Sushi in Seattle

  • j

Hello again,

Thanks for the tips of cherries and cheeses!

Now onto sushi... I have a friend visiting who, I know, is going to want to hit the good sushi joints. He and I agree that sushi should have nothing to do with glamour. In fact, we are both of the opinion that sushi is usually best served from a hole in the wall, where the prices are good and the fish is out of this world.

Any tips?

  1. If you want cheap hole in the wall, sounds like Musashi is your place. It's in Wallingford. Go early or expect to wait cause it's tiny. Not my favorite sushi, but certainly a value. My more frugal friends swear by this place.

        Thanks for linking that review. I still get the chills when I think of that first time at Kisaku, so LOVELY and decadent! I can't wait to go back :-)

        1. If you want low price sushi, then Sushiland in Bellevue is the place to go. $1, $1.50, $2, and $3 plates on the conveyor belt. Lots of Japanese tourists/ex-pats/salarymen eat there. Not the best, but for the money, it fills your belly with contentedness.

          Azuma in W. Seattle is my favorite neighborhood joint. Musashi in Wallingford is a good like the previous poster says, IF you can get into the place.

          1. I think that Chiso has the best sushi in town. It's priced comparably to Kisaku and the others, the service is fantastic and it has a great atmosphere. You'd be more than happy...
