Tired of white food for the past few days so wanted some Asian food. We relied on the hotel recommendation again and found this place downtown. It seemed to be a very popular hangout place that night. It was right beside a hotel as well. We walked in with no reservations , there was some space in the lounge so we sat in. The lounge mean that it was really bench and coffee table so not really a fit place to eat long. The service at the lounge was not that great, probably this section is an extra load for the servers so they didn't really like coming around here.
They had "Restaurant Week" here too but the menu didn't look too interesting. So instead we decided to do a la carte. It was pretty pricey here for the sushi. We end up getting the sushi platter and sashimi platter. I didn't have much high expectation as didn't think Washington is much of a Japanese population to serve good sushi.
As it turns out, it was not bad. The fish was really fresh and prepared well. I'm sure it would be more tasty if we were able to sit in the nice decor in the restaurant side.
