Sushi Taro: what do users think?


Elena: Had a wonderful dinner here celebrating my husband's birthday - we opted for the full experience and enjoyed a variety of tasty dishes, from raw fish/sushi, to cooked. There was ample food, to be sure! Servers were wonderful and helpful, even our kids had a lovely time and found plenty of dishes to enjoy.

Julia Schwartz: Sushi Taro was an absolutely lovely experience. I went with my brother who lives about 5 mins away while I was in town visiting. The service was impeccable and the food was fantastic. It was right after the snow storm and I was happy to see how many other people were still getting out and dining. My brother and I split everything and it was to die for. I know this is kind of random, but one of my highlights of the meal was the spicy mustard they served with the duck. I seriously could drink that mustard. I can’t wait for my next visit!

Michael B: This place is a very traditional Japanese sushi restaurant. The dishes are beautiful, the hospitality and service is too notch! I went here for my birthday and it was incredible! I loved the little green tea pudding they gave as a gift, it was the perfect treat to end the meal!

Daphnemels Melodia: Highly recommend. I had an amazing experience at Sushi Taro. Booked a reservation for our wedding anniversary and the restaurant made it really memorable for us. Our orders were: Sushi tokujo, Tai Zohsui and a raw octopus tentacle dish. Service: Excellent. Tara was our server and she’s attentive to our enquiries. She also patiently explained the names of the dishes to us (we showed her google photos). They were quite flexible with my request for no tamago, include uni and roe sushi. Dishes: Excellent. The sashimi slices on the sushi and octopus tentacles was fresh. The porridge had this umami flavour, simply delightful. Each dish was also plated in a pleasing manner. Price: $$$$ as what google dictates. But it’s worth it. Experience: Excellent. The restaurant surprised us with a matcha dessert at the end of our meal to celebrate our anniversary. The mochi was soft and chewy, the brown syrup paired well with the ice-cream and jelly cubes. I really appreciated the kind gesture and extra mile that Sushi Taro went for us. Thank you (:

Miguel Curiel: Some of the best sushi I’ve ever had. Don’t be fooled by the small and shady entrance: the place is spacious and nicely themed. Also, it is located on 17th street food corridor which is youthful and picturesque. Lastly, everything we ordered was absolutely delicious which explains its Michelin level ratings!

Hannah: Wow!! When we first walked in I was a little surprised that this place was a Michelin star. We came during restaurant week (menu attached) and every single dish was absolutely amazing! The freshest & most delectable fish my tastebuds have ever experienced, they were literally dancing. Decor was simple but elegant, was a nice environment and good service. This restaurant is definitely deserving of their star & highly recommend !

Heather Leiss: Delicious kaiseki menu. Some of the best sushi we've had. Also a filling amount of sushi on this tasting menu. Can't wait to try the omakase table next time!

Wendy Gao: For a Michelin star restaurant, this was a disappointing experience. The website isn't very useful. I tried to make a reservation for omakase 30 days in advance (as stated on the site), which I had to do through EMAIL instead of a reservation site, only to be told that all the slots are booked. So I guess if you'd like to have omakase, make sure to do it well in advance of 30 days. Instead, I settled for a table reservation. The restaurant is located in a not very easy to access location from the subway, so I recommend ubering from the subway - it's a long walk! The service was not that great and not very prompt. There was not much interaction with the wait staff, they just placed the food and left. We ordered a la carte (the servers gave no recommendations or guidance). The food was good but not mind blowing great. Overall, there was no wow experience or feeling that I was being taken care of during my dinner. It was more of any other fancy date night restaurant that you might go to than an actual Michelin star place, which was pretty disappointing. I recommend if you're looking for a place with good service and experience to go to Sushi Nakazawa instead.

Salman Haji: Delicious food with lots of variety! The menu is intimidating for someone who has even a basic understanding of Japanese food, but our waitress was super kind and patient in explaining everything to us. Definitely loved the dessert and tea options too.

Love EJ: Here for anniversary dinner but no one asked for dinning purpose today. Nothing special or photo taking moment happens today like other fine dining restaurants. Kaiseki was 120 per person. We added some other food as well. All the food was good but service was not that attentive. If you want to be American style wow moment, you would probably be disappointed. Food is really good from appetizers to desserts. Sushi fish today was somewhat not that fresh. Lagging time between dish to dish was pretty long. I would do la carte only next time.

Rakuya: what do users think?


Danny Chong: Food here was delicious. There were a lot of actual Japanese people here. Not that that means anything itself but always a good sign. The lunch sets were great - the cod and eel was yummy. I do wish the protein portion was slightly bigger.

Julie: Big menu. Great happy hour. Nice interior and ambiance in general. Favorites include the mussels, age dashi, kara age, salmon apple crudo, white tiger roll, sake don buri... never really miss here. REALLY must try some of the ramen, nearly mugged the guy next to me for a taste of his...

Traveling Clown: Prompt service. The food was very good and the cocktails delicious! Had the Nigri sampler. Highly recommend if interested in trying different fish.

M. M.: If you know Japanese food then this place is not recommended. The tempura was served cold and the batter was thick. The miso soup tasted like instant soup. The salmon was ok but overall this place is not worth recommending. I'm sure there are better Japanese restaurants in the area.

Ben C: My go to sushi place in the area. I’d recommended taking advantage of their happy hour menu from 4-6 to get good value on their appetizers and sushi rolls. I really enjoy the grilled salmon harasu roll as well as the takoyaki and steamed shumai.

Fei stetzwa: Delicious sushi. Hide your white shirt if you order the curry noodle soup. Scrumptious cocktails, outdoor seating in Dupont Circle what more could you ask for.

Hudson Harris: As an outsider to DC, the modern industrial, atmosphere of Rakuya instantly drew me in. The menu was extensive yet easy to choose from for those who don’t often dine in Japanese restaurants. The sushi rolls were PHENOMENAL, and of course you can never go wrong with any of their Ramen bowls. I was very excited to see Japanese beers on the menu as well. Cheers!

Scott Matus: One of the best spots for sushi and Japanese fare in the city. Always fresh, high quality ingredients, all at reasonable prices for what you’re getting. Brunch menu is awesome and a has particularly good deals for bento boxes that will absolutely leave you feeling full. Plenty of outdoor heated seating.

S. K. Hill: Rakuya saved the night! We went to a very horribly ran Asian Night Market event in downtown DC. We left and decided to go to Rakuya near Dupont Circle. JACKPOT! Best decision we could have made. The extremely polite and friendly staff served us well. Their “Mocktail” Strawberry Lemonade was absolutely good. The Calamari with the Cucumber Sauce dip was outstanding. The Karaage Chicken rocked! I am not a vegan, but I loved the Vegetable Tempura. Finally the Shoyu Ramen was DELISH! Every piece of food I ate at Rakuya was extremely tasty and well prepared. It is safe to say that I will be patronizing Rayuka often. Well done!

Lauren Thai: one of the best Japanese places we've been to in DC! The udon was the perfect consistency and everything was well cooked. we will definitely come back again! super happy with our meal. service was also friendly and tried to be attentive even though the place was packed.

Sushi AOI: what do users think?


Annie Sri: The location is fantastic at the city center.The food was delicious. The sushi is a perfect dish. My favorite was roll combo special. The staff is very friendly and gives some good recommendations. If you are in the area. I would recommend this place.

