Most likely one of the best sushi locations in the United States. Absolutely can't go wrong with the omakase!

I spent one night in Seattle for work, and was told by several trusted friends that this place had to be my choice for dinner. I got there an hour early to be the first in line, to ensure a seat at the bar. What...More

This place.... is worth your money. I would even pay whatever the chef demands to eat their sushi. Simply amazing, and if you go here, you must try the OMAKASE.

If you crave authentic, fresh, raw sushi, you'll love this crowded spot. It's hard to book a table unless you do so a week or more in advance. Everything is fresh, prepared with pride and served by the friendly waitstaff.

We had a meal of nigiri here (along with soup) and everything was delicious. Among other things the octopus got rave reviews. Excellent service, also. Well organized.

The place was packed on a Monday night, so we knew it would be good. Very fresh, very authentic. It is not the place for teriyaki, but for real sushi. Not cheap either, but good food and good service.
