The Vegan Sushi Club: what do users think?


Lauren Shuman: Finally a place with fun vegan sushi options other than the typical avocado or sweet potato rolls that traditional sushi places offer. I love ordering take out from here and I am always trying something different on the menu.

Annie MOUSSAOUI: First time we found vegan sushi in DC and I recommend +++ ! Likes as real sushi, really fresh and tasty ! Good products, Go for it

Jon Fisher: Overall we liked the food (this is a "virtual restaurant" highlighting the vegan sushi on the menu at Sticky Rice, which is not a veg place). But you can still either eat inside or outside or get takeout or delivery. The fried stuff was really good (garden balls were everybody's favorite, fried Oreos were very tasty also). We also tried the hot hippie roll, big ocean, and a few others I forget. Overall everything was definitely tasty and worth eating. The one thing that we didn't enjoy much was the mock tuna. It didn't seem to have much flavor, and was just sort of a bland gristly texture (maybe from unripe tomato or something?). We were expecting something very fatty and savory, and this was not objectionable but definitely didn't add to the rolls that it was in. One person got the veggie ramen and thought it was just okay. But it was great having a nice selection of vegan sushi available, plus the option to get other stuff off the sticky rice menu.

Myles Cramer: A little on the pricy side, but the sushi was really tasty and there was a pretty unique selection. The Sante Fe Sweet Potato Roll had some kick to it, but was it was really good. The Masumi roll was good as well!

Jacqueline Lippman: Got their spicy avocado rolls and some small plates. Love the food, will be ordering again.

Purely Angi: ALERT - this place is NOT *VEGAN*. Their name is false advertising. They may offer plantbased options but they do sell animals and byproduct items.

Melanie Hiles: Food here is amazing!! We loved everything!

Breanna Coley: The food was delicious!!

Jonathan McKernan: Atrocious is too soft a word for this abomination.

Sticky Rice: what do users think?


Bre Waller: The food was beyond my every expectation. The presentation was beautiful. We had 5 different sushi rolls and every one was fresh, flavorful and well prepared. Our server was attentive and friendly. The whole experience was wonderful.

Tan Sav: Ate here in march 2022. As of that date they are using the qvr code system for ordering and paying. This worked very well for our large group. Food came very quickly. Service was fine.

James Wang: Fantastic sushi and great cocktails. Probably my new favorite sushi place in D.C.! Recommend sticky rice balls

nessa_b99 chillin: Happy we stumbled in here. Friendly staff, great drinks, and amazing food. Glad we found it early in our trip because we’re definitely going to go back.

Ebony Foster: I like how high-tech they are. You order and online and the food comes out shortly after. There are plenty of healthy options and vegan options as well. The food is always fresh here and the service is fast/friendly. There's a guy named Tanner that works here... 🤤 Lol And they're open late so it's a great place to come after a night out. I wasn't on a date but it's a great date spot...dim lights, a little music, and a nice chill vibe.

Christiany Ronquillo: Food was good... The taste of their food reminds me of Singapore taste

M Bish: This place is GREAT! Food and service was amazing. Atmosphere was stellar (hip hop music videos projected on the wall) fun and communicative staff gave us great direction and service. Full bar! Will eat here any time we’re in the neighborhood!

Juliette Leader: The food was good, especially the crispy tofu, but tbh some of the worst service I've seen in the US :( We got our food quickly, but waited over an hour for drinks and needed to go downstairs for four reminders -- until they brought them 7 minutes before closing and we'll after we'd finished drinking. You order through an app and pay in advance (includes a 20% service fee) so our waiter never checked on us, even when we requested service through the app, and you can't change your order later (like cancelling drinks when we were ready to go and they hadn't arrived yet)

Zenobia Hampton: I love the Singapore Noodles so much more than any other places I've tried.. Also their fried cheesecake is amazing! If you wanna grab an app to start with grab the sticky balls, the waitress recommended it and I was much abliged! 🙏🏽

Yaratam Sine: Ordered a few items for pick-up. Really enjoyed a 2 for 1 sushi promo and grabbed a few options to try. A Sesame Salmon Poke bowl ($13) was really fresh and tasted delicious. The only drawback was it surprisingly small size for the price: more like a kids menu mini-bowl. So be aware!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Shibuya Eatery: what do users think?


