“Great Sushi”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I love the lunch specials, always good and fresh, right across the street from Mighty-O! Order some plum wine and call it a date.

“Great value for great sushi!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

So I'm from the east coast so I was not used to the offerings but I was pleasantly surprised. Warm towelettes prior to dining and attentive service. The sushi dinner and tempura dinner split between 6 was an affordable way to sample prior to ordering more for party of six. Eel and avocado roll was off the hook. Unagi was perfectly prepared. WallIngford roll was yummy too! Thumbs up!

“Good Food in the neighborhood”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

My husband & I used a Bloomspot coupon and we pleased with the place and food overall.
It is nice to have a good Japanese restaurant in the neighborhood.
Good for small groups, reasonable prices, not too loud, family- oriented place.

“Great Sushi - some of the best in Seattle”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Great sushi and very reasonable prices. A great omakase sushi negri with a beer and green tea was around 120 usd - which for the very high quality was a steal. Be aware that the location seems to be in the middle of a residential neighboughood - but the food is clearly worth making a detour for.

“My Regular Place for Sushi for 6 Years”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

My wife and I have being going to Kisaku for the past 6 years. We find it to be one of the best sushi restaurants in the Seattle area. Shiro's in Belltown is comparable but the bill will be 40-50% higher. We almost always eat at the sushi bar where the owner Nakano San knows what we like and ALWAYS provides us with the freshest, most wonderful fish. We generally eat a lot sashimi so fresh fish is important. I am in love with their Albacore, otoro, hamachi belly, miragai, and the uni, especially when it it sweet. In November Nakano prepares his own salmon roe, which is worth 2 or 3 orders.

The non-sushi items are also wonderful. Hamachi kama, soft shell crab tempura, the sunomo's, oysters, and other specials that are on the chalk board always superb.

Kisaku will not disappoint. If you don't feel really good after eating there, you are not a sushi person.
