Discover the Best Sushi in Seattle

Seattle has been a hub to Japanese culture since the late 19th century, when a wave of immigrants from the island nation moved to the Pacific Northwest. With access to fresh Pacific Coast seafood and a dynamic dining scene, Seattle is now one of the top cities in the U.S. for sushi and other authentic Japanese eats—there are dozens of options all over. We looked to local tastemakers in our network, the people who always know where the best restaurants in town are, to find the best sushi spots in the Emerald City. These are the restaurants to go to when you’re craving sushi in Seattle.