Saminda Wijegunawardena: Really solid spot overall. Excellent cocktails (the Spanish Magic was perfectly balanced), finger-licking good skewers (sampled both the chicken thighs and the pork and they were dusted perfectly with the rub), tender and well grilled and seasoned eggplant, and competent sashimi. I would say the sashimi was the only thing that could use some improvement, it just wasn't as fresh as what you would expect for a $52 12-piece. I think you're better off getting a few small plates and a couple of maki rolls here. We dined in the cozy and dimly basement at the sushi bar. It's got a cool feel to it though others might find it a bit too cramped. Service was wonderful, our hostess was very friendly and helpful throughout the night.

Isabelle Ku: Oct 2021 More of a 2.5 stars. Good food, friendly service, but very disappointing portion size. This place is a multi-floor building, with the bar upstairs and the sushi in the tiny basement. They have a wooden structure set up on the sidewalk where you can order and pickup drinks and food. The street parking in front is currently blocked off to allow for outdoor dining. We mainly came because we were interested in the Temarizushi box set. The presentation was very pretty and the fish quality was good. But these decorated rice ball sushi are very small. One is about the same size as two nigiri and the fish are sliced VERY thinly. Definitely NOT worth $44. The staff were friendly and all wore masks. I did have to wait a few minutes for my order since they didn't have it ready on time. Most likely won't come again.
Response: Temarizushi is by definition “decorated rice ball sushi with thin slices of fish” as our menu states. It’s supposed to be this way. If you’re looking for a higher ratio of fish to rice, then we would recommend ordering nigiri. Our prices are representative of the high quality fish which is flown in fresh from around the world. This particular menu item takes in upwards of 15 minutes to prepare because of the skill involved. We would love to invite you back to try other items we offer. Please reach out to us directly to arrange another visit if you’d like!

Rajit Sarkar: I used to really like this place, but the quality seems to have gone down recently. Drinks are hit or miss, food and service are OK. Maybe the way to go is to just stick to sitting at the bar, instead of the streetery. Also, keep in mind that a 20% service charge is included on every check no matter your group size (sometimes they'll remind you, often they won't).

Eric Tan: Food was okay. Fish was very fresh. However coming with a family the food was very pricey. The servers were helpful.

Amanda Blake: I rarely post negative reviews, but I got the basic tonkotsu ramen with chashu pork, and none of it was right. The pork didn't have a sear or any caramelization. The broth was so flavorless it was practically water. There was also shredded lettuce for some reason?? And the seaweed was just two giant blocks. It was aggressively bad and more expensive than other, better ramen I've had in DC. I'm not a ramen expert or anything, but I lived in Korea and visited Japan several times, and I can tell you to take your money elsewhere. The service was also terrible, but that was Death Punch's fault.

Rachel Mangum: I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere on each floor. The waiters and cooks were all exceptional. Shout out to Daniel and Mike.A good bunch of vegetarian options.

Larry “Big Schlim” Mcleod: Sushi anyone? Never had it? Craving some? Want to try a new spot? @shibuyaeatery is the place you need to go to!! With traditional Japanese cuisine, this spots food is sooo delicious, you’ll be back for more. Look...I’m not a huge Sushi fan, REALLY, but the options at this spot, the time and dedication that the authentic chefs put into this food, the absolute freshness of their products, AND the prices...got me awestruck and fervently interested in this phenomenal type of food. Located at 2321 18th St., N.W. Washington D.C. (In the heart of Adams Morgan), this spot provides outside seating, indoor dining, and a full bar/lounge on their top level. Their menu reads richly, and sounds mouthwatering!! Menu items include entrees like their gluten free Donburi-Simmered Wagyu Beef & onion with a soft poached egg, served over rice and vegetables ($23), and their Yakisoba (pictured $14) which are stir fried noodles with shredded carrots, onions, scallions, Shitake mushrooms, bean sprouts, Snow pea Shoots, and Green Beans. Check on their gluten free Karaage (Japanese fried chicken $9), or their 6 hr Beef Short Rib with Tare glaze...you can’t go wrong with these. I had their veggie Futomaki roll, filled with carrots, Shitake mushrooms, avocado, snow peas, and a couple of other veggies that aren’t noted on the menu for this item. Nonetheless, this Sushi Roll was the bomb 💣!! Dipped in that nostril flaring wasabi sauce and ginger...I was fully satisfied!! The Vegetable Yakisoba bowl was deliciously hearty. After 2 slices of Sushi and a couple dips in that bowl..I was full full!! Their customer service is swift, attentive, and extra polite. If you come to this spot after 10 p.m. on the weekends you’ll find this handsome, friendly, debonair bouncer that exudes excellent customer service, and has a fierce courtesy about him (ME)!! Parking is no bueno...it’s congested Adams Morgan!! Overall I am wholeheartedly recommending this spot...authentic, fresh, and fulfilling!! That’s it!! **This establishment is Covid compliant** #japenesefood #foodie #washingtondc #bigschlimsreviews #vegatarian #adamsmorgandc #nightlife #goodeats #authentic #sushi #yakisobanoodles #food #cheapeatsdc