Arnold Flores: Sushi was delicious. Chicken teriyaki same as anywhere else. Enjoyed the rolls very much washed down with Saporo Beer. The meal was enjoyed by myself and 2 European friends. The day turned interesting because my friends decided to pay for lunch. We finished a nice meal and used the nature break room. My friend walked out first. The waitress asked my friend if service was good. He said "very good." She asked the question many times and he answered many times "good!" He was annoyed after the umpteenth time. I heard the entire conversation walking out. The waitress then asked me "was the service good?" I agreed and said yes. She asked me the same question again and again. I asked her "what is problem because you keep repeating yourself?" She showed me the bill. My friend left a $4 dollar tip on $100 lunch bill. I offered to pay the 15% and she refused. I explained to her that Europeans do not pay tips and this is their first experience in USA at Washington DC. She did not understand and seemed annoyed. I left her extra cash. Would have left more, but was annoyed by passive aggressive questioning. The repeated questions were like being interrogated under lights in smokey room. Communication is important. Waitresses were annoying passive aggressive. They did a superb job on service. Overall good experience sitting outdoors dinning with great sushi. Loved it.
Response: Hi Arnold! Thank you so much for your 5 star review and a very detailed script of your experience dining in with us today! I’d like to first apologize for any passive aggressiveness your party received or might have felt. That would be the last thing we would ever want you to feel! We do understand European culture and are very adamant about our customers having the right to choose how ever much they want to tip even if that means nothing at all. We just wanted to make sure you received the best service that you deserve! I will use this as a learning experience and make sure nothing like this every happens again! Thank you again for choosing to dine in with us. We look forward to seeing you again! Sushi aoi

Julian Fishov: Ordered take away. Order was ready 5 min before promised. Very friendly staff, opened the door for me, greeted me and grabbed my order right away. Miso soup was good. Sushi was delicious, the only place I know in dc that has real caviar sushi. Excellent sashimi Fish was fresh and the flavors were really good. Prices are on the higher side comparing to other sushi in town.

Enrique Dentone: I absolutely love the food here. Spain (our server) was amazing and really added to the dining experience. We got the sashimi dinner and the 3 roll combo and it was all delicious. I highly recommend eating here!
Response: Thank you so much for your review! We look forward to seeing you again!

Kitty L: Had a salmon (sake) don and a scallop nigiri. Salmon was of good quality and so was the scallop. Its a shame that the rice was soggy and not of good quality. Not sure if it's a thing in Washington DC or maybe I was unlucky. I ordered a takeaway from another local sushi place and the rice was also too soft.

Traveling Foodie: Great sashimi here. Outside seating is really nice and the staff is efficient and attentive. Food-Get the sashimi. The miso soup taste exactly like what you think. The sushi rolls are about the same as well. But the sashimi is thick and yummy.

Kim Nguyen: Came here for a quick lunch before leaving DC. The service was exceptional. We were able to get seated quickly. The food quality was good as well.
Response: Hi Kim, We really appreciate your positive review and photos. Looking forward to serving you again!

Alisa Viwatdechakul: The sushi was very good, great plate presentation. The fish is also fresh and the sushi roll specials are very good. the location is close to the city center and walking distance from chinatown. the best part was the service!!super friendly staff! will come back again if i find myself in the area!!
Response: Alisa! Thank you for your 5 star review! We look forward to seeing you next time!

Karen Lickteig: Came here for lunch on a Tuesday with a group of 4. They were pretty busy and service was attentive, but quite slow. Took a while for our order to come out, so don’t come here if you’re looking for something quick. Sushi was quite good, but I’d say portions were on the smaller side for the price.

c Harvy: It was cold and rainy, this little Japanese style restaurant warms you right up with there house hot saka, and katsu curry along with hot miso soup or roman bowls. The store is very busy with constant shuffle of poeple in and out. A little pricy for comfort food standards.

Nama Sushi Bar & Restaurant: what do users think?


Rachel L: Wow. We received a recommendation from a friend to try this place out and I’m so glad we did. The sushi was so amazing and so fresh. we got several rolls and ate every single piece!! The service was awesome and the ambience was great. The drinks were also very delicious. I can’t wait to go back!

Manae Young: Do not come here if you want to eat good sushi. It is over priced, fish was not fresh and portions were so small. We got the spicy salmon roll and if you look at the picture, you can see it’s mostly rice and avocado… Rice was hard, flavors were plain and boring, sushi’s were tiny. It was the worst restaurant experience I’ve had in a while :(

Sam OB: Very tiny and cozy place but one of the sushi place. Miso soup was good and the rolls are very fresh and delicious. Definitely will come back.

JC: Definitely one of the best sushi I have ever had. Chef Wei has the best Signatures

Joe Yerardi: My friends and I came here for happy hour on a Friday and ordered exclusively off the happy hour menu. I had the eel & cucumber roll, the spicy tuna & avocado roll and the crispy shrimp tempura & avocado roll. My friends also got the vegan BBQ roll and the tuna avocado roll. All in all, we liked our meal. The rolls were good, if not great, and the price (at least for happy hour) was right. The service was solid. I'd certainly come again for happy hour though it wouldn't be my first choice for a non-happy hour sushi dinner.

Michael Brown: We stopped in right before they closed. They were cool about it and gave great service. The miso soup is better than most if not all places in DC. I think the rolls are a bit pricey, but I’ve never had a bad one here. They also have a good happy hour for food every day.
Response: Hi Michael. Thank you so much for your kind words. It is our honor to treat every guest with hospitality and care no matter what time they arrive. We hope to see you again soon. - The NAMA Family

Jared Rovira: Have never left a 1 start review before but, it’s 8-10$ rolls and nigiri for for 20+ dollars. Find a better value at nearly every other sushi place in DC. Atmosphere is cool but not worth the premium. Did not have sashimi but saw a piece that also looked hilariously small for the price. Cut of tuna (bluefin) was delicious everything else in nigiri plate was meh and one of the nigiri pieces from the 35$ chef’s selection was tamago. Cmon. F tier because of quality/price ratio. 5 star reviews have to be fake or never had actual sushi before.

Carlos Holden-Villars: Old hard cold rice, gray and squishy shrimp tempura that appeared to be 7 days old. The fish was not tender; taste of sea lacking. Overall, a pathetic dining experience. Would expect better from a place that charges $20 for special maki — ridiculous.
Response: Hi Carlos. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your experience. We take pride in the freshness and high quality of our food. We would never serve hard rice or week-old shrimp at Nama. Is it possible you reviewed the wrong restaurant? We would appreciate it if you could email us at namadc@schlowrg.com to talk about this further. Thank you, Sherry (Manager)

Jeff Bredt: A prime example of first impressions. As soon as we walked in, I could see that the floor was unswept and hadn't been cleaned...in a while. It takes some time for that sort of grime to build up. It didn't get any better when we were sat next to the window, where we could admire dead flies on the inside window sill. When we lifted our water glasses, they stuck to the table and required a jerk to pick them up. Not a good start. Although we were the only table in at the start of the night, our server seemed distracted and rushed every word out of their mouth. Regarding the food, the 'Namaste' roll and the Hamachi small plate were notable. The rest (Chef's Selection, crispy shrimp roll, over-dressed Crab and Cucumber salad) were middle of the road- meaning that none of them really "popped," and at that price point, one does expect the flavors to the there. For the price, there are much better options in DC for sushi, sashimi and rolls.

Brian Redder: I received so little food. If it wasn't take out I would have sent it back. My nagiri was so thin is was barely a bite. Not worth it at all. I ordered over $30 worth of food and all of it came in one tiny take out container. Wish I could return to get money back because I feel so ripped off.

KAZ Sushi Bistro: what do users think?


S.K. Tan: My chicken bento box was really good. The sushi rolls was more like 4/5 stars for me (it could be just that little bit fresher IMO even though there’s nothing wrong with the quality). The service was excellent. If it was just $5 - 7 less per pax for the meal, the value would have been excellent. I am rating it 5 stars even though 4.5 stars is what I would have rated.

원오직나만: Good sushi, true to traditional style. Grilled octopus was also excellentHad to order uni separately because it was not included in any set menu

Jeremy Ferre: The service here was absolutely perfect. They were all so kind and even put a candle on the dessert for my friend's birthday. And the food is delicious!! Lots of options, including vegetarian rolls. We enjoyed our visit here.

