We've been going to Aoki's, our neighborhood sushi place, for years. We knew we were in a special place the first time we had the octopus: Instead of being somewhat rubbery, it melts in your mouth. With all the sushi restaurants in Seattle, Aoki's has the best price–quality value: Equal quality to the high-priced joints in Belltown; better quality than... More

Not much English so hard to relay your order. The place is nice and quiet, but the food was just ok to us.

Neighborhood sushi restaurant. I appreciate that the service, food, and experience is consistent. Simple and straightforward. There are plenty of regulars who the owner knows and it has a friendly vibe. Families - large groups - couples - or sitting solo - it works for everyone. We like the table for two by the front window to people watch. Low... More

This is a peaceful tranquil place on Capitol Hill. Unfortunately the sushi was not very good. If you want a nice quite place to chat but not eat all that well, this is it.

A Japanese friend recommended this place and we could see why. Delicious sushi, friendly service, and nearby to Cornish College.

Aoki has been one of my favorite Japanese restaurants for years. The sushi is very good. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service is very good. I also love their miso soup and tempura.

Aoki is our go-to favorite for lunch on Broadway. Always reliable salt-broiled saba, served with miso salad and rice, $10.50. Also for Donburi with chicken $9.50, miso extra. Very good tea. Clean lines, sushi bar, friendly, calm, consistent, Sometimes nicely quiet at lunch, especially when nearby colleges are on break. Big room in back for when it gets crowded, or... More

I've been going to Aoki for years, so I've gotten used to the quality of food and the quirky staff. It takes only visiting another sushi restaurant in Seattle to remind myself that they have some of the best.

The food was great, hamachi kama, sashimi selection, white tuna roll, mackerel roll, salmon sushi, even the miso, all fresh and great tasting and fresh, but the place is a dump.
