Teriyaki and Sushi Dinner Box

I don't know that you can really judge sushi by a California roll but, we thought Momo was pretty good. We both had dinner boxes with sushi and teriyaki. My hy husband also had the tempura which was light (for a fried food) which it should be. Parking is right across the street which is also a... read more

Went there around 5pm on a Sunday and it was just starting to get busy. I had heard that due to the small size of the restaurant and the good food there is always a wait, unless you get there early. This is now our new sushi spot in NoVa. Very good rolls with excellent portions of fish in them.... More

Was referred by some locals to eat here. Sushi was good, and was priced as expected (not cheap, not pricey). Nice selection of sake - always enjoy unfiltered sake and they had a couple options. Service was prompt and friendly. Enjoyed.

Off the beaten track in Old Towne Alexandria, this little sushi place is the best sushi that old town has to offer. Their specialty rolls are excellent. The sushi is always fresh and the chef is very imaginative.

Excellent food and the service is lovely. The menu is typical and the prices are average. This little gem is worth the find.

We had tried many area sushi restaurants hoping to find an "everyday" one that could stack up against some of the finer, similar places we had tried on the West Coast. We stopped looking once we found Momo. It is no coincidence that this place often has lines out the door. The sushi chefs here are excellent, producing delicious food... More

The fish variety was great and the fish was lovely and fresh and full of flavour. Didn't really need and soy sauce as it ruined the flavours. The rice was of a good consistency so held together and wasn't all sweet like some sushi's can be. Really enjoyed it along with the fried soft shell crab.

Good sushi, good value. Spider, Dynamite and Spicy rolls are all very tasty with very fresh ingredients.

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 something kinda quick and different. plus... 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!
