Makes you feel as if you are in Japan! – I am Japanese and this place is really Japanese owned restaurant with Japanese chefs.
I want to try all dishes each time I visit, however I just cannot as I really liked Sushi (Omakase:Chef's choice according to freshness/availability of fish of the day). And I just cannot help ordering it all the time!! (there are 8 or 9 pieces of sushis and a roll of californian roll for only $14!! if I remember well).
Fish is always fresh and the quality of rice is not bad at all. I highly recommend this authentic real Japanese sushi restaurant.
Great Sushi Great Restaurant – This homey place welcomed us when we moved to Seattle from San Francisco. On our first forray we tried the oyaku don ($5!!!! HUGE portion!!), nigiri (saba, albacore, hamachi, maguro), agedashi, miso and seaweed salad. The oyaku don was amazing - fresh and not greasy. The agedashi was a little different than I've seen before, but excellent nonetheless. And the sushi... the sushi was amazing. Enormously thick juicy cuts done just right so they melted in your mouth. I can't say enough good things about the quality and quantity of the sushi. And the prices were very reasonable. This place is vying for the top of my sushi favorites list.
The only complaint I have is the awful cheesy American pop they play! But it's easy to ignore in the face of sushi bliss.
first experience...will not be my last – the sushi was great, and the waitress was very helpful. the special "super white tuna" nigiri was delicious. me and a friend selected that for our nigiri in the deluxe combination ($17...what a value you get 7 pieces and a sushi roll of your choice!). it was more than enough for both of us!
Kaki!!! – Try the fried oysters (kaki) with a nice cold beer; not greasy and very crispy. The Crab maki was quite tasty, but the spicy scallop had a bit of an odd taste. Staff was friendly and attentive (plus cute). Menu had a variety of choices.
A-ok!i – I love Aoki.
I have been pleased by each & every dining experience I have had here.
Lots of variety to the menu, so you don't have to be a sushi-fool to enjoy Aoki.
Great sushi, great service – Aoki is by far the best Japanese restaurant in Seattle. Not only is their food delicious, but they also have a wide variety to choose from at low prices. The service is excellent; whenever I go there I get friendly smiles and greetings from the sushi chefs and the servers. The food always comes quickly, and the servers are attentive to your needs. I recommend Aoki without any reservations.
Good sushi on broadway – If you're looking for a great place for sushi while wandering around Broadway, Aoki is a great place to stop in, great unagi and authentic atmosphere as well as other tasty treats are what you'll find here. A little more pricey than some, but definantly worth it.
one of my faves – I've eaten here several times and I've always enjoyed the experience. The sashimi is fresh, the tempura is crispy, and the don-buri dishes bring back rural life in Japan (Think cozy mountain refuge in snow country). My favorite special is tataki, a lightly seared tuna with a tangy soy sauce and wakame, garlic, and ginger. Mmmmmmm. I'd recommend the back room for ambience, but it's fun to sit at the sushi bar, too. Talk to Hitoshi as he prepares the nigiri about golf or baseball; he'll philosophize and entertain. Final thought: Fri thru Sun are busy, so go during the week for faster service. Enjoy!
its decent – sushi was decent....i wouldnt rate it as one of the best i've had..
service was good though..attentive waitresses
its not the best-but its good! – As I live just around the corner- I frequent Aoki quite often, the food is consistent and I cant complain. Fish is always very fresh, and not too pricey.
