It is hard to find traditional sushi in the US. No, I do not want a fancy place. I could care less about fusion and rolls. All I want is excellent fish quality served nigiri style. Izumi delivers. The cuts are generous, the fish excellent...More

There is nothing like traditional Japanese dishes like tempura, tonkatsu, chicken teriyaki, sukiyaki..... it's just good food! Izumi offers all that in a nice cozy restaurant. Great service, good food, easy on the credit card. Add a little sushi and fresh sashimi--- great dinner!

Not sure whether the restaurant is very good because the chef is Japanese. But very good it is. The sushi is good because it has been 'aged' right according to my wife who has lived in Japan for more than 9 years. Apparently, the sushi...More

Rated best sushi in Kirkland. Happily surprised. It was a birthday dinner so we indulged. The service people were attentive and charming. The food was delicious and nicely presented. Looks like it gets quite busy on Saturday evening
