Momo offers very high quality sushi and a very pleasant atmosphere in beautiful Old Town Alexandria, right next door to long time great, Bilbo Baggin's. The standards are all well done, and there are some nice specials. The SAKE selection is pretty extensive and fairly priced, as is not always the case in Sushi places. There is a lot of... More

A little pricey, but that's to be expected with the real estate near the beach. The place is hopping full, but they kept the tables cleared and reset quickly, and it never appeared to be more than a five minute wait. There is also a second floor with the same seating and additional sushi bar/staff. So, don't let the appearance... More

This little hidden sushi joint is one for the books! Great service, a mellow atmosphere, fresh, fresh, and fresh sushi! I have never been disappointed and I've tried at least one new roll every time. Well done Momo's!

This little place is probably THE best sushi place! Unpretentious, laid back, tiny, and most of all fabulously delicious! You will not find really fancy sushi creations here, just super fresh, delicious staples! At very reasonable prices! Can't wait to get back...most likely the day after tomorrow :-)

This is our favorite spot for sushi in Old Town. The restaurant is very small. I would recommend calling ahead to get take-out and enjoying it back at your house/hotel, particularly if you don't want to wait.

During DC cherry blossom, it is good idea to eat Japanese food. We purely pick up this place based on tripadvisor review. We arrive a little bit late, around 8:30pm. It is small and packed. When we arrived and waitress told us we need wait for 30 mins and a couple of guys ahead of us. We felt starved and... More

Yes you will wait, or you can order take out. This small charming sushi house is top notch. You will NOT be disappointed. The only thing I might mention, is that if you are on a budget, ask for the price of the specials before you order. They were much more expensive than the other items. This being said, the... More

I've been here several times with friends and always have high-quality, delicious sushi. I recommend it to anyone looking for sushi. Maybe not recommended if you have a large group as it is tiny. Upstairs is a little more spacious. Service is efficient and although it's not cheap, it's worth the price for the high quality meal.
