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.

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.

Sushi Express: what do users think?


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.

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.
Response: Thank you

Torai Sushi: what do users think?


Evita Pass: This is a small place on capital hill I went to for lunch. The ramen was simple, delicious, and fulling and the unagi with cucumbers was great as well. I'll definitely be coming back to try other items they offer.

Lani: Tried this place and it was great. The miso soup was SO GOOD!! Usually miso is just miso but this miso had me wishing I bought more lol. The sushi was great. Wish I had tried it sooner.

Charlie Turner: This place is criminally underrated. The fact that the objectively terrible sushi restaurant two doors down is busy all the time, while this gem is mostly quiet is a scandal. Fish quality is outstanding. The dine-in atmosphere is really chill and cool. Not pretentious at all. Great service and talented chefs. Don’t sleep on Torai Sushi.

Tammy Cho: Sushi is great. Not bad service just zero service. We ordered ramen and never received it until 55 minutes later. Order MIA. We were the first customers in the restaurant and people who ordered after us finished before us.. Things to note: 1. Self serve only for menu, ordering, and paying 2. Very small space

Ricardo M Gonzalez: The best place in Navy Yard for suchi... great service, food and they staff is super friendly

Alison Neary: I’d been to Torai Sushi once prior to COVID, but once we started getting takeout from them in the age of social distancing, we were blown away. Ordering online is extremely easy and the time estimate they provide you is actually accurate. Whenever we’ve ordered from them, they’re super quick - no longer than 20-25 minutes. I will recommend doing takeout from them (whether we are in a pandemic or not). They are definitely a hole-in-the-wall spot and don’t have a ton of seating inside, so don’t go with a big group. Usually when we order from them, we’re in a sushi rut and go wild ordering 7-9 rolls at a time for the three of us, and they display them so nicely on a tray every time. The rolls are great for the price and we appreciate the time and effort they take in making our sushi beautifully displayed - it’s like we got catering for our own little sushi night. Definitely check this spot out!

Claire Silberg: I was enticed by the reviews. Ive been on the hunt for the best sushi in DC but continue to be disappointed. The rice and soy sauce was not quality. Sushi just okay. If you've had sushi in NY or LA, don't bother trying this spot.

Xavier Agnelli: You walk in to the tiny and hidden Capitol Hill gem at the end of Barracks row, across from the USMC Commandant’s house and think to yourself, is this place going to be any good? Rest assured this place is wonderful. I have to say, this place is more than worth the visit. The Korean Husband and wife owners are both incredibly friendly, and the Sushi is the best Sushi on Capitol Hill, unless you want to shell out a bunch of clams over at Sushi Hachi, which is fantastic, but significantly more costly than Torai. Also the selection Sushi at Torai is much more extensive and imaginative. Sushi Hachi is the best sushi on Capitol Hill, but you pay for it and it’s far less imaginative with a much smaller menu. Torai is the best sushi on Capitol Hill for the price and it really is number two after Sushi Hachi.

Caitlin Kinsey: This place was amazing. The chirashi bowl was really fresh with thick, quality cuts of fish and the rolls were equally as incredible. I also got a spicy poke bowl with ahi tuna and loved it.

Brian Wilson: Really enjoyed our meal here. The rolls were complex and flavorful, the poke bowl was bigger than expected. The Yellowtail Belly sashimi was the best. But the part that I will go back for is the intimacy, the handful of small table, the proximity to the chefs and the quiet ambiance that allows a conversation.

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

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!

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.

Sushi Capitol: what do users think?


Sam M: One of the better sushi spots in DC near Capitol Hill. This place is tiny! I definitely don’t recommend this place if you are planning to visit this place with a big group. They have several tables and you can also sit at the bar. I ordered sushi and sashimi gold platters. The place was packed and took a while to get both orders. The quality of sashimi and sushi were pretty good. I wouldn’t say this place is better than sushi taro or nakazawa, but it is still good for the price even though their price went up dramatically since my last visit. I was frustrated that they didn’t serve the sushi right away and waited until another sashimi platter to be made. They should’ve just served it right away. Other than that I had a very pleasant experience and the staff were friendly and accommodating throughout the dinner service.

Savanah Ferguson: Best sushi I’ve had in DC. Great atmosphere, BYOB, and extremely friendly staff. This is the perfect date spot! We came here two nights in a row because we liked it so much!