Bibiana Oe: The restaurant was super accommodating in moving reservations when I called that same day. Ordered the special clam miso soup, seaweed salad (could be shared between 2 people), sashimi moriawase, and a spicy tuna roll. The host was aware it was my brother’s birthday and even sent over a beautiful, complimentary green tiramisu sponge! A delicious, super satisfying meal with a beautiful ambiance that would be great for dining in! All waiters were in masks and tables were distanced enough from each other. Highly recommend!

Jeff O: Great quality, recommend the KAZ Tasting 0011 & just keep the experience going until you're done. Service is pretty slow, at least when we were there but we got what we came for in the end.

X Z: tried out every interesting thing on the menu! Haven't splurged in a long time so it's definitely worth it... also love that cherry blossom colored sake set, it's just wonderful

Tamekia Buckner: Amazing Sushi and Sake, servers were gracious and helpful with our selections, everything we had was amazing, vegetarian options available for my hubby !

Jon B: The place had excellent sushi. Very authentic and disciplined to Japanese standards. While we understand how tough it is with labor, our wait staff member was a still a little green and could have been a little more attentive. She was very nice and cordial but it took her about 12 minutes to greet us and ask us for drinks or waters. I think she missed a few things on the order too. The sushi was amazing however. The kanpachi was insane. The seared scallop melted in our mouths. The salmon with the lemon zest was incredible. I could have ordered another two rounds of their sushi at the sitting!

zbigniew grzegorczyk: Grilled baby octopus was very good and from there it was downhill. Crispy Salmon roll had large chunks of a hard very hard /orange reddish veggie that overwhelmed both the texture and taste of the salmon in the roll. The only flavor to the grilled scallop nigiri was the sea salt. Good service. Interior atmosphere bland and uninteresting. First sushi restaurant we tried in a visit to DC. Underwhelmed. (And pricey!)

Gabrielle Nico Reyes: One of the best sushi bars in DC. Amazing and well crafted nigiri.

Sakana Japanese Restaurant: what do users think?


Linden Yee: The sushi is always really fresh and tasty, and the bill is always reasonable. I really like the bento boxes. The salmon roll sometimes comes raw and sometimes comes cooked which is confusing but both are good. Good for carryout or a casual sit-down dinner.

Neil Anstey: The cutest hole in the wall joint. Loved everything we got (sushi) and the service was very good. Places like this make DC special to visit.

Simon Atapan: Just amazing! If you have been to Japan and you eat sushi, do not skip SUSHI (rice&fish) here! The Japanese chef/owner knows how to make the perfect sushi rice here which is so hard to find nowadays (most Japanese restaurants here owned by other Asians). For those who says the food here is bad, I suggest you travel to Japan and find out what the REAL LEGIT sushi supposed to taste like, HERE!

Cadye Murphy: No frills high-quality sushi! We eat here at least one time (sometimes more than once) each time we visit DC!

Hanna Ozbeki: got the spicy tuna, sakana dc, yellowtail roll, and green caterpillar rolls - all were great ! would definitely come back for quick and cheap sushi!

Sam Y.: It’s a nice little spot with decent food, but nothing impressive (so far).

Arman Barbuco: The food are just ok. My friend complain that his soup taste just water. Mine was fine. Nothing special with my Katsu Don. This place was our second option because the first one was full. The service takes awhile maybe because they don’t have enough staff. Anyway, we tried and I don’t think we will return.

Gia lam: Ordered the sashimi entree. Tiniest pieces of fish ever. They gave me only 1 slice of salmon and the worst is they put imitation crab meat. I understand they charge $18.95 for the entree but this was offensively ripping off the customer, esp when the fish was not that fresh or thick.

M planetmike: Neighborhood gem. There is more to be said for a consistently good restaurant at a reasonable price. This is actually rare for a sushi restaurant. I come here for the sashimi but there are hot dishes as well. From outside, one can easily walk by this relatively small space. Inside, the long and narrow restaurant gives it a cozy feeling even without booths or partitions.

Julia Gao: The waitstaff was really nice!! We had a party of 11 that grew into 13, but they were very accommodating about it. Two of us showed up more than half an hour after the rest, but they didn't mind and brought all our food out together (I think). The waitress made sure to refill our waters and was v nice and willing to split our check person by person even though we had so many people. She was great :-) the food was also tasty & v affordable, especially for a place in DuPont

Yosaku Japanese Restaurant: what do users think?


Lani: I was hoping to find a gem but unfortunately this was not it. The miso had no flavor and the sushi just tasted stale. I have no clue what was on the roll either.

Jonathan: Everything we ordered was delicious (but a little rice heavy) and came out quick. Based on how busy they got, extra waitstaff would be beneficial.

Lauren E. Dunlap-Videla: Great service, the waitress was very accomodating and very nice. The fastest we ever had Sushi deliver to the table. Food was awesome!!! The environment was intimate and quiet. They have Happy Hour Sushi everyday from 5-7:30, too bad we got there late, but it was worth it. Whenever we come back to Washington DC, we're definitely coming back. Highly recommend it.

Kelly Primrose: This is the real deal if you're looking for really authentic Japanese food! There are some dishes here that you wont easily find at your average Japanese restaurant, like sukiyaki or unagi. Definitely worth it to come here!
Response: Thank you for great review and 5 stars

Mio Nonaka: Reasonable Japanese lunch at $9-12. On Mondays you'll get happy hour price all day, sushi (nigiri) $1 each. Sushi is a bit dry but ok. Shimesaba sushi (mackerel seasoned in vinegar) is my favorite. Nabeyaki udon was great! One of the pitfalls was the bathroom. It was clean but the whole area near bathroom was stinky. Another was that they had hot tea but served us cold water without asking.
Response: Thank you

Joseph Schachner: Delicious food and attentive service. Outdoor seating! What more could I possibly ask for?

Noam Kagan: I really hate to be a hater of a restaurant that has been in buisness for so long, but honestly, this meal sucked. Well, there goes my 80 dollars. The appetizers were “fine”. Just “fine”. The salad looked as if it was only there to show looks, it tasted old. However, I will give them this, the dumplings were pretty good. Tip: the kitchen closes at 9, the restaurant itself closes at 9:30. Now, back to the food. The sushi came, and every single roll was quite bad. The crunchies in my tuna, and salmon roll were stale, and tasted frankly like wood. My brother, with his crab roll, had to literally remove the crab from the roll, it was, yes, that bad. This continued on for every single roll. The stalking owner proceeded to stare at us for almost every single second of our meal. Every. Second. We then took a trip to the restrooms, which included two doors: The front, which you lock, and then an oddly placed second door, as if you needed it. Well, we definitely got privacy in the restroom at least! Just DONT go here, please. We went here because of the positive reviews, but PLEASE, just don’t risk it with this place.

MadFranMan R: Yosaku. is one of the, if not the best sushi restaurant in the metro area. I travel from Wheaton / Silver Spring and I always think the trip is worth while. The tuna cuts are fresh and tender. The tempura, light an flakey. We've never been disappointed with a meal. The staff is friendly and accomodating.
Response: Thank you for five star rating.

Anna Ma: My favorite sushi spot (pre-COVID). As a student at AU, this was walking distance from the Wawa bus stop so I used to go every weekend to catch the 5-7pm deal. They were always so kind and started to remember me and my order really fast. Always clean, always speedy, and the sushi was delicious (the price definitely makes everything taste better too). It's hard to get affordable sushi in DC, but this place is IT. Hope I get to come back soon :))))))

Nancy Cosner: Very very good. Sushi fresh and tasty. Ramen one of the best around. Staff kind and cordial. Would recommend
Response: Thank you for Five-star rating.

Kotobuki: what do users think?


Mike H: Nice little authentic Japanese eatery. Chirashi and Unagidon were both excellent. Kamameshi is their real specialty, and it comes with sashimi and 3 side dishes. I do not recommend Chicken Kamameshi, though, unless you are OK with ground instead of diced chicken. Their sushi is also quite good in ingredients but a bit lacking in craftsmanship.

