    Love the sashimi (let the chef choose) and selection of sake. One of the best sushi places in town and a wonderful experience (if you can get in-reservations recommended)

    The Omakase - Nami for two is a great deal! And it's actually very filling. I've had a lot of sushi in my life and this restaurant literally changed my life.

    I'll never eat sushi anywhere else in Seattle again! Sit at the sushi bar & leave everything to Chef Hajime - you'll be in good hands!!!

    Leave it up to the chef and try an omakase!

    Wish I could remember the names of the plates but we randomly picked from sashimi to nigiri and even good old American style rolls and it all tasted great.

    I'm an avid sushi lover; this place is mediocre at best. The only highlight is that the fish they use is sustainable.

    Jason McClure, chef of Sazerac Restaurant & Bar, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Grilled saba w/ dill. Read more

    They pride themselves on a fully sustainably-fished menu, and a sassy attitude is all part of their schtick — but the servers are knowledgeable and helpful and want you to enjoy your experience. Read more

    For my money, the best deal on the menu is the 5-course chef's choice menu ($60 for two people), which includes an appetizer, sushi nigiri, a long roll, an entree, and a dessert. Read more

    As an out of tower with a billion good allergies. The server was very knowledgable and the sushi chef was very willing to recommend something that wouldn't make me ill. We were not disappointed.

    Don't let the uni scare you off if it is available. And getting the nami omakase is highly recommended. Made a fantastic anniversary dinner for us

    Omakaze is a must

    Felix Suwito · January 12, 2014
  • Jack B.

    The best sushi in Seattle and among the best on the west coast taking into account creativity, quality, and consistency. Hajime kicks ass.

    Jack Benway · August 28, 2013
  • Leah B.

    Atomically tuna, California rolls, and red violin!! EXCELLENT!!

    A groundbreaking sustainable seafood restaurant. Be sure to follow all of Hajime's rules (posted on the website, in the menu, and all over the restaurant) and you're in for a great meal.

    Order the snowflake sushi as your final roll for a tasty treat! By far, the best sushi in West Seattle and amongst the best I've ever had. Make a reservation, this place is popular for good reason.

    David Newman · July 26, 2013
  • Doug B.

    Sustainable, creative and delicious. This is one of the premier sushi joints in Seattle if not the country. Make reservations as the small space fills up quickly. There is nothing that isn't amazing.

    Three words... Uh. Maze. Ing.

    The sushi at this West Seattle spot is just as popular as the mispronunciation of its name. It's pronounced MAH-shee-koh.

    The Red Violin roll is delicious, the best on the spicy list

    Rachel Lin · September 14, 2011

    Try the spicy and very delicious red violin. The dancing shrimp is also milder and phenomenal. Best miso soup in the city.

    my home away from home (Japan). not so homesick after discovering this place. Chawanmushi, kushi katsu, agedashi-dofu is one of the best I've had in a long time. 有難う、Hajime-さん

    Best sushi restaurant in Seattle and Hajime has done a wonderful job with researching sustainable sources of fish. Sit at the bar and get the Omakase. You won't be disappointed and come ready to eat

    Many know this sushi joint more from its Web address: There's a live webcam of its sushi bar. Check out the women's bathroom, which has Japanese toilets that squirt warm water. Read more

    Stroll on California: visit Carmelia's, Easy Street, other locals. Have a coffee at Uptown or Hotwire or Ladro. At 5:03, Go to Mashiko and eat whatever you are told to by the sushi chef. Read more

    Hajime and Mariah make life-changing Omakase. Wash it down with delicious sake from their extensive collection. Ask them and they'll pair sake with your meal.

    Go to Mashiko for sushi. If you like the taste of hamachi, order the kampachi. If you like the taste of bbq eel, try the Southern roll with catfish.

    Phoebe K · November 10, 2009
  • budo ..

    Get the 'expert' chirashi. And eat it the right way (yes that includes eating the rice).
