After my son picked me up at the airport, it was a race against the clock to make it to Musashi's before their lunch closing time at 2:30 pm. Thankfully arriving late ensured that there was no wait time and we were served promptly. The Chrirachi bowl has a good amount of sushi for a decent price and is served... More

Our visiting family enjoyed a diverse, fresh and unique dinner by just ordering Chef bowls and the Chef sushi. Fabulous and fresh. Flavors were complex. It was a tiny bit crowded and we felt the staff were hurrying people in and out. It made for a rushed dinner. We would have preferred to be able to savor each dish.

Musashi's is a hidden gem of a sushi place in the Wallingford neighborhood in Seattle. The chrirashi bowl is your best bet for a good amount of sushi (~20 pieces) over a bed of rice for an affordable price. Their rolls are all simple, but they satisfy. If you go at a popular hour, expect to wait. Their takeout is... More

I had chirashi bowl, which was one of the icons of this place, for my first visit. Fish was fresh although not of outstanding quality. And the rice underneath was flavorless, which was its largest drawback. It's really cheap so I guess I can't really expect too much. However, there were people telling me that this is one of the...

This place is small but worth the wait. We came for one thing and one thing only: the Chirashi. It is a bowl of rice with sashimi on top, salmon, tuna, shrimp and such. I highly recommend it.

Great, fresh, delicious fish. Of course wait time is almost a must). As good if not better than the Factoria offshoot. Highly recommended.

Try chirashi bowl period. It's really good and fresh and cheap for the quality and portion of the food. Be sure to bring cash! They accept cash only

Very very small restaurant but excellent sushi for a very reasonable price. Quick and friendly service, always fresh fish, and good tea.

I'm a frequent visitor to Seattle (kids live here). No visit is complete without lunch at Musashi's on NE 45th Street near Stone Way. Musashi has been there a long time, since before Wallingford got trendy, I'm sure. There's seating for about 25, and always a line waiting outside at lunch and dinnertime. OK, to get to the point: this... More

The line moves quickly. They take your order while you wait in line and you're seated as your food is served. The price is fair and the food is outstanding. These guys KNOW how to prepare famously good sushi. I love this food.
