I've found this restaurant to have reliably good Japanese food and have visited it several times over the years when I'm in Seattle. My most recent visit, in early October 2012, didn't disappoint. The service was a little slow, and they might have been short staffed. However, the servers were very apologetic and friendly. We weren't in a hurry in any case. Tempura Udon was superb, and the mixed seafood stir fry was quite good. The salmon nigiri sushi was melt in your mouth excellent, as was a tuna roll we had.

It's located just steps, uphill, from Pike Place. Visitors to Seattle may not be aware of a great tradition: 1/2 price sushi happy hour. Take advantage of it!

This restaurant serves very good sashimi and chirashi. Having eaten in many outstanding Japanese restaurants before, I was impressed with the quality of the fish and the presentation. Wound definitely recommend this place for this looking for tasty Japanese food in Seattle. And the location just off Pike's Place is very convenient.

Try one of their obento lunchs which has salmon teriyaki.
Also, their sushi rolls are delicious. Their prices are moderate.

Grilled teryaki salmon was overcooked, though our tempura was excellent. Gyoza dumplings were average.
Surly waitress, though not unexpected in what seems to be a tourist oriented place.

Had lunch here after visiting Starbucks on the next block. Good Japanese food. Liked the noodle bowls and other food.
