Had the pleasure of being served by the master taichi and his omakase selection. Amazing sushi, piece after piece. Each served and prepared to perfection. Do yourself a favor and try the full omakase. You will find new tastes and flavors you had never encountered before.

One of the most memorable meals we have had in a long time! We complete let our waiter Edward order for us and the result was fantastic. He taught us how to eat Japanese food differently and took us on a journey through the menu that we would never have discovered. He kept the price to around $100/person which was reasonable. The food here is meticulously prepared and melt in your mouth amazing. We did not leave a single morsel on the table and we have a new favorite place. AMAZING

We’ve been here a few times in the past and have really enjoyed the food although a bit pricey. This time was very good too, however, the service was not up to par. Our server seemed a bit cocky, which on its own would not be a problem, but not the case. First off, he walked away from us right in the middle of taking our order. Didn’t say a word and didn’t come right back. He also never checked on us once we received our food to make sure all was good. And I overheard him make a snide remark to couple next to us who only ordered a few low-cost items and had to leave early. Unfortunately, SKT adds a 20% gratuity to bill automatically.

Went for the omikase menu, and it was delicious. Was disappointed that we couldn't sit at the counter. Was even more disappointed to see the amount of children at the counter ordering edamame and rolls. The counter should be for omikase enjoyers.

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant and I always recommend it to friends however surprisingly this evening the service was on the inattentive side and the food underwhelming. The creme brûlée was outstanding as usual.

Top notch at every turn. Sit at the bar and be educated. No detail is missed by chef, who still finds time for friendly chat and info sharing about local and far flung fish. But most importantly, so fresh and delish. Each omakase course is a delight. Everything was scrumptious!
We'll be back... So much menu

I come here because they offer sustainable seafood sushi. The food is sumptuous, the service is friendly and superior, it's quiet for a chat but not uncomfortably so. My go-to restaurant for getting together with friends and for special occasions.

We loved our dinner! The sushi chefs were very accommodating and kind, though we hadn't sat at the bar before. The oysters were fantastic and the creative desserts were a big hit as well (black sesame icecream, mochi with anko and chestnut creme brulle). I had the chirashi and was impressed by the freshness of the fish and by the little touches in the layering of the tasty ingredients.

This was our first time and it was recommended by local friends. The service was impeccable and we enjoyed both the sushi and the "Ippins". The geoduck appetizer with mushrooms and spinach was delicious and all the sushi was so fresh, each piece from a different region (NW, Japan, etc). Our server was fantastic and made great suggestions. Don't miss dessert. The yuzu panacotta was exceptional as was the chestnut/butterscotch creme brulee. The sake, cocktail and wine list was extensive. Can't wait to come back.

Another great sushi experience at sushi kappo tamura. Matt provided a great omakase course; each piece more wonderful than the last. We couldn’t stop at 12 and asked for 3 more pieces and these were truly amazing. Everything here is fresh and prepared exquisitely. Don’t ask what’s good, just sit back and enjoy the experience.

I took my dad for his birthday and what a great experience! They had a happy birthday note on the table and Edward, our server, went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our lunch. The food was excellent, and I especially appreciated that the menu identified the fish that are sustainable. The substitution of black cod for the traditional Unagi was outstanding. And the icing on the cake was that when the dessert they brought had cream in it, which my dad can't eat, Edward asked the kitchen to make a special mochi cake because he didn't want my dad to miss out on dessert since it was his birthday! I never write restaurant reviews, but this was worth the effort and I'm already looking forward to our next visit.

I had the most delicious lunch and I had gone previously only for dinners. It was the perfect amount of food and so interesting! I will remember it as a place that serves great lunches.