H D: Best sushi happy hour in DC and some of the best period. The best eel I’ve had, and definitely try the spicy white tuna roll. Amazing hidden gem.

Cameron Palmer: Hidden little gem of a place that's actually been around forever. Friendly fast service, but more importantly, fresh, delicious, neatly prepared sushi. This place is all quality and no flash. If you've ever been to a slick DC resteraunt and wondered if you are paying more for the marketing and hip decorations than for the food, this is your spot.

T C: The price has gone up a bit but still a great sushi restaurant, always fresh and good quality fish. Love that they don't pack a huge piece of rice for the sushi and it shouldn't because you are supposed to eat the sushi in one bite. The restaurant also server rice in a pot (Kamameshi Set) which I also recommend.

HK: A small cozy authentic local place. Absolutely love their eel Kamameshi!

Mike Ragusa: Amazing food, great service. Walked in on a whim and found a new favorite. If you are in the area, it is a must stop by

David Moore: I love this place and I'm so happy they pulled through the pandemic. The cozy dining area always makes the meal feel relaxed and intimate and the sushi is some of the best in the city. They have a pretty standard assortment of rolls and nigiri and will also make temaki upon request (the menu also has a few other things, dumplings, noodles, grilled meats, etc, but honestly, the sushi's so good I've never ordered anything else) Such a great spot, definitely have plans to visit a few more times this summer.

kjhlkjh kljhlkjh: An absolutely amazing gem of a restaurant. If you want quality japanese cuisine in a cozy environment -- hit this place up. You will not be disappointed.

Alexander Tieger: Great local spot, worth the drive where ever you are. Whole restaurant seats around 20 people. Simple priced fair and delicious sushi

Mike O'Neill: My wife and I always get the chirashi sushi whenever we try out a new-to-us sushi restaurant and the one we had here was one of the best in the DMV that we've tried. Very nice service and the food was ready promptly on time. We'll be back!

Nooshi: what do users think?


Bobbi DeAnda: YUM! This place has an extensive menu and food was tasty! The wontons are THICK - they don’t skimp on the stuffing! The chicken dish had a kick and was tasty, according to my partner. The sushi was good - I wasn’t impressed with the avocado roll but the fried dragon roll was AMAZING! They accidentally brought the Godzilla roll so I tasted that one, not as amazing as the fried dragon roll in my opinion. Overall good pick - tasty and good service.

Jessica Martin: Had Singapore rice noodles, which were tasty and flavorful. Not too oily. A little more expensive than I expected, so might want to try and get in on their happy hours. They have some awareness of ‘gluten free’ dining (roast pork is not gluten free) but I wish they were more overt in their menu about what is or isn’t gluten conscious.

Kimberly Henderson: Food and happy hour was excellent. Great prices for happy hour and you taste your alcohol. Customer service was great. Definitely will he back. The music selection in the bathroom is bomb 🤣

byron subero: Soooo this what happens when you keep liking my post......I might just pop up. I've been craving short ribs since........ the pandemic. Found this place that has it and it did not disappoint. Bogogi buns was amazing, the sushi made me want to order more. Now the drinks was strong and tasty.

Beth: Nice cool place on a really hot day. The Pad See Ew was delicious!! (The waitress didn’t seem that happy to be waiting on me though).

Sarah J. Littleton: We travel to DC a few times a year and have never stumbled upon a better sushi place, we’re almost sad we didn’t find Nooshi sooner. We had dinner here two nights in a row and while I can’t speak for much other than the sushi, cocktails and appetizers food wise everything was excellent! The service was incredibly fast and they were absolutely on top of making sure we didn’t run out of water as well as checking in just to make sure everything was good. Prices were totally reasonable and the decor inside was pleasant and suited the space very well. If you’re trying to decide to try Nooshi or not you won’t be disappointed.

Renee 110: The food was delicious. The drink was good and strong. The service was great. I will definitely be returning

BUSY BEE TEE Davis: Love this place great drinks and food excellent service too the staff is so friendly, patient and give great recommendations. Always willing to assist a customer. Ask for vaccine card , I felt very safe and comfortable BUSY 🐝☕

MJ M: Very good sushi. Got two rolls (both spicy crunchy as I'm a fan of tempura bits in my rolls) and they were of good size and taste. Also, I highly recommend the steamed bulgogi buns. They were delicious as well.

aimar9992000: Overpriced, cold and bad food. This is why is probably empty. Can find better and cheaper food in chinatown

Sushi Hachi: what do users think?


Philippe Jacques Kradolfer: Sushi Hachi is a small quaint restaurant! It is nicely setup with good food and great service. A nice touch to get started were the compressed towels that rapidly expand when adding water. There is a small tray with the compressed towel and water...cute detail to wipe your hands as you sit down at the table. The sushi is good but not great. The price is on the higher side considering the quality. Nice atmosphere and great service making the whole experience a good one.

TexCat: One of the BEST sushi restaurants I’ve ever been to. Everything was great - from the restaurant decor, ambiance and vibe to the food and drinks. Friendly attentive staff. LOVED the ‘Dreams Come True’ cocktail. Ordered a selection of nigiri, sashimi and the hachi roll. Everything was delicious. We were able to relax and take our time. HIGHLY recommend

Brian Glover: The food was excellent. The experience was meh. You have to scan a barcode, then order and pay online. Ordering sushi on my phone was awkward. Since the whole table places their order on a single device, they have no idea who is supposed to get which item, so plates are mixed up. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. They also brought everything out way too fast. Before we knew it we had soup bowls, an appetizer plate, and the main plates cluttering the table. Let me finish my delicious miso soup, man.

Lorena Be: The Sushi was absolutely delicious! Well, I love the setup of this wonderful restaurant. They had cute Halloween decorations up and also other Little touches such as compressed pellets that expand rapidly when wet to wipe your hands prior to eating making the experience more enjoyable. Ordered the Chef's Sushi Platter which includes miso soup, Edamame, snapper ceviche, 3 piece nigiri sushi, 4 piece yellowtail cilantro roll. Also ordered Alaska Roll 8pcs which consist of Salmon/shrimp tempura/avocado/eel sauce. In addition, ordered a 5 piece Prime beef on an Ishiyaki grilling hot stone which is a fun way to enjoy your food. The sushi was absolutely succulent and by far the best I’ve had in Washington DC. Video on location is up on below social media. IG: FoodieFortLauderdale TIKTOK: FoodieFortLauderdale YOUTUBE: FoodieFortLauderdale

John Dabbs: Pretty good. Scallops were nice. Prime beef wasn’t bad and uni was just alright. Service was average. The wet towels are a nice touch and tuna was good

Parker Kelley: Very great experience here! There was a little bit of a wait when we first arrived but we were seated in a timely manner. I was a little confused with the ordering process at first but then it was very easy as we ordered from our phones! I had the Hachi roll & Volcano roll (highly recommend)! I’ll definitely be back!

brianlidawg: Excellent quality fish, great service, and all at a reasonable price. Excellent ambiance for a dinner with friends or if you feel like having sushi in general. Get the sliced steak to cook over the hot stone its super cool to do! 10/10 would recommend!

Ana Gallardo: The sushi here was delicious! My mom & I just wanted a light lunch & we left there so satisfied. I enjoyed the atmosphere & staff. Great spot.

Natalia Lucio: Awesome place! The food was simply delicious, you can tell the ingredients have excellent quality. The service was very good, Zac was super caring. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday and they even gave him complementary dessert with a birthday candle in it, so thoughtful! We will definitely come back for other occasions. The price is fair, and the ambient is very cute. I recommend ordering the scallop sashimi!

