If you are a solo female, don’t bother at lunchtime. I was told I could not have a table and I could only eat at the sushi bar. Ok; I get it. I sat there for over 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged me, contemplating whether...More

Have been dining here since the year they opened in 1984. Their longevity speaks for itself. Excellent sushi. Favorite menu items: black cod teriyaki, gyoza, mirugai batayaki( geoduck), and if you like tofu, try the agedashi tofu. They also make the best coffee jello for...More

A step up from the conveyor belt sushi shops, this is a more traditional sit down Japanese restaurant similar to Rikki Rikki in Kirkland which closed. Service was attentive and friendly and the food came out quickly. We liked our meals especially the soft shell...More

If you are looking for sushi rolls, stay clear of this place, however, the standard sushi/sashimi items are available. Service was very good. The tempura panko was flaky enough, but uninspiring. A bit pricey for what it is.

There is nothing like traditional Japanese dishes like tempura, tonkatsu, chicken teriyaki, sukiyaki..... it's just good food! Izumi offers all that in a nice cozy restaurant. Great service, good food, easy on the credit card. Add a little sushi and fresh sashimi--- great dinner!

Not sure whether the restaurant is very good because the chef is Japanese. But very good it is. The sushi is good because it has been 'aged' right according to my wife who has lived in Japan for more than 9 years. Apparently, the sushi...More

Rated best sushi in Kirkland. Happily surprised. It was a birthday dinner so we indulged. The service people were attentive and charming. The food was delicious and nicely presented. Looks like it gets quite busy on Saturday evening

It is the first time we've been back to Izumi since 2013 (living in the East Coast doesn't help!), our 20th year eating at Izumi. What can we say, it is still the best! It maintains the highest quality, still manned by the same sushi...More
