Great sushi

We arrived here just before dinner time and was greeted well. The waiter coming with water and chopsticks was rude in his behavior. He slammed the water and chopsticks in the table, later on when he refilled the water he splashed it all over. Our female waiter was servicemanded, and our sushi chef... read more

We have been coming here at least ten years. Tonight was probably our last visit. The food was pretty much as we remembered, but the service was awful, worst of any restaurant in recent memory--and we eat out a lot. No check back, empty water glasses, plates left lingering on the table until I asked that they be removed. Sorry... More

The sushi was incredibly fresh tasting. We shared an assorted tempura that was excellent. Service was prompt as was the delivery.

My wife and I had been wanting to try sushi while in Seattle. We were staying in the Fremont area so decided to try Chiso based off the reviews and the location, which was within walking distance. We were not disappointed with our choice. This had to be some of the best sushi we have eaten, period. We had the... More

The six of us arrived at 7:30 on a recent Wednesday night with a reservation. Immediately we were seated. The restaurant was nearly full. After a reasonable time they took our orders, and then the wait began. We did not order anything complicated, mostly sushi and tempura. The first food arrived about twenty minutes later, but for only two of... More

Son was dying to eat good sushi and happen to hear about this place. Prices were good and we ate the unagi chirashi, butterfish, and shrimp tempura all of which were like a taste of home in Hawaii. We started with the Giza and local spot prawns which we devoted very fast. Place was casual but clean and cozy. A... More

I came here for happy hour with a friend and we tried several of the hors d' oeuvres and the sake. The service was good, but the food was average. It has the atmosphere of a fun place to come after work and feels intimate.

I've been looking for good sushi in the Fremont/Wallingford area for ages and never noticed this basement Japanese restaurant at the corner of Fremont Avenue N. and 36th Street until earlier this week. So a friend and I went back for lunch and are we glad we did that. We both ordered a variety of sushi and all proved to... More