Joey Minervini: Really just average food. Tempura was sufficient, but lacked a little salt and sweetness in the sauce. Sushi rolls were skimpy with the rice and small. Ngiri was really thinly sliced. The busboy came to remove dishes *the instant* a plate was empty - really annoying. Come for dinner - it will be ok. But just ok.

Tono Sushi Restaurant: what do users think?


Jessa L: Absolutely fantastic happy hour (shhhhh don't tell!) $4-5 boozy drinks and $2 per 2 pieces of nigiri! That fish tastes fresh and sizes were decent. Excellent customer service even tho they were busy. Highly recommend

Rakhshanda Khan: The food was amazing, we loved the Sushi, soup, Ramen, and Noodles dishes. Would love to visit again. Wholesome food.

K R: Been coming to Tono for a few years now, usually for the Happy Hour Sushi. The price has gone up from $1 to $2 for certain items, but is still quality. The restaurant, at one point, did have two floors, but since reopening after COVID generally just see the downstairs open. Very friendly staff and large selection of sushi, noodles, appetizers or main entrees. Great little spot about a half block from the Woodley Park Metro.

Aly Galik: Our sushi was fresh and delicious. Staff was super friendly. Went for the $1 nigiri on happy hour which is a great deal so I’ll definitely be back!

Rosie HK: I’ve been ordering and going to this place for years. It is my favorite sushi in the city! M was our waitress for this particular occasion and she is the sweetest person ever! My favorite rolls are the Alaskan, Mexican and Bagel. And the gyoza is always delicious too. I got ramen for the first time and it was a nice hearty portion bursting with good flavors. I can’t recommend this place enough!

Alejandra Zegarra Blanco: Great sushi place. My waiter was very nice and friendly, it made our experience enjoyable. I will definitely come back to this restaurant.

Collin Inglut: Sushi was just alright, nothing special. Wasn't as fresh as I thought it would have been for the price. Ordered the Super-Jo sushi (chef selection). Should have ordered the normal Jo-sushi. Soy sauce was very salty. Best part of the meal was the miso soup. Waited over 90 minutes for my order when I was told 50 minutes! Will not be going back!

Caroline Miller: The sushi is very so so (a bit below grocery-store sushi) but the location and service are nice.

Arthur Upchurch: I love good sushi restaurants and this one is okay. I sat at one of the dining tables instead of the sushi bar which was full. I can tell that the owners are in tune with the seasons as evident with their December roll. It's a neighborhood establishment and the staff provided a comfortable dining experience. If I lived in Woodley Park, I would visit at least 2 to 3 times a month.

Ryan Rotundo: Tono Suhsi provides a great experience for those looking to have sushi, noodles, or other Japanese cuisine in the District. The service was fast and friendly, and the food came out in a reasonable time and tasted amazing. Would definitely recommend.

Kerionne Ussin: Spent Valentine's Day evening here for dinner and it was an excellent decision. The atmosphere was lovely, the decor was very cute, the service was great, and the food was impeccable. Will definitely be back soon!

Pras Ra: Great value for money. Pretty prompt service on a Sunday. Not too busy. Really loved the tuna crunchy avocado cucumber salad (ask for a fork) and the $5 happy hour drinks. Chicken satay starter was ok. Coconut milk chicken soup was delicious and flavorful but the chicken it contained felt like a bit of an afterthought a bland chunks thrown in there. The sushi we had (an unagi roll and Mexican spicy tuna roll) was great. Tofu panang curry also good. Our Sunday lunch for two comprised large chicken coconut soup, the tuna avocado appetizer, chicken satay appetizer, unagi sushi and spicy tuna sushi (6 pieces each), a tofu panang curry with rice which we shared, two HH cocktails, a mochi cream dessert and a fried banana dessert which came to about $75 plus tip. I have to give these guys a shout out for offering reusable chopsticks. They are hard to work with but not as hard as a world without trees! If you need something with more grip, request a fork - judgment free.
Response: Thank you for a great review

Khoi Nguyen: This review is based solely on their happy hour. I stopped by the other day with some friends and we ordered their $1 nigiri and a couple of apps. Everything was delicious, fresh and came out really quickly. Highly recommend this spot if you're looking for HH or Asian fusion in general

Rachel L: My friend and I figured we would give this place a shot as we were craving sushi. I was pleasantly surprised when I reviewed the pricing for the rolls! The sushi was decent overall. Our food came out pretty quickly and our servers were very attentive. I would go back exclusively for the great pricing. Not the best sushi I’ve ever had but not bad at all!
Response: Thank you

Ben G: Excellent sushi and sashimi! The place is located on U street and very accessible. The service was excellent and attentive to our needs. We ordered appetizers and I had the $12 lunch special which included Sushi as well as Sashimi. The fish quality was excellent and so was the sushi. Overall we had a great experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area.
Response: Thanks

Tamika Mars: Good ramen. The noodles and broth was great. The pork was a little dry, I would have gave them 4 stars if the meat was not so dry. The egg was cooked to perfection. A great place to get a quick bowl of ramen late in the city. Check it out if in the area.

Chanpen Tee: Ramen is delicious! Sushi is fresh and tasty. Staff is friendly. Nice decoration.
Response: Thank you

Katie Kleinot: To-go order: pork gyoza, spicy tuna roll and California w/ crab meat roll. I didn’t love it. The pork gyoza was dry inside and had a strange flavor. The California roll was the best of the three things and was still just ok. The spicy tuna looked like it was going to be good (had a big chunk of fish instead of being chopped up) but the flavor just wasn’t there. Those things just seem like basics any sushi place should do well, so considering that they were pretty bad, I wouldn’t go back.

Crystal Sings: Great experience..... my 2nd visitI really thought I was in Tokyo for a second 😂🤤‼️ Wonderful, thoughtful service. I will be back again
Response: Thank you

Julie & Jack Mulville: Such high quality sushi and great service!! Highly recommend the double salmon roll, the Godzilla roll, the Mexican roll and the appetizer of fried duck spring roll.

Sushi Keiko: what do users think?


Pica Nagano: Love this restaurant! We’ve ordered out from here many times and this was the first time dining in. We got the rainbow roll, the salmon avocado cilantro roll and the sashimi sampler. The fish quality is very good, the fish to rice ratio is perfect, and they had thick fat slices of sashimi. The hamachi was so smooth and delicious. It’s such a great value for the price. They also have Orion beer, which I don’t typically see on drink menus - it’s such a refreshing, clean beer with a creamy aftertaste. We also got the fried banana ice cream with ginger ice cream and it was lovely! It wasn’t too sweet and was a perfect finish to the meal. Great ambiance and great service — it feels very authentic. I will definitely keep ordering takeout and dine in when possible!

DC Explorer: Got the teriyaki salmon meal. It came with miso soup, a generous portion of rice, and tiny sides of sweet potato puree, spinach, and mushrooms (the size of containers used for dressings). It was good quality and quantity for the price (about $20), but if you're really hungry and don't like rice so much, you might want sushi or an appetizer, too. Looking forward to trying sushi next time.

Jessica Yi: Got a couple rolls and some tempura via delivery for a late lunch. Food was not stale or anything but definitely not well made. Rolls were loose and fell apart, and were around Trader Joe’s rolls in terms of flavor. Tempura batter was really thick. It was edible but there’s just so many better options out there, even at Safeway or Whole Foods.

Michael Bronfen: The worst Japanese sit down meal we’ve had in DC in 30 years!! This is at best a low end take out joint. The sake bottle I ordered had been TAMPERED with and filled with WATER!! This has NEVER HAPPENED TO ME IN AMERICA, only in Russia!! No apologies from the Chinese-speaking staff (new Owners?) which meant they knew or didn’t care. The waitress brought us a soy sauce bottle labeled low sodium then when we said we wanted the HIGH salt bottle she said the stupid green bottle was indeed false and it was the high salt version!! OMG! This place should go out of business. It is no longer the place of 5 years ago!! Really sad. The WORST PLACE. Go to Spices in Cleveland Park instead. The service there is mediocre but the food is acceptable!!
Response: Hi Michael, sorry to hear about your experience. I spoke with the new waitress, she brought the wrong sake which we don’t sell anymore. About the soy sauce, we actually only have the house brewed soy sauce. If you give us the opportunity to serve you in the future, please contact me (Ferry) at sushikeiko2309@gmail.com so we can make it right.

