There was an episode of the television series, "The Office", titled "A Benihana Christmas", in which it is referred to as an, "Asian Hooters".

I don't believe that seattlenextyear meant anything negative...

For those who live in Lynnwood, there is a small but very popular Japanese restaurant called Matsu. It is located in the strip mall just east of Fed Meyer. This place is small but the food and the service is excellent.

If you want GOOD authentic Korean...(and I did a year in Korea...and I can attest..this place is freaking authentically awesome) try Sa Rang Chae on Front Street in Issaquah. Actually, forget I mentioned it. I wanted to keep it a secret. But I want them to have lots of business, too. Drat.

Heres a review from another site.
The Korean BBQ here is simply awesome and its much cheaper to eat here than other Korean places in Seattle. The meat is very well marinated. BBQ meat portions are big and everything tastes yummy with OB (if you like korean beer)

Note: the service here is definitely not the best, with the staff speaking very limited english and mostly korean. its a very mom and pop like korean restaurant.
Also, go during late hours and not sat evening, when its busy and the 2 staff are way overbooked.

Don't do like me the first time...... I ordered two dishes 'cuz I'm a big dude (250lbs) and I like to get full. Ermm...I got full on one dish.

I was the only white guy in there. I think my wife was the only Japanese. And the rest..were ..whaddya know... korean people having a great time. If you're one to shy away from a chef/waitress/clerk...everyone speaking (really) limited English..I wouldn't go there. But I got by. I don't speak Korean. (neither does she) and we had a great time with the kids. The menu's in English...and you can always point. And smile.

Are you talking about this Sa Rang Chae:


I agree, the restaurant is pretty good. We should have a separate link on Korean Restaurants where we can list all the good Korean restaurants in WA.

Default Japanese Gourmet

Japanese Gourmet
82 Stewart Street (between First Ave. and Pike Place)

I ate there each time I've visited Seattle, and it wasn't too bad of a lunch stop. Even though it was in a touristy area.

Joe,

That restaurant is okay but it is not one of the top Japanese restaurants. There are many others that are way way better.

The special thing about Japanese Gourmet Restaurant is that it has a 1/2 off special between 3-6PM on their sushi and drinks.

Thanks for all this information! I love good sushi. At the moment I am in Hamburg, Germany and although we have excellent fish, the sushi is sub par and at ridiculous prices. I miss my days in Southern California, with decent sushi on every block.

Nobody has mentioned anything about price in any of their postings. I'm interested in the mid-range places - inexpensive enough that I can go there frequently but not so cheap that I wouldn't want to eat the food!

Nah, most major cities along the west coast have large Japanese populations. There's plenty of them in LA, SF, San Jose, OC (in particular, Costa Mesa), even San Diego. Portland ain't bad either.

I agree though, there are some really good Japanese restaurants in Seattle. Tsukushinbo in the International District comes to mind. For homestyle food, Takohachi. Also, there was some place in the U-Dist. that I don't remember the name of, but they have cheap main dish/veggie/rice combos & croquettes!!

Blossom Asian Bistro in downtown Renton has absolutely awesome spider rolls, and is kind of an upscale but casual Japanese/Vietnamese fusion place.
