Seattle Weekly's Description

Attractive, lodge-like Kaname's long menu includes all the dishes Americans expect to find in a Japanese restaurant (sushi, sukiyaki, tempura, katsu), as well as the smaller drinking snacks that you'd find at izakayas, or Japanese pubs. That's a lot of dishes to master, and the results are uneven, but one of the reliable successes is Kaname's ramen. Owner Todd Kuniyuki trained with a Japanese chef to learn his Kyushu-style tonkotsu broth, which smells like pureed bacon but is light enough to sip a bowl's worth.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/14/10

    Has an evening happy hour, when its hedonistic Japanese fried food costs around $3. Croquettes and gyozas, beer and shochu (similar to vodka). Aims for those on a budget. Happy hour 5-6:30

  • Seattle Met on 02/18/11

    Scarlet lanterns reading “Izakaya” light up the doorways of Tokyo snack bars, beckoning wary workers with early-evening belts and bites

  • Kenji O. on 05/08/10

    They have a great happy hour, Monday thru Saturday 5pm - 630pm.

  • Michal X. on 10/16/13

    Service is incredibly slow; food took 50 minutes to arrive.

  • Tonnvane W. on 05/04/13

    Happy hour until 6:30
