    A great place to enjoy fresh nigiri and straightforward rolls, or put yourself in Ryuichi Nakano's capable hands and let him guide you to whatever's especially good that day. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Great neighborhood spot to grab sushi. Not the best in town but you won't be disappointed. Get anything with Salmon on it.

    Every year sushi fanatics anoint Seattle's best hidden sushi joint, and every year Kisaku seems to win that title. The place is always packed. How secret, really, can this place be? Read more

    Try the shinmi #2 (secret menu item) and the Wallingford roll (along with your choice of yummy nigiri!).

    If you want good omakase, sit at the sushi bar with the head chef, Nakano-San.
