This is a very old Japanese restaurant that serves traditional family style food. I came here with a party of five and we were given one of the tatami rooms. It was cute and while it didn’t give us total privacy, it was a great way to spend a fun evening with friends and students. I ordered the sakana dinner with the salt broiled mackerel, sashimi, and tempura. One of the fillets was good but not outstanding while the other was riddled with bones. I was served albacore, tuna, and yellowtail sashimi. The former wasn’t the freshest, but the latter two were very good. The tempura was some of the best I’ve had because it was crispy, not oily, the shrimp was still tender and sweet, and the vegetables had crunch. There are hits and misses, but the prices are affordable, the atmosphere charming, and worthwhile to come back to.

Great experience! Definitely one of the more authentic, homestyle places to eat Japanese in Seattle. I wasn't blown away or moved to tears by anything I ordered (black cod collar and agadashi taro root), but they were both very good. Good flavors, good textures. Don't add too much soy sauce or ask for hot sauce, it'll mess with the subtle flavors. The prices look, on first glance, too good to be true-- $8 for the black cod collar for example. Beware though, because of the a la cart format (you need to order rice, for example, with your main dish, and portion sizes are more appetizer size than entree size), it's very easy to over-order or spend way more than you'd intended! This is an especially great place to come with people so you can try many different items. Next time will try the sea urchin!

Food is good, but it arrives sporadically (appetizers last? Seriously?) and the ancient woman working the door will claim she "don't have no tables" when the restaurant is clearly empty.

Black Cod Collar is a must. I would say best dish there. The place was a nice place to have a little business meeting but if you outside your comfort zone for some authentic sushi I definitely recommend Maneki. Excellent food.

My girlfriend and I love this restaurant. We try to eat here at least once every other week. The food is to die for!

This is the only restaurant in Seattle I consider worth spending my money at. If you want to eat real Japanese food, you definitely have to come to Maneki.

Americanized Japanese taste or stuck in outdated flavor! My wife and I visited there TWICE with a dream that we could dine authentic Japanese foods in Seattle, but it was just a dream. Beef Teriyaki-too salty,( look like Korean Bulgoki), tenpura-too small, Sukiyaki-too sweet(feel like sugar soup), Nabeyaki Udon-too simple, the worst Nabeyaki Udon in my life. Shabu-shabu-Just horrible, better going to Szechuan bistro. Maybe I shoud choose Sushis or Boiled fishes than these menu or just socialize friends with drinking in Tatami room. However, I could say that this restaurant ads are definitely exaggerated over all comparing their history.

Yummylicious! This is my 3rd time here and also my most favorite visit as it seems we ordered all the right things. We had 4 ppl in our group and ordered: -2 sakana dinners, 1 with salmon teriyaki, 1 with salted mackerel. This is always a good deal b/c it also comes with miso soup, cucumber/shrimp salad, tempura, sashimi and rice. The salmon teriyaki was huge and very tender with good flavor. The mackerel had great flavor but was kinda skimpy on size compared to the salmon. The tempura is so light - just so delightful! -Chirashi Bowl - in my opinion, it's kind of a small portion size and I'd rather just get another sakana dinner, but the sashimi is really good, fresh and you get a good variety. Comes with miso soup too. The sushi rice is just perfect. -Ika Garlic Bata-Yaki - The flavor was really good, but the squid was slightly overcooked, so a bit rubbery. -Miso cod collar - I loved this one. It was soft and buttery, yum. I highly recommend it and the portion is large for the price! -Sassy Salmon Roll and Yellowtail roll - Simple, not fancy, but very fresh fish and a great price. All this food and it only came to about $80. We were stuffed afterwards. Oh yes, and the service there is wonderful. Everyone is extremely friendly. I can't wait for my next trip back to Maneki. Although this time it wasn't that busy, I still highly recommend making reservations as the last couple of times I was there, it was extremely busy.
