    This is the oldest Japanese restaurant in Seattle; located in what used to be Little Tokyo. I love their cod collar and they have other Japanese dishes as well - more than just sushi and sashimi for sure! The service is kind and quick, but be sure to make reservations ahead of time!

    This is authentic, well prepared and very reasonable Japanese food, from a restuarant that has been in business over 100 years (except when it was ransacked when the owners were sent to internment camps during world war II.)

    It has a comfortable, neighborhood feel, and if you don't look closely for it on the street, you may miss its low key signage and appearance. The insides are comfy, with a lot of clipped articles on the entrance walls and in the dining room there are nice wall lights and a lot of Japanese prints and traditional masks and artifacts. It has 3 tatami rooms for a real traditional feel, and a small 6 chair sushi bar in the rear. A small bar is in the front. The place keeps going with 2 senior nissei women who manage the table seating and bar. There is no take out (I asked). The wait staff is mostly young, attentive Japanese.

    There are a lot of reasonably priced dishes and combinations. I had the Sakana Dinner ($13.95), which included miso soup, tsukemono (pickled cucumbers) rice, dessert and 3 main dishes. The Saba Shioyaki (grilled , salted mackerel; or you can get teriyaki style) was excellent, perfectly grilled to make the skin crisp, but with a juicy tenderness of the tasty meat inside. Tempura, with one shrimp, 1 squid piece and 3 vegetables, were perfectly fried in the thin crispy batter; and sashimi, which included 4 generously sliced pieces of tuna and 2 tender octopus slices came included with the dinner.
    Dessert was slices of honeydew melon. They have a nice selection of Sake and Shouchu to drink, too. This place offers down home food in an authentic style of days gone by without pretense or high prices. (Total bill: $21.01 before tip)

    Maneki has a well known reputation amongst locals for great food and super value, so you have to come early so as not to wait. Try between 5 - 6pm.
