Nigiri was delicious and the fish selection was very well done. Our sushi chef was very friendly and helpful. The waiters weren’t very helpful, and we waited 25 minutes at the sushi bar till we finally were given our first piece of nigiri. For $90 per person that’s a very ridiculous wait.

My favorite restaurant in all of Seattle...maybe the world. Best food, best service, best people. I am happy to support them. If you don't eat sushi here, you are missing out. It's truly the best I've ever eaten. I suggest the omeskase at least once. It's where we go to celebrate everything.

The overall experience was good. The non stand sushi we had - Masaba, chutoro, unagi, black cod were very good and desserts were also delicious! The standard sushi like salmon, kanpachi, octopus, shrimp, maguro wasn’t impressive. Service was standard. The super downside of this restaurant is the additional 20% charge that stays in house for staff wages and benefit isn’t cool. I have been to restaurants with such charge but usually it’s 5% only. It’s a rip off on the customers and having to pay tips for the servers on top of that. It’s like ending up paying 35-40% extra! I feel bad for the servers, they probably don’t get much tips working there. Also it makes customers give less tip directly to the servers because most people wouldn’t want to pay more on top of the 20% they are forced to pay. Because of this, I wouldn’t recommend doing dine in. Better order to go without being force the 20% charge that doesn’t go to the servers.

one of the best and most memorable meals of my life. this is not your average good sushi. everything is done with care, attention to detail and the fish is the star. quiet atmosphere with a casual, knowledgeable and energetic waiter who was eager to please and tell you about everything on the menu.

We had another great meal at Sushi Kappo Tamura. The tempura is always excellent and the addition of the kale this time was fun. We ordered the chef's selection of nigiri and everything was perfectly prepared. It seems as if some of the earlier supply shortages have eased because the menu had more items than a few months ago. There were great wine and sake by the glass choices.

In my opinion, this is the best sushi in Seattle. It reminds me of my favorite sushi bar in Japan. The sushi chefs are friendly when you are sitting at the bar and the staff is very knowledgeable about the sake selection. If you are intimidated by the list, ask for a sake pairing with your meal or their recommendations - it won't disappoint!
