    One of the best sashimi and rolls I have ever had. We got the sashimi sampler, a great spicy poke dish, the cucumber seaweed salad, and two rolls that were to die for. I'll totally come back here.

    One of the best sushi places in Seattle. Order the chef's selection of Sashimi, the tako poké and the monk patè. End your meal with some Mochi and try all the flavors.

    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!!!

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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

    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.
