Leave it the hands of the chef and you won't be disappointed! If you can get seated near the chef, the experience is even better. The texture, flavor and freshness of all the fish were impressive. My favorite dishes were the octopus and halibut cheeks. $60 for Omakase dinner and well worth every penny!

We tried out Nishino as part of the Dine Around Seattle promotion. Overall, a good experience - exquisite sushi (not too "fishy" tasting), good tempura, good miso soup, and delish mochi for dessert! The ambiance is nice - the restaurant is

Pros: Great sushi, convenient location

Cons: Expensive

The food is good and I like the atmosphere. Service is pretty good too! However, it's way over price and finding parking is not easy on Friday nights

I was visiting friends in Seattle and heard great things about Nishino- being a sushi fanatic, it seemed like a no-brainer choice on my trip to the Northwest from LA. I made an 8:00 Friday reservation 3 days in advance. We arrived 5

Pros: A "Zen sand garden" is provided in the waiting room to assist in bringing down stress levels as you wait for your table

Cons: An experience not unlike waiting for your plane at Chicago's O'Hare airport during a January blizzard.

Pretty good Sushi, but not much of a Japanese feel to the place. More for the trendy type, serious Sushi lovers will be happy here, but there are better places in town.

I particularly recommend the omokase, or chef's choice. It consists of 6-10 courses of whatever the chef has planned. If you like surprises and trying new things this is the way to go. It has been a while, but last time I was there it cost approximately $100 per person, which was quite reasonable for the meal we had.

Two notes: (1) definitely make reservations, it is a popular place and (2) there are two omokase menus, the "special pre-order" one and the regular one. I have only had the regular one, so that is what I am reviewing.

Went here in March for the 30 for 30 menu and have gone back ever since. I love sushi and sashimi but mostly sashimi. I try not to mess too much with the rice since it takes up valuable stomach space. \r

My coworkers and I (from Washington DC) were looking for a good sushi restaruant Saturday night, while in Seattle for business. Well we definitely lucked out. To start with, finding the location is simple. It is up one of the main roads

Sushi is very fresh especially my favorite sushi - tako (octopus). If you don't like raw fish, you should try teriyaki beef - medium. The beef is very fresh and soft which is worth for money. Although the sushi is pricey, it worths every

Pros: Very fresh sushi, very tasty teriyaki beef, easy to park on weekdays

Cons: pricey, service, making reservation in advance; otherwise

Really excellent sushi. Nishino serves some of the best toro I've had anywhere. They also have Sochu, a hard to find Japanese liquor, that scratched a craving I've had since my last trip to Japan.\r

After an arduous tour of Seattle sushi, we found ourselves always longing for Nishino. The Sake choices are superb, and the sushi chefs are awesome. Masa, one of the head chefs, will make anything that you can imagine, and if you ask him

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant in Seattle. Prices are good for the quality of the food. 2 can eat well for around 50 - 70 dollars depending on what you order. Even the rice is super premium and you can taste the difference. Try

This place rocks. The quality of fish is unparalleled. The originality of the specials keeps me coming back week after week. It's probably the best sushi on the west coast... no kidding. The owner is super friendly.
