine dining experience. Unfortunately,... More

We had dinner here after a lovely day touring wineries. Just across the street from our hotel on Union lake. I enjoyed vegetarian bento box. Everything was fresh and tasted wonderful. My husband had a seafood bento, and stated everything was well prepared, and very tasty. The service was prompted and friendly, as well as helpful

Sushi was great - just too many options to choose from! I ended up going with some of the specials and they were delicious. The location is great - right on the pier with a great view of the space needle.

Excellent sushi and lots of diverse rolls. Menu has choices for those who want cooked fish and lots of specials each night. The drinks menu needs work. I sent back the Mandarin Martini. The raw orange rind taste was not a compliment to the alcohol, very acrid.
