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

I ate at Momo Sushi while attending a business conference in Alexandria in November 2012. The location is just off the main tourist area, and the restaurant was busy on a Friday night with lots of locals in attendance. I ate at the sushi bar, which was the only spot available. I ordered a variety of sushi items a la... More

Pricey but FANTASTIC sushi. Went here for a lunch date and was pleasantly surprised. The service was great but was pricey. I will definitely be back.

After trying the other selections in old town, this is by far the best. The atmosphere is nice, but slightly cramped downstairs (have not been upstairs yet). Everything tasted fresh, friendly staff and quick service.

Not the best sushi in the world, but worth a visit if you live in the area. Of course, this is the DC area, so expectations are lower than a restaurant in Japan. Cramp seating on the first floor, so ask to sit upstairs if you want more space--note: they do not accept reservations. My group tried the sushi, tempura,... More

This was recommended by a friend of a friend. We had never heard of it, but gave it a shot and I am very glad we did. Although small and close quarters, the food was top notch. The service was good and the price was great. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys sushi.

I chose this restaurant because my friend is a sushi eater and Tripadvisor said that this is the best place in Alexandria for sushi. I don't eat sushi, but a review of Momo's website showed that they had other dishes that I could eat, so I gave it a shot. My friend enjoyed the dinner - me, not so much.... More

We enjoyed a delicious sushi dinner at Momo Sushi last week. The restaurant is casual but the food and service were excellent. Strongly recommend!