Megan Harvey: My partner and I ordered lunch from Sushi Keiko today and it was so fresh and delicious! We were happy to see so many veggie options (including a veggie sushi platter and veggie ramen) given that I am pescatarian and my partner is vegan. Everything was packaged neatly and tightly. I was impressed that my miso soup was still hot even though I picked it up about 15 minutes after getting the notification that my order was ready. So happy to have this restaurant in the neighborhood!
Response: Megan, thank you for stopping by and gave us a glowing review. When you have time, please email us at sushikeiko2309@gmail.com. We would like to give you an online promo code as a token of appreciation.

Julianna Evans: sorry - hate to be the bad guy here but by far the worst sushi in DC. Wildly mediocre. To the point where the last time we ordered form here I said to myself never again. I mean it's that mediocre and sadly the prices do not reflect it's mediocrity!

Nicole Miller: Excellent sushi and friendly service. My friend and I were excited that they were open for dine-in. Our server was very gracious even though they were quite busy with take out orders. I can’t wait to come back and try more menu items!

gauri kapoor: Great sushi. Fresh and yummy. Amazing service. Amazing staff. They also gave us a ride home (down the street) since it was raining when we were done and had our two kids with us. That’s service that’s not just limited to the restaurant. That’s kind human values. Priceless.
Response: Thank you Gauri for the kind review. Glad that you enjoyed the food and service. It was our pleasure and glad that we were able to get you and your family home safe and dry!

Jason Yeung: Good food, friendly service. Portion sizes are small.For 2 small containers for 6 rolls.
Response: Jason, sorry to hear that, but our sizes are Japanese standard for hoso maki and ura maki.

Sovann Ry: One of the best hidden gem sushi restaurants in D.C. It's my first time here, I'm from LA and had many kind of sushi restaurants, this location is very fresh, unique, and delicious. The interior is cozy, comfortable and has a great Japanese atmosphere. Customer service was phenomenal 👏 and our server, Sidney, was friendly, kind, fast and attentive. The chief knew what they were doing and presented beautiful dishes. My tonkotsu ramen was full of flavor and I loved it. I really enjoyed the fresh sashimi assortments, delightful and delicious. Thank you so much for the great experience and delicious food!

Umi Japanese Cuisine: what do users think?


Alexandra Wisbiski: My favorite sushi restaurant in DC! Affordable prices, good quality, and friendly workers! Great location to either get carryout and take it to the park or zoo or to eat at after the zoo. Just wish their carryout radius were bigger! It's okay though, just means I venture out more to get it!

David Zeledon: Easily one of my favorite sushi/Japanese restaurants in DC. Near the National Zoo by the Woodley metro this is a true neighborhood gem with great quality with fresh ingredients and they do not hold back on the meat, plus friendly staff. I’ve been coming to this place since 2014 and each time I dine or carry out food they do not disappoint.

Bailey: First night visiting DC, we came to Umi. Overall, it was a good experience. The service was not exceptional, but not bad, either. Our appetizers were delicious, and the entrees were fairly good. I had chicken fried rice, which was good but needed some special sauce (I stole my mother's) and had a few too many onions for my taste. My dad had sashimi, and he liked most of the fish on it. My mom had the chicken katsu, which she really enjoyed. Salads were dressed with a very interesting dressing that started off sweet and ended smoky. The highlight was definitely the appetizers, though. We had pork gyoza, which was the perfect balance of chewy and crispy. We also had rock shrimp, which were delightful. Extremely crispy with a strong umami taste and a touch of heat at the end. Highly recommend them.

Leon Yogi: I've been ordering pickup from here for years. The masterful chef makes each order look like a masterpiece painting!

Charles Sekafetz: Walking around trying to find a reasonably priced meal in this area I stumbled upon Umi's. Up the stairs and into a quiet little dark sushi joint I went. I got there early before the lunch rush came in I suspect, just minutes after opening. The tables hadn't been set yet. That was how early. I ordered a Miso soup and a Fantastic roll. The soup wasn't ready so they asked if I would like my roll first. That was nice and I opted to do that. It was excellent. The special wrap and the plating made it visually so eye appealing that I felt bad eating it - to a point. Delicious. The miso was about on par with any other place and to do it again, I might opt for another starter instead. Would I recommend this place? Absolutely. Will I come here again in the future. Absolutely. Service staff were pleasant. Big bonus around here.

Beth Gardner: Really good food! Didn't realize there was no dine-in option until arriving, but the carry-out food was excellent. Great service and friendly staff.

Action Combat Tutorial: I knew they were getting some bad publicity but I figured I would try them out and give a fair review. I found the food to be average at best and over priced. Theres also what looked like bug didnt stick around to figure out. For the price, I wasn't expect drunk-night quality food. Horrible experience

Becca Doermann: Delicious sushi! The Mexican roll is our favorite but all of their rolls are amazing!

Jeff Vaughan: I like the location, close to the Marriott hotel and Metro Station. The sushi was delicious and the service was friendly. The dining area is small, so this place is good for smaller groups and individuals.

Meredith Fennessy: Delicious fresh sushi. Best sushi I’ve had in a long time. Their hand rolls are amazing.

Robert Nitschke: This is like the Sushi Stop of the east coast except no need to tip since it is counter service. Individual roll prices are cheap, but you can get even better deals with their combos. There is seating but not exactly a nice sit down place.

Z: Wonderful food! The cheapest best tasting sushi in DC! Definitely worth going, if you’re having trouble finding it it’s on the top floor in the business building

Omar H: The sushi rice was very smushy and the fish quality was average at best :(

Wesley Rogerson: Exceptionally clean and quick, albeit a little hard to find (search the second floor via escalator or climb the stairs on the library side.) Yakisoba looks delicious, and the miso soup is perfect for a chilly day. Prices on the website need to be updated, the $7.50 special has been bumped up to $10.00.

Liz Austern: This place is literally a hole in the wall, and difficult to find, but it is spotlessly clean, and the service is great. Located on the interior of an office building behind a pizza place, a Washington Sports Club, and an art store, they stay in business because their food is good enough for people to seek them out. Strictly a cash-and-carry joint*, but they have everything from sushi to bento boxes to tempura to teriyaki, well-prepared and reasonably priced (for downtown DC). * - there are several tables outside the restaurant, but they are general use, not specific to the restaurant. I like the teriyaki and the sushi, but I'm not adventurous enough to try the more exotic dishes even though they are probably excellent. Only complaint - the lunch rush can seem a bit disorganized, although they're pretty good about first-in, first-out.

Audrey Warren: The counter person is very unfriendly and becomes even more so if you ask for anything different. The quality of the rice today was awful - it used to be more consistently good. I've had sushi and rice balls in Japan and this rice was much over cooked - very disappointing -

M. A.: I eat here when I am working at a close location. The line here for lunch gets really long so you know it's great. I usually get the bento with miso soup. Sometimes I get snacks like pocky or mochi.

David Walsh: Stellar preparation, flavors, and service. A hidden gem (seriously, it’s hard to find)

Noel Woerner: Best kept secret on K street. Anyone looking for quality sushi seek no further. This is the closest establishment to a SushiStop in DC let alone the region.

Craig Thackray: Great value. Feels like a place with real heart behind it. Surprisingly wide menu, going well beyond sushi. A hidden gem of a place.

SUSHI SNOB: what do users think?


