I want to say that the cuisine in this place is above average and all that we ordered tasted so good. I will take my wife in here in our anniversary.

Kisaku is amazing. I've gone at least once a week since it opened. I highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar. Nakano-san and Shimi always come up with really creative things, and all the food is always amazing. Take a minute to ask

Pros: Great fresh fish. Great entrees. Great desserts.

Cons: Parking can be annoying if your new to the neighborhood.

I have been to Kisaku a few times now and every experience is different. There is always a great variety of fresh seafood and the servers are very knowledgeable about the menu. I was a bit of a novice on my first visit and I was directed

Okay, I'll admit it, Kisaku isn't the "quickest" restaurant around. (That's the only reason I didn't give a full 5 stars.) You might have to wait for a table, but there's a reason for that, and that reason is because people know good sushi

Pros: Fine, fresh fish, contagious energy

Cons: Yeah, yeah, yeah, long waits sometimes.

I have been to this restaurant three times, but only eaten there once. Why? Because the last two times I've been there, it's taken 5-10 minutes just to be acknowledged by the host, who is too busy working the phones to talk to the actual

This was a great sushi joint! We tried the chef's choice sashimi, but nigiri style. All I can say is DAMN! I recommend the chefs choose your sushi, cuz it is the bomb. The service was less than spectacular, but if you order at the

I love sushi, and I eat it all the time, and I really do think this delivers for the freshest, tastiest cuts without any of the attitude of those downtown places. Sure, you pay a bit more than some other places, but I really appreciate

Pros: Awesome kindly chef, palate-expanding food

Cons: Must admit I still don't like raw shrimp. Glad we called ahead and only had to wait a few minutes to be seated.

I like it!!! I finally found a sushi restaurant than is very reasonably price and taste good. All the sushi special rolls are less than $8-can't find that around in Seattle.

A friend and I went for the first time today. The restaurant was clean and inviting, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The sushi, tempura, and yaki soba were all delicious. The iced tea was alright, we suspect it was Nestea

We go to Kisaku at least once every 2 weeks - the best sushi in Seattle. Ask for omakase (chef's choice) if you are adventurous - Nakano-san and his staff are skilled chefs. We are sushi-heads to be sure, and the quality of fish here

It's a cozy neighborhood sushi restaurant with a wonderful ambience, esp. for dinner. Very fresh fish and there was a great variety. You must get the oysters on a half shell for an appetizer. Not too pricey. It's the highest rated Japanese

Went there for a company anniversary. The restaurant closed itself to the public and let us have free reign. Wonderful toro, and some of the freshest hamachi this side of the Pacific. Attentive and friendly crew. 3 thumbs up!

Kisaku has some great sushi without the high price tag of some of the other top end sushi restaurants in and around Seattle. Their rock Shrimp and Calamari appetizers are worth the trip itself. The chefs are very pesonable and creative.
