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

Got takeout and 10mins later I'm sitting on a picnic blanket at GasWorks Park on the water eating terrific sushi with a Million $ view! 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!

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

Our favorite sushi restaurant in Seattle. It doesn't matter which of the locations you eat at, it is always good.
