This place is the best. Everything is fresh and well portioned. You won't be disappointed even if you opt for the cooked side of the menu. I'd pick Gari's over any fancy city sushi joint and we have visited quite a few.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and had a hard time deciding what to order with their large menu. The staff was very friendly and the sushi was good. I have had better, but yes, I would recommend!

The unassuming exterior hides a gem of a restaurant in Tacoma's Lincoln District. The updated, interior with glass blown fish art is always clean and comfortable. Good Japanese food with good, fresh ingredients. The sushi is always a winner but my personal favorite is the...More
