Brings back our trip to Japan

Best overall Asian market. Nice gift sets of cracker assortments. Book store was very good. Parking fee depends on how much you buy.

I love everything about this place except for the customer service. The cashiers are great but two of those on the floor are, for a lack of better word, useless. These two young men on the floor exerted zero effort in helping me find what I needed. Okay, maybe they exerted 1% effort. I have been to other Asian markets... More

While primarily an Asian market, Uwajimaya is a worthy destination for anyone interested in food! Checkout the spices, fresh seafood, seasonal specialties, unique serveware - hard to take it all in! The fast food court is loaded with options - worth an add on stop!

There is also a fine regular grocery selection but it does have a wider variety of asian food supplies. The food court has... More

The bookstore and grocery store were a great stop for my husband and I while in Seattle. There are not many attractions in Chinatown, but this was worth a stop if you're in the area. Good location for local culture.

If you can't find it here, I'm pretty sure it's not Asian. Fun place to browse and eat. Very extensive bookstore.

Huge grocery store with a very nice food court with several options. While walking around Chinatown we stumbled upon this place and although I wasn't hungry at the time I was amazed by all the hot food options and the food court space was a nice addition to this market. The store looked rather large and had everything you could... More

This place is awesome they offer a wide selection decent prices for the United States and even a fast food counter that you can get a very good bite at a decent price. You can't beat their prices on rice and sauces

I love this place. So many choices of Japanese, Korean and seafood at incredible prices. Large supply of Asian plates and bowls. Wish we had one where we live☹️!!