Rachel Fetrow: I have had many wonderful in-restaurant experiences pre-pandemic, and I was thrilled to see they survived this long. However today I ordered takeout from Sushi Capitol for the first time - ordered 3 servings of omakase, miso soups, and one seaweed salad and had it delivered via Uber eats. Sadly, they fail to tell you when ordering delivery that the omakase platter has dramatically changed. Instead of what was previously a 3-piece appetizer + ~20 pieces of top notch nigiri, I received an 8-piece roll of ground tuna (something I would never order if given the choice), 9 pieces of nigiri, egg and fish eggs. The nigiri is still good, and good quality, but I paid exactly the same price $50 ea for these platters, plus a delivery premium to receive a far inferior product both in size and quality. I understand that restaurants have had to cut costs because of business being down due to the pandemic, and I probably still would have bought something, but I’m writing this review primarily because they don’t tell you what you’re paying for before making the purchase for delivery. The sushi was delicious in spite of all this, so I still recommend, just be aware what you’re buying.

Scott Matus: Stiff competition with Rayburn Cafeteria sushi, but this takes the cake. Prices are commensurate with quality, so thank goodness for that MRA increase. Helps ease the pain of those long markup days when you start questioning the decisions in life that brought you to this moment.

Riley Chu: Amazing experience! Great food and awesome staff. Cooks were so friendly and one even helped me learn how to use chopsticks!! The owner is a very kind man. My family had a great time. Definitely recommend:)

Tracy Huang: My favorite place to get sushi in DC. It is decently priced and so easy to miss if you just walk by. Super low key place, but their omakase is my go to for small celebrations and I get takeout when I have sushi cravings. The owner/manager is this super friendly Turkish gentleman. His father in law (Japanese) is the main chef. They've opened up other locations on Conneticut and in Chinatown (under different names), but this spot on the hill is my fav. Have been coming back for years and I really hope they stay open with the same quality for years to come!

Igor at skvltd.media: Great hidden sushi spot with chef's choice and regular offerings. Chefs' knifework is fantastic and the dishes reflect their skills fully.

Jay Doppio: Wow! Best sushi I've had in the US and at least as good as most of the places I went to when I lived in Japan. Service was great. Sushi was super fresh. All of the fish was amazing. Best uni I've had since I was last in Japan. Best anago I e ever had. I've been to all of the top sushi places in DC and this one, by far, is the top one. I highly recommend Sushi Capitol. I cannot wait to visit Sushi Capitol again!

Laura Hergert: I order take out from here at least once a month (probably more during these quarantine times). I typically get the Sushi Gold (and a spicy yellowtail roll) and I’ve never been disappointed. The fish is always super fresh and the flavors are incredible. The staff is super kind - I love the cute messages on the take out bags!

Holmes: Top notch! I had passed on trying this place because there's no good place to order online, but finally stopped by in person for take out. Their menu is extensive and full of what you expect from a proper sushi bar. The service was enthusiastically friendly and helpful. Whoever was at the door deserves a raise. The sushi is *excellent* and I cannot stress that enough. Flavorful, well made, and proper proportions. I splurged on the O'o Toro sushi and was not disappointed. Highly recommend. It's worth the stop.

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.

Bluefin Sushi: what do users think?


Jereth Tolentino: I’ve been meaning to try this establishment for a while now. It’s a nice small Sushi house in front of the canal in Georgetown. Unfortunately that’s all this place is, a nice authentic location in Georgetown. The menu was pricey and the food was ok. The food is not bad but definitely pricey. Also they served my food on a to go plastic bowl!? It kinda ruined the mood and vibe of the place. Everyone around me was eating on regular plate and bowl and here’s my food on a plastic bowl. When I was ordering I ask the lady what the Sushi chef was making because it looks very good and the presentation was nice. She said it was a Chirashi Bowl. So I told her I would like the same. I asked the lady why mine came on a plastic bowl she said because of COVID? I looked around and not a single person was eating on a plastic bowl. She started to make things up and at the end she realized that I wasn’t buying her story. I would not recommend this place and I wont go back again. I took my wife to this place and felt bad that we had this experience.

kerwin Xu: My experience is great, order Sushi Gold and Shrimp tempura roll. I think the quality is good (not best) but a little pricey. I think it worth the price.

lydia y: I’ve been on the hunt for reasonably priced, high quality sushi in DC for awhile now, and this is it. Their more elaborate rolls are definitely more expensive, but it’s worth it for how good they taste. They have a decent sized upstairs where you can take your food to sit down, and their service is fast and professional. Overall an awesome experience.

Sharon Sun: Great authentic sushi. The location was good, service could be a bit better though.

