Going into this restaurant was like time traveling back to when I first moved to the Big Island in 1969, and developed my taste for Japanese food in cool funky Japanese restaurants. These in turn were like mom and pop neighborhood restaurants in Japan, where I later lived for a few years. Not fancy, just very good food at a... More

Small family run restaurant with the best sushi in Seattle. Friendly service and the freshest fish around. Go early or be prepared to wait for a table; the food is worth the wait!

We went to this restaurant because a friend recommended it. The sushi and sashimi are excellent: very fresh, good portion and not expensive at all. The staff is friendly and efficient. The lady owner actually struck a conversation with us, and made us feel very welcome when she found out we were from out of town. She even gave my... More

Toyoda is a small Mom & Pop joint run by a small Japanese family, The Dad makes the sushi and sashimi and the wife and daughters serve the guest. This place will rank the highest for full value for money. We ordered one sashimi dinner between two of us and were served a platter of 4 to 6 pieces of... More

This is not fine Russian-style table service. As food is ready, it comes to the table, regardless of the order you'd expect it. So don't be surprised if an appetizer shows up between the main course and dessert. The food is good, the service passable, and the place is very lively. Great selection of sake and very fine sushi.

Toyoda serves really good sushi. Be sure to go early as the wait for a table can be quite long. I saw a review about better service at the bar, so we waited for the bar and were quite happy with our meal.

I've been going to Toyoda Sushi for about 20 years, for good reason. Hands down, they have the best sushi and sashimi in Seattle. And I'm picky; I'm from Japan. Their restaurant is tiny, and there is often a line to be seated, but it's definitely worth the wait.

Bit on the pricier side - should have realized that the restaurant does not cater to average diners when I notice the absence of "Bento" box specials on the menu. Went on a Sunday night for dinner - place was packed and we were in a rush - but happy to get our orders in timely fashion. Dinner for three... More

My husband and I visited Toyoda Sushi on a suggestion and ordered the sashimi dinner. It was both beautifully presented and melt in your mouth. I've never had sushi this good! I highly recommend sitting at the bar to enjoy watching the talented and humorous chefs.
