    It was a perfect 5 course meal with whisky before my husband and I headed to Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall. The food reminded me of fine Japanese Kaiseki dishes. We will definitely come back again.

    Head Chef and Owner, Taichi Kitamura, orchastrated a "omokase" dinner that my friend and I will never forget. Every bite was exquisite, unique and savory. His interaction with us while preparing each piece was delightful and engaging. I would highly recommend you saddle up to Taichi's sushi bar and prepare to be amazed.

    We were there last night (1/24). Our server was excellent...unfortunately, can't remember his name. We were sitting in the room to the right as you come in and walk thru the curtains...maybe that would help. The food was as good as we remembered since we haven't been there in awhile. A very enjoyable evening. It would be nice if you had more non-alcoholic options, like an NA beer, or a couple of nice mocktails. That's my only suggestion for making my experience better. Thank you.

    The best sushi we’ve had in Seattle. If they have it, be sure to order the bellies — Yellowtail belly was the best single piece of nigiri I’ve ever had. And ask to sit in Edward’s section. You’ll have a great time.

    Consistently an outstanding dining experience!!! Love the mustard greens with tuna, chawan mushi and oishii rolls! What took it to another level and increased our loyalty and support for Sushi Kappo Tamura was their flexibility and understanding when we needed to cancel/reschedule due to a recent ice storm — even though we had confirmed 24 hrs in advance. Thank you!

    The food was phenomenal and the server was unbelievably engaging and knowledgable. We enjoyed every single thing we ate -- we got variations of the sushi combos, which is a nice in between of omakase and ordering a bunch of individual nigiri.

    The sushi was perfect! The service was good until my partner was on his last bite as his plate was being removed and the buser even waited for him to hand over his chop sticks as he was still chewing. Then they left behind his rice as if he still had a utensil to eat with. He then ate the rice with his fingers haha. It was just an interesting ending to an otherwise great dinner.

    Absolutely amazing experience. Came here for the first time around 4 years ago and since moving to the area have now decided to come again for my birthday. Everything exceeded expectations and the quality remainder the same, if not better. Consistency and service was absolutely exceptional. All the fish was the freshest it could be. Will absolutely be coming back, such a warm and welcoming place! Couldn’t have been better. Thank you Avery for the special attention and beer talks. :)

    A great place to celebrate an occasion, the food and drinks were delicious. Compared to other expertly crafted sushi restaurants - Sushi Kappo Tamura was easy to find a reservation within a week. The Sushi was fantastic, and they easily accommodated a shellfish allergy with tasty substitutions in the Sushi Combo. The sake selection was simple, and laser-focussed on delivering smart flavor pairings. The shishito peppers here may be my favorite take on the dish in any Izakaya I've visited in Seattle. The next time I have something to celebrate, I'll be thinking about this excellent Sushi restaurant.

    We tried to omakase. Food is too overpriced for the amount of food and quality. I like shiro’s a lot better in term of good quality.
