Seattle Weekly's Description

The Cutting Board offers a non-fussy approach to Japanese cuisine. A walk-up counter to place your order, a self-serve water station, and just five wooden tables make up the dining area. J-Pop plays softly overhead, interrupted every few minutes by clanking pots and cooks yammering to one another in Japanese. It's like a cafeteria, but cozier. The Cutting Board serves the sort of food a mother makes lovingly for her children when they get home from school: yakisoba, udon, and best of all, big bowls of beef curry accompanied by croquettes, tonkatsu (deep-fried pork), and menchi katsu (deep-fried hamburger). Wash down your hearty meal with a Kirin beer, and it's guaranteed you'll have the best nap of your life when you get home.

Tips from foursquare

  • Ashley D. on 05/09/11

    The chirashi here is faaantastic.

  • Serious Eats on 04/07/14

    You order at the counter at this casual restaurant, with the cook bringing the food to your table. Look for some interesting Western-influence dishes (yoshoku), including a top-notch katsu curry.

  • Geoff S. on 03/08/13

    Chirashi bowl is fantastic and especially considering the low price.

  • Brian D. on 09/21/11

    Nagasaki roll #42, lemon zest gives a kick

  • Chewsy on 08/21/11

    Read the review of the 46 Kagoshima roll, drool over the 2 photos and rate it yourself on Chewsy!
