Great sushi and great Kansai comfort food – The restaurant is under new owndership (a8 months now) and they've made a significant improvement on the quality of the food.
We had some very fresh very good quality chutoro, hirmame, hotate and uni, and the rest of the fish was quite fresh and above average.
We also had the Tuna Poke (excellent), an Okonomiyaki (best I've had in Seattle - far better than Tsukushinbo's e.g.), and a mixed tempura (better than many I've had). All in all both the kitchen and the itamae are great.
There's a lot of commitment here as well. The manager and itamae are both co-owners and newlyweds.
It is a strip-mall store front, and it's clean and tidy inside but somewhat plain. The prices reflect that though, which also makes this one of the best bargains in great sushi in Seattle.
Perfect Japanese Restaurant. – The food there is highly delicious after the new manager had took over. I've gone for many years and the food tastes GREAT! Even though the location may not be as good, the food is not expensive and tastes delicous that can fill you up. You have to try the Special. This Japanese Restaurant is probably better than any others located in Seattle since many of them are expensive and does not fill you up with great food. Very Nice Staffs =] ! Keep up the Great work!
Stay away from the raw fish there – Have been there before, the lunch bento special is usually pretty good and nicely priced. We ordered the Bento with sushi and sashimi, the hot food was good but the raw fish smelled/tasted fishy (a really bad sign). Didn't think anything of it so I ate it all. Felt terrible all afternoon and had to skip dinner. It was a case of food poisxxing. I knew someone who got sick there before but didn't think it would happen to me. If you go, make sure you order the hot food only unless if you want to take the risk of getting food poisxxing.
Daimongji -Great New Management! – I want to introduce to those who love Japanese food that Daimonji Japanese Restaurant is where worth a try. The food quality of this restaurant is increasing after the new owner take over the restaurant. The combination of the food is just fabulous that I can taste it with every bite. This is our family Japanese Restaurant that we want to share this happiness to everyone. I guarantee that you can't find such a good special combination with low price in seattle.
The Best Japanese Restaurant in Seattle! – Daimonji Japanese Restaurant is the best food combination restaurant in the whole Seattle.
You got to taste their special, it's so good.
Although they are kind of slow, but it's understandable, because they are a small restaurant and their waitress told me that they have to put everything on a tray so it takes time.
I went to so Many Japanese Restaurant, I had never taste this combination that got everything and it's not over 20 dollars!!!
The staffs are also very friendly.
This is my favorite restaurant in Seattle, if you are not in a hurry for your dinner, I recommend you to go to Daimonji and enjoy their food.
Decent for a neighborhood restaurant – Service is often very slow, food is average. This place is just down the hill from my home and I was hoping it would become my regular spot, but the sushi is only average and price is kinda high compared to quality. Staff are friendly, but I don't understand how the service can be so slow when the place is typically not that full and there are several waitresses on standby. Most sushi places I've been to also seem cleaner and have better ambience.
Disappointment – We really wanted to like this place -- just back from Japan and desparate to find good Okonomiyaki. It's not here, though... house mix is bland and tame. Sushi is pretty good, but priced on the high side ($3-$5/2pc order for nigiri). Chicken teriyaki was very fatty, almost like duck. We went for dinner on a Sunday night, not very busy but service was confused and a bit slow anyway. For $40+ without drinks, we left feeling unsatisfied.
Good Quality, Fair Prices – This is a great neighborhood joint. I've been to many other Japanese restaurants in Seattle, but this one has great dishes at a fair price. The fish is always fresh and the California rolls are some of the best I've had in town. Naka, Hama and the staff are friendly and although the service is slow at times, it's due largely to the full restaurants that always pulls a large crowd at lunch and dinner.
Good for lunch or dinner – Tasty food. Good sushi, especially the spider rolls. Love the black cod as well. Service can be slow at times as the place is always busy when I've been there. But give it a try!
