A local's delight!

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... read 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

Great location, walking distance from King St. Very good sushi, they have good lunch combinations available that include soup and salad. The place is very small and cozy. Domestic beer is a bit overpriced ($8) and teas is $3.50. Only comment was that we were literally kicked us out because at 3pm they had a personnel break so the end... More

We had lunch and Momo and ordered avocado, vege, crispy deep fried string beans and okra (without eel sauce) rolls and the vege tempura. For appetizers we had the vegetarian gyoza. The sushi rolls were fantastic but the vege tempura was so-so, not as crispy as I would have liked it. The restaurant was quite small with a pretty steep... More

Sometimes I drive 2.5 hrs to Alexandria, "visiting family" but really it's for Momo's. Yes you can expect a wait during peak hours but it is worth every minute.

The best sushi place in Old Town Alexandria. Its a small place so easily gets overwhelmed...I usually do take out. Staff is friendly and efficient. The sushi chefs work extremely fast but do struggle sometimes with keeping up. BUT the prices are very good and sushi very fresh.

Had lunch there yesterday. It was excellent. I recommend sitting on the 2nd floor during winter and first floor during summer... Heat rises... Sushi was really great, fresh, big portions and staff friendly. Had tea, salad and soup. Very much enjoyed this meal:)
