This is my "go to" Japanese restaurant near SEA airport. It's about 15 minutes drive, south of SEA airport in Federal Way. The food is authentic Japanese and very good. Service can be slow sometime. The atmosphere is casual (not fancy).

To the Kimonos the servers wear to Papa-son working behind the sushi bar, this restaurant offers a very classy and stylish Japanese cultural environment! Plus the food is delicious and the service is top-notch.

I was impressed by the description on their website and it was all true. The sushi was great and so was the gyoza. The atmosphere is nice and the waitresses were very friendly and knew how to advise on any questions.
