This restaurant is amazing: fish quality is very high, portions are big, and prices are very reasonable. The only downside is that the restaurant is very small, and lines are often long.

Although I have never dined at the restaurant, I think this place is a local gem for sushi lovers. I frequently order a chirashi bowl for a take out and it is always amazing! This restaurant is very small and has very limited seating, which is why you normally see a line of people waiting outside for their seats. I'm... More

my favourites here are the chirashi bowl and unagi don. apparently on my last visit they have uni sushi, which i tried and apparently good too. even though there is always a long queue, the food tastes so good it's worth to wait.

Sushi was delicious at a great price. Highly recommend! For $12.50, it is an unbelievable deal. Thumbs up

We'd been warned that this little place gets crazy busy for dinner, so we went super early on a Friday (before 6pm) and were seated immediately. The rolls were plainer than I'm used to, but delicious. Friends ordered sushi nigiri--the biggest slabs of sushi I've ever seen, presented on tiny portions of rice. We were all very happy with our...

After my son picked me up at the airport, it was a race against the clock to make it to Musashi's before their lunch closing time at 2:30 pm. Thankfully arriving late ensured that there was no wait time and we were served promptly. The Chrirachi bowl has a good amount of sushi for a decent price and is served... More

Our visiting family enjoyed a diverse, fresh and unique dinner by just ordering Chef bowls and the Chef sushi. Fabulous and fresh. Flavors were complex. It was a tiny bit crowded and we felt the staff were hurrying people in and out. It made for a rushed dinner. We would have preferred to be able to savor each dish.

Musashi's is a hidden gem of a sushi place in the Wallingford neighborhood in Seattle. The chrirashi bowl is your best bet for a good amount of sushi (~20 pieces) over a bed of rice for an affordable price. Their rolls are all simple, but they satisfy. If you go at a popular hour, expect to wait. Their takeout is... More

I had chirashi bowl, which was one of the icons of this place, for my first visit. Fish was fresh although not of outstanding quality. And the rice underneath was flavorless, which was its largest drawback. It's really cheap so I guess I can't really expect too much. However, there were people telling me that this is one of the...
