I’ve never had a bad meal at Sushi Kappo Tamura. The rolls here are delicious, what I find impressive is the quality and variety of fresh fish.

Taichi and his crew are fun to watch And chat with at the sushi bar.

Fish ok quality, obviously not “aged” for a few days as some sushi restaurants do, braised beef dish was not good, you should rethink that entire dish, the broth was obviously not made in house, like from a container and mixed with water

As always, Sushi Kappo Tamura was the perfect choice for a special occasion. My best friend was celebrating a birthday and wanted to celebrate here. They made it special right out of the gate with a cute little happy birthday card waiting on the table when we arrived. We had the 6-course Omakase (with added sashimi course) and everything was so fresh and delicious. It included some dishes and fish we’d never tried before as well as the staples we know and love. Service was top notch. Thanks for a wonderful experience, SKT!

Everything was amazing, from the fish to the happy birthday wishes from the staff to the sake list to the amazing service from Mel! Really great, unpretentious spot to grab some amazing sushi - note that our total was over $400 with a bottle of sake which certainly wasn’t the cheapest date I’ve been on, but the quality was well worth the price!

If I could eat here once a week for the next 20 years, I would. This restaurant mixes flawless and genuine service (Edward!) with an evolving and comprehensive market-centered menu, which conveys the thought and care that the ownership places on serving an array of fresh caught options.

The beverage menu is diverse and reasonable, the price points are modest given the quality, and the ambiance is slightly uptempo but still civil enough for a good conversation.

I’ve always left satisfied and impressed, which judging from the rankings here, I’m not alone.

This was a perfect 5-course meal. Since there was two of us dining, we had an opportunity to try everything they offered in this meal set. The yuzu ginger tea (hot) was delicious. The service was great - super friendly and knowledgable. I would definitely return.

The sushi was very, very good. We sat at the bar so service was very quick, which was nice. The sushi chef was cool and helped us decide what to get, which I always appreciate (we had 4 kinds of salmon sashimi based on his suggestions). We went during happy hour and so were able to enjoy a pretty expensive bottle of sake for half price, which was great. We will definitely come back.

Our set lunches were fantastic! Well executed and tasty.
Our waitstaff was professional and friendly.
The choice of music in the restaurant was appropriate, we appreciated that, as many restaurants are too noisy and not the music we want to hear while trying to have a nice meal.

We think Sushi Kappo Temura is the best sushi in Seattle. Also open for lunch! High quality seafood served at optimum temperature for enjoying sushi. TheIr sushi rice is so good! The Shiso Roll was a tasty surprise. Can’t wait to have it again.

Yes, but...

The 20% surcharge should go. If you want to charge premium prices, just do it. This 20% surcharge going to the house is not okay. This charge is on alcohol too.
