Mashiko's sushi is all sustainably harvested, and hooray for that! The rolls are creative, the atmosphere's on the upscale side, and owner Hajime has been strictly, lovingly running the place since September of 1994. Mashiko has earned its West-Seattle-and-beyond cult following. You might also enjoy Mashiko's rules
, which include: "#2: Music is chef’s choice," "#4: Prices are subject to change based on customers attitude," "#15: Do not be afraid to try something new," "#17: Chopsticks are not drum sticks," "#18: Soy sauce is not a beverage," "#19: Trust us, we are professionals," #20: Visa and master card and washing dishes are all acceptable methods of payment," and "#21: Because Hajime said so."
