Chicken Teriyaki

Great little lunch spot. not good for larger groups. I've been there several times, and the chicken T lunch box is good, the chicken teriyaki is super tender, ive never had it like that. my coworker always gets a box lunch#1 and he likes the sushi dish. I'd come here if youre looking for... read more

Always good to do business with a BUSY sushi restaurant. Very fresh fish, and one heck of a "Dragon Roll," if that's your thing. Cramped seating arrangements, but all in all a notch above what one would expect for sushi in Alexandria. BTW: very good sake!

We went to have dinner with neighbors and enjoyed the meal a lot. The service for the most part was great until we asked to leave once we paid our check because there was another party waiting. We realized that's there was no one waiting.

The food was great and the service was better than expected although they were extremely busy during dinner time. This is hands down, one of the best sushi spots in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area, where you know that you can always count on quality fish and decent service. I highly recommend the trip if you are in... More

Was walking around downtown King Street near the water, and wanted some sushi. This place opens at 4:00 PM, so we were the first customers to go in. They have 2 floors, we just ate on the first floor. Small dining area. SERVICE WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!! There was only 3 of us in the dining room, and our waitress was... More

Being a local, I absolutely recommend Momo Sushi to anyone visiting the area - the sushi is priced evenly with other locations, but the amount and quantity can't be beat. Get there early, and if there's more than two of you be prepared to wait. No lingering - they're busy and people need to get in, but it's SO GOOD... More

Fantastic sushi bar...small restaurant on the northern edge of Old town only about 10 tables but GREAT sushi that can compete with anything in NYC or Seattle. Has carry out with limited seating but worth the wait.

I felt compelled to write this review after reading some of the numb skull reviews from others. I've been coming here for years and Momo's has never disappointed. Certainly they have had their off nights, but that amounted to waiting an extra 2 minutes for a green tea refill or something just a small. The food is always good and... More

I went to Momo Cafe on a Tuesday afternoon after work because I was craving sushi. When I got in the quaint little cafe, a waitress helped me navigate the carry out menu so I could order sushi. I ordered a volcano roll and a spicy salmon roll. When I got home, I tried the volcano roll first. And it... More
