Nice sushi

The sushi is fresh, but the restaurant is not. It always feels a bit dirty. Maybe the diners are a bit sloppy, but they could tidy it up when a table of diners leaves.

When you enter, you feel like you have left Rockville! It's very cosy, kind of small, but it has its charm. The all-you-can-eat Buffet it's really good, though not my favorite part of this place. I really like the sushi, it tastes very fresh and it's always delicious! The soups are so good, I can't even decide on one specific... More

This restaurant is closing in about July 19 and has had a really good sushi buffet. It has two other counterparts in Montgomery County-- one is in Rockville, and I believe it has the same format.

Best deal in Bethesda on Friday night. Almost reluctant to spread the word, but for the sake of Western civilization, I share a dining nugget in sleepy Bethesda. Sure there are plenty of sushi options around town, a few even within walking distance, but on Friday nights, there's no comparison. An all you can eat buffet of tempura and sushi,... More

Hinode at Hampden Lane in Bethesda has the best sushi bar in the Bethesda area. The sushi bar also includes excellent tempura, and some good vegetable side dishes (the cooked, shredded spinach with sesame is excellent when available). The assortment of available sushi is outstanding, and standouts include the unagi, the many composed rolls, and the salmon roll creations. The... More

We love their sashimi, tempura, agedofu, etc etc. Go there frequently because it's quiet and casual, service is always excellent, price is right, food always good. We prefer ordering from menu instead of buffet, mostly because we think it's fresher. The salad that comes with the meal is the only so-so dish, but that's not what we go for. The... More

Lunchtime features an imaginative all you can eat buffet. Take what you eat, but eat what you take. They charge an extra $1.50 for leftovers on your plate! Seriously! Bonus-- sweet potato sushi.
