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

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 fish, tartar... 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

We return again and again to Moby Dick's for their excellent sushi, miso soup and cooked entrees (our favorite is the salmon). A family-run restaurant, the service has always been terrific. Our young children love the edamamae, miso soup, shrimp tempura and California rolls and always appreciate the children's chopsticks that are provided. The sushi is spot on 90% of... More

Gnocchi Sorrentina in Positano. Pizza at DiFara's in Brooklyn. And the spicy, crunchy tuna roll at Moby Dick's. The three best things I've ever eaten. No, this is not the House of Kabob. It is tucked away, a real hole in the wall. I missed it the first couple of years I lived in Silver Spring because I could not... More
