Great food.

Great spicy tuna, And spicy salmon. Service was quick, but the waitress was a little cold and un-inviting.

Hidden away in a residential area of Old Town Alexandria MoMo Sushi & Café is a very good sushi restaurant. Although I'm a neophyte when it comes to sushi I found the offerings fresh, tasty and very appealing. Fortunately I was guided in my selection by others in my party more familiar with Japanese cuisine. This is a restaurant that... More

This review is concentrated on food only and does not reflect on service or atmosphere. The food can be described by one word - rice. Ordering sushi rolls there is like ordering many colors and flavors of rice. It was heavily dominating ingredient in the rolls that were ordered and that were their priciest rolls. The prices themselves are not... More

A little jewel on Queen St in Alexandria. Very good sushi. The sashimi was fresh and we had a couple of exceptional rolls. Add a decent bottle of inexpensive wine and it makes for a very enjoyable experience! Don't expect a fancy decor, just really good sushi.

They were very friendly to us, as we had a rather spunky child with us, and although the seating is limited and cozy, it felt very inviting and accommodating. The sushi was excellent and being able to watch the sushi being made was fascinating. Reservations are recommended for weekends or at least call ahead, there isn't much space to wait,... More

Tiny space, two blocks off King Street, two blocks off the waterfront, not touristy, but the best sushi and the freshest fish anywhere. Outstanding.

When it comes to experimenting at sushi restaurants we are always cautious. This place is a solid good diviner every time. We don't worry about whether we will have a good meal. It's always consistent. The tempura is always lights and perfect. I wish the location had a better waiting area outside when there is a wait. They use every... More
