Fodor's Review

Shiro Kashiba is the most famous sushi chef in Seattle; he's been in town for more than 40 years, and still occasionally takes the time to helm the sushi bar at his popular restaurant. If you get a seat at the sushi bar in front of Shiro, don't be shy—this is one place where ordering omakase (chef's choice) is a must. Willfully unconcerned with atmosphere, this simple spot is a real curiosity amid Belltown's chic establishments, though it does seem to be charging Belltown prices for simpler pleasures like teriyaki and tempura dinners. New fans have been drawn in by the documentary film Jiro Dreams of Sushi, which features Shiro's Tokyo mentor, Jiro Ono; one of Jiro's other protégés, Daisuke Nakazawa, now works at Shiro's, where he's training to take over as Kashiba's successor.
