I love this place! They have awesome sushi, and incredible non-sushi items for those who like the cooked stuff. =) Definitely give it a go!

Decent sushi on mid King. I usually go for the after hours downstairs where you can usually find a lively crowd with decent music and drinks. If you are up for it, dancing might even be on the menu!

This was a fun small local sushi restaurant. The selection was good and very tasty, the wine was great and the wait staff was more than helpful and friendly. They have trivia nights and I believe karaoke. I would definitely go back.

Managed a last minute reservation via OpenTable. The ambience was mediocre, but the food more than made up for it! The shrimp BLT springroll is pure genius! One hint: if you're going to have an aquarium as decor, CLEAN IT! My daughter counted 6 dead...More

Flying Fish is a rare fish place that succeeds across genres, balancing equally strong American, Southern, Asian and Mediterranean-style offerings. Grazing on appetizers - excellent soups, sushi and fish bites - offers an attractive alternative to a full blown dinner. Wine can be outrageously cheap...More

I went there while away on business. The Calamari appetizer was fantastic and the Mahi Mahi main course was very good. The service was very attentive and I enjoyed my meal without being rushed.