Amy Sands: They changed their hours longer!!!! I am so happy. I always crave their sushi right after I eat it. MONDAY 11AM-3PM TUESDAY - FRIDAY 11AM-8PM SATURDAY 4PM-8PM Gogogogogo :) Wow. Suki Asia has a top notch chef that presents high quality delicious sushi! Heard that the sushi chef, Django, has worked in multiple different upscale sushi restaurants before opening up his own restaurant. You can definitely tell that his experiences and skills are brilliant by bringing many flavors to the table. Each fish is very fresh and it melts in your mouth. Got to try Suki Asia or else you are missing out on great sushi. Quality >

Yun Fu: Today is the first time in my life eating chirashi on a plate not in a bowl. The sushi and chirashi is good everytime I order in the restaurant. However, if I order from uber, the quality varies a lot. It is not a matter of temperature or delivery time. The quality of sashimi itself is much worse when I order on uber.

Samuel Sands: Suki Asia is a hole in the wall sushi place with amazing quality fish! This is my favorite sushi place in all of DMV. Django has worked at many upscale sushi restaurants before opening his own shop in the heart of Dupont. My favorite rolls were the shrimp tempura roll and the spicy salmon with cilantro. The tuna nigiri is absolutely to die for!

Avelyn Austin: Delicious fresh sushi! I popped in for a quick lunch and was in and out in 5 minutes! I got my go to rolls: spicy salmon and spicy tuna.

Amar Khenmedekh: My first feeling about this place was so clean, fast service and fastfood price but food quality was very good. Probably I will visit if I have a chance.

Nicole Reed: Love that they have items labeled as gluten free! Always fresh and delicious — super quick too!

Diya Li: Great, high qualify sushi. Staff was friendly. Environment was clean and calm. What more can you ask for?

Garrett Honea: A no frills, lunch only Japanese and Korean restaurant. The sushi is fresh and delicious, and the Korean specials offer a great value for a budget lunch. The space is small, so sometimes during the lunch rush you need to get your food to go.

Ashlina Chin: Not the best sushi I've ever had, but they were quick and friendly. There is limited seating but the place is adorably decorated. Great for just a quick bite for lunch.

A Treetop: We ate here today based on the strong reviews, and were really disappointed (then looked at yelp where there are a lot more reviews in sync with what we experienced). Basically if you luv grocery store sad little sushi then this is the place for you, otherwise avoid. I had the sashimi/sushi plate and my friend the Beef Pho, both were lame. Quick service though!

Sushi Ogawa 鮨小川: what do users think?


Mike H: We had the $180 omakase and were not disappointed at all. Nirigi and maki were all well-crafted in traditional style with fresh ingredients. However, we were more impressed by the work that went into the appetizers. Even the deceptively-simple chawanmushi came with complex and rich flavor that you can't find in many places. The two last photos were unagi don and sushi from the a la carte menu.

Tracy Li: The food is fine but I would not recommend to try omakase here. Some nigiri are not fresh, you can taste the fish is melting in your mouth without the texture that’s supposed to be. I talked to someone about the fish and she just said she would inform the chef. I didn’t get a response even when we headed home. It’s over price and the price doesn’t match their decorations. There’s still something good: my friends said their takeout are better and toro/chutoro/otoro are good. I would probably try take-out next time. Their website is also great because I would love to know what’s in season and the latest arrival.

Jiaren Li: Overall an enjoyable experience. My party arrived slightly late and was accommodated well to the best of their ability. The chef was displayed his talent amazingly and was able to answer our questions at same time regarding fish and preparation.

Taraneh M: This restaurant is a total rip-off. Server was good. Sushi was good. But they were not worth $240 a person. For that price, you want the fancy atmosphere, not cracked glass door,… you want server to Wear a uniform, not jeans. Server had his cell phone nearby and washed hand with water (not soap). For sushi place, this is unprofessional. You want the chopstick to be special not a cheap disposable one,,,. The food and experience was worth $80 person. This place is a fraud and ripoff. Not sure how they are staying in business. Probably they are dependent on random tourists who come there only once. I feel really bad to provide this review specially that it is hard for restaurants to survive because of pandemic. I do believe that we were ripped off today and that is not a good feeling.

Min Park: I had MATSU SUSHI ASSORTMENT DELUXE for two. It was to-go order, nicely packed and fish was fresh and rice also taste good.

Desiree: Superb Omakase experience. Fixed chef menu $150 per person, sat at the Sushi counter and the chef just kept serving us sushi after sushi, top notched. Had a great sake to go with. Restaurant is situated in the premium neighborhood of Kalorama, may need to loop around the neighborhood to look for a parking spot. Definitely will come back.

Nahal Jalali: Really amazing Omakase experience with great service, wonderful friendly and informative staff, and a low key down to earth environment. In my opinion, chefs bar is the way to go with Sushi Ogawa- you really get the premium treatment there!

Jennifer Kenyon: When you walk into Sushi Ogawa, you recognize that it is a humble place. The ambience is more like a mom-and-pop style sushi place, but the omakase was top tier. The variety of dishes was delightful and well balanced, and the chef was personable and engaging. It was everything we wanted out of an omakase. The $240 price point was a little steep, but we will definitely be back.

Ana Fowler: Hands down the best sushi I have ever had! Salmon that melts in your mouth and service that makes you feel like family - now my go to takeout!

Amber Mitchell: I would like to start by saying, this was worth more than the price!! This was by far the best omakase experience that we have had. Our sushi chef, Kevin was very knowledgeable and friendly. We easily struck conversation with him and felt at home while he prepared our meal. Everything was perfection. From the braided fish, to the wagyu, to the sea urchin. There is not one bad thing I can say about Kevin's skill and the phenomenal customer service of this restaurant. We will definitely be coming back here the next time we are in town!

Elizabeth Dou: This was the perfect place to stop by during such a cold and windy day. The food came out hot and everything tasted fresh. There was a lot of flavor and sizable meat portion within the ramen. We only ordered one sushi roll and it was just okay. It was missing something maybe it needed more sauce or something. We ordered strawberry mochi for dessert and it was absolutely delicious. This place had a great atmosphere and our server was friendly. I’d definitely come back and try other things on the menu.

Liliya Susong: Great food, everything was very fresh and very tasty (note that whatever is marked “spicy” on the menu is not terribly spicy in fact). Served very fast too. The restaurant was clean, casual but cozy, with a true Asian vibe and friendly staff. We absolutely enjoyed our dinner here and will definitely bring the guys more business.

Promiti Ghose: Absolutely love this place! We were visiting and found this place right by the Marriott. Friendly servers and great food. Good comes in quick. They have a bar and serve alcohol. Noticed they also served take away . Highly recommend for a good sushi , Asian food place

Ryan Beigel: Super yummy! I got the winter chicken ramen which was good and not too salty (I've had very salty ramen at other ramen shops in Dc). The noodles were chewy and delicious. The sushi was fresh! We shared a yummy roll (that's the name). The service was fast and pleasant. The place was clean and it was bustling with people but they sat people quickly. We'll be back

Sisi: I am and was a regular customer during the pandemic— before they had opened back up the restaurant in person. And let me just say that this is most definitely one of my favorite sushi spots in DC. In my opinion, better than the sushi they serve in Chinatown. A few key points to keep in your mind when you come to this restaurant. 1. Very clean! 2. Definitely try the speciality sushi rolls, they are amazing (tried the Toryumon, Truffle, and Dragon rolls so far!) 3. During rush hours, you may not able to have a waiter fast enough as you were during there chill hours. Thanks for reading my review! You should definitely come to this spot!

Jennifer Parker: This place is UNREAL. For the price, the sushi rolls are MASSIVE and delicious! You definitely get the a lot of bang for your buck. We also had several appetizers, which were all amazing. We will definitely be back...I'm excited to try the ramen next time!

Rodney Houston: I really like this place. They have got the freshest sushi I've ever tasted. It's like they have the fish still alive in the back waiting for you to order. Please excuse the photos, I was really hungry and everything looked so good thar I started digging in before I snapped a pic. The food is presented beautifully.

