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!

So if I lived by I would come here. It was fresh, fast and tasty. I think it could be even better if the rice had more texture. the flavor of the rice was clean and not have to much vinegar. Worth a go!

This place was utterly delicious. We tried a variety of different sushi as you can see on the plate and it was just phenomenal. The service was excellent as well

We have been going to Gari for years now. Sashimi is always fresh, we really enjoy the Escolar and Hamachi. Specialty Rolls, Gyoza Soup and the baked mussels are super yummy, we like everything on the menu! Owner / Sushi Chef always greets us with a smile and starts preparing our Sashimi order before we ask, and the staff is... More

We visit Gari of Sushi a few times a year. It's not the best in the Sea-Tac area, but it's high on the list. The food is nicely prepared, the service is always quick, and the atmosphere is open and not overdone. Prices are average for a sushi restaurant. If you need to satisfy a sushi itch in the area,...

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 Katsudonburi - breaded pork cutlet with egg and vegetables topped on a bowl of steaming... More

Based on the recommendation of a coworker and reviews online, my friend and I tried this place out. We did not have a good experience and will not be returning. When my friend asked if she could have something extra added to the sushi roll she wished to order, she was told a flat, "No" in an impolite way. And... More

The ingredients were fresh, from the salmon to the perfectly ripened avacados. The cooked food rolls were perfect for a dreary day. Just the right amount of crunch in the rolls, either from snappy cucumbers or tempura. If you want a some really good food, head over to Gari of Sushi in Tacoma. Just a few blocks away from the...
