The food is terrible! It's very noisy, and the service is slow and not considered. I order 3 dishes, 3 pieces of salmon sushi, the waitress brought it while her thumb is in the ginger that was on the plate. A grilled squid - which should be called burned squid. When I mentioned it to the waitress she said this... More

We had dinner with great friends. Place was highly recommended. The sushi and rolls were really yummy! Lobster tempura was also good.

Very friendly, quick service, even though the place was nearly full and a nice ambience - the house sashimi was really good. The 'oyster shooter' was a really interesting starter dish and not something I'd come across before. By chance I also happened to be there during 'happy hour', so that made it great value for money.

We ordered three of their "specials" of the day. Two were average, tasty. The third was very tasty, above average. Very noisy inside the restaurant, some nay like that ambiance. I prefer to sit in the few bench/tables near the door leading to the bar and main dining area. Sitting here I can enjoy the company of my guests and... More

Made a reservation a few days before our Seattle trip. Seated right away....great table, atmosphere and lighting. Our waitress was wonderful. My daughter and I ordered mostly off the happy hour menu so got some really great deals. Enjoyed the complimentary edamame, nice glass of red wine, soy broth tofu, cali. rolls, and noodles. Would def. go back :)

We came here during happy hour (4-6) where beverages and many rolls, etc. were a great deal. Everything we had was delicious and surprising, including the very fresh tuna poke salad, the seaweed salad, Yakisoba noodles and our two rolls (spider roll and shrimp tempura roll). For our kids, they fashioned trainer chopsticks with rubber bands. I'm glad we had... More

I was very surprised that the food wasn't as good of quality as YELP & TripAdvisor made it out to be. The customer service was great, anyone serving us we very attentive, we always had everything we needed. The environment was cool, music, etc. They had a variety of different type of seating areas. We were told Seattle we HAD... More

Went for dinner last week with my teenage son. We both loved our sushi choices. The ladybug roll was superb. Loved the sweet potato in it. The fruit and tuna roll was a hit. Yummy strawberry paired with tuna was great. The lucky leprechaun roll was a delight. What's not to love about avocado and other yummy foods all in... More

Dinner tonight was a meal to remember. Happy hour is a true value. The sushi and sashimi are all good. The marinated black cod and the 3 seafood bake are both outstanding. An amazing sake menu. And, the servers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Ranny is a charm.

This is my go to sushi restaurant in Seattle. Happy hour specials are a great bargin. Favorite menu item is the Wild White King Salmon, it just messes with your head, looks like Tuna tastes like Salmon! Must try, available on the 009 roll too. My favorite roll is the Hotter Than Hell...Yeah roll. Enjoy. Service is perfect.

Thank Joel D
