Seattle >Food & Dining > Okinawa Teriyaki
Citysearch Editorial Review. A storefront directly under Seattle’s doomed waterfront viaduct is a precarious position, but Okinawa Teriyaki still opens up every day, ladling out bowls full of rich broth, just-chewy-enough noodles and the meat of your choice. The teriyaki for which this store is named is really more of an afterthought, though they’ll dish you up an enthusiastic portion of the average Seattle fare if you please. What most people are here for, though, is the ramen. Eating in can be less than pleasant, a dingy hallway of basement-like space, so warm your hands on your plastic container as you make your way back to your office.

I love their food, esp. the katsu out of all menus. I've never thought there is a difference among teriyaki places until I stopped by this small teriyaki place located in seattle downtown. They should have a lot of delicious foods there, but I'm gonna stick with this katsu and try others later. Enjoy!
I love this place. Lunch time is crazy... call ahead. and dont be scared of this place. By appearance its definetly considered a hole in the wall. The food is great and they will make any food request you have. I go here at least once a week and have stumbled upon a combo of spicy-Teriyaki W/ veges and rice. or for a 7.95 get the lunch combo with more than your heart could ever desire. eggroll goyoza edamame its got it all.. BEst Teriyaki in seattle
Do you dare? You should!.
Tourists with an hour to get to an event, we scanned the internet for about 3 minutes for Chinese/Japanese food. Okinawa Teriyaki popped up as downtown and vegetarian friendly. When we got there, we hesitated to enter. It was empty at 5:15 on a Thursday, hmmm, odd. The tables and worn bench seating didn't help convince us. But, we were running out of time, and we were hungry.
I ordered the tofu & fresh veggies (the dish name escapes me) and my partner ordered the mushroom chicken (regular, not spicy). We sat down with our styrofoam cups & plastic utensils and waited. Not too long afterwards, two steaming plates were presented with large portions. It smelled wonderful. It was gorgeous to look at. It tasted even better.
Fresh vegetables, perfectly sticky rice, and a sauce that sits just right on the tasty/sweet/salty/thick meters make this a definite thumbs up!
