“Chef's Mercy.... four courses of fun!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We had a great dining experience here during our recent visit to Seattle. Both of us ordered the Chef's Mercy and were treated to a lovely sampling of the complex flavors the chef was able to conjure. Fun place, great location, super food!

“Barcelona Sunset”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

On the recommendation of the server, I ordered the Barcelona Sunset role, which was amazing. Very zesty (lots of spice). It went very well with some nice chilled sake - in my case the Hakutsuru Nigori. Just found this place on a walk by - and really liked it.

“A gem hidden away from the main Pike Place Market crowds”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

This is a good sized restaurant with modern decor. The Super Bad Boy, Seattle Crunch roll although not a truly traditional roll, but OMG fantastic. The Chefs Omikasi sashimi was great, so was the ribs. This is defininately worth it specially at HH prices. HH is all day except 6:30p to 10:30p in the main dining room.

“This is the best sushi I have had outside of Japan”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

My wife wanted late night sushi, and we happen upon this place while looking for a sushi restaurant. There are open late, and take orders until 11pm. We got sashimi and two rolls. The sashimi reminded me exactly of sashimi we had in Kyoto, and was of the highest quality. The rolls where also top notch. At this time of night, it was also happy hour, with discounted drinks and food. We would have gone back if we could, but we left Seattle the next day. Overall, I high recommend this place.
