It's been out favorite place for Sushi and other Japanese entrees. The lead waitress is amazing and knows each one of my family and asks how they are every time I'm there. The sushi guys are wonderful as well, one of them even let me try an extra roll he'd made for himself! We've been here dozens of times a year since they've opened and plan to continue! Keep up the great work! Sean. <p>I&rsquo;ve been coming to Tsukushinbo, with my family, since I was a teenager. It&rsquo;s been out favorite place for Sushi and other Japanese entrees.

And there were no signs anywhere, so my friend and I just walked in and hoped it was the right restaurant. Luckily, I spotted a menu on a table and could read the Japanese "?????" on it. Saved us from awkwardly asking "Are we in the right restaurant??". I had heard this place was super popular, but surprisingly we were able to snag the last empty table there (without reservations!) around dinnertime. My friend and I wanted to try the Katsu Curry Donbori, but that was the only thing not available on the menu that night (sadface)! We opted for the Katsu Donbori instead. The portion was pretty big, but it was mostly rice. We also ordered the Caterpillar Roll, the Rainbow Roll, and Sake Nigiri. Everything tasted good (didn't really "wow" me though), and the service was fantastic, even though it was busy. I do still want to try their curry and ramen special sometime!

One of the rare places around here that seems to make it according to my research. Apparently it's a modern ritual for Japanese students to enjoy this the night before exams because katsu sounds like "to be victorious!" (Thanks Wikipedia). So naturally I sought it out for future use prior to my Board exams. So simple, homey, and delicious. The sauce was a good amount of sweetness and it came with a bowl of miso to warm the soul. It also came with your choice of chicken or pork. Definitely coming back for it before my next exams. <p>Came back for the katsu don.

There are no signs outside of the restaurant, so just make sure you find the address "517" and go right next door. My friend and I made a reservation to the restaurant for dinner on a Friday evening, and making a reservation alone was a hassle (my only criticism). I tried calling MANY times during lunch hours the same day, and no one picked up the phone (trust me, I called 10+ times...). In their answering machine message, they say to leave them a voicemail if you'd like to make a reservation and they will call you later in the afternoon to confirm. Luckily they called me at 4pm the same day to confirm our reservation. When we got there, we were able to put in our order fairly quickly, even though we were being really indecisive about what to get! We ended up getting gyoza, 2 orders of sashimi rolls (I forgot which fish we got...), the marine roll, white kabuto roll, and seattle roll - ALL delicious!!! In each of the sashimi and sushi rolls, they gave us a generous amount of fish, which definitely was surprising since most other Japanese restaurants are...not so generous when it comes to the fish. We had trouble finishing all of the dishes we ordered and ended up having a couple of pieces of rolls remaining. I also ordered the Chirashi Bowl to go and each piece of sashimi included in the bowl was GINORMOUS! Yes, this restaurant is hard to get to, hard to find, and insanely small. If you do plan on coming here for dinner, you MUST make a reservation or I guarantee you will be waiting in a long line (even though the wait would definitely be worth it!). I can't wait to come here again!! <p>Let me just say&hellip;Tsukushinbo is truly a hidden gem, literally.

My boyfriend and I arrived about 15 minutes before they opened and I was worried we wouldn't get a seat since we could already see a long line forming. Luckily, we got a couple seats at the bar, but getting here early is a good idea. We both ordered the ramen lunch special, which comes with gyoza, rice, and shoyu ramen. The gyoza was good. Nothing special but it was just good. The ramen was pretty delicious too. The portion was kind of small but that's my only complaint. The broth was flavorful. Not too salty and the noodles were good. The star of the show was the pork! It was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My bf really enjoyed it. Also, the price of the special wasn't bad at all. Definitely an awesome lunch special. I just wish I could get it more often (I work on the Eastside). <p>Finally, finally made it here for their Friday ramen lunch special!

We ordered umi, creamy scallop roll, and a combo of saba and Agedashi Tofu and curry soba noodles The food was delicious and fresh. The scallops roll actually contained small whole scallops. Seating is a little bit uncomfortable because the place is packed and tiny.

14297 review-probably-eat-sushi-everyday-tired probably-eat-sushi-everyday-tired http://www.tsukushinbo.feedback/review-probably-eat-sushi-everyday-tired 8 8 8 0 0 0 I could probably eat sushi everyday and never get tired of it.  Do yourself a favor and make a reservation at Tsukushinbo for some delicious sushi! It's a casual but friendly place that's a must try if you're in the International District.   Small and unassuming from the outside, it's a great way to chill with some good friends. We ordered the following, and I would recommend it all! --Braised mackeral (~$7): Tender fish with a lot of savory flavors! Definitely a new way of eating mackeral for me and though I liked the broiled method, this way was so much better! --Spicy Tuna Roll (~$6.50): Good quality tuna that was yummy in my tummy. --Sashimi Plate ($28): My fave of the night! The seafood was so fresh and clean.  The cut of the fish was fairly thick (though the pieces were small/bite size), and paired nicely with the included bowl of rice and miso soup. Overall, I'm two thumbs up to this place, and when I come back, I'll have to try their Katsu and curry! Taste: 4.5 stars Customer Service: 4 stars Atmosphere: 4 stars Cost: 3.5 stars <p>I could probably eat sushi everyday and never get tired of it.  Do yourself a favor and make a reservation at Tsukushinbo for some delicious sushi!

As expected, the restaurant is tiny and probably seats no more than 35 people so reservations are highly encouraged. It was a full house so as our party of 5 was ordering, we were told it was going to take a while for the chef to accommodate our order. We ordered a few things off the cooked menu while we waited: vegetable tempura, soft shell crab karaage (pretty good but would only share with two other people), and broiled salmon belly. The broiled salmon belly is SOO GOOD and would recommend if you like the more common, broiled salmon collar. The texture just melts in your mouth. After 45 mins, we saw the chef pull out this longg wooden board and knew it had to be our order. We got a few orders of their otoro/fatty tuna (part of their special menu), tuna, yellowtail, salmon, sweet shrimp, eel, and uni. We were impressed with the texture and consistency of the fish here. The otoro did not disappoint and simply fell apart in your mouth. My second favorite was the eel but the salmon and sweet shrimp were also really exceptional. The fried shrimp heads that follow came out hot, crispy, but not greasy. The fish to rice portion is also good compared to the more Americanized Japanese restaurants here. The service was good considering how busy they are. One negative is only street parking in the area. If you're in the ID, I'd choose Tsukushinbo over Maneki's as long as we get reservations. <p>From the moment you walk through their inconspicuous doors, you know it&rsquo;s going to be one of the best sushi restaurants you will eat at in Seattle.
