About Pinto Thai Bistro & Sushi Bar

We offer traditional and modern Thai, a couple of Japanese dishes and a well stocked Sushi bar. Can't agree on what to eat? Now you don't have too! Take a couple of rolls or sashimi as an appetizer then eat your favorite curry. We have crafted a few interesting fusions of the cuisines as well (Samurai Pad Thai is a local favorite!)

The menu options are plentiful. We chose the Summer Roll, Samurai Pad Thai, and a chef's special with chicken and noodles. The food was delicious and smelled lovely.

Fantastic spot that I found on Google Maps - great sushi - great Thai - great combinations. I would recommend to anyone. Not cheap but worth it.

So slow. They give priority to the amazon and Uber eats orders over customers sitting in the restaurant. Too costly for the lack of finesse and quality.

Second time at Pinto in the last month (returned so soon because the food was so good the first time), and it did not disappoint. The food at this sweet spot - especially for anyone who loves Asian food that's not run-of-the-mill - is spectacularly good. The Samurai Pad Thai, the Cucumber Salad, the Negi Himachi Roll, the curries, the rice dishes with meat and the vegan specialties are particularly good, but we've never had a bad dish here. The ambience, while not flashy or particularly slick, is ultra-comfortable, with pitch-perfect subdued lighting and a quiet atmosphere that encourages conversation. The waitstaff are just the right amount of unobtrusive. I love this restaurant, and just wish we had one in California that I could frequent or get take out from. Oh well - guess I'll just have to make more trips to Seattle...

The sushi dishes we ordered we delicious and big. We had also ordered the Phad Thai 4 stars, and enjoyed that this dish was a true 4. It did not need more spice and it was not scorching hot. We had a party of 6 and all had enjoyed our dinner.

We went to grab some dinner as we just moved in and have no kitchen set up. I liked the sushi. They had nice happy hour offerings. The fried rice was mushy and tasteless and the chicken was dry. The waitstaff was lovely. There are so many great Thai places in the city and a couple on Capital Hill. Trip Advisor led me astray with this restaurant. I'd give it a pass.

I and people from our company when on the road look specifically for Thai restaurants plus I have been to Thailand multiple times. I have to say the Thai food at Pinto's was excellent and just as good as the food in Thailand. Most of all the service was great. Its not a big place and so when we walked in with 10 people, they were great at accommodating us and getting us served quickly. We will have future shows for years to come in Seattle and will make this a regular spot to get our Thai fix. We dined twice at Pinto's during our stay!

Went here for Valentine's Day and was very impressed with our experience! Service was fantastic, food came out very quickly & waters were always full (which was great since I ordered my Kee-Mao too spicy, my fault).

Would certainly recommend for lunch or dinner with a co-worker or even as a couples night.

I like sushi, my wife does not. Luckily she loves Thai. We were visiting from North Carolina and didn't really know where to go. I punched in "Thai Sushi Seattle" into Google and Pinto popped up. The Sushi was spot on and the Panang curry was better than anything we can get out in NC.

The restaurant is small but unpretentious and the waiter was a friggin' delight.

We'll be moving to Seatlle in the summer and plan to make Pinto a regular stop.

Very fresh and well prepared dishes with no MSG. I had the Omakase which was fabulous.
