15 Best Sushi Restaurants In Seattle

When you ask a sushi-phile to describe the experience of eating their favorite raw fish, you'll get a long-winded and passion-filled sermon about how absolutely celestial every bite is and how the flavors whisk them away briefly to a mental Shangri La of delicate oceanic flavors that erupt onto every taste bud. Now, that might sound over-the-top to some, but for those obsessed with sashimi, nigiri, and hand rolls, that's exactly the experience they chase every time they sit down at a sushi counter and eagerly await the chef to skillfully cut perfectly sized pieces of fish and arrange them in an aesthetically intricate display that serves as a feast for both the eyes and mouth. To many, sushi is more than just a cuisine — it's a culinary experience that lives on in their memories long after they leave the restaurant.
