Best sushi lunch in town, period. Make a reservation to avoid a wait. Service is always super friendly and pretty quick considering the crowd. Lunch time prices are very good for their top quality rolls. Spicy spider rolls are the best I've had. GooglePlace - March 2017

One of our favorite sushi places! Their happy hour is amazing and runs most of the day. It is always delicious and creative. They also have a lot of cooked items in case there are non sushi eating members of your party. On weekends, parking in the lot for the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) is easy and convenient.

Fun environment with very fresh sushi. Service is horrible though. But I'm glad this place stays late because I came here with friends who were out of town and they were starving at midnight. The music is on point and the place itself is fairly clean. Ordered the Cheshire bowl and it came in a small box and it was decorated so beautifully. Fresh slices of fish were melt in your mouth.

Best sushi my friend and I have ever had. Neither of us are huge sushi people, but both of us were amazed at the flavors of the street fighter 2 and Spanish lover. The Spanish lover was both our favorites and, if we happen to come back, it would be tough not to get that every time alongside another one of their rolls - all of which sounded fantastic. Priced at ~$20/roll, I would consider it more than worth it, despite the fact that it isn't exactly cheap. Would I go back? In a heartbeat. GooglePlace - February 2017

I found this place on Google maps and went there for the first time after work with a friend. It was a Friday so I used the online reservation service offered on their website. It was easy to use and even gave me the option to add my friend's email so they got the confirmation too. *Note, if you want to sit at the sushi bar you have to call ahead and request that specifically.* The waiter was very nice and never left us alone too long. He offered good suggestions when asked and was knowledgeable about the gluten free items. The Japanese-Latin fusion rolls were amazing and the sake selection was extensive! Overall a wonderful dinner and experience! I only gave it 4 stars for some minor issues. The acoustics were not good, it's noisy even when it's not packed. There were enough gluten free options I couldn't remember them all, but there were no notations on the menu to help identify the choices, or a separate gluten free menu for me to look at.
