Sushi recommendations for a group in Seattle

velvet jones Dec 20, 2007 10:47 AM


I am looking for sushi recommendations for a group or eight for dinner in Seattle. I have browsed the boards and have seen all the usual suspects and have personally frequented Shiro's and Kisaku since moving here from Chicago in June. However, I do not know if either of these places would best fit our situation.

Essentially I am looking for the best "all-around" recommendation that would cover everyone's sashimi, nigiri, and roll fix (tradtional and more creative).

Thank you in advance.

    Umi Sake house might fit your bill. They are consistantly quite good, have a decent selection of sashimi and nigiri, all well cut and an enormous list of rolls, including the very creative. they also have a fair selection of cooked stuff. I wouldn't suggest them if you are looking for the kind of personal attention you get at shiros or kisaku, but for a big group or if you are interested in good drinks too, they are quite a pleasant place.

      Thanks for the reply. Yeah, Umi Sake House was on the short list of potential places, but I wanted to get some other opinions.

      Thanks again.

      Kisaku's back room would be perfect for 8. What's the source of your reluctance?

        fuji sushi in the ID has traditional tatami rooms ... I've had lovely sushi there. It's fairly traditional but nice. I don't think there are many tatami rooms left in town. I've always had fun eating with a group in one!

          No particular reason for the apprehension for not going with Kisaku. I was not aware they had a back room. I will definitely look into this, as well as the tatami rooms at Fuji. Are there any other places with smaller back rooms that anyone knows about?

            shiro's has one but uckkkkk!!! I don't think there is one at Nishino ....check into Fuji, I think there might be doors you can close so it's super private

              i believe maneki has a couple of tatami rooms and that's my absolute favorite in town. the common chowhound complaint is that it's too busy and i think they don't take reservations but for a group of 8 in a tatami room i bet you could reserve.

            I also love Umi Sake house -- and they also have a Tatami room. It's always empty when I go -- so I bet its easy to book!
