“Original Rolls with a Latin flair!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This restuarant has some of the best sushi rolls I have had. It is important to make reservations because it is hard to get in without them. We arrived a few minutes before happy hour was seated and the waiter still offered us the happy hour prices, even though it ended by the time our reservation started. The rolls are big and our waiter was kind enough to caution us so that we did not order more tan we could eat. The service was excellent, quick and friendly. We met a couple who goes there every month. The misso soup was delicious and had mussrooms and seaweed. The sashimi was perfect and the prices, even with a bottle of sake were great! From our table we could see the ferris wheel on the dock. It was a wonderful experience in every aspect and I plan to return.

“Fresh, Fast, and delightful”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This great sushi restaurant is a gem. The food is incredibly fresh, comes quickly after ordering, and the ambiance is delightful. They even have crystal chandeliers. My two colleagues and I chowed quite a bit of amazing sushi and couldn't believe what a bargain this place was. I highly recommend this wonderful place!

“LUNCH IS A MUST * GREAT PRICES!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Am a Seattle native and loved to discover this sushi restaurant in the middle of downtown Seattle. The atmosphere was really awesome, the people watching out the window fun. I got the chicken yakisoba, brown rice, and salad and it was $9-that was incredibly reasonable; my family split 3 sushi dishes, loved them, and couldn't finish them (which is a rarity). You won't be disappointed!

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We had a good meal at this restaurant. Hostess was friendly and attentive, giving us updates while we waited a short 10 mins. for a table. The decor of the restaurant was fabulous. Our waiter was amazing. He was so friendly and knowledgable, I swear he could have been the owner. We started with their fabulous miso soup! It was fantastic and only $2! Our orders included the Legend roll, Salmon, Ultimate Dragon roll and chicken yakisoba. Everything was absolutely delicious. The only thing that would be nice is a few more options for those who don't like sushi, but would like to eat with their friends that do.
