Delicious, authentic Japanese food experience that includes a great sushi selection and a lovely sushi bar. However, I go there for the tempura, as they do it so well — they are always fresh, flakey and absolutely fried to perfection.
Excellent food and great suggestions from our server
Wonderful service and excellent food! Thank you!
Sushi Kappo Tamura is consistently awesome. Love coming here for birthdays and other special occasions. The food is exquisite and superb, and the service folks very knowledgeable and helpful. Hooray for Sushi Kappo Tamura!
Great food and service! Sushi was the best. My friends and I had fun experiencing this fabulous restaurant. We will be coming back for sure! Thank you!
This is one of our favorite places it is always great!
Amazing sushi and Sake. Great and friendly service. Just awesome.
Food was delicious and beautiful! Service was great!
Super fresh and delicious traditional and innovative treats. Small table seating area; counter is the best place to be. Service was friendly, attentive and expeditious. Glad I finally made it to this delightful establishment; cannot wait to return!
They never miss. The best quality fish in the city, prepared perfectly. An extensive Japanese menu, not just sushi. I could eat there twice a week.
The best "neighborhood" spot to make Conde Nast's "10 Best Sushi Restaurants in Seattle".
The food was presented very well, but some of the fish selections were obviously lower quality. Rather than including them as part of the course based meals, it would make more sense to make the courses smaller and more premium.
That being said, the entire experience was excellent. I doubt I’ll be tempted to visit other similar establishments in the area, for I felt much more comfortable at this one.
Kappo Tamura is our go-to place whenever we crave for top quality sushi. The counter table experience is amazing, not only because you can enjoy the nigiri the second it’s ready, but also because you get to see the creation of these beautiful pieces. Taichi-San is accommodating, professional, and fun. Will come back many many times.
Pricey but Tamura is definitely one of the very few sushi restaurants in Seattle which offer high quality fresh ingredients and real authentic preparation techniques.
Every bite was perfect! Will be back!
Delicious. Excellent service. Kindly accommodate dietary restrictions. The only downside: too many great items to choose from and a need to exercise restraint to avoid over-eating. Bravo!
This restaurant is all about great fish. I'm always superbly happy with the freshness of the sashimi and the taste and creativity of the cooked fish dishes. I've never been disappointed.
Always wonderful food, service and ambience
Since first dining at Sushi Kappo Tamura in 2014, it has become my go-to Japanese restaurant in Greater Seattle. I've visited Japan twice, and SKT is very competitive with some of the best restaurants in Tokyo and Kyoto.
If you like sushi, you will love this place. The sashimi was fresh. The yellow tail melts in your mouth. Delicious!
I wish I could bring this lovely restaurant to every city I visit. The food is fresh, delicious, memorable. The service is so lovely.
The food was good but not nigiri. Rice is hard and fish is not fresh
This restaurant is consistently top notch and never disappoints. Hands down my favorite sushi restaurant in the city. Service is very warm and friendly and the food is exceptionally fresh and flavorful.
I love this restaurant! The food is always amazing and the service is always top notch. I’d go there in a heartbeat any day.
We come here at least once a year. It seems, every time we leave we say to ourselves, we really should come here more often! The food is excellent in a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The sushi/sashimi offerings are extensive. We tried a flight of sea urchin sushi (uni) from BC, Maine and Hokkaido (Maine was our favorite; biggest "bang for the buck"). The five of us shared a number of appetizer plates. Karaage chicken, tonkatsu, Black Dragon Roll and Spider Roll. All were excellent. For our main course, all of us chose the Bara Chirashi sushi. A large bowl of rice topped with the chef's choice of sashimi and other items. It was delicious. One other unexpected bonus: from 5-6pm every bottle of wine is half price! Our New Year's Resolution for 2019? Come back to Sushi Kappo Tamura more often!
This was our first time in and we loved it! The 5 course meal with sake pairing was perfect. We can’t wait to come back!
So good. Quality fish and good quantity. Attentive staff and quick service but did not feel rushed.
Some of the best sushi I’ve ever had.
Everything was so flavorful.
A little pricey for what you got but worth it after eating it I guess.
The server acted like a bro and was way to loud. Would for ask not to be seated in his section again.
For sure I’ll be back and I’ve already told a ton of ppl about this place.
Great venue to take friends who you want to thank!
Our go-to sushi restaurant. Love the food here and the staff.
definitely some of the best sushi/sashimi in town. love this place.
Sushi Kappo Tamura is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Seattle. The quality of ingredients is superb and the service is wonderful too.
Excellent food and service! Edward was our server and he was great!!
My Wife and I went here for a date night, and we now have our new fav sushi spot in Seattle.
Every meal at Sushi Kappo Tamura is memorable and leaves me wanting to return as soon as I can for another meal. The setting is so pleasant. I love the chawan mushi, the kanpachi and salmon Kama, and the wonderful rolls. Thank you!
Love this sweet place. The food and service are first rate. I have dietary restrictions and everything I’m served is perfection. Thank you!!
Impressed! Although we elected to go for lunch rather than dinner, the menu still presented challenges in terms of what to order. The selection of sushi is extensive and the flavor and ingredient spectrum broad and intense. Everything about Kappo Tamura is first class. Your most challenging aspect of dining here will not be the parking (as some suggest), but choosing which fish and shellfish to sample. What a wonderful dining experience!
This is become our top sushi restaurant in Seattle. We had the Omakase twice (the dishes change with the seasons) and enjoyed it both times.
Good quality of fish