Kallen Fenster: Average sushi and the woman who runs the place is a total wench. We ordered food and because they were closing in 40 minutes they packaged our food and wanted us to eat to-go. We asked for plates because we wanted to eat upstairs but to them that request was the end of the world. Go eat here for mediocre sushi and a terrible management of a restaurant

Joseph Tordella: Bluefin Sushi serves up a wide range of affordable and good rolls. Many rolls are within $6, but watch out for their “special menu” with more creative combinations that cost a bit more. They also have a good selection of saki. It’s located on a pedestrian walkway along the C&O Canal.

Chris Hewitt: Pretty good food. Prices a bit misleading - wouldn’t class it as cheap, once all the additions are added. About $11 for 6 pieces of Sushi.

Lena Choi: Super nice ...I ordered 11 pieces Sushi Silver and it was hearty meal..Generous with the portion size and side condiments (ginger). There were some lines but not terrible.. it depends on date/time but order 30 before you want to pick up.

Caitlin Rulien: Stumbled upon this place because we were having drinks in Georgetown one evening. We took out, so can’t speak to the vibe, but the sushi was great!

Scott Matus: Very good sushi rolls at reasonable prices. Also a few good beer and saki options. Everything we ate tasted fresh, and the rice was well seasoned. The decor is minimalist, but nice, and the service is fine as well. Good place to come if you’re looking for slightly above-average sushi at a very fair price.

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.

Toryumon Japanese House: what do users think?


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

ALEXXXANDRIA 1313: I WAS CRAVING SUSHI AND HAD SEEN HIGH REMARKS ABOUT THIS PLACE ON SOCIAL MEDIA SO I WENT. EXPECTING TO SIT DOWN AND EAT THEY’RE ONLY OPEN FOR TAKEOUT! BUMMER! BUT THAT DIDN’T STOP ME FROM GIVING THIS PLACE A GO. I ordered 2 rolls, an avocado salad, eel + ikura + mackerel sashimi and shrimp/veggie tempura. Everything was great. 10/10 for Presentation!!! They even have alcohol for sale (TO GO). Definitely adding this spot to my list Hopefully they return to dine-in service soon because if their TO GO looks/tastes this good I could only imagine how the experience is sitting inside the place enjoying the food.

Majo Lares: The sushi was great! We ordered different times of sushi, and all of them were good and fresh .

Mischa: As far as sushi goes, the prices are fairly good, and the quality and taste is also good…I just wish they would have more Japanese craft beers! This place is nice, though, so try it if you like sushi and or sake!

Patrick Savoia: Nice little sushi place where you can expect to get a good meal. Staff is usually very friendly and the service can be quick. You won’t be disappointed when you leave.

Luna BD: I came 2 years ago to DC and found this place. Now that I came back for 3 days, I had all my meals there. That is how much I liked it. Rolls are filled with fish rather than too much rice. Perfect ratio. The Capital roll was my favorite: filled with 4 types of fish and covered in avocado and eel. Delicious. Will be back when I'm in DC again and will definitely recommend to anyone that likes sushi. Service is very fast. The temperature is cold but I guess that is good for the fish, so bring a jacket if you need to.

Christoph Reiner: The food was outstanding. We couldn't have been happier with the quality, freshness, and portion size of the sushi. We went for the sashimi boat and every piece of fish was excellent and generously sized. The restaurant only offered take-out at the time of our visit.

Amritha: Was @ Momiji for lunch on a Sunday. We, a party of 2 walked in during late afternoon and were seated right away. Service was good and the food was also good. Would visit again. Ambiance and decor : 4/5 Location and access : 4/5 Service: 4/5 Food taste and quality: 4/5 Cost : $$ ($60 for lunch for 2 with drinks) Worth the $ : yes We ordered cold sake and it was really good. Appetizers were tasty. Loved the sweetie rolls sushi from their signature sushi list. Did not like the “dynamite” sushi rolls much. Must try their white tuna for appetizers. Would visit again 👍

Gabriel jimenez: I order the Rainbow and the crazy roll. I recommend this place.

Ekaterina Mateorova: It was delicious! A huge portion of the freshest fish! the quality of the fish is at a very high level. This portion of Chirashi dinner can feeds two. It is so difficult to find a good restaurant when you have a trip. Momiji was the best chose for my family yesterday.

Louis C: Went here because of the high rating.Fast service, reasonably friendly. Not sure why they’re still closed inside.The sushi was not very good though. Nice presentation but it was mostly flavorless. Texture was ok. Really a pretty “meh” meal overall. Try someplace else imho.

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.

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!

Donburi: what do users think?


