This place - which my S.O. and I constantly frequent - is simply addictive. Whether it's their sushi rolls, their gyoza, or their nicely slushy Mango Madness, there's a lil something for every palate. The servers are very friendly, speaking clearly, at the right volume and enunciation, and with a genuine smile. The lighting is excellent, plus the quirky Hawaiian-style decor is always a treat to behold. Lastly, you can order via a pencil-and-paper checklist of all the sushi/sashimi offerings! Belltown can be hit-or-miss when it comes to ambience and service (many of them are not well-lit, and cacophonic), so this is my oasis.
Great food. Friendly staff (IN-person). But I got one mega-beef with how repeatedly inept their staff is at taking my relay calls: "(announcing relay call) We don't do those here at the restaurant ... thank you (PERSON HUNG UP)" is the most annoying thing to be reading on your laptop screen when you're trying to make last-min. reservations for Thanksgiving or Valentine's Day :(
WTF does a restaurant mean by telling me to my digital face that they don't do relay calls?!
