Always bring visitors here. They love the variety of groceries. We usually pick up fresh fruits and veggies for their stay. Get deli food for that nights dinner. And everyone loves the fish and gift departments.

My only complaint about Uwajimaya is that there isn't one near me. Oh, and the parking can be a little bit of a bear. Great grocery and sundries store, with a great food court. Outstanding selection of fresh fruits and veg, meats, etc., plus a collection of Japanese and Asian goods you just can't find anywhere else in Seattle.

Uwajimaya is the best place in Seattle to satisfy your food, beverage, and cultural cravings for all things "Asian" :)) Their market offers a vast array of fresh, dried, canned, and frozen groceries representing each ethnicity... their fish and shellfish are extremely fresh (of course!), and they also have deli items, plus a big selection of dishes, cookware, small appliances,...

Ramune is $1.99 where we liv e but just $.99 here. There are dozens of sake and beer choices, food to eat there, food to go, and a great grocery selection. Today was our second visit in two days but the lights went out and everyone was asked (very politely) to leave. We'll return later this week.

Uwajimaya isn't the only place to get Asian goods, nor is it the cheapest, but it's always fun to visit. The grocery store does emphasize Japanese cuisine and includes a bookstore and houseware section. But they also have Filipino and Vietnamese baked goods as well as a small but diverse food court inside.

Best overall Asian market. Nice gift sets of cracker assortments. Book store was very good. Parking fee depends on how much you buy.

I love everything about this place except for the customer service. The cashiers are great but two of those on the floor are, for a lack of better word, useless. These two young men on the floor exerted zero effort in helping me find what I needed. Okay, maybe they exerted 1% effort. I have been to other Asian markets... More

While primarily an Asian market, Uwajimaya is a worthy destination for anyone interested in food! Checkout the spices, fresh seafood, seasonal specialties, unique serveware - hard to take it all in! The fast food court is loaded with options - worth an add on stop!
