Seattle Weekly's Description

This cheap-ass sushi spot smack-dab in the middle of the Lower Queen Anne hustle/bustle offers a reprieve from the conveyor-belt Sumo battle down the street between Genki and Sushi Land. Obasan is a kid-friendly place, but don't worry hipster Mom-and-Pop, they also serve up a great happy hour. Keep coloring, honey, while Mommy sips her pretty drink and eats her $1 hand roll. Other specials at happy hour -- $1 nigiri offerings, $2-$4 appetizers -- might convince you to order another pretty drink. Lots of rolls fill out the sushi offerings, plus they offer teriyaki and tempura. Put it all together, and you have a monster-sized bento box.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/12/10

    An unassuming little joint. The kind of place you overlook unless you are looking for it. Fresh slices of albacore and yellowfin for $1. Generous size; More fish than rice. Happy hour 4:30-6 pm

  • Isabella L. on 06/12/10

    The Miso soup is a surprise in itself

  • Jill B. on 03/19/11

    May is the sweetest! Best sushi in Seattle.

  • Christopher T. on 01/30/10

    Make sure you have the Obasan Roll. It is named after the restaurant. That should be sign enough that it's tasty.

  • Ben R. on 01/21/10

    The firefly roll is great.
