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.

It was the perfect environment, service, and food for meeting friends and family. Their service was amazing. The waiter knew where every single seafood are coming from. The explanation was super clear and fun to listen. The food was amazing. We would definitely go back to the restaurant.

Found this gem for a NYE dinner and its now a new fav!Great service and knowledgeable staff. We got a rundown of the menu and ended up going with a few apps, sushi combo and a golden dragon roll. All of it was delish! I’ll be going back soon

There is a reason why this is our favorite sushi restaurant. The quality of the fish is exceptional. The servers are incredibly knowledgeable about the food, sake, pairings, etc. The service was attentive yet never looming. We had superb nigiri, some of which was new to us (try the nigiri omakase). Our server built a custom flight of sakes for us to try — such a fun dining experience for us! We love SKT!

Aside from their outstanding food, they went to extra effort to squeeze us in on Sat eve after I mistakenly made my reserva for 2 instead of our 4. Edward was outstanding, esp careful not to make us feel rushed, despite another party due in a short time. Thanks so much to the front of house staff too! They were quick to figure out a plan, while not making us feel like leaving! You all ROCK!

Best sushi in Seattle, pricey but we'll worth it. We've been going here for years, for us it's a special occasion place, but there are always lots of regulars in there too.

Jak's service was thoughtful and attentive. The variety of specialty rolls and additional side dishes was appealing. The sustainable options were appreciated. We dined with two friends, who also enjoyed their experience.

My favorite sushi restaurant hands down. So lucky it’s in my neighborhood! Always warm friendly service. Love the counter seating. I keep adding a new dish to try that becomes the ‘must have’ dish for next time. The Dragon roll is fantastic and one of my favorites.

Get the omakase and sit in front of taichi. Enjoy every bite. Don’t do the 7 course. Go with the 13 and more if you’re hungry. Trust me.

Service was wonderful and the sushi is hands down of the highest quality. But slightly shocked by the bill at the end. Expect to pay a small fortune for an amazing sushi experience.

Recommendations were very good. Actual food was marginal at best. The cod was delicious, the hamachi roll was fair and the spider roll was absolutely the worst, smallest, and biggest rip off I’ve ever seen in a sushi restaurant.

A superb place to have Sushi et al. First class place, great service. You can't really go wrong. Being first-class, it is somewhat expensive, and is NOT a Sushi boat place! Great date or special celebration place. Parking can be a bit difficult, so arrive early.
