Saito's is arguably the best sushi bar in seattle and is reasonably priced for the quality of sushi you get. And of course, only eat a sushi bar where a Japanese chef is preparing. It takes 20+ years (or something crazy like that) to become a sushi chef in japan so if you are going to eat raw fish mind as well go with experience.
Here's my personal ranking based on quality and price
3. there is this place up in greenlake i'm forgetting the name right now.
4. BlueC (decent value, the one in U village is a little better quality than freemont, but you have to put up with U village)
there there are others that are all about the same
- place up on olympic place, lower queen anne
- Ototo up on the top of queen anne - decent
- shiro's in belltown - decent but a little pricey
- wasabi bistro - decent but so incredibly over priced its ridiculo.
but, at the end of the day, you always come back and compare the sushi to 2 place, Saito and Nishino.
if you don't think Saito's is that solid, then sakes on me.
