Try the Tartar Roll

This is a tiny spot that is very easy to miss. Once you find this gem in the heart of Wheaton you will be happy because the sushi is always fresh. Moby Dick Sushi is good for take-out (if you live nearby) or dining in. The Tartar roll is an interesting creation full of deliciousness - Fried white... read more

Love the dressing on the salad. Homemade and very yummy. Soft shell crab tempura appetizer is crunchy and delicious. Sashimi assortment is a good variety of fish if you don't want the carbs from sushi rice. We also love the Boston roll. This is our favorite sushi place!

We drove through a winter storm to get to Moby Dick's. We had read so many good reviews and decided to try it out! We love our sushi and will drive far to get it! We arrived at 8pm on Valentines Day. First off no one greeted us or sat us down. We had to go to the back of... More

I've been to Moby Dick many times, most recently this past Monday. My friends got bento boxes and I had the tempura udon, with a few sushi rolls. I was going for comfort food that particular day, and Moby Dick did not disappoint. The udon noodles were plump and tasty, and the broth was perfect. The tempura was perfect. For... More

I was in the mood for Japanese (udon soup!) and this place came up in google searches. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was so tasty, the service was great, and I liked the simple, homey decor of the place. Will definitely be back!

I ordered take out for dinner. Was very impressed with the rolls. We ordered the crunchy spicy tuna roll (my favorite), the Alaskan roll, tuna tempura and the rainbow roll. All very fresh and tasty. Nice to find a good place closer to home. Don't have to go to Bethesda or DC for sushi now. I would definitely recommend.

My wife and I tried out the sushi here because it was recommended by our neighbors. It was really great. I found the menu had a large selection (even for a picky sushi eater like me) and the food was delicious. I especially enjoyed the spicy tuna roll. The place was crowded, but they sat us even without a reservation.

I live nearby and eat here on a regular basis. It's definitely one of the better restaurants in the area. I had a few occasions recently where the service was less than par, and they brought my friends food out 15 minutes before mind.

We hadn't gone to Moby Dick in a long time, but went again tonight. The sushi was terrific! We had sweet potato roll (new to us), crunch spicy tuna roll, and dynamite roll. It was a very good combination of spicy and sweet, according to the woman who co-runs the restaurant with her husband, Chang Pyon, who is a first-class... More

This book can't be judged by its cover. Small, and not much to look at, but the food is wonderful. There is obviously much care taken in the selection of ingredients and the preparation, which seems to be true of fewer sushi places these days. Everything I've tried has been great, but the spicy tuna rolls are my favorite....the chicken... More
