Great sushi does exist in Tacoma, and Gari of Sushi is the place to find it! Located in the Lincoln District, this sushi restaurant features beautiful and delicious food, a varied menu, and a low-key atmosphere. With the same sushi chef every day, the quality of the sushi at Gari’s is consistent and amazing.
Gari of Sushi offers a wide variety of Japanese dishes, including traditional sushi, sushi rolls, sashimi, bento boxes, and more. Their menu—lengthy but very much worth wading through—features images of every dish so you know just what you’re getting into.
Regulars rave about… well, pretty much everything, but particularly their nigiri and lunch bento box specials. Before you dig in, make sure to enjoy the presentation of your food; people often remark that they’re hesitant to eat such a work of art.
TIP: Don’t judge a book by its cover! People often remark that upon arriving, they’re not always sure they’re in the right place—but don’t be fooled. The inside of the restaurant is indeed beautiful, and the food is delicious!
