I found this by chance after walking from Kerry Park. A nice restaurant and family-run - it is popular with locals and along the main road plus the cute neighborhood with a great view of Seattle. The owner is very nice and the chef is great too. You can see them making the dishes and food is fresh + quick.

This place doesn't look very inviting from outside, but they offer very fresh seafood. I saw many autographs of famous Japanese people in Seattle such as baseball players, so I assume this is one of the best Japanese restaurants here. Sushi was good, but rice was a little too sour to my taste. I should have had sashimi instead. Other... More

We were staying in a hotel across the street and this was a recommendation from the bartender. Family and I made our way over and were greeted by the owner/chef. Once seated the adventure began. The chef trained was trained in Japan. The food was fresh, fresh, fresh. He of course had the usual selection and on the special were... More

While the building itself is not that exciting or even really nice for that matter, the food was good and the staff was very nice. Good variety of sushi as well as tempura, noodles, etc. The sushi was very fresh and they can even do blowfish, but you have to request in advance. Great find.

I agree with a previous reviewer. You could miss this place if you blink. We did not even think it was open. It is listed as the best sushi in the area, I hope not. While not bad, it really was not good, I ordered the sushi appetizer and a salad. The salad was the standard, However, I have never... More

I always return to this small, unassuming Sushi restaurant when in Seattle. The food is genuine and sometimes exotic, the sushi is the best I have had in Seattle. Service is friendly and they have use of a parking lot after 6. This is not sophisticated like Nobu, but the Sushi is better.

You have to click zoom several times to finally see this restaurant in Google Maps. We want japanese food and this is the closest in a rainy day. We almost missed it- located in a quiet part of Queen Anne. If this is all about the outside "curb appeal" well, this place would lose hands down. You would think it's... More

Shiki serves a limited menu of Japanese food. Service is friendly and every attempt is made to please but we were not impressed with the meal. Stick to the Udon soups and the food will be fine. Anything else is just disappointing. We've had better rolls in too many other Japanese restaurants. The fish just did not seem fresh or... More

I took my sister to this restaurant, because she is a Sushi connoisseur. She travels a lot, and wherever she goes, she searches for the best Sushi. I was delighted to hear her say that her meal at Shiki was her best Sushi experience ever! That is high praise. She and our friends agreed that it was incredible! They tried... More

We had read good reviews of this sushi restaurant, and could not have been more disappointed. The tempura was doughy, not crisp. The cooked salmon was fishy tasting and way overcooked. The sashimi was fishy, as well, with the raw salmon almost white & with the skin on each piece. California rolls tasted like mayonnaise and surimi (fake crab). The... More