George Zoto: Great place with the best ramen 🍜 I've had in town. Highly recommended. Their mochi and red tea are also delicious 😀

Chris Nicholson: Would have walked right past it if not for Google maps. Below street level. The staff is exceptional. Friendly attentive and make sure everything is the best it can be. Order a bunch of different things which range between solid to good to great. Pricing was pretty reasonable for D.C. as well. Would definitely stop in again.

Zoe Rabago: Great spot for sushi/ramen/other Great price for the portion they give you Was seated fast with reservations Friendly staff Attentive server Good food

Sushi Nakazawa: what do users think?


Haseeb Mohammed: This place was just jaw dropping. The sashimi was just out of this world and the service was impeccable. Each dish was just a plethora of flavors and so different from the other. Each piece was carefully laid out to be different from each other and made sure no conflicting tastes. One thing about the service that was amazing is that they noticed I was left handed so they reorganized the dishes for me so I'd start from the left while my right handed friends would start from their right. That level of service is next level. This is a Michelin star restaurant and it was 100% worth. It's a pretty penny tho expect to pay at minimum $300 per person for this amazing experience. If I could afford it I'd come here all the time 😂

Billy Vaughn: I've gone twice so I tried both the counter and the dining room and both times were fantastic. The counter is definitely the way to go but if you can't get a seat, the dining room is still incredible you just lose the interaction with the chef. Every bite is delicious and perfectly seasoned. I will definitely be back!

Shaun Stapleton: The restaurant has most of the qualities of any other Michelin star restaurant I've been too from food quality to service. The one knock I had was for the atmosphere. Its a small space and got really loud when it was full which took away from the experience.

Loren: Sushi that melts in your mouth. Initial server was a bit snobby, but thankfully the others were better. Restaurant’s entrance is also a bit difficult to find. High price point, but likely the best sushi I’ve had in DC.

Tom Szelag: Every bit as good as omakase I've had in Tokyo, perhaps even slightly better. Really an exceptional selection and variety in last night's set, sourced from all over the planet. Some typical fare like a sampling of tuna from lean up to ultra fatty, as well as creative takes like the flavor of scallop paired with yuzu kosho, or mochi-like texture of aori-ika. At the time of writing there are actually two omakase options at the sushi bar - a standard set and a "super" omakase including additional tastings like a variety of uni with sauces and seasonings, and other items. Either way it's an excellent set. There's also an impressive list of Japanese whiskies which I was particularly fond of! If and when I'm in DC again I would make it a point to eat here again!

luci wang: Great traditional style nigiri omakase. Everything was super fresh and excellently prepared. We added A5 wagyu and uni tasters

Elle P: Absolutely blown away by the super omakase menu. Such a unique experience. One of the best dinners I’ve had in DC! Caviar, a fatty tuna flight, uni flight, raw oysters, nigiri… all prepared right in front of you. And now they’re open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Highly recommend.

David Page: Phenomenal staff and chefs. Sushi counter experience is the only way I would recommend going. It's worth the extra cost. Very enjoyable. Even accommodated my request for no shellfish and substituted other fish. Classic Omakase is 21 pieces. Upgrades for wagyu. If you want a sushi experience as close to one you will find in Japan.... this is it. Itadakimasu!!!!

Klara Cheung: Some street parking available with this being in DC. We had a great time time and the food was delicious. It was an amazing experience and we enjoyed every bit of it. Service was impeccable. We ordered the bottle of the Dewazakura Boquet [$95]. They pour it for you and keep the bottle elsewhere and fill up your glass as it gets low. We opted for the Premium Omakase Experience [$150]/ person]. Each piece selected was amazing and full of flavor. They have chopsticks, a wet towel wipe and ginger at the table for you. Started off with a warm hand towel wipe. Ended the evening with some green tea and egg custard at the end. Loved every bit of this experience. We also ordered the Gold Osetra Caviar as one of the supplements that came a little over halfway through. Also very delicious.

Victor Wang: A fantastic meal as long as you're not turned off by the price tag. Was able to be sat at the sushi bar thanks to many last minute cancellations even as I booked on the same day. They carry over as many details from a high end traditional Japanese establishment and I loved all the little touches. The staff are all extremely well trained and made it a great experience from start to end. The chef interacting directly with you at the sushi bar is extremely knowledgeable and able to answer questions and they give a lot of details about the origin and food you're being served. Lots of unique ingredients that you may not get to experience too often.

Takara 14: what do users think?


Jordan Fischer: Fun, unique maki rolls; lots of different sakes to try; and the lightest, airiest fried chicken I have ever eaten in my life. Atmosphere is casual and cute. I really enjoyed my experience, I'll plan on going back here regularly. :)

TPMT Associates: Definitely a huge disappointment. We were here on the recommendation of DC’s best new restaurant of 2021. Everything that can go wrong went wrong. It took them forever to seat us, even when there r people working everywhere. It took forever to get the food, and the order was wrong when it came or that it didn’t come at all. Food came at all different times - when half the table was done, then then food for the rest came. And the price is ridiculous for what it is. There were 4 sushi chefs behind the sushi bar so it’s impossible to imagine why it took forever for 6 tables. The appetizers were absolutely terrible. The chicken karage is better At Popeyes than here and the saki mushrooms was boiled with butter and garlic. The charisi bowl was the pretty good. But the rest was just meh at best. The worst is after the owner came after and found out everything was wrong - she offered us a 10% off. Sorry not coming back.

Giulliana Ratti: The hospitality and service at this place is amazing. We did the “Trust the Chef” experience and every meal they brought out was better than the last. Janice, the owner, was so attentive and thoughtful throughout the night. The chef, Johny, outdid himself. Could not recommend this place enough!

Dannys Ice Cream Truck: We stumbled across this place when visiting DC. We actually had Thai right down stairs and saw the colorful entrance and had to check it out. Service was great. Sushi was on point. Prices were really fair. The owner suggested some of their signature sushi and it did not disappoint. .

Lucy Ruderman: Cute, colorful sushi restaurant with a pretty big menu of both sushi and nonsushi Japanese food. We had three rolls and the pork belly gyoza. Gyoza were okay but lacked a lot of flavor. Rolls were pretty good— the one with toro (left in the picture) was the best. Service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was quiet for a Saturday night and easy to get into.

Lev Boonin: This place is amazing and a welcome addition to the DC food scene! The food came in delightful wooden boxes and were presented beautifully. Each roll tasted fresh and delicious. Not to mention everything was surprisingly affordable. We will definitely be ordering again soon!

Andrew Harper: Great new place 🙂 For apps we had the brussel sprouts and salmon - the brussel sprouts were amazing! So yummy, I could’ve had an entire second serving. For the main, we tried the garnet roll and the opal roll. Really enjoyed the eel! Definitely recommend the green tea mochi ice cream for dessert - low price and a great portion size. We met the owner who was so kind, and she was very enthusiastic and engaged with all of the customers.

Marian Dvorak: HIGHLY recommend! Make sure to order the salmon appetizer and the pork belly appetizer...both were amazing. The sushi was so fresh we can't wait to go back. Also, the staff was so friendly which made for an enjoyable dinner!

Alex Rose: Started off with them moving us around 3 times. Ended up upstairs on the third floor alone. Felt like an abandoned warehouse. Wanted to love this place but didn’t. Food was not good. Brussels sprouts were the best part and fine. Special rolls were not good either. Quality of fish not it. The vibe was off too. I wasn’t sure if I was in a 2000s gay bar or a tiny neighborhood sushi joint that you are loyal to but makes your stomach hurt every time you eat it. EXTRAORDINARILY over priced. This place has potential, just need to refine the space, train their staff, and stick to a vibe.

Lynelle Nicole: Beautiful decor, not so great service. We had two different servers who both seemed to be training. The food was alright but not worth the price or wait time.
