This is one of our favorite sushi places in the area. Everyone is super nice and the food is always super fresh and flavorful. We went this past Saturday on a whim, we hadn't made up our minds on where to go and everyplace else was packed so we gave it a shot to see if we could get in.... More

The service is excellent and the sushi is fresh. One of my main staples is the sunomono appetizer and the green salad (the dressing is yummy). They always have sushi, drink, and dessert specials and you can get food for carry out. Although I normally get sushi, they do have other meal choices. When I want a nice sushi dinner,... More

We have been hearing about this restaurant for some time, & were finally able to go there on date night. We were greeted by three welcoming, warm smiling faces. Our server, Wendy, asked if we've visited the restaurant before & took our drink order. We ordered the Saketini, which is a martini that our server suggested with Gin, Sake, &... More

I drive over 45 minutes to have sushi at Otani, Great service, really exciting and tasty specialty rolls. Definitely not the cheapest sushi in the DMV, but most definitely worth the price. Amazing tuna roll is delicious and my favorite. I highly recommend Otani.

Have been coming here since they first opened (they had no liquor lic. so it was byob then.) Great fresh sushi and the specials are particularly good. They also do party platters and I had gotten one for my Christmas party that was a hit for all the guests. Very elegant interior also. Do not judge it by the strip... More

We have been to Otani many times and each has not disappointed. Their sushi and sashimi are consistently fresh and flavorful, and the presentation is always excellent. Their menu of saki is encompassing, along with Japanese beers. Service has been very friendly and prompt, whether eating in or carrying out. We look forward to Otani when we decide to do... More

For me to take time to write about anything is extremely rare. Otani is a hidden treasure inside a small strip mall. Looks (of outside) are very deceiving because on inside you will find a restaurant that has all qualities a person looks for in a restaurant. First, very clean. Second, best service of any restaurant I have ever been... More

High priced, but wonderfully delicious! The sushi and sashimi we had were all fresh and beautifully presented. We had seafood udon and a few different rolls, and gyoza dumplings and all of it was fantastic! This is the best and most authentic Japanese place we have found. The atmosphere is nice, and the staff were all very friendly. It is... More

I limped into this restaurant a few days ago having just injured my knee a few days prior and was treated like a vagrant. I ordered the hibachi filet mignon to go while pointing to the hibachi lunch on the menu and was told that the charge was $29.34. When I asked why it was more then double the stated... More