Rose Muise: We both ordered the Sakedon and did all but lick the bowl clean! The simplicity and cleanliness of the first floor gave me the sense that my food was about to be GREAT- and I was entirely correct. I ordered to go and then got delayed on my way out the door so my food sat for an extra 15 minutes before I got to it. I was nervous about how the salmon would taste with the delay, but the way that the bowl was packaged with the fish separate from the rice was the perfect level of protection. The quality of the food was excellent for the price. Every component was intentional and with the perfect ratio. The salmon seemed to be great quality so there was no need to hide it under piles of unnecessary toppings. I am truly looking forward to coming back to try out the rest of the menu.

Hilda Kroll: I really enjoyed the Ebi Katsudon. The shrimp was delicious, the rice piping hot, and the egg well cooked to order. Very nice staff. Seating is up a flight of stairs.

Naile Ruiz: The katsu coating was a little too flakey, but I enjoyed the dish! The curry was very runny and flavorful. The radish cut the strong flavor gracefully. Enjoyed it! The restaurant is located on the second floor and they're doing construction on the building on the right so if you're not careful you might miss it. Contact-less ordering is done whe. You walk in. There are tables for indoor dining one or two flights up from that floor.

Mohan Sun: We got dinner here and the food is very solid. We ordered pork butt and mixed katsu don. Both are very flavorful and perfectly cooked. A big shoutout to the staff too. I forgot my purse there. They called and waited for me even though it already passed the closing time. Very nice and hardworking folks. I would definitely go back.

Sharon: Delicious! Nice fast dining experience and incredibly yummy :) Staff was also so friendly. Loved the variety in my meal as well, I will definitely be back! Just note this was the perfect amount for me (a pretty small person), but might not be enough for someone with a larger appetite.

Onyinyechi A: The 3 star rating is about my entire experience. So first when you walk in and have two digital kiosk to fill out your order. You then pay and go up either one or two floors and pick a seat. Unbeknownst to me, I then had to go back downstairs and pick up my food. I assumed they would at least bring it to the table or call my number but instead after waiting some time I saw others heading downstairs to go get their food. Then there are no condiments on the 2nd of 3rd floor so if you need more soy sauce or salad dressing you have to go back to the first floor to get it. The table was sticky, the bench seat moved with you. The food was good but the experience was lackluster. If I come back here I will just get take out. At least when I get home everything will be on the same floor.

Mr. R: For any of those who love "coco ichibanya's curry in Japan, this place isn't quite it, but its the closest I've tasted whilst in the continental United States thus far. Give them a try!

Grayson: Great tasting food, very small portion size. $20 + tax for this… Most Japanese restaurants in DC offer more sashimi along with rice and miso soup than Donburi for the same price. Picture is without any bites taken.

baba stephan: Nice meal, but a bit expensive , small portion, 20$ for a meal and a coke add 10% tips and you serve yourself... it should be around 12$ it is the real price all around the world... even less in Japan

Derek Kim: Very good signature dish! Salmon tasted little off but everything else was good!

Chelsea Clarke: So freaking addicting . My friend and I used to go to the one in Bethesda Maryland all the time until it closed we were so sad it closed so now we go to the one in DC we wish there was one closer in Maryland but it’s so worth the drive to DC. The maneger is so nice he’s really cool and sushi toppings is so fresh compared to any other sushi burritos that we have had. 5 stArs forever

Lou Fegans: Friendly service and a great twist on traditional sushi. The sushi burritos are the size of your hand with the same great taste that you love with traditional size sushi. what could be better

Greg Holland: Fantastic experience! Delicious food! Generous portions and the guy working there was super chill and fun.

Shenique Reid: Where do I start! I am a sushi lover and this Sushi Buredo exceeded my wildest expectations. It was packed with flavor, super filling, and tasted fresh. I even called and made a last minute addition and they granted the addition free of charge. I love it here! I will be ordering from this place again soon

Juli Bussey: Tried sushi burritos for the first time with a friend and will definitely be back! Light, fresh tasting but super filling and just hit the spot. I got the Beatrix and loved it. The description of sweet, umami is accurate. We also got the shrimp tempura appetizer on the house (thank you again!) which was super awesome and the sesame dipping sauce was delish. Great music, great service, even better food. Highly recommend giving this a try!!

Wilson Cheung: Work travel is back up! Over 2 years since I've been here but is it still open? I stopped by during posted hours but lights were off. No signs, no nothing on the windows. Looked like the place hasn't been used in months. Then I saw other recent reviews that said it was closed. I've put in a edit to have it labeled permanently closed but google still hasn't change it. Is there any where else to get a decent sushi burrito?

