We LOVE sushi and couldn't wait to try this place after seeing the reviews. The inside was modern, sleek, and perfect. The sushi was also very good. The hostess was sweet and they were busy but they got us a table within 25 min.
Our server though, Jessica, was very short with us overall very rude. We sat for a long time not knowing when we would be helped, and when she finally did she never introduced herself and just asked what we wanted. We asked her what she liked and she recommended three rolls then told us she would give us a few more minutes and walked off. At the end of the meal she never offered to bring us two checks (we were eating with another couple) and instead put it all on one check, so we were forced to give her two cards to split down the middle. This is inexcusable.
We usually tip very generously and are understanding if servers are busy, but that was not the case. We will look elsewhere for better service.

Presentation and service was excellent. Extensive sushi menu also have entree dishes. Very nice Japanese menu. Thought it was a bit expensive given access to Seattle fresh seafood. Variety of seating areas, tables, bar, covered patio. Nice ambiance. I sat at the Sushi bar. Was not disappointed with the food items and quality of the rolls. Would recommend highly. Server was friendly and helpful.

I love coming here for a little late night sushi.

The service and quality of food are always reliable. I've been coming here for years and have always been happy.

Centrally located in downtown area. Upon entering, you are first greeted with very comfortable surroundings. There is a sushi bar but we chose to be seated at a low table for 4 with cushioned bench seats. Very authentic Japanese cuisine with a wide selection of food items and sake. Our server was very knowledgeable and pleasant and timely in attending to our needs. Prices are reasonable and the food quality is excellent. All the fish items we ordered were very fresh which was confirmed by my better half who spent 10 years + in Japan. This is one restaurant we would visit again and again.

huge sushi menu and great atmosphere in Belltown. There rolls tend to be a little more saucy and the presentation is beautiful. definitely a great place for a special occasion.
Make reservations for a great table.
