Not your usual sushi place, but better!

Lots going on and on. It's the best ROCK / Indie bar with sushi and craft beer. Down on H street is your best choice for a fun weekend start. Ask for the Godzirra and a Public DC Brau.

Nice place and very good staff. Nice noodle and rice plates! I tried three. The Mongolian beef was the best. Really worth the visit.

We ordered take out to eat in our hotel. The food was great, but it did take quite a while for them to prepare. Call ahead at least thirty minutes if you'll be picking up takeout food. So I sat at the bar while I waited. They had plenty of good choices of beer and booze, so I picked a... More

This place is a unique sushi spot not like any other. The menu has sushi and some interesting bowls that you definitely have to try. Will definitely go again.

We went to Sticky Rice as Toki Underground two doors down was full, and had a two hour wait on a Monday night. We opted for Sticky Rice, as my colleague went there before, and had a good experience. The greeting server at the door was extremely nice. We liked the food, and the rolls were very innovative and creative,... More

I try to stop by this place even if I have plans to meet at another location near by. They have lots of great items on the menu. My favorite appraiser is their Crunchy Ribs. Yea, crunchy. The only problem is I always order seconds and then can't finish my entree. My favorite Entree is their Szechuan Shrimp over noodles.... More

The food was not bad but I expected better. Sushi was fine. I was hungry so it was good to eat but I have had amazing sushi and this just wasn't amazing. It was average.

Truthfully we had tried to get into Toki Underground next door though the wait was too long so we ended up here. There was also a wait (Friday night) but we were able to get a space at the bar. The food and drink menu was eclectic. We opted for an assortment of maki and sashimi which was delicious. Would... More

Each experience is different. Attentive, friendly service. Good fusion food as well as straight sushi. Really enjoyed the experience.

Sushi + A Fryer can only lead to good things. I love this place for something a little different. This is not where I would go if I was in the mood for classic simple sushi. They understand having fun and combining interesting flavors while staying grounded in what actually works. There are few reasons I would make the trip... More
