Neighborhood sushi restaurant. I appreciate that the service, food, and experience is consistent. Simple and straightforward. There are plenty of regulars who the owner knows and it has a friendly vibe. Families - large groups - couples - or sitting solo - it works for everyone. We like the table for two by the front window to people watch. Low... More

This is a peaceful tranquil place on Capitol Hill. Unfortunately the sushi was not very good. If you want a nice quite place to chat but not eat all that well, this is it.

A Japanese friend recommended this place and we could see why. Delicious sushi, friendly service, and nearby to Cornish College.

Aoki has been one of my favorite Japanese restaurants for years. The sushi is very good. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service is very good. I also love their miso soup and tempura.

Aoki is our go-to favorite for lunch on Broadway. Always reliable salt-broiled saba, served with miso salad and rice, $10.50. Also for Donburi with chicken $9.50, miso extra. Very good tea. Clean lines, sushi bar, friendly, calm, consistent, Sometimes nicely quiet at lunch, especially when nearby colleges are on break. Big room in back for when it gets crowded, or... More

I've been going to Aoki for years, so I've gotten used to the quality of food and the quirky staff. It takes only visiting another sushi restaurant in Seattle to remind myself that they have some of the best.

The food was great, hamachi kama, sashimi selection, white tuna roll, mackerel roll, salmon sushi, even the miso, all fresh and great tasting and fresh, but the place is a dump. It smells funny in there, the walls are dirty and so is the carpet. The bathroom is the same. Service was good. The green tea very tasty. Go for... More

Addicted to Japanese food we often try the local restaurants when traveling. This is one of the better when it comes to the quality of the food you get. Of course you can go for the perfect westernized sushi rolls, but if dare to leave this path, look for the other options on the menu.

A good neighborhood restaurant for sushi lovers but please try it if you like other types of Japanese food, also. My favorite dishes include their roasted eggplant with ginger (robata), fried oyster dinner (kaki fry), tempura and their sushi rolls. The fish is always fresh and tasty and you can either get a dinner with soup and salad or put... More
