The fish is so fresh and Chef Bobby is a master at his craft! His creations really highlighted the best flavors of each fish. We only ordered nigiri as we are purists when it comes to sushi. Don’t be scared to try what the chef recommends. You will not be disappointed! If you truly appreciate the simplicity and the art of sushi, you will love Chef Bobby. Can’t wait to go back.

This was probably the best sushi meal I have ever had! Everything was amazing, but particularly the sashami was above anything we had ever had before. I will be back and would recommend this to anyone looking for great sushi.

They are quite pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

Ate early -- @ 6:00 -- before a concert at Meany Hall. Sat at the counter where we watched our dishes being prepared and had personal service/recommendations. Very attentive staff. All the fish were very fresh, succulent, accented with subtle sauces. No need to drown anything in soy sauce. Tuna with kale salad was memorable. Going with a small group would enable tasting a greater variety of dishes.

We went there to celebrate a 16th birthday, and it was a good choice. Our server was especially solicitous, especially of the birthday girl. The food was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. There was a great variety of dishes, including great dessert choices.
I spent more than I had expected, but it was a special dinner.

 (Columbus)·Dined on December 16, 2017

My husband and I have lived all across the country and we’ve had much better sushi at a much better value. For the cost of a special roll $23/8 pieces, we were expecting something delicious. Not the case. Very blah and it tasted like it had quacamole from a grocery store inside the roll. The spicy tuna and shrimp tempura rolls were bland and had the same avacado taste. Fish quality was mediocre. They don’t have much of a variety of flavorful rolls. Seems like 80% of them have the same cucumber and avacado in them. All in all, we will not be back.

Pros
easy parking across the street
Pleasant staff
Easy to get reservation
(not many people inside for a Saturday night)
The standard rolls are at least reasonably priced - average $10

Long time customer. The sushi is excellent, with a focus on sustainable seafood and local ingredients. Bobby the sushi chef is knowledgeable and friendly. Steve has been helping us to explore fine sake for years. And of course Taichi the executive chef has created killer signature dishes Skagit River Ranch Organic Pork Tenderloin Tonkatsu, mustard greens with Washington albacore and almond wasabi sauce, House Made Millet Mochi sweet azuki beans. Go omakase if you can!
