I have been looking for good quality sushi since I've moved to the DC/Alexandria area and I have finally found the sushi I've been waiting for! The sushi was awesome, fresh, and provides a good size portion too. The place is small and gets busy fast. I decided to do takeout and they provided all the necessary utensils along with... More

Very good sushi in a lovely setting - great spot for meeting up with a friend - not too noisy, well lit, and very good food with generous portions.

I love this place! They pretty much know be my name and have my order made when I walk in the door! Owners are very friendly! Sushi is by far the best I have found in the DC area! The place is small (even though I have seen it grow through the years) and while you may have to wait... More

Momo's has great service, great selection and definitely the best sushi in Alexandria. Some of the larger portions of sushi I've seen before as well. Great place!

This is a tiny place but it offers very good quality and variety of Japanese food at a reasonable price. Sashimi is for me the test of a good Japanese restaurant and Momo showed very well. They have all the well known stars of Japanese cuisine plus daily specials which are imaginative and tasty. We had 2 in our group... More

Went here on a Saturday night with some locals and it was fantastic. The atmosphere is quaint and you can smell the freshness of the fish when you walk in. Great reasonable prices for very quality sushi. 100% recommend it!

Fresh made to order sushi in a simple yet friendly setting. Think this is the best sushi I've had on this side of the country. My only regret is that I haven't been here before.

Momo is off the beaten track, about 2 blocks from King street. It looks like a big nothing from the outside and less than that on the inside. Despite the looks, the sushi is excellent, the service is fast, and the prices are reasonable. Well worth the visit!

It's a small place, but so worth your time. It is off the beaten path, but only two short blocks. Skip Bilbo Baggins next door which makes more noise but not nearly as good food.
