Decent food

Decent sushi joint with decent prices. Came in here a large group and they accommodated us quickly. No complaints with the service, but there are definitely better sushi places in Seattle.

The location is great, you're sitting outside right on the water with a view of downtown and space needle. Food is outstanding, big variety of rolls and of course sashimi. The yummiest salmon sashimi ever!

Went for a quick dinner and really enjoyed their special "Extra-Fatty Tuna". It is my favorite place for long time and their fresh fish will not disappoint.

Went here for lunch and was very impressed: reasonable prices, fast friendly service, a great atmosphere overlooking Lake Union, and last but certainly not least of all, wonderful fresh sushi. Will definitely return!

Although the chef is from Japan there are too many American inventions on the menu for it to be called authentic, but the lunchtime sets are impressive value at $15 and generously served. The miso soup was good and not out of a packet for a change, and the fatty tuna sashimi was a rare treat.

After reading the reviews, we decided to try this establishment. We loved it. We were able to make our reservation on line and we were able to sit outside.

Very taste and nice menu choices. Quite the busy spot for the hotels on the east side of Union Lake. Was nice to walk to and from hotel.

This place was set in a strip mall on Lake Union. There wasn't much of a view but the fresh sushi and sashimi were terrific!. Their spicy tuna mango roll was out of this world! Friendly staff too.

Quite a pleasant surprise! Everything we ordered was delicious and appeared to be freshly prepared. Our favourites if that is possible given the huge number of choices were the crab and avocado spring rolls as well as the Lake Union rolls which had shrimp tempura, crab salad, avocado, ginger salsa and albacore tuna. The presentation of the food was beautiful... More

Was hungry and walking around found this place. Waiter was nice and recommended me couple shrimp rolls, with a cold beer. Think it's a little bit expensive, but is a very nice place where you can have a really good time with great sushi rolls!
