Best place I have ever had for spider rolls and toro. The nigiri is nice, large, and thick pieces. A lot of rice though, but delicious. Honestly, I have never had anything else but sushi so I cannot comment on anything else. Get the spider roll no matter what else you order.

I'm so happy this restaurant is in my neighborhood. The food here is very authentic and price is very reasonable. I particularly like their lunch bento and katsu don.

I always know when folks stand in line and are mainly Asian I'm in a good spot. Lots of variety from tempura to sushi rolls, but I had the most delicious sea bass I've ever had here. $21 for just the fish, but I couldn't have been happier. It was perfect. Go early, they open at 5 and there's generally... More

We recently discovered the sushi bar at Izumi and it has become our favorite sushi place. Delicious, big size nigiri! Excellent recommendations from the chef. I have trouble convincing my hubby to go to any other restaurant these days.

Travel for a living. Love sushi - sashimi. Been in a lot of Japanese & sushi restaurants through the years. Shige in Boise is exceptional with a master preparing dishes. Izumi in Kirkland is better. Shito-San is a true master. Fish is always top drawer, preparation excellent. A true gem!!

I had sushi which was freshly made in front of me. It was delicious with big portions of tasty fish. The other plates I saw being made all looked great. Nice staff too.

First, I've not eaten at Shiro's or Jiro's or any really renowned sushi restaurants, but I have eaten at dozens of sushi restaurants around the world and this is amongst the best that I've had, especially in a very obscure strip mall off the freeway. Also, I can't speak to the dishes on the menu, as my son and I... More

I've been to this restaurant three times. I live in Central Washington and have come over the past two years for my birthday and one other time. The service is excellent, the sushi fresh, the miso and tempura lovely. We get there right when it opens and the people are already lined up. I do think there is one quirky... More

The ambiance was fine, service prompt and courteous and the price fair. The food was OK but not any better than you can have in most similar places. You will be neither disappointed nor amazed.
