    Quality of food wasn’t what I expected. Was looking to have more fresh and local quality, especially with the expectation I had during research. Also weren’t given oshibori.

    This was a stellar omakase with brilliantly dressed fish presented in an unpretentious and hospitable manner by a charismatic chef who was supported by a deft front of house representing a clever sake list. Highly recommend.

    The omakase is to die for. 2nd course was a chawanmushi which is one of my favorite japaneses dishes.

    We did the Valentine's day omakase. The service was impeccable, and the food ranged from quite good to exceptional. A 20% tip got automatically included in the bill, though it was well earned. Between the meal and a nice bottle of wine, dinner for two ran us almost $500.

    We love sushi and this is the best sushi we have ever had. The sushi rolls are amazing, too. It is a little bit pricey, but if you want great sushi this is the time to go ahead and splurge.

    Went here on a Wednesday evening to catch up with a friend I hadn't seen in six weeks or so. Was perfect for the occasion. Friend had traveled to Japan many times and was happy with it. We got a nice balance of vegetables, traditional nigiri and sashimi, and splurged on a fancy roll. The shishito peppers were IT! It was all delicious and we'll be back!

    My wife and I are big sushi fans, we go often and to many places around the US. We both agreed that this was the best Omikase we have had. Every item was sublime with unbelievable flavors and melted in the mouth. We did it with a Sake pairing and that too was excellent.

    This was the second time we've come here for a special occasion - both were birthdays and we ordered omakase both times (this last time we ordered the Chef's omakase). The sushi is delectable and the attention to detail is remarkable. Service has been friendly and super-knowledgeable on both occasions.

    A very high-quality sushi experience in a relaxed atmosphere. Omakasa was plentiful and extremely fresh and high-quality. Rice was perfect consistency and temperature and delightfully parsimonious. Extremely friendly chef. Again, the combination of relaxation and quality was really special at this place.

    Maybe you only get high quality craftsmanship at omakase. What we experienced was over priced food made from an amateur. Uneven wasabi from piece to piece, some bites were completely overpowering. Rolls were too loose and falling apart. Black cod didn't get enough time under a broiler, without the charred skin and caramelized flesh, it's just sweet fish. Salmon skin roll was really just a gobo roll with 2 small strips of flabby salmon skin. Premium pricing, standard fare, no thanks. And on top of the premium prices, the house charges 20% and retains 100% of the added gratuity. Their prices were so high, I would have thought 20% was already built in. Strictly speaking quality of fish was good, but in Seattle, that's not enough. Hard pass.