LP: Quick. Reasonably priced. Tasty. Friendly staff. No complaints! I had the nikkia buredo and it didn’t disappoint! Skip the lunch rush and order online for pickup!

Anthony Stewart: Interesting place. Food was pretty good, but the vibe was weird. Only one guy was running the entire show: taking orders, preparing the orders, running the till... it was a bit much to see going on all at once.

Anna Tiraspolskaya: Don’t listen to any of the bad/weird reviews. My bff and I went today again and it was amazinggggg and the guy that works there is super friendly!!

Robin Bell: It’s closed, though the website won’t tell you that. What a disappointment. Looks like it’s been out of business for a while. But if you want excellent ‘proper’ sushi, head to the nearby Gakyu Sushi at 1420 NY Ave. Fabulous.

India Lindsay: Nice environment indoors and sushi was pretty good. Service was attentive and well paced. We enjoyed the sushi, recommend the Godzilla roll and shrimp and scallops skewers.
Response: Thank you for leaving us a rating of your experience at our business.

Tania Abraham: What a really great dining experience at Zeppelin!! My friends and I decided to grab an early dinner before going to see a show at the Kennedy Center - and we could not have been happier starting our evening off at Zeppelin!!! All the drinks available on the happy hour menu were great. My friends and I really felt spoiled for choice with the options; and it translated well into the great taste as well. The service was superb - and the food was really really tasty! As it was my first visit, I decided to go with some of the more popular dishes & those that were recommended by our server. These included: - Ebi Shumai 🤤🤤 (shrimp dumplings) - Tako Yaki (octopus dumplings) 👌🏾👌🏾 - Buta Bara (pork belly) ✨✨✨ - Evica Hotate 🤤🤤 (shrimp wrapped scallops) - Gyu Donburi Bowl 🔥🔥 (beef over steamed rice, topped with a fried egg) - the Sushi Special (🍣🍱) 🤤🤤
Response: Thank you for leaving your feedback. We hope to see you soon.

Gustavo Navarro: New Year’s Eve dinner celebration with friends at Zeppelin was a delightful experience. The atmosphere, food and waitstaff were amazing. What a great place to celebrate the start of the new year. The best Sushi in DC.

IOWA COWBOY: It was great place to have a dinner with beer. Dishes' price is a little bit expensive, but I think it has a value to spend such cost. The only thing distrupting me was the size of seat. It was too tiny table for 4 people. Anyhow, I recommend this place.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We value your business.

Leah Goodwin: Very cool places. I loved the atmosphere and our waiter was amazing! We ordered the beef and onion(don't remember the real name) and it was good just slightly bland but good! Our sushi was fresh and delicious.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We value your business.

Veronika Chan: Got takeout from here and boy was it delicious! I’m usually hesitant about ordering takoyaki from unfamiliar places but I absolutely loved it from Zeppelin! Wish I had ordered more before leaving DC. Perfect balance of savory, texture and moisture in the takoyakis! And the chirashi bowl has some really great sized fresh fish sashimi. Absolutely recommend trying this place out if your in the area!
Response: Thank you for the review. We hope to see you soon.

M. Henry Boettcher: This is my new favorite sushi place. The chef special was intricate and well presented. The flavors were outstanding! As a special treat for our honeymoon we got the sashimi scallop and it is seriously the best thing I've ever eaten in my life. Our server, Lucas, was so kind and attentive. He made our experience even more special. Definitely will be returning here.
Response: Thank you for leaving your review for our business.

Anthony Stewart: Great sushi, and great evening place for outside dining. The seaweed salad is great on the veggie roll and the avocado is buttery and smooth. One can do without their offering of lemonade, however. Takeaway is another issue altogether. Be prepared to wait nearly 30 minutes. We did, and it wasn’t pleasant just standing around waiting that long at the bar as customers came in, were seated and began eating all whilst we waited to have our meals brought to us. If takeaway isn’t an important part of their model, perhaps they shouldn’t offer it. All in all, their food is so good, it’s worth going there again and again.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We value your business.

Jake Hailwood: I'm not a sushi expert so I can't say what you should or shouldn't get other than everything we got I enjoyed a lot, especially the mushroom trio starter. Service was great and informative. I plan on going back.
Response: Thank you for leaving your review for our business.

Soraya H: I really loved the udon noodles, I would go back just for that. I wouldn’t call this a traditional Japanese restaurant, but was deliciously prepared and still very good.

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!