Matthew Nguyen: Decent Japanese cuisine with a passionate chef, but waited almost 45 minutes for our food. Would give this place a better rating, if not for poor service and inattentive staff members. Recommend ordering delivery than eating in.
Response: Our apologies for the delay but it was Restaurant Week and we were incredibly busy and still struggling with staffing issues. We hope you’ll still support us in the future!

Adam Twardowski: Mouthwatering wagyu donburi. Perfect for an autumn day. Looking forward to returning.

Chanpen Tee: The curry is good. The pork belly is so tender. The outdoor seating is clean and staff is friendly

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.

Kofuku Ramen & Sushi: what do users think?


Inawis Neupane: We went here for some good Japanese food and we were not disappointed. It was a little expensive than the regular japanese places I have been to but the food was really good. I had Gyoza, sushi and ramen. There was very little to complain about.

Rachit Agarwal: Great tonkatsu ramen. First snow of the winter.. I was cold and hungry, walked into this place, and was so delighted. Surrounded by places that were closed because of the snow.. Kōfuku was open! Got the kofuku tonkatsu ramen to go and it was delicious :)

Rachel L: I have been craving sushi and stumbled upon this place. Our food came out very fast and it was pretty yummy. The sushi was fresh and the fried rice was delicious. It was quiet, clean and our server was kind. Not too pricey and actually decent sushi.

Donnell Lyons: Kofuku Ramen & Sushi, was a good experience. The ramen was good, the gyoza was great and the teriyaki chicken was outstanding. The place is small, but the ramen made you for it, but it needed more miso. Overall great food and customer service.

Amanda Prichard: This has been my go-to Ramen place for years now and I love it. The food is delicious and there's rarely a wait (other ramen restaurants in the area tend to have needlessly long waits).

Chris Crocitta: This place requires two seperate reviews. The sushi is esquisite and delicious! The ramen not so much...it lacks flavor and pressence. Overall pretty good place, especially for the sushi. Very fresh and yummy

Thomas Corcoran: あなたの料理は私の子供時代を思い出させた I grew up over in Japan and this was spectacular. It took me back to my childhood. Service was great and server was exceptional. I had my meal modded to extra fish cakes and no egg. They had no problem doing it for me. The spicy miso broth was full bodied and the balance of spices masterful. When an inspired chef believes that they are creating edible works of gastronomic art... this is the quality and experience that results. Thank you. I will be back.

Candace M.: I had the Bento Box (Salmon Teriyaki) and it was delicious! I can with a group of people and we were all satisfied with the meal. The staff we nice and frequently asked us if we were good and refilled our glasses constantly. It's a small place so the whole group of 9 people weren't able to sit together, but it was the lunch rush. Definitely plan on coming here again!

Randy Adam: This restaurant is not open to the public for eat in seating. It is also not occupied with employees.

Htoo Myat: This place offers very good value on sushi specials, convenient for office drones and workers in the area for a quick lunch. Look for their 2-rolls and 3-rolls special. A lot of Dupont Circle and Chinatown Asian restaurants tried offering this kind of special before but they usually either charge too much, make very small rolls or just poor quality. This place offer regular sized rolls of good quality for their fair price and quick! Their ramen on the other hand, hasn't been impressive. I have made better flavored ramen out of instant ramen bags. To be fair, some instant ramen bags are very good but if I'm paying around 15 bucks, I expect more. The price is quite alright but because it's so mediocre, I feel like I should be paying less. I have also tried their bento box. It's pretty good but not a good value compared to sushi. In my opinion, there's just not enough food for lunch.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 (🍣🍱) 🤤🤤

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.

