My husband and I came here because I was craving sushi. We just moved to West Seattle and had been blessed with great sushi in Ballard. This came very close to what we are used to! The sushi was really good and you get so much for the price! They do need more staff, however. Get in early for dinner... More

4 out of 5 is pretty much what it is. Good, not great sushi. Good, not great service. They probably need more staff. We sat at the sushi bar and our server came by only to take our order, drop off our food and give us the check. You're pretty much going to get one drink. In my case it... More

We came here for a dinner for two. Got seated at the sushi bar and ordered the Bento boxes which were the best deals on the menu. I ordered a 2 item bento box (chicken teriyaki and 3 piece sashimi)and my wife ordered the Azuma bento box (Salmon teriyaki and Katsu) which included tempura (shrimp & veggie) which we shared....

This was our fallback position when we found out our original west Seattle sushi destination was booked solid. How lucky we were! This is a mom-and-pop kind of place--small, nothing fancy, and likely several family members running the place. But the quality of fish more than made up for the lack of glamour. Due to the small size of the... More

We love Japanese cuisine and Azuma Sushi did not disappoint. Simple, good service and fresh food. The sushi was very fresh and tasty. The mixed tempura was well cooked. The bento box was very good. All very reasonably priced and prompt service. Definitely a keeper.

We had a good meal here tonight. We're on a journey to find our favorite sushi restaurant in Seattle so we tried this one. The staff was attentive and concerned if it was too cold with the door open for our young son, which was nice that they observed that. The sushi was good, but the nigri had wasabi on... More

We've been going to Azuma for several years and always have a good experience. Both lunch and dinner experiences have been great. The size of the fish pieces is above the average sushi restaurant. Service is good and the people are friendly and helpful. Owner/chef Harry likes to hear stories about gambling and casinos.

This is a rare little place that just feels like home. The service is friendly and the sushi is really great! I would go back anytime and try something new like we did on New Years Eve! I will be telling my friends about this for sure.

I've been going to this place for a number of years and unfortunately have seen the quality deteriorate a little. However, Azuma is still an adequate go to if you need a sushi fix and are seeking nothing special.
