This is a tired restaurant and it shows in nearly everything. The walls damaged, the menus worn, the kitchen floor filthy, lights burned out and the windows dirty. This should have been our cue to leave before ordering but there had been so many good reviews that we were willing to give the food a try. We ordered a full... More

I just love Chiso, their food is so delicious and their service is superb! I especially love Darren, he is so nice and really aims to please. He goes over and beyond to please customers! They have Happy Hour from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm and you can sample tons of great food at a low price. My 20-mos-old son... More

Very nice ambience. Liked the roasted pea appetizers and the soup. The shrimp tempura rolls are the best.

We've dined at Chiso many times, often during the restaurant's fabulous Happy Hour between 4 and 6 p.m. Never have we been disappointed .The delicious food, superb staff and simple ambiance combine to make each visit there memorable. So when my husband recently found himself housebound with a broken leg and broken arm, resulting from a bicycle accident, we decided... More

Eight of us met for dinner on a Sunday. We had no problem being seated as it was only 5 pm but there was always a steady amount of people in the restaurant eating while we were there. Chiso means purple mint. Chiso is on the NE corner of Fremont and North 36th. Parking is the only problem, as it... More

I went to Chiso based on a friends recommendation and now I can't shut-up about the place. The sushi was AMAZING, fresh and made right! But, the service pushed them over the top. Super friendly and very helpful with the menu and attentive service! This is my new favorite sushi spot in Seattle!

We were so happy with our food at this restaurant. I had the broiled salmon dinner because I don't eat sushi. This was probably the tastiest piece of salmon I have ever had. I can't really remember what my son and his girlfriend ordered but they both loved their sushi. The said the fish was excellent quality. I would highly... More

This has been my favorite sushi restaurant in Seattle. There are other sushi places which have great fish but chiso has the advantage of also being reasonably priced. I like sashimi, not rolls. This is not the place to go if you like unusual sushi rolls. Chinos is all about the raw fish. They regularly have three different types of... More

Daily happy hour between 4 & 6. Beer & saki plus a large assortment of sushi & non-sushi. One of the best deals in Seattle. High quality food. Love it.

We have been coming here at least ten years. Tonight was probably our last visit. The food was pretty much as we remembered, but the service was awful, worst of any restaurant in recent memory--and we eat out a lot. No check back, empty water glasses, plates left lingering on the table until I asked that they be removed. Sorry... More