Elizabeth T.: Make a reservation before showing up on the weekend, this place was packed. Luckily we got 2 seats at the bar and the bartenders were awesome. They recommended a Japanese whiskey flight which was pretty cool. We got spicy edamame to start, and honestly can’t recall the name of the rolls but one was topped with steak which was an interesting twist to this Japanese Peruvian mash up. In my opinion the rolls had too much rice, and they didn’t serve with any wasabi. I can’t say the sushi blew me away but honestly the bar, service and environment made a perfect date night.
Response: Thank you Elizabeth for stopping by. The roll with the steak is Lomo Saltado. We appreciate your feedback and looking forward to serving you again.

Ben Multak: Really fun cuisine and flavors of the fusion come together in a really interesting way. Been here a few times and am usually pretty impressed with the quality compared to other sushi I have had in the area. Will have to come back to try Waygu since they were out this time. Lomo Saltado roll was savory but not too heavy. I also enjoyed that most of the rolls already had some spice and were really well balanced. Cocktails are also awesome. Highly recommend their Pisco drinks you can’t really go wrong. Service was attentive and made sure to check in frequently.
Response: Thank you Ben and for the great feedback! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Alex A: This places is absolutely beautiful loved the location away from M st. but still close enough to go walk around or go shopping after a meal. Food was plated nicely. Service was good.I did have high hopes for the miso soup but was a tad bit salty for my liking. Over all would definitely be coming back to try more item on the menu.

Stephanie Medina: Susheria was incredible! The service was prompt and our server was incredibly kind and helpful. We couldn’t decide what options we wanted so we got a few, based on our servers recommendation. The veggie goyza were welll-cooked, the tuna tatami was well-prepared. We tried a few nikkei rolls: the okabe (just a touch spicy, sweet and tasty!); the volcano (delicious crab meat and generous portions); chicha spicy (fantastic tempura and salmon!). For our mains, we got the Tofu & Eggplant Nikkei bowl and lomo saltado. The portions were fantastic for the price and we had to take them mostly home! This was a fantastic date night and we hope to be back to try their summer menu!

Tee A: Stepped in here for a birthday dinner and enjoyed myself. It’s a restaurant that specializes in Sushi right in Georgetown. I had the Volcano sushi with a side of calamari. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the food was decent, but not wow to me, but the price is affordable. There is a garage near by for those looking for parking. I would visit again for sure.
Response: Thank you Tee for your visit. We are always working towards improvement and we look forward to hosting you again.

Henry Brandmark: We were excited to try out this spot! The drinks were delicious however the sushi was solid but very overpriced. Great Gatsby esc atmosphere

Dana L.: I have been here twice and had an amazing experience each time. The staff here is very welcoming and kind. And very attentive. I think we had the sweetest waitress ever. The sushi is pretty good. They have a few vegetarian options for people who don't eat fish which is great for me because I still love sushi. The drinks are really good too. I had an old fashioned with Japanese whiskey. I definitely recommend this place if you like sushi and your in the Georgetown area.

Kathleen Evangelista: We had Ines as our server and she was extra sweet. She greeted us “happy anniversary” since I had mentioned it on our reservation. The vibe was very chic and also laid back. I loved the decoration! Ines was very sweet and had checked up on us to make sure we were good. The food was delicious. I definitely would come back and recommend this restaurant!
Response: Thank you Kathleen! Happy Anniversary! Ines is a great addition to our team and we are lucky to have her! Looking forward to hosting you soon!

Hymanot T: Atmosphere is beautiful. I was so excited to try this place. The old fashioned was very good. Sushi was mediocre but over priced and the lava desert… tasted like a microwaved cake. My waiter was professional but very slow, he disappeared for long stretches of time and the food itself also took quite some time to come to the table.

Betsy Bonilla: Had a great time with my family. The staff was amazing and very attentive. Pattie made our evening. Every time we had a question or concern she was on it. Can’t wait to go back. Thanks Pattie, you help make my birthday amazing! Thank you!

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!
