Tokyo tasted – I am picky about food, and simply put Jasmine has the best Sushi in Seattle. All of the Sushi is fresh and excellently prepared. The seared albacore is exceptional just like when i was eatting it in tokyo, as is the salmon. In truth, everything is exceptional. If you are adventurous, ask the chef to make you a role of their choosing. I have never been disappointed when I have done this.
Glad I found this place – A few of my friends decided to go out and have lunch today and had no clue where. We walked along forth and came across jasmine, we figured why not. Glad that we stopped in. The food was amazing. We shared a few dishes. We've had sushi in the area before but nothing compared to what we had. The fish was fresh and the combinatins in the rolls were exqusite. Glad we didn't read any prior reviews and had the experience for ourselves. The staff were friendly and fast.Our server in perticular was helpful in giving his opinion on which rolls we should try and he did a good job in his selections. We will be comming here for more sushi..
A pleasant surprise – My wife and I decide to try Jasmine since we never been there. When I heard the name Jasmine I thought we were going to a Thai restaurant. Once we arrived at the restaurant we were pleasantly surprised, it was a Sushi Restaurant. The look and feel of the restaurant was a clean and hip place to hang out. We ordered several sushi rolls and a bottle of Sapporo. The sushi was fresh and professional presented. My wife thought the caterpillar roll was cute. She took a picture of it on her cell phone. Overall a pleasant surprise we will go again.
So GROSS! Watch out for non-handwashing employees – Have been many times. Service is always slow even with no other customers. Most employees are on their laptops/bluetooths. Even worse, we ordered sushi and watched the sushi chef rubbing his eyes with the palms of his hands, putting in his bluetooth and messing with his ear, using his laptop and cell phone and then when he got our order, he walked to the sushi counter, stuck his hands in the rice and started to make our meal. He did not wash his hands. We even got a photo of it! So gross. We were the only customers and the waiter told us we were the only ones for five days because of the weather. We are not going back.
Bet you never expected salsa at an Asian place! – This is sooo cool! Asian food then a latin dance night! Good thing I went friday night. It was cool going for dinner then staying for a little dancing. I loved it! I especially loved that I burned off calories while dancing. Made me want some more of that tasty rice. lol
Jasmine Restuarant and Lounge, 4th Ave. Seattle – I have been here more than once and I really like the food. It is less pricey and less pretentious than other nearby restaurants that serve similar dishes, like O'Asia, Wild Ginger and Purple. The sushi bar does an excellant job and the salads and entrees have been uniformly tasty. The owner, a young energetic woman named Hai, always has a nice word for everyone. It is just a very comfortable place to go for a very nice meal.
Great place – We made reservations for 6:15 on Saturday, but really didn't need them. We were there for about 1.5 hours and there were only a few other people, which we could not understand at all. The honey walnut prawns were amazing as was all the other food. We got a couple specailty rolls of which they have a large list. The sushi is fresh and tasted wonderful. The atmosphere is quiet and somewhat dark and could work for a romantic evening. The drink menu with saki mixed drinks was good as well, try the Saki Smash. The service was great. He came by and checked on us often enough and the food came fast. Overall, I will definitey be returning to this place. Would be good for a happy hour I think.
avoid every night – horrible service--do not go here. no servers and only one bartender (who's too busy talking) serve the restaurant. my friends and i waited 15 minutes before we got service and the food is overpriced. the sushi is alright, much better places if you head to belltown
Lucky find – First of all, I didn't know this place had sushi. They should really let the word out, seeing as how there is no sushi in this part of downtown, and that it's actually really damn good. I've been twice now, and will be back soon. The first time I stopped for a drink, and decided to order happy hour food. I had a spicy tuna and a california roll. The spicy tuna seemed pretty standard, the california I noticed was full of real crab meat... for 4 dollars - nice. The second time, i sat at the strange looking sushi bar so I could talk to the chef. He seemed to know a lot about everything, from the dwindling tuna population to the manufacturing of sake to the history of sushi. Some of his answers were pretty long winded, but informative. The place was pretty slow when I went, so I guess he had time. I was told the place recently went through some changes so it hasn't been that busy. That works for me, since I was getting sick of having to wait for good sushi
Fun place, great food – Had we read some of these reviews, we might not have stopped at Jasmine. I'm not sure what happened to those other people, but our experience was great. The 'martini' was excellent, the appetizers were out before we finished our first drink, my buddy said the sushi was great, and the bartender seemed genuinely interested in hearing us rant about our jobs. The only thing that could be mistaken for bad service was the tongue lashing the bartender gave the drunken idiot at the other end of the bar. Its nice to see someone in Seattle be something other than passive aggressive! Fun place, we'll be back...
