Hidden Gem in Olney

Just had lunch there after a lapse of many years. Happy to report that it is still a delight. It is wedged into a tiny, ugly strip center bounded by a gas station and a garage; just getting there can be a challenge, and the parking isn't great. Not much to look at from the outside, but once you... read more

This is the best sushi in the area. We've been coming here for many years. Delicious sushi rolls. I also enjoy the green salad and the spinach salad. Great service.

Went there for lunch. Had been once before and very pleased. Got a lunch special with sushi and sashimi. Asked what was in it and waitress said chef's choice. How bad could that be. 1/3 uneatable is how bad. Salmon and tuna OK. What's with 3 red snappers pieces big and chewy. One pickled eel? Had to spit out. I... More

Been having sushi here since 2001 and it has always been of amazing quality. Always fresh and nicely prepared, never had an issue. Our favorites are sushi regular, Hawaiian sunset roll but we have tried others and they were great as well. We always get the miso soup and edamame too. The staff ladies and the chef are very nice...

I was running errands in Olney and I was in the mood for sushi... Since this was the only sushi place in Olney my choices were limited. What who cares... This place rocked! Generous servings and reasonable price! I may need to find an excuse to come to this area more often!

I have persnickety family members when it comes to sushi and it was quite a surprise to find a first-rate shop in an out of the way side street (although it is next door to a highly rated French-Belgian eatery). The selections were fresh; no noise; the portions were ample; and the staff was very helpful in explaining options and... More

Sushi was good - the mushroom miso soup is especially good. Prices a little high. Asian Zen in Burtonsville rates higher with us for sushi restaurants.

Love everything that we order - always fresh and plentiful. We have both eaten in and done take out, never let us down. Specialty rolls are a favorite, we ask if the chef has anything in particular new that he wants to try. highly recommend!
