My husband and I have eaten here for several years. We go at least 2-3 times a month for lunch or dinner. Hard to believe I haven't rated it before now. Sushi Tama is a small, clean and authentic Sushi restaurant in Tacoma. The sushi is always fresh and well prepared. We usually order prawn tempura as an appetizer; just... More

A great place for sushi and so much more. If you don't care sushi check out the menu. There are other delicious items to choose from. The rice is superb. The tofu is the best. The service is friendly and fast. It is a calm and a quiet place to eat. You can hear eachother without shouting over the noise.... More

I drove for about 40 minutes to get to this place that a friend recommended...and it was well worth the drive. It's been around for over 20 years, and the owner of this restaurant is from Japan. He stands behind the counter making some of the best sushi that I have had in the United States. The place is small... More

We go to various Japanese restaurants but this is the only place we get tempura. It's light and crisp and never greasy. The sushi and sashimi items were fresh and well presented. Service is friendly. It's a small neighborhood place with lots of regulars.

Overall, the food here is very good, the service is very friendly and prompt. I like the ambiance ... remind me a little of places I've been to in Japan, especially those restaurants found on the top floor of the department stores. The Sushi is just simply good ... no wow factor here, so I'm not overly impressed with their... More

I was hosted here for a business lunch. Good foot traffic, but not overwhelming. Sushi combo plates for lunch were comparatively high - "dinner" priced - compared to other sushi restaurants. Most items on the lunch menu in fact, were a tad high, and especially for the quality/quantity served, as I was about to find out. As the guest my... More

I love to try new places when I'm on business trips and this one tips the scale when it comes to my experiences! This is authentic, fresh and absolutely delicious food, the majority of which is prepared right in front of you. For those like myself who are a little new to sushi, the menu had a detailed explanation of... More

My wife and I try Sushi Tama every once in a while because it is convenient and close to the Univ of Puget Sound where my wife works. Sushi Tama is a small restaurant, but family-owned and operated. The food is authentic Japanese, above average and fairly priced. We like it for when the two of us just want to... More

Unexpected find. Not the best sushi I have ever had I wanted sushi so it was good! The server was quite busy and worked like crazy to keep us satisfied. We had edamame, a sampler and miso to start and 3 rolls - spyder, tempura and dragon - that were very good. Tea was good and hot! The price was... More

Small and friendly. The sushi is very good. The owner is the sushi chef. Hot meals are tasty. My wife and I have eaten here regularly for many years, and never had a bad experience.
