World class food and service in a neighborhood-friendly location.
Amazing service and food. The best in the city!
Attentive care with the food, the serving dishes, the atmosphere and for us it’s a convenient location with parking easily available.
Service is indifferent. Expensive. Good but not exceptional.
I received a recommendation to got to this restaurant for the best sushi in Seattle. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The food and service were excellent. I will definitely return during my next visit to Seattle.
Outstanding local seafood prepared expertly prepared, excellent service, a true gem.
We made a reservation, quickly were sat at the bar, Matt was extremely helpful and made fantastic sushi, he was also knowledgeable on the fish they had and suggestions for us to try. Great time, great atmosphere too!!
Wonderful weekend lunch. Great food and service.
Very good sushi and a wonderful dining experience.
My wife and I got the 6-course Omakase with the sake pairing. The sushi courses were EXTREMELY small - the two sushi courses consisted of 2 or 3 pieces of nigiri. Then the sake pairing only included 5 sakes for a 6-course Omakase - no sake with desert even though there were several desert sakes on the menu. Very disappointing performance from a restaurant we have enjoyed many times in the past.
Wonderful place:). We go a couple times a month. Parking isn’t easy.
We went for brunch, 11:15 am on Saturday. Only customers. Great food and GREAT service!
Another flawless and delicious meal — great sushi offerings, all exquisitely prepared and presented. Edward our server was attentive, knowledgeable, gracious and welcoming. And the saké and dessert were truly fine as well. We always look forward to our next visit!
Although we have been eating here for many years, this visit really stood out as superior! The food was absolutely top notch (and we travel to Japan frequently).
Taichi-san as always, personally greets guests, and makes them feel comfortable immediately. We went for the weekend brunch, which was superb. The Hiru, or beef, was hot and tender. The side dishes were all well prepared and tasty, especially the tofu and sashimi.
The wait staff were attentive and non-intrusive, bringing and removing dishes w/o interrupting diners, and keeping our tea cups full. The noise level was quiet, even though the place was busy.
All in all, this was a most delicious and satisfying experience. e will return again, soon!
Great food good service but the price is a bit high
One of our favorite places!
Great food! Top five Japanese restaurant in seattle for sure!
Cozy ambiance unlike many sushi restaurants. Nice mood lighting. Nice interior styling.
Excellent service. The sushi was very good. I like the greater variety at Shiro's... no monkfish livers here or daily specials. They did, however have two varieties of uni; one from Hokkaido and one from Maine. There were two varieties of hamachi; one a Fall specialty. And I liked the wide variety of saki and the option to taste seasonal flights. Though it wan't on the menu, they were willing to do a Matsutake tempura. Both the Matsutake and the chef's willingness were very welcome.
One of the top sushi restaurants in Seattle. I would choose it again just for the atmosphere.
Great food, outstanding service, enjoyable Seattle neighborhood right by the lake - great experience. Recommend it!
Amazing sushi that never disappoints. Service is outstanding- love the counter seating to see the magic happen.
Great sushi, great service. Lovely special occasion dinner.

Service and food were excellent. We had some rowdy nephews along and you were very gracious in helping to keep the piece. We enjoy the atmosphere and care taken with all aspects of our dining. Thank you!
Just outstanding! Thank you for sitting us at the sushi bar... an amazing experience.
The best sushi I’ve had anywhere. They only serve fish that is sustainable fisheries. There are also wonderful hot dishes for those who prefer them. The ambiance and service are amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Let the waiter choose the menu. Superb. Really one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had. I’m also fussy. Well done. 👏🏻👏🏻
Sushi Kappo Tamura has great sushi and a nice ambiance. Service is good and at a reasonable pace. However, I am always surprised at how high the bill is - quality doesn't come cheaply.
Every single thing I put in my mouth was delicious. The (raw) scallops were so good I kept ordering more. The waitstaff was kind and knowledgeable and made great recommendations.
Very good fresh fish. O-Toro and Buri belly was great. A lot of the fish they serve is imported from Japan.
Tried the sushi combo. Sushi was not made properly, without properly squeezing the rice ball and fish together. Some rice pieces were falling out. Price at premium but food quality was below par. Raw oysters were quite good though
Awesome sushi in s great environment
The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The omakase at the sushi bar is the way to go. The chefs skill, presentation, and descriptions were perfect. So delicious! High recommendations for this restaurant.
Excellent food and great service
I was recommended to go to sushi Kappo Tamura by a few friends and it did not disappoint. Was my boyfriends first time having omakase at the counter.
Service was flawless and the server/bar manager had great knowledge in sake. Eugene was our chef making our sushi and his nigiri was very delicious.
This place has exceeded my expectations and we will be back again.
We had an incredible experience for our anniversary. We sat at the counter and enjoyed chit chatting with the chefs about the two most important things in life: family and food! There was a Wonderful selection of Ippins (cooked starters) on the menu so we created our own tasting menu of select items to share. The chawanmushi is fabulous as was the rare delicacy of geoduck. The sashimi combo as our finishing course was superb in quality: smooth and almost buttery. We finished with a toast of sparkling sake, an incredibly silky smooth elixir with lovely fine bubbles. Thanks for the memorable night!
The very best sushi in Seattle, possibly the best on the West coast.
