I always stick to sushi while here. I love that there are so many options with local/sustainable seafood. The sake list is also wonderful, although I don't consider myself a sake expert. The staff and chefs are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

We ate here during Seattle's Restaurant week. we ordered from the fixed menu and off of it. The sushi was well prepared and tasty, but small in portion size.

When I say serious seafood person I mean this - my husband and I went for the Valentine's Day set menu and it was an incredibly creative, inspired, talented, and sometimes challenging experience. My husband was slightly overwhelmed. I was delighted. It was pricey but for 3 hours and 6 courses the impeccably turned out fare was worth the spend.... More

The reviews of the food at Tamura had given me very high expectations of outstanding sushi. The prices only confirmed the expectations. This place is not cheap. The fish just tasted tired and I wasn't a fan of putting sweet potato in miso soup. I'm prepared to think they had an off-day (it was Presidents' Day after all). So many... More

I splurged a bit and went with a friend - ordered Omakase with a sake pairing... WOW. Every dish was expertly and artfully prepared. So fresh. So tasty. A generous six course adventure; each one surprised and delighted me. Even the dessert was magnificent. It was so good that we saved to come back and do it over again. One... More

I enjoyed sushi. Their fish are fresh, quality of fish is great! I had great time! But now, one month later, they made me very disappointed, I found out they charged more on my credit card. I wrote $70.28, but charged $75.76. Who does those tric? It's cashier/ waitress. I am Japanese. I don't think I was mean to them... More

Small, solid place near UW. A complete experience. Elegant décor, with a variety of textures: paper, leather, concrete, wood. Calm, friendly, professional staff. The cocktail menu is limited but imaginative, and the drinks rhyme with the food. Consistent food-- high-quality ingredients lovingly prepared. A great value-- high quality at a reasonable price. Go and let things unfold.

I don't usually get to eat sushi because the really high quality stuff is really expensive. A friend and I decided to splurge for a girl's night out and we were not disappointed. Sushi Kappo Tamura had the most tender, melt in your mouth sushi that I've had in a long time. Favorites: Neah Bay Black Cod Belly, King Mackeral,... More

Tamura has the best sushi I've eaten in the United States. My son and his girlfriend took me there the last night on a recent visit to Seattle. I live in Atlanta and I've searched out the better sushi places—they all fall short compared to Tamura. The access in Seattle to fresh fish daily is what makes the difference. I... More
