Sushi Kappo Tamura Ratings and Reviews
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.
yet another great experience at Sushi Kappo Tamura! I have been going here for the past 4 years and it keeps getting better. Bobby at the sushi counter was amazing. he served up piece after piece of fresh, perfect sushi. each one better than the one before. multiple types and cuts of tuna, snapper, yellowtail, and even two versions of uni! it was my GFs birthday and they made it a special night. perfect.
Our waiter Edward was very knowledgeable in helping us select our meal.
The rolls we ordered were fresh and tasty. Black Dragon Roll , Golden Dragon Roll and Spider roll all very good!
Braised Snake River Farms wagyu beef skirt konabe with maitake mushrooms and yuchoi, awesome!
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.
easy parking across the street
Easy to get reservation
(not many people inside for a Saturday night)
The standard rolls are at least reasonably priced - average $10
My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary. We ended up having to take our children because we couldn't get a babysitter. Even then we had an Awesome time. Everything and everyone made our experience there wonderful! And the food is to die for. I'll definitely be back!!!
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!
The sushi weren’t as good as I remembered the first time and the previous time I went. I’m not sure if the chef has changed.
We ordered majority of the sushi on the sushi menu. The fish on the sushi weren’t as large as last time, with aburi toro I remember was amazing wasn’t broiled nearly enough and wasn’t flavorful either. The only sushi was decent was Uni.
Ippins were pretty good. We had the wagyu in the clay pot, the collard greens goma-ae twist both were pretty good.
I liked the yuzu panna cotta and my boyfriend liked the chestnut creme brûlée.
First impression, very aesthetically pleasing. From the lighting to the sake pottery, the style of the restaurant is very calming and contemporary. The food was amazing. The sea bream (which has a really cool iridescent rainbow color) sashimi literally tasted like tomato and I've never experienced that before. By far the best was the Kagoshima hamachi sashimi, it was so fresh and the had a gorgeous red pink ombré color. Very picture-worthy. Overall a great experience and a great find. Would recommend to anyone.
Food and service were outstanding - but be prepared to spend. Had some unique dishes that were excellent - my waitress did a great job understanding my level of adventurism (which is high) and brought me dishes to match. Would definitely return when I return to Seattle.
Impressive selection of sake -
Went for lunch with a close business friend. Staff took amazing care to make sure we had privacy to talk business but were available to see to our needs. Asked them to surprise us as opposed to just ordering right off the menu. Edward asked a couple of quick questions and then blew us away with our lunch. Can’t wait to come back and do this again.
This was the best recommendation I received while visiting Seattle! It was a bit pricey but completely worth it. The sushi was the best I've ever had. The udon noodle bowl was also perfect for the colder, rainy weather. I'd happily go back next time I'm in the area!
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Both of our servers were thoroughly informed of each part of the menu which was appreciated greatly. The miso soup was a unique surprise (try it) and they customized our sushi requests as neither of us like cucumbers. The saki suggested for my husband's meal was the perfect accompaniment. Highly recommend this small yet nicely appointed restaurant.
Another great experience at Sushi Kappa T ! Matt, Bob, Owners Bob and Steve are the best ! They really make you feel welcomed, they are always professional and service oriented, and it's the BEST Sushi in Seattle. Period. Met a lovely couple at the Sushi bar - this was their 3rd time there and they agreed with me! It truly is the best - so take your wife/husband/friends/dates there, sit at the bar, and be prepared to be taken on an experience!
Wonderful food with great ambiance. Sushi Kappo Tamura focuses on the sustainable. They even grow their own organic greens and shiso in their rooftop garden in the summer. Many a la carte choices and they also offer different sized tasting menus. The sashimi is divine.
