    The rolls are amazing, very large though, so don't order the same number of rolls that you normally would anywhere else. I would personally suggest ordering the fresh Nigri. Melts in your mouth!

    Their food is unique and I'd recommend trying their adventurous combinations. Loved the octopus cake appetizer and Orange crush roll. Their Diablo roll came extra spicy but it hit the spot.

    If you love sushi, make sure to check out their happy hour menu (or stop by for lunch). In the mood for rolls? Try the Matador and/or the Heat Stroke! #ScrappyTips

    One of the best sushi restaurants I have been to! The Chef's Selection Sushi ($60) is the best option. You get a wide variety of fish, and it's delicious!

    Awesome food and service! Julian was able to get us some drinks (Sundress Manhattan) best one ever while we waited. The line was long but that's what you get on a great place on a Saturday night!

    Matador, best roll. Oyster shots, delicious starter! Hardworking Mexicans 🇲🇽 and a few other Latin Americans at the bar make a living doing delicious maki rolls, respect 👏👏👏🍣👌

    This is my fav sushi place in Seattle. Amazing happy hour, seriously amazing sushi and a fantastic ambiance. Mr. Wonderful, Mexican Ninja and the Green Goddess (no longer on the menu) are my top picks

    The takoyaki was great, very tasty. The shredded bonita on top was just a great combination. The sushi bar adds a 20% charge for service and it is a little slow, however it is worth it.

    When I crave sushi I head straight here! My favorite rolls are Super Bad Boy, Mr. Wonderful, and Madrid Moon. Don't leave without trying an Oyster Shooter and Scallop Ceviche. Reservations are ideal!

    They have a long and awesome happy house. They serve both traditional and Americanized sushi. The super bad boy is my American "fried" favorite.

    If they have fatty tuna, get it sashimi or sushi style. It doesn't matter, just get it in your mouth quickly and have your life be forever changed. Best thing I've had in Seattle all year.

    The happy hour menu is great. The Sake Grasshopper is delicious. The short ribs are so good, but be prepped to get your hands a bit greasy to savor each piece.

    Inventive sushi, had omakasa for 40 usd - super! A symphony of tastes and textures. Miso with clams not worth double price, have the regular miso

    One of my favorite spots to get sushi, I love the Seattle Crunch Roll and the Crab Tower. Japonessa has a great late night happy hour 10PM to close.

    Very delicious sushi. Fresh fish and fast service. Great for hanging out with a groupie or having a date.

    Their sauces are amazing. Habanero aioli, strawberry citrus, citrus truffle.. Yum. Rolls are good but too much rice and not enough protein..a little bit less rice more protein would make it better.

    Happy Hour all day until 6:30. Order from the happy hour menu and you'll have a superb, inexpensive meal. Splurge on the matador though.

    Japonessa is a “sushi cocina” that blends traditional sushi techniques with south-of-the-border ingredients like jalapeno, cilantro, and mango. Read more

    Didn't get to try HH, but sounds like a great deal. If you like to try specialty rolls this is your place. Went with a group- everyone enjoyed the rolls and apps. They have edamame but not on menu.

    Omg, y'all. I am drinking the best negroni I've ever had in my life, and I've been drinking them for years and years. By any means necessary, go to Japonessa and order one of these from Cameron.

    Super bad boy roll. You won't regret it. Get it during happy hour...but they're pretty tricky. If you're gonna do take-out during HH, they will charge your sushi regular price. Beware.

    Had a phenomenal dinner here after having watched a musical at the 5th ave. Miso soup and the Seattle rolls were AMAZING.

    They have a lot of elaborate rolls, that are very comercial, that's why I think is a bit overpriced. The service was very good though and so was their simple yellow tail sashimi.

    Slowly savor the Tempura Brie with the Raspberry Soy Sauce. This is not a delicacy to just be dipped and pounded. Try it w/ a nice sweet nigori sake. And don't forget the bad boy roll! Rolls = HUGE.

    Great Sushi & decor but its a busy place and tends to have a waiting time of about more than 30 mins around dinner time.

    You gotta get here during Happy Hour, goings until 8pm in the bar/lounge. Food & drink deals that make it affordable to eat here.
